We are stocking up for the 2012-13 winter season here at EB. If you have something in particular you're interested in riding this year don't wait too long to grab it. With the way last winter went, most companies have cut back to some degree with the amount of product made for this winter. Even last year a lot of the higher end gear was sold out by Thanksgiving in certain sizes and colors. Ya snooze ya lose...
Here's a bunch of shots of some of the gear we have in stock right now.

Cult complete wheel sets and their new grip, Primo Hollow Bites and plastic sleeve Binary pegs in green and blue.


If you were a Leominster EB shopper a few years back you would probably remember Juwels working here. Juwels and her husband Peter both rip skating and have spent the last few years doing some traveling and starting up a company called Pollen Arts. They make natural beeswax candles in unique vintage bottles leaving all the details in the wax. Check them out. If you like it then pick something out sometime as a gift or for yourself. Support real skaters and two very rad people.
