Can't say I'm surprised, but damn he owes a lot of $$

I hope he pays it back and maybe learns to spell better. What's up with these handwritten skate notes lately?

$80k in back taxes, goddamn (https://www.thecoli.com/styles/default/xenforo/smilies/holeup.png)

If only we all had the clout to ask strangers for money to help deal with our personal debt...

I guess this can coincide with the GT on Monster thread. I know it can be hypocritical to be on Anti-Hero and then be on Monster but sometimes you have to look out for your own financial well being. To see that Freddie can't afford to pay $2,500 is just sad. I actually thought he needed the full $80K but $2,500? That doesn't seem that crazy of amount to just work off or even sell stuff to get. I am sure he has some old Habitat boards he can easily sell to make this kind of money or even do a Habitat one off that would go toward his problems. But a Go-Fund me? Just kind of weird really.

Taxes are a percentage of income. If Fred had those energy drink sponsors heíd owe even more now!
And its $2500 after they completely drained his bank account, and seems like a recurring thing. Like, I could afford to pay that, but Iíd have to cut into my savings, and Fred had his drained.

I guess you're right. The real issue is just paying your taxes in general. Like someone said above, his go fund me should asap. Andy Roy on the other hand....I think I saw that he raised his Go Fund me higher for his teeth.

i thought he had a financial manager

on his episode of the nine club (june 5, 2017), ryan clements talks about how fred was his second client. p-rod was his first. found an article from as far back as 2010 (https://www.adventuresportsnetwork.com/transworld-business/mo-money-mo-problems-action-sports-athletes-the-woes-of-wealth/ (https://www.adventuresportsnetwork.com/transworld-business/mo-money-mo-problems-action-sports-athletes-the-woes-of-wealth/)):

Clements, who manages Paul Rodriguez and Fred Gall's finances with Brinkly, says putting together a simple financial plan is the first step towards building a solid nest egg for the future. "Weíve found that most of the guys we talk to want to be responsible with their money. They just donít know where to start."

so that's at least seven years of help from clements. seems like a good chunk of time to be able to clear up issues such as this. as he mentioned in his nine club interview though, just because he provides his clients with a financial plan doesn't necessarily mean that they all follow it. wonder how it all went astray though.

sorry uncle freddy

His irresponsibility is what made him awesome. If had been responsible and thought things through he wouldn't have ever been Fred Gall.

Fuck, especially now that I'm old and I'm constantly worrying about the lamest shit (retirement, rent, health insurance, groceries, etc.), I view Fred (and those like him) as inspiring. It would be amazing to quit my job and just live in a never-ending present.

Does Fred have a board out now? Did I somehow miss it on the Habitat website?

The IRS is no joke to deal with.  Last year someone stole my wife's identity.  We didn't know.  Someone opened an Amazon store/site using her name and we got a tax bill for over $16K.  My wife can barely sell stuff on Craig's list, much less run an Amazon store.  For a bill like that they must have sold like $100k worth of stuff. 

The IRS was worthless.  I spent hours on the phone with them just getting bounced from person to person.  I finally just paid an accountant $500 to make it go away.  Such bull shit for something we had nothing to do with.

Freddy absolutely cannot cut out the booze. Everyone I know that has spent more than an hour with him has seen him drunkenly puke. He rarely even drinks water or eats, he just slams Heinekens all day. He wouldn't be able to survive going cold turkey.

The way I read his note he is saying that if he pays the $2500 installment by the Aug date they will knock out a portion of the 80k, a partial settlement so to speak. If he does not meet the deadline he is on the hook for the whole 80K.

If you ever voted for Fred in a poll put a $5 on him. As Mr. Olson would say - They owe!

Post by: veritas on July 30, 2018, 05:10:36 PM
Fred Gall is a national treasure. If anyone has taken the time to read his handwritten note, it says that if he reaches his $2500 goal by August 15th the amount he owes is significantly reduced, and if he doesn't meet it he owes the full $80,000.

