Skateboarding goes through economic ups and downs, and when it starts to look bleak, it’s the people who actually care about skateboarding, who will do anything to make it work, that will survive. Eugene Kang is one of these people, running Terminal skateshop out of his tiny living room in NYC, making a living selling skateboards. There are no store hours or restrictions: If he picks up the phone and he’s awake, he’s open for business. Eugene will even deliver and bring skate goods to you, if you aren’t too far away of course. With the skateshop only being advertised through word of mouth, the shop isn’t that well known outside of his neighborhood yet. To find out more, we took the train uptown to check out his apartment / shop and documented this local’s story with support from Levi’s Skateboarding.
