Vinny Ponte & Jason Morgan have had Rival skate shop (225 Hudson Street, NYC) since 2004. As of this past Friday (11/27/2009) Rival has tranformed into the new . has been open in Williamsburg, Brooklyn for a little over 3 years now on the corner of Roebling Street & Metropolitan Avenue. They sell a wide variety of skateboarding & street wear brands including their own collection and have the same Skating/Hip Hop vibe that Rival had (check out the vid clip above). We wish Nick Langela and Teddy King along with their good luck with the new shop…. R.I.P Rival!
