34. North Dakota: THIS Skate and Snow
Fargo’s THIS Skate and Snow is North Dakota’s top shop. Hosting events and premieres, supporting local parks, and ushering the youth into the world of skateboarding is what THIS is all about. They are big supporters of The Hawk’s Nest, a members-only private bowl in Fargo that hosts events from time to time. Artist Todd Bratrud did the graphics for the THIS shop boards, and has done graphics for Creature, Flip, Consolidated, and many others, as well as his own company, Send Help.
THIS also offers refuge from the cold and wet North Dakota winter at their small indoor skatepark.
