Rad! Get Down Right Evil
Chris Bradley is the man. I've never not been stoked seeing this dude around. Even when he would bust into Seaboard, wake me up, turn on Matlock at 9am and tell me to get up. He's a rad human. Stories could go for days. He loves skateboarding. Too much probably. But he's got this Get Rad shop in Athens that sits beside the 40 Watt. It's small. Like tiny in comparison to "todays skate shops". It shares space with a solid record store. And it reminds me of a shop that you'd walk into from the 80's. There's no flashy watches or Nike limited BS anywhere. Skateboards behind the counter. Wheels, trucks, stickers and shit in the display case.........
...Fuck, wrong direction, I must have thought this was Yelp! look, Bradley rips. He threw some ramps and stuff out in the middle of the street a couple of weekends ago and called it a contest. If your not down with shit like that then you probably won't be a fan of the store and did good by going to the Street League demo that was on the same day. Skateboarding isn't rocket science. You do things you feel and hope people can vibe off that. Get Rad is an amazing shop. If you're close you should stop in.
.....I'd give 'er 5 stars, I'd s'pose....
