No-Comply: “IT’S ALL DOWNHILL FROM HERE” Photos

Two summers ago, No-Comply skateshop received an unexpected demolition notice posted outside of our building. We made a “Save Our Shop” Instagram post, and the skateboarding community stepped up for us with an unprecedented number of emails and phone calls to the city. This led to our landlord working with us, ultimately providing a larger space on the same block—even slightly closer to House Park skatepark. And although we were sad to leave our home of 15 years, we are excited to share our new spot with you—and proud that it’s 100% designed and built out by members of our local skateboarding community. These images are from our grand reopening celebration, along with photos from our recent video It’s All Downhill From Here by Calvin Millar, which showcases our scene and celebrates our 16 years of business. Thank you, skateboarding. —Elias Bingham

I’ve always had love for No-Comply's 812 W 12th location, but once the notice to vacate came, my appreciation grew stronger. Knowing the time left was limited, I was more aware of taking it all in and capturing as much as I could. The timing of the move coinciding with the shop's 16-year anniversary gave me an opportunity to make a love letter to the space. The scene in Austin is so unique and I’m blessed to be a close witness to all of its talent. The 812 chapter is closed and now IT’S ALL DOWNHILL FROM HERE… just 43 steps away, literally down the hill. I’m feeling stoked about what’s in store for 824 W 12th! The future is in good hands with our crew. Thank you to everyone involved with the move, the build out, the shredding, the filming, the photos, the love, the past, present and future! Shout out, Texas skateboarding! —Calvin Millar