For all the love he gets on this board, I'd be shocked if he couldn't make this goal. If 100 people wanted to put up 25  bucks this could easily get knocked out in a day.

Shout out to Ian from Jenkem for not only starting the GoFund me but actually donating 200 bucks. I get people have mixed feelings about Gofund Me's nowadays (As they should) and whats actually worth donating to. Like P-Stones and Johnny Jones being a no brainer and it showed by how many people donated and how much they went over their goal. While Furbys Girlfriend Gofund Me was a total Joke that made like 1% of their goal. I consider this one right in the middle where if you have a few bucks to spare why not. Freddy has got a lot of fans that can probably spare 5 bucks to help him. But granted if another page gets started after this regarding this same issue its no dice for me.

Maybe that plays a factor in how he manages his finances, no? 🤔

Iím kinda torn on all this tbh. On one hand, dealing with debt sucks & society doesnít necessarily spoon feed financial literacy to the general public, so it sucks to see a fellow skater in that predicament (dealing with $80k to IRS no less)

On the other hand Iím like, this is a grown ass man in his thirtyís asking for donations on the internet to pay off his debt. Bro, thereís probably like 10 people whoíve viewed this thread alone whoíre probably dealing similar circumstances and if any of them average Joes posted a gofundme, not a single person would give a fuck. Idc if heís a legend at the end of the day youíre a GROWN ASS MAN. Make sacrifices, form better spending habits, & learn how to manage your money better. We all know his personality/lifestyle and that shit is not sustainable at his age w/ no major ventures outside of some skate sponsors. Time to adjust. Dude could get that full $80k right now and be another few Gís in the hole just a few months later if he doesnít make those personal adjustments and truly learn how to manage his money.

Iím sure heís going through it and I really do feel for him in that regard, but at the same time Iím like tough titty nigga, we all tryna make it out here. I got mouths to feed and if Iím giving money  away, it ainít gonna be to some dude whoís older than me whoís had a whole career & fanbase to work with prior to being in said predicament.

or any industry heads really, surely there's 25 people in the entire skate industry that would be able to drop $100 into Freddy's pocket no?
Fred has probably gone too all those wells way too many times, if you're an adult you all have those friends that you love them from the past but you've had to say no more, and I bet Freddie is 100% that dude.

Have we really come to a point in this world that its not hard to donated a couple of bucks to help a fellow skateboarder out? even if every member of slap donated a $1 it would take out a great chunk of this... I get its not the most ideal situation, I'm sure Freds not a single bit proud of the scenario, but dont kick the dude whilst he down

He's wrong. GoFund is considered a personal gift. As long as it stays under something like 13-14k for the year it is not taxed. Go over that amount and it becomes income. As a donor, you can only deduct the donation if it is to a legit 501(c) charity org.

Honestly I would argue that fred didnt sell out because by the time you could sell out, he was pretty much done professionally skating and was an alcoholic living off of his name.  He wears adidas right now, and judging by this gofundme they dont pay him, im sure he would love to take a pay check from them but they arent offering. 

"respek" to freddy I guess but i will never feel bad not giving to somebodys gofundme for personal mistakes.

And from the devil's advocate standpoint, a bunch of you are gonna sit there and torch Arto for the AMEX thing because you believe it will make young skaters think credit cards are cool in order to get them into "debt slavery".  Yet, you think it's OK for a 20 year pro skateboarder to NOT pay his taxes and ask the public for money???  What the fuck does THAT teach any of these impressionable young up and coming kids?  That it's OK to NOT be financially responsible for your life and then just ask others for money when you need it??  It's the same shit.  You just hate AMEX because it's a corporation, and love Freddy because he's every skater's favorite skater.

Granted, nobody gives two shits about me, but man I sure could have used gofundme money to get out of the financial jams I landed myself in.

