Poolesville Teens Open Up The Skate Shack 301

Transworld Business reports that while most high school seniors are worrying about where to apply to college and homecoming, Rudy Martin and Sid Egly spend their time running their own skateboard shop. Based out of Poolesville, Maryland, the two boys, both 17, opened up The Skate Shack 301 about five months ago, and haven’t looked back since.

For Martin and Egly—who both started skating close to eight years ago—the shop and the culture surrounding it has become a big part of their lives. “As the years went by we realized we weren’t quite good enough to become professional skaters, but we wanted to keep the sport of skateboarding a part of our life,” says Egly. “We knew enough about skateboarding that we could help others achieve this goal or at least help them have fun skating.”
