There's a false ceiling on tricks. Every pro and am can do stuff twice as hard/good as what they put out. To keep steady progression and not have the level rise too high and too fast, to keep the older generation of pro's valid. That's why dum am's like nick merlino got silenced and sent to foundation when he was killing it when he was baker flow.


it wouldn't surprise me if this is true. I remember an interview with Merlino where he says that he heard that Batface was threatened by his skating.


Which interview? I want to know more


I don't remember which one it was. I think it was from right before WTF came out. I'll look through some magazines and see if it was in any of them.

Edit: found it.

Element pretends to be a "green enviro sensitive do gooder metro male anti war love company but in reality they cut down trees and make pretty much every thing else from oil and do most of it in china so they can pay kids fifty cents a day to make big profits for pseudo green pseudo hardcore pseudo surf conglomerate billabong who is still going broke anyway. If they really gave a shit they would just shut their fucking doors and go home. Nothing wrong with capitalism but hypocrisy is disgraceful.  There is nothing green about skating. Let's just be honest about it and go have fun.

nike is a core skatebrand. they will still stay in the skateboardbusiness and keep making shoes when the scene gets as small as in the early 90ies. they're not doing it for the sake of money, it's all about their love for skateboarding.

Steve Rocco is set to get back into the industry by launching an exclusive Chinese skate team consortium ? la Blind/101/World Industries of the 90's. Skating is blowing up over there and his early business connections have secured him exclusivity rights to riders, spots and board technology. Once in place the company will weed out all other US or Euro skate companies getting manufactured over there. If they want to keep producing decks in the Far East they will have to join Steve's exclusive consortium. Girl and Chocolate are over there right now negotiating. Rick is trying to patch up old beef and everyone's using filming for the new video as an excuse. Eric Koston might not be included due to his ties to Steve Berra who tried a similar move when he took over operations at DC and tried to put a lock on Europe/Barcelona with the DC Embassy.
In 5 years time, the skate industry will be relocating to China leaving Deluxe and Alien Workshop to rep for the USA. Europe will carry on playing 2nd-3rd place.

Sorry to go off topic, but after reading that Merlino interview and watching that homie video part, I'm starting to like the dude.  His skating is almost on a Sheckler level (minus tranny), and aside from annoying teammates (no diff to me) he doesn't seem like the asshole he's made out to be.  I like Braydon, but he does suck compared to Nick.

it's no real secret but a lot of guys don't ride the product from the brands they're getting paychecks from. spraypainting and tearing logos off shoes and clothing is very common. and most people ride indys.

in interviews some pros who do drink and smoke say they don't  because they don't want it to influence kids, but there are a few who actually do abstain.

louie barletta's exact age is a best kept secret

the current location of pappalardo's bag of tricks is also a secret now, even to anthony himself.
