In 1989, I got to befriend Ron Allen, professional skateboarder from H-Street Skateboards. This was at the pinnacle of my amateur skateboarding days, where I would skate day-in and day-out with skaters who would eventually become true legends of East Coast skateboarding. Ron and Matt Hensley (the other half of their “Dynamic Duo” of skateboarders) would come to The District, Maryland and Virginia (DMV) to put on demos for all the skaters that idolized them and emulated their every move. Back then, most of our local crew, including myself were shop-sponsored skateboarders and we would get to skate alongside Ron and Matt in those demos.
Fast forward, 25 years later, Ron Allen is still a ripping professional skateboarder and he also has a gift for rhyming (like he did back then). It is with an extreme honor that I get to host Ron at the SHUT LIVE show, in which Ron is headlining. There will be other live musical acts warming up the stage including Unified Struggle and PATH and Proper Balance. The show is FREE so please come on out for a good time and to support these talented artists.
Sunday night, 9/14 in #NYC the #RonAllen #NEVERSTOPPED TOUR takes the stage @ArlenesGrocery as a part of the latest installation of @shutnyc #SHUTLIVE. The lineup includes #UnifiedStruggle, #PATHandPROPERBALANCE #TheFlowDown and #mcINTELLIGENCE
If you don’t know, now you know… #RonAllen #NEVERSTOPPED! Check the details of @ronallensk8 aka MC INTELLIGENCE Raw Skating and #HipHop Fall 2014 Tour
It’s about to go down, so get down there and see NY’s best skateboarders go for the cash and a chance to go to South Africa.
If you haven’t seen this film here’s a great opportunity to #supportskateboarding hosted by @homage_brooklyn and @levisskateboarding
Back in the late ’80s Ron Allen and Matt Hensley were constantly on tour promoting H-Street Skateboards with demos like this one. This is a gem of a recording is provided by Clark Fraley and his dad Ed, who videotaped many of the demos that came through the greater Lynchburg, Va. area. Thanks you guys and #thankyouskateboarding.

What a great way to spend last Sunday afternoon watching spottampa Pro with all of these beautiful people. Some of us were glued to the TV and others came through for a bite and drink, either the way, the love was felt and appreciated.
Last Sunday, winners of the elsenornewyork and @shutnyc prizes from our podium poll. They were both stoked on their prizes.
Thank you massappeal for co-hosting the Live Streaming of Tampa Pro with skatechronicles this past Sunday. Everyone had a great time with drinks in their hands and delicious pizza in their stomachs. They also left with smiles on their faces after receiving all the giveaways from our sponsors. It was our first event but definitely not our last. Thank you to all who came out and stay tuned for more.
