I’ll be the first to admit that Zoo York is an acquired taste. However, if you’re down for skating, enjoying the asphalt and concrete playgrounds of the world or even just the Big Apple… you’ll find something to your liking in the Zoo Crew. Personally, I’m hyped on Suski and Bassett. I just caught a glimpse of the rest of the team From the King of the Road but Aarron and Zered…please. How can you not enjoy their style? Anyway not to leave the world hanging but Zoo i having quite the week. Lets recap the blitzkrieg they’ve levied upon our internets, shall we?
