That flip ad proves a point, who wants to ride for some company like that. Good thing they are under NHS, proud makers of stuff like:



Billabong is no worse than NHS, they are just more successful.

god you're a fucking piece of shit.  weren't you the guy who wouldn't stop talking about how daryl angel was an asshole even though you never meant him?  obviously your opinions have no basis in reality cause if youve ever meant daryl angel you know he is nice to everyone.  say what you will about some of the product nhs puts out, they are good to local skaters who need product, employ a ton of cool people, make the highest quality trucks in the world and do charitable work in the santa cruz area.  

edit: also in santa cruz there is a connection between skating and surfing because santa cruz is great for both and kids actually like to have fun in multiple ways.  the kid surfing in the ad (austin smith ford) grew up no more than 10 miles from the nhs factory and now they are hooking him up i think that's pretty rad.

How come Rohan doesn't show up in Pros or Icons?

um this.
This.  Dude deserves element paychecks even if I'd rather see him on something more legit.

Read what Gipper wrote and think about it, he and I don't always see eye to eye, but his point is on the mark here. Why the fuck is Flop calling out Element for being a surf company when Santa Cruz, who they're now in bed with, makes surfboards? They are the pot calling the kettle black, which is complete retardation.

Unfortunately, your point about Daryl is irrelevant and I'm sure Billabong employs plenty of "good" people somewhere in the world too so that doesn't really prove anything either...

I'm not sure I believe Appleyard. Check out his facial expression at the end when he says he's hyped. I can't tell for sure but it looks kind of forced, like he's not really that sure about this move.

http://www.thrashermagazine.com/articles/magazine/mark-appleyard-interview/

What's been on your mind lately?
I'm always thinking of ways to live leisurely. Ways to, you know, get rich.

Yeah, 'cause lately every time we're hanging out you're always talking 
about schemes so you'll never have 
to work again.
Exactly. I don't ever want to have to work. After skateboarding I don't think I could work.

Are you worried that you're not cut out for the world of employment?
Yeah. I'm just scared that I'm going to have to work, and I don't want to. And I like nice stuff-cars and houses. I like the leisurely lifestyle, so my mind's brewing on a lot of ideas. Sometimes they work out.

What are some of your winning ideas?
I had some money in United States currency and I waited until the Canadian currency was worth the most. When it was $1.00 to $1.40 Canadian I traded a couple hundred grand and made about $70,000 in the exchange.

This is very different from the young man dreaming about crooked grinds from a few years ago.
Yeah, well, you know, as time goes by you realize that it would be nice to be rich.


In fact, the last time we did an interview you spoke specifically about how you had gotten rid of your luxury car. You said, at that time, that luxury cars were stupid. What made you change your mind? I know these days you have two luxury cars and have even purchased some men's jewelry. What changed?
I think I just woke up to it. I was like, "Shit! 
I like nice shit!" The luxury cars are way better than the other ones.

no this is how it really is:

flip makes paper thin boards that feel soggy after 2 days with stupid graphics and dumb campaigns

element tries to be this really core brand through and fucking through and so many fags have repped the shit out of this backward ass brand deadly to the environment brand it is an eyesore to see that stupid logo, its like trying to avoid listening to nickelback.

nhs was at a time the top of the skateboard game, well lots of things have changed, namely the fact that over 90% of the brands in the past 10 years have cut costs extravagantly to the point where there are less than a handful of distributors competing on price and not quality and putting out the same tired graphics over and over again... it is impossible for any of these big companies to compete on those piss poor margins especially since the US manufacturing industry has been diarheaing the bed over the past two years... so they have to keep pressing bad boards and stupid graphics to stay in business...

so i dont really see how either 1 of these companies is any more "legit" or "core" or even "cool" than the other... you really have to look to those smaller brands to find the cool stuff nowadays, unfortunatly they dont have the money to put towards good wood, is there even a board brand out there that still makes boards out of good wood??? honestly i dont even really see AWS, girl, real as any different any more... i used to put those brand sorta one step higher but im pretty sure thats out the window now. please, correct me if im wrong.

LOL if Bams off element, hes fucked!!!
With the 3rd jackass movie coming out sooner or later, they probably will never get rid of him because of the obvious high visibility of their brand with the same people that watch those movies.

That photo of Geoff and flip kiddy skateboarder #4 is funny.  Their shirts should read "Not for $ale.  Not yet."

Element in my opinion, has bee the most successful company to re-jump start themselves without falling off and coming back into the game. It seems as though they listened to the streets and did everything in their power to clean themselves up. Billabong has some good minds in their PR department.

I think the ad is aimed at billabong and the whole world domination trip they're on.  They recently bought RVCA too. I think don't this is a stab at Apples personally. It just makes sense they make this statement on the day that the new rider is accounced considering the context. The whole not for sale thing leads me to believe flip or nhs may have been approached by Billabong.

yeah my bad. austin smith ford does ride for them though i was confused because i saw the ford and i don't surf or pay attention to surfing i just have heard about him from every surf bro i know.  still santa cruz does sponsor a ton of local dudes on all levels for all of their products which is cool.

Unfortunately, your point about Daryl is irrelevant and I'm sure Billabong employs plenty of "good" people somewhere in the world too so that doesn't really prove anything either...

i totally see what he is saying about the flip criticism of element and i agree with both of you.  however, to say nhs is just like billabong really just proves you two have no idea what you are talking about as did the daryl angel situation with the gipper.  im not into surfing as evidenced by my error above, but there is a huge difference between a corporation like billabong and nhs.  every company employs good people, that is a subjective term and was only one of my reasons supporting my argument.  however, look at the brands on nhs: independent, santa cruz, creature, krux, flip and ricta.  whether or not there is a surfing element attached, these companies make good product and have people who care deeply about skating working for them (ron whaley is an example at krux). billabong made tons of money off of surf related clothing and then bought a lame skate company to make more profits.  nhs began with skateboarding, still makes some of the best product on the market and is more than generous to people in the community in which they are located.  i agree that rowley has no place to be criticizing surf companies (HE RIDES FOR VOLCOM!), almost no one in the skate industry does, but saying nhs is a bad as billabong is just untrue.

also to the gipper, you can just go to mayfair plaza and tell daryl angel to his face that he is an asshole and educate everyone at the park about what an asshole he is cause i think a lot of them don't know and would be grateful to have your knowledge expounded on them.

here are some of my favorite parts of the Appleyard TWS interview:

What inspired the move to Element? Had it been in the works for a while?
I mean, I had a lot of options and I just figured that Element best suits my vibe. It?s just a nice company and kinda earthy and nature-y and stuff. I just felt like, ?Damn that?s where I wana be.? And then I met up with the guys and they were really cool and we just clicked. I?m down?it?s sick.

On a different note, what made you tattoo ?one love? on your forearm instead of buying a Bob Marley poster like everyone else?
[Laughs.] True. Maybe I should have just bought the Bob Marley poster but I was in Finland and a friend of mine tattooed at his apartment. I guess I was just feelin? it. I dunno, ?One love? is just kinda rootsy or something. Or that?s what I was thinkin? at the time. [Laughs].

Fellow Element rider Muska once said, ?Money makes you thick.? Considering the new deal with Element, how thick should we expect you to get?
A little thicker than I am now, but not too thick.

More sushi dinners?
Yeah, some sushi dinners, but some more steak.

Just getting that Filet Mignon or what?
Yeah more Filet Mignon. [Laughs].

fuck yeah, Apples!! i'd be hyped too if i was on a board company that was more earthy and nature-y. so rootsy. hell yeah. i'm predicting some baller-ass dinner tonight!
