The Boardr Store Gainesville Grand Opening

Posted by Rob Meronek on Thursday, May 14, 2015

Well that was a fun day starting with an afternoon of skating and ending with a night of PBR, pizza slices, rolling dices, and other vices. Thanks again to the tight skateboarding community in Gainesville for the warm welcome. We've got some photos and video to recap the night.

We're completely geared up leaving Tampa with the #BoardrBus and the adidas Toyota Tundra. Gainesville is a pit stop on our way to adidas Skate Copa Atlanta this weekend.
