U Got Skooled!

We recently went to U Got Skooled! A 3 on 3 bboy competition in Utah, at the University of Utah. One of the judges was our good friend Ruen! We, of course, entered the battle too. The event went great. Tons of bboys got their hands on some good Generation BBOY gear. If you haven't been to a Utah jam yet, DO IT! Also, we made it to top 5 which was interesting!

You can even get some of our best prices on our...

Abundance Mentality solves everything

  Abundance Mentality is a necessary concept for any BBOY to reach a world class status. It is the idea that a BBOY believes there are enough resources and success to share with others.
