MAX HESH is short for Maximum Hesh, a Boston based skateboard shop in Somerville MA. As most skate shops do in 2017, they make skate gear and apparel branded with their name on it.
The name of the shop came from owner and founder Todd Brugman screen printing some joke issues of iconic Punk Rock Zine “Maximum Rock and Roll”. As a result naming the shop Max Hesh on a whim. Consequently Max Hesh uses a 1980s American Hardcore Punk Rock ascetic.
Most Noteworthy is the shops strong ethics of welcoming all and only carrying the highest quality goods. They don’t follow the 2017 skateboard shop playbook. That is a huge shoe wall and tons of clothing that isn’t skate companies. Rather they focus on there decks, wheels, bearings, trucks, bolts, nuts, rails and more. Number one is skateboard hard goods, and goods that meet their quality standards. Max Hesh doesn’t carry a company just because it is popular, they carry it only if it is they highest quality skate product available. No sub par quality decks hang on their walls. This has gained them a reputation of trust within the local scene, with a core following. All ages and genders of skaters can be found there on any given day. They promote inclusive skating not exclusive hence adopting the slogan “Skate Among Us”, taken from the Misfits Album Walk Among Us. Most noteworthy is that they are a skaters skate shop, that is all skaters from all backgrounds and experience levels.
