LNP Living Skateboarding
Laurent-Nicolas Paquin is now part owner of La Boutique Du Skate. Isn’t he a snowboarder? Hahaha. LNP rips on a skateboard. I was bummed that I moved on to the second round at this years’ contest at the Plaza de Quebec. Of course I got knocked out the next round. LNP wants to make a skater’s skateshop in Quebec. Every city should have one of those. Without Footloose as my hangout place and meeting place before a session, I would not be the person I am today. Maybe I would have quit skating if I would have had nowhere to hang out and meet different skaters. Some people call these places « core skateshops »; for me they are just skateshops. The other places that sell boards but don’t have time for the actually skaters are the blood suckers of the skateboard industry. I guess we need those too to open our eyes to how we should be treated as skaters. LNP and La Boutique Du Skate, good luck creating a home for skaters.
