Rad Collector - Tony Manfre Interview
Shut pro Tony Manfre has a dope new interview up at 48Blocks. Amongst other pearls, he drops this story about getting stuck for his board at EMB in San Francisco.

Yeah – I got ripped off by some punk immediately at EMB. He was like “where you from” and then he pretty much just took my board and skated off with it. When my mom came to pick me up she was like “where’s your board?” When I told her what happened she went across EMB, found the kid and said “where did you get that board” the punk says “I got this from my homeboy.” My mom’s all “I bought that board motherfucker” and took it. The whole bench of people where like “OOOOOOHHHHHHH” and I got my board back. I was twelve or thirteen.
