This company was affiliated with aws and hbitat , when they shut down someof the riders switched over to aws. Anyone know why they shut down. I had a rob dydrek pro model with shiny graphics that flaked off., I personally thought the decks were dope and was bummed when they closed.

Always hoped Carolino would have gone pro for them. That guy has the worst board sponsor luck.

I was so stupid that AWS rejected them as team riders after seek was gone

I'm bummed Ted DeGros faded out of the spotlight. I was always super hyped on everything he put out.

Sorry, but who the fuck was ever psyched on SEEK?
It had no identity whatsoever. Just seemed like a safe, boring place to put riders who ripped but they didn't feel like they could represent properly.

that's kind of what i don't get. alien didn't need a 'street' alternative. alien was a collage of different styles before then, look at photosynthesis and you've got dill, ave, kalis, dyrdek and pappalardo. different music, different spots, different kinds of skaters -  it worked perfectly. then they get kalis and dyrdek over to seek. for what? was the weakest move and hurt the alien aesthetic for a while. seek was tacky and nondescript. dgk is a proper home for kalis, seek's aesthetic just refused to embrace the market it seemed to be targeting.

This has been discussed so many times it's ridiculous. The art directors and graphic designers at DNA couldn't keep up with all three of the companies at once, so they eventually got overworked and had to scrap Seek.

That is a really stupid reason to shut down a brand, I always throught it was cause of low board sales

Yeah, that was probably part of it too, but the art director thing was the reason DNA gave Kalis according to his Quartersnacks interview.
