SHUT SKATEBOARDS - with Eli Gesner SHUT Skates started out as a tight-knit crew hanging out and skating in Washington Square Park, and in 1986, became New York's first skateboard company. With a team that introduced Sean Sheffey, Chris Pastras, and Jefferson Pang, SHUT Skates exposed the skate world to a powerful style of skating that became known as "East Coast"—rough, rugged, and raw. Now, SHUT operates their shop in the Lower East Side (a skater's vision of a tricked-out mechanic's garage). The creator of the original SHUT crest logo, Eli Morgan Gesner, takes you through a brief history of Shut and is living proof that sometimes the most enduring cultural influence can come from the most modest of beginnings.
