A Video Collection of Eric Testerman's Skateboarding

Team rider Eric Testerman has been on our team for some time now and we were reflecting on just how good he is with over 4 years of footage on YouTube. Each one of these are killer parts and are so motivating to watch. Glad to have you on the team Erik!

Why do skateboarders buy one brand over another? Lots of reason.

Sometimes it is the skateboard company’s history. Every
skateboard brand has a history…the history is often what
makes people passionate. History for a skateboarding
company is usually related to the skaters involved.

For example some people starting buying Enjoi skateboards
because they liked and followed professional skateboarder
Marc Johnson. He founded the company with help by
Rodney Mullen in 1998 or 2000 (both dates appear online).

Or maybe because the motto means something to them,
Enjoi motto has and still is: "enjoy skateboarding; have fun!'
What skateboarder wouldn’t agree with that motto? No one!
Skateboard company logos are important too. Wearing them
shows your passion for skateboarding. Johnson has stated
that both the panda image and the name "Enjoi" were
derived from a dream. Skateboarders everywhere recognize
the Panda logo. Some even get tattoos to show their pride of
the lifestyle.

Plus, the graphics are always important when buying a
skateboard and why Enjoi has always had a great core
group of artist to produce their art. Enjoi’s website has a
page with videos with the current crew of artist and how they
came up with some of the designs. Check it out if you love
their art.

Longboard Wheels and Trucks for Sliding

There is nothing better than sliding on your Longboard. Besides some days--- sliding at the right time could save your life. 
To tune up your board for sliding the Galactic G’s team recommends you add the Randal  180 mmm 50 Degree Raw trucks and Sector 970mm Butterball wheels. 


Some have said that the Randal R-11 truck is the standard for a slider setup. Around since the 1970’s, these trucks are built to last and perform better than other brands. You can tighten them for downhill and loosen for around town. The truck is stable at speeds and still offers a lot of response with a wide turning radius.

These Butterball wheels will help control your slides, yet smooth because they are manufactured with right amount of grip to slip on most pavements. These urethane wheels are wide for stand up, hands down and sit down slides.

Galactic G Skateshop is located in the northern side of the Ivanhoe District in Orlando, Florida, is the oldest and largest core skateshop in Central Florida. The business has been around for more than 20 years and offers a place for people to learn about skateboard culture and shop a large selection of top name brands like NikeSB, Vans, Adidas, Etnies, DCshoes, Quietlife, and Primitive. We have over 800 different pairs of shoes to choose from, and a full room of skateboards and longboards.

Glactic G loves helping the community by hosting public events, and giving the kids of Central Florida a great and safe place to enjoy the sport of skateboarding. All employees skateboard and love helping you find the right equipment and apparel. 
We are open Monday –Saturday from 10am to 8pm and on Sunday from 12noon- 6pm.
