Good news for snowboard and skateboard manufacturers.
A recent article in the Brantford Expositor guides shoppers to Harry's Surf Skate Snow (185 King George Road), and for the next several paragraphs tells them what to buy.
"Skateboards continue to be a hot ticket item among young sports enthusiasts and if a new board is on their list this year, Harry’s is the place to be. Offering a large selection of skateboards, including complete decks that run from $85 and up, Harry’s will ensure your skateboarder is well equipped and ready to hit the skateboard park."
The article name-drops "hottest brands in snowboards," and skate shoe brands "Globe, I-Path, Circa, DC, Vans, Adio, Nike, and Fallen."
Although the article is a shameless plug, it carries a good point. Every kid wants skateboards and snowboards for Christmas.
