East Coast brand Politic Skateboards was launched by a group of friends wanting to take control of their scene and build something skaters in the region would be proud to support. "This is a labor of love for all of us. We all work other jobs to make this happen. It's not easy, but with all the extra work and long hours comes the freedom to grow Politic how we see fit. Our vision isn't dictated by sales or what the flavor of the month is, and that freedom is well worth the sacrifice," said one of Politic Skateboards owners Chip Marucci.
