Saints and Sinners in New Jersey


Creature skateboards is big in New Jersey. So big we even did a limited edition custom deck with them last year. When we heard that NJ Skateshop in Sayreville was going to be the first stop on the three week long Saints & Sinners tour that runs from New Jersey to Miami and that not only were all the Creature dudes were going to be there but Emanuel Guzman and Justin Strubing from Santa Cruz we were through the roof psyched. Then we found out OG street ruler Eric Dressen was coming and it was going to be his first time in Jersey and we knew we were about to witness something at the Sayreville skatepark that has never gone down in the seven years the park has been there. Our only concern? These dudes shred the gnar and the Sayreville Park was going to be too small for them. We were right. They skated the over-vert section like it was a knee-high ledge. Hands down the best bowl demo Sayreville has ever seen. Thanks, guys.