Instead, I got a job, kept it, and paid them down slowly over time. It sucked, but I learned my lesson, to be sure.

This is one of the craziest things about skateboarding. We celebrate and encourage the shit out of people who are completely blowing it at (creating a superficial and stale suburban) life, but after we get our entertainment out of them we say, "Well you should have been more responsible."

What an amazing catch-22. If the skaters were more "responsible" (read: neo-liberal business minded weasels) we'd collectively hate them (see Nyjah, Sheckler, P-Rod, Jagger Eaton, Dyrdek, etc.), but when they are "irresponsible" we love them until they need any help.

Would you really rather see Fred Gall go to prison for being an idiot when collectively it would be fairly easy to keep him out. We've all made moronic decisions in life and many of us continue to.

What are you talking about? I see constant praise for skateboarders that set themselves up for life outside of skateboarding. It's been eight years since Heath Kirchart retired, and people still marvel at the fact that he invested and set himself up to retire on his terms. And I challenge you to find a Mark Suciu interview where he isn't asked about higher education. I think there's a pretty big gap between being a functioning adult and being among the stratosphere of the pros you listed.

I donated some money because I have a feeling most of this debt is from when he was starting to make money late 90s early 00s. most skateboard companies hire you as an independent contractor so they don't withhold what you owe the IRS. it makes it seem like ur earning a shit load of cash but actually its regular money. you go a few years without paying your taxes and nothing really happens, then all of a sudden it becomes a problem. if he was making enough to owe 80k from the last 10 years then he's been doing extremely well for himself. but somehow I doubt that. the people in here trying to tar and feather Freddy for being Freddy are lame. yeah he made some bad decisions sometimes. thats what he does. doesn't make him a bad person or undeserving of some gofundme cash. he's one of my favorite skaters but I can't remember the last time ive owned one of his boards. habitat needs to get on that and make some nice ones with his name on it.

It's a joke started by Jenkem just to see how quickly we can turn on one of our own. His(&all pro skaters) lifestyle was glorified in the 90s/early 00s when they're dropping content and jackass etc is front and center. Now that his switch back 5s aren't as long everybody is like "fuck em - I had to get a job so he should too". We all had to get jobs because we weren't good enough at skating and sure if we would have got a shoe check we would all stash away the 30-40% for taxes. Maybe he fucked up, got assets seized and now has garnished paychecks all while being the sole provider for his mom and uncle. life sucks and sometimes people get in shitty situations. If he ODs or his liver bursts tonight everybody would be on here celebrating his life and what a free spirit and the essence of skating etc. Just like you have plenty of skaters that have gone too soon through the years because of bad decisions/thier own fault. Fred is a legend because of how he did. If he did it some other way he would another geek nobody talks about.

His(&all pro skaters) lifestyle was glorified in the 90s/early 00s when they're dropping content and jackass etc is front and center. Now that his switch back 5s aren't as long everybody is like "fuck em - I had to get a job so he should too". We all had to get jobs because we weren't good enough at skating and sure if we would have got a shoe check we would all stash away the 30-40% for taxes. Maybe he fucked up, got assets seized and now has garnished paychecks all while being the sole provider for his mom and uncle. life sucks and sometimes people get in shitty situations. If he ODs or his liver bursts tonight everybody would be on here celebrating his life and what a free spirit and the essence of skating etc. Just like you have plenty of skaters that have gone too soon through the years because of bad decisions/thier own fault. Fred is a legend because of how he did. If he did it some other way he would another geek nobody talks about.

If he tapes, and posts him beating up Daryl I'll donate a good chunk of my lunch money

In fact, fuck it. I'll pay the entire remainder of whatever is owed if Frederick does the Fosters car park boogie with Daryl.

