Co owner Dave Dunkle
shop tees...
One love is another one of those skater owned, skater operated stores. They work with the community on all levels, they bring in demos, they sponsor kids and provide a local spot to come grab all the latest gear. One Love has supported Instrument since the beginning, and we thank them for that. If you live in the Dayton/Kettering area,or you're just visiting the plaza, make sure this is where you buy your stuff. Support who supports you. plain and simple.. they are located at 1851 E. stroop rd. kettering, OH. (right down the street from the plaza) and you can learn more about them here.

I always been in Cincinnati when I was young, 16 years old, would catch the Greyhound solo and end up on the Block. Maybe Al or GC would get me from the station.

I'll skate a lot of things.

whats your set up?
Instrument 8.25, Independents. I got a weird bushing set up, blue doh-doh's on top, then Independent soft red bushings on the bottom. Turns the best. Spitfire Street Burners, 52's or so.
