LEARN OUR HISTORY:

  • Our founder, Little Davey Crabapple, had a loving grand-mammy who always gave him cider. When Davey got in a dust-up with Tom Blueberry—the original B-Boy—old Tommy poisoned Davey’s cider. But Davey’s grand-mammy drank it instead and violently perished. A vendetta was born! A week later, Johnny Junks, founder of the Skunks, told Little Davey that he’d never be any good at skatin’, thereby crushin’ his dreams. A second vendetta!