I donated 100 dollars because I love fred. Next month he will have to come up with another chunk of money and probably wont get it and end up in jail. The fact he was teammates with Drydek for years makes me think Fred just doesn't give a fuck. Im sure Drydek gave him tons of advice and helped him. Fred we love you but shit caught up

what a fuckin child. I can't believe hie is celebrated by skater children and adults alike for his irresponsible and childish lifestyle.
donating to this go fund  me is just another way that he'll land on his feet and not learn any lesson from his mistake.

This is one of the craziest things about skateboarding. We celebrate and encourage the shit out of people who are completely blowing it at (creating a superficial and stale suburban) life, but after we get our entertainment out of them we say, "Well you should have been more responsible."

What an amazing catch-22. If the skaters were more "responsible" (read: neo-liberal business minded weasels) we'd collectively hate them (see Nyjah, Sheckler, P-Rod, Jagger Eaton, Dyrdek, etc.), but when they are "irresponsible" we love them until they need any help. Something about this seems really fucked up.


What are you talking about? I see constant praise for skateboarders that set themselves up for life outside of skateboarding. It's been eight years since Heath Kirchart retired, and people still marvel at the fact that he invested and set himself up to retire on his terms. And I challenge you to find a Mark Suciu interview where he isn't asked about higher education. I think there's a pretty big gap between being a functioning adult and being among the stratosphere of the pros you listed.

First, in relation to Mark Suciu's education and his image in skateboarding, the first interview that popped up on Google states, "Mark Suciu is not your typical pro. Despite having a board on Habitat and a signature shoe on adidas, Mark is continuing his education. In the summer of 2015, he moved to New York to focus on completing his undergrad degree; heís currently in his final year" (http://theberrics.com/mark-suciu-inspired-by/). The interview starts off framing Mark as unique because he is going to college. I'm going to guess that Suciu is is basically in the same spot Rattray was in 10 years ago. He is celebrated for being an outlier in a subculture that promotes not thinking about the future. It reminds me of the episode of the Boondocks where Thugnificant congratulates Huey for reading. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvjCGgG26CI

Second, you'll always be able to find a few dudes who developed good exit plans (Heath) or just got insanely lucky post-fucking around (or had mommy and daddy's money to support them post-career so they look "responsible"), but I think it is hard to argue that being responsible is a solid selling point for most pros/ams. Think of the brands that most of us grew up wishing we could be on Baker, Anti-Hero, enjoi, etc. a significant part of what made those brands and the skaters awesome was the fact that they didn't give a fuck.  There are dudes from those companies that sobered up and reduced the craziness, but the partying, hijinks, and irresponsibility is what made them so marketable in the first place.

I agree Dyrdek, Eaton, Sheckler, Lutzka, etc. are extremes, but I don't think being Mr. Responsible is going to help the decks fly off the shelves. Finally, if you want we could actually solve this shit scientifically (rather than relying on anecdotal evidence). One way might be to look at which skaters are most celebrated and hated on Slap in the past month (#of positive comments vs # negative comments) and then measure how "future oriented" or "present oriented" each skater was based on their recent interviews (and maybe video parts). We would need to think up a way to measure "thinking about the future" and "living in a never ending present," but I would bet that the skaters who overtly think about the future get shit on far more often than those who fuck around in the present.

Wasnt aware of that arrangement or if thatís the norm. However, youd think maybe the photog would cut Freddy some slack given the situation and allow him to have a run of some print to get him out of the jam?
I always found it odd that the photog gets all the credit for the photo, and the skate gets ďnothingĒ Ė hell get exposure and maybe an incentive from his sponsors or something, but without the skater, theres no photo, so Id figure / assume it be shared so to speak.

Not really.  If you commission an artist to paint a portrait of you, you are by NO MEANS a "shared owner" for that piece of work.  You'd still have to buy it from the artist.  Same deal.

Fred said he paid his taxes with the money donated - he said he sent a check last week, and thanks everyone. I told him to publicly post something on Insta thanking everyone who helped out. He hasn't, but hope he does at some point.

in terms of CPH that was w/ the Boardr and their help - unrelated to the tax issue.
