Talkin’ Schmit Ep. 64: Dandy Harris

With all that’s going on in the world lately, I decided to lengthen today’s show in hopes of bringing you something else to focus on and hopefully a few laughs as well. Today on the show is Dandy Harris (co-owner of 510 skateshop) discussing growing up in Northern California, meeting her future husband and opening a successful skate shop together in the heart of Berkeley, the Travis Scott Dunks rage, Fugazi at Dolores Park, Yeah Yeah Yeah’s at Bottom of the Hill, a call from Max Schaaf, donating to Treasure Island’s DIY and more. Oh, and “Dogs eat their own shit—we’re doing the cockroach yeah! ”

 


Early days…


1998


Jerry’s ready for biz…


Wedding day…


20 year celebration


Keepin’ it REAL with the big dawgs…

Talkin’ Schmit Ep. 61: Tony Tieu

T2 sits down at his home on the edge of Atherton and talks early SF days at EMB, FTC, going to school with Jovantae, Shortys, Santa Barbara skating with George Nagai, House of Skatin’, living with Ty Evans, shooting photos and much more on today’s episode.

Thanks again Tony, great catching up!

Talkin’ Schmit Ep. 60: Joe Fong

Born and raised in the SFC, Joe Fong talks Bombora, the Belmont Drop, Joe Lopes Ramp, hangin’ with Fausto and Eric and much more on today’s special 60th episode of Talkin Schmit. He also was instrumental in testing and developing the first Indy truck. Lots of history on this one—hope you enjoy it.


You say Belmont Drop, we say the Spillway. San Mateo hills early days, this is the first place I ever took my skateboard.
