Meet Jefferson Pang, New York City’s first official skate company’s first sponsored skater. Also, one of the most influential and culture-shaping riders this side of the East Coast. If it happened in The Big Apple’s golden-era ’90s onward and it involved a board, chances are that this man was there.
Now, almost two and a half decades (and an insane amount of expansion and cross-pollination of the culture) later, Shut Skateboards brings it back full circle by paying homage to their very first sponsored rider and his history. Check out the video up top to see Jeff Pang ripping through his stomping-ground streets (present and past) and showcasing his brand-new Shut Pang Deck to coincide. All to the hypnotic soundtrack of a dubbed-out Bam Bam by Chaka Demus & Pliers.
Fans of the 1986-born originators should also note that Shut’s got a brand-new website layout to make the cypher complete. Check it out here.
