Although snowboarding season is slowly coming to an end, Bird’s Eye Board Shop is just too awesome to not mention. Located at 55 Meadow St., not too far from the Grand St. L stop, Bird’s Eye is the one-stop shop for snowboard enthusiasts.
Bird’s Eye started out online from Steve Reaves’ second bedroom a little over 3 years ago, but got a new home in the East Williamsburg/Bushwick area this past October. What makes Bird’s Eye so great is that the products in the showroom have been carefully curated by Reaves himself, and every item has been chosen with care. “Everybody that is behind the brands that are in this shop – sure they want to make money, everyone has to pay the bills, but more than anything they are in it because they love snowboarding. They live it, they breathe it,” Reaves says.
You can find there some of the most popular brands such as Capita, Union, Holden and, Reaves’ personal favorite, Dinosaurs Will Die. I even spotted some accessories from one of my favorite brands – Herschel.
With the winter season winding down, Bird’s Eye is getting ready to become appointment only during the warmer months, but don’t let that stop you from checking out all the awesome gear!
