Skating in Minneapolis is no joke. Bit like north of Europe, they have a long winter, a short summer and not the smoothest of all grounds. Steve Nesser and Yuri Loginov's skateshop Familia has been feeding the scene with product, events and a hangout for years. Nike SB Chosen has a new episode on the story of the shop.

We did a story on Yuri a couple of years back, in connection to his involvement with Familia. Yuri has recently returned to Europe and now resides in Estonia, where he's from originally. Peep back here for the original story from the mag and an update to come soon. For now, also see Familia's video from 2009 on mpora.
