You still don’t know how to nail a kickflip or grind a rail, and at this point you never will. But at least you can look good attempting it, and that’s half the battle. The new FLIPSIDE SKATE SHOP in Bristol has you covered, with plenty of DC gear (we need some of that Big Black apparel line pronto) and stuff from Circa, Surefire, and Von Zipper shades. Flipside is a small, skater-owned shop along the Independence Trail in Bristol and has quickly become a hotspot for local skate rats, offering a wall of multi-flavored decks for sale and all the accessories to get rolling. Kicks and hoodies, trucks and stickers — Flipside has you covered. And be on the lookout for Friday movie nights at the shop (such as the Dogtown and Z Boys documentary), where the $5 admission includes a slice of pizza and a can of pop. Gift cards are now available.
