NJ Skateshop thought it would be hilarious to have a Quasi Skateboards party on 4/20 but they’re burnt and forgot the date…so….5/20 it is!
This Friday come hang with 3 of New Jerseys Finest Gilbert Crockett, Dick Rizzo & Josh Wilsonn at NJ’s Hoboken shop.
Free beer, free Red Bull & vodka, free stuff from Vans and a special surprise guest. It’s gonna be the greatest 5/20 party ever! (And yes, they’re claiming Gil. He had that one trick in Propeller in NJ so now he’s from Jersey.)
