Keeping hunger and nic fits down, the cornerstores that support The Rice Block in Vancouver, Kalamata in Calgary, Elephant Direct and Dimestore in Montreal have given each city’s crew more than just their names.
To be taken seriously any self-respecting skateboard crew needs a few things. Some are obvious, like a headquarters and a signature spot. For the first, either a house (preferably low rent, durable) or a store (low prices, still durable) will do. Number two could be a local park or a significant street spot. Of course, these are only two of the countless things that give each particular group its flair. All these choices combine to form the heart of a crew; and crews, in turn, form the heart of skateboarding.
