The dude is kind of an asshole, who doesn't appreciate what he has.

He does rip though.

He has that attitude of "I don't give a fuck" which I really respect. But sometimes it goes too far to the point where it seems to be more like "I don't give a fuck about loyalty or my friends or people who have helped me out" That makes you a douchebag.

He needs to give a little fucks sometimes... just a little bit

Add the day in the life thing, Nike stuff, Krooked guest stuff, Fat Bill clips, FF and Pretty Sweet together and he has had more coverage than the majority of pros have in that amount if time.

yea I love alex, great style and powerful pop.

but lets be honest guys the company is still just an idea, aside from the jenkem interview there are so many skaters who have no idea what 3D is. We just know about it cuz we are on slap. So he is just bouncing around before the companies get off the ground. That being said I am really pissed about this.

Long time lurker, first time poster.

Im a big fan of Olson's; I ? think he's got a great style and usually appreciate his attitude. I even backed the 3d move. But one thing gets me: lack of loyalty. The best and probably most respected name in skating snatched this guy up when I lot of people were too skeptical to really back him. Everyone knew he was talented in skating, but people wouldn't fully support him cause they didn't think he would come through. And then Lakai and Girl put this guy on an helped him build a helluva career. I can understand leaving lakai, even though Im sure it bumbed out Kelly Bird, Carroll etc, because of the financial payoff: it's hard to hold someone back from earning a big paycheck in such a financially sketchy career that could put them on solid footing for life. But board companies are kinda much more personal and revered. Im sure Rick and Mike were not too happy about it - if youll notice, Girl hasn't said shit and no one wished him anything on instagram.

3d was cool and made sense, however. In addition to hating big picture video productions (which Im sure he thought was aesthetically lame), he doesn't seem to like the hectic travel in a van with some people he probably doesnt care for and seems to have very little connection to the younger guard at girl/chocolate - he's friends with the older dudes. Totally makes sense. Join a small but rad company that's super marketable, will probably be less travel heavy and ride with a close friend in BA. But fucking Anderson over when he's just building a company and relying on you is kinda fucked. As they're rolling it out, you back out, if that's the case. That would just be flaking out on the people who built your career and then the people you were going to expand it with.

But if he doesn't join Fuckin Awesome (cringeworthy name) or remain on 3d (internet prank), I think he might of shipped back over to Girl. He has light hearted comment on his instagram (where else these days) about Carroll and him having it out. Maybe he asked back on he team. If not that, then I kinda lost some respect until I hear his take.

Aren't we all well introduced to Staba's sense of humor by now? Especially when it comes to posting certain things up on the internet solely to instigate mass hysteria on internet messageboards?

I'll be very surprised if he's legitimately off.

In addition to hating big picture video productions (which Im sure he thought was aesthetically lame), he doesn't seem to like the hectic travel in a van with some people he probably doesnt care for and seems to have very little connection to the younger guard at girl/chocolate - he's friends with the older dudes. Totally makes sense. Join a small but rad company that's super marketable, will probably be less travel heavy and ride with a close friend in BA. But fucking Anderson over when he's just building a company and relying on you is kinda fucked. As they're rolling it out, you back out, if that's the case. That would just be flaking out on the people who built your career and then the people you were going to expand it with.

But if he doesn't join Fuckin Awesome (cringeworthy name) or remain on 3d (internet prank), I think he might of shipped back over to Girl. He has light hearted comment on his instagram (where else these days) about Carroll and him having it out. Maybe he asked back on he team. If not that, then I kinda lost some respect until I hear his take.

ummmm....remember the Instagram "press release" that announced BA's joining of Skate Mental, then subsequent departure only a few hours later?

Aren't we all well introduced to Staba's sense of humor by now? Especially when it comes to posting certain things up on the internet solely to instigate mass hysteria on internet messageboards?

I'll be very surprised if he's legitimately off.  

Agreed completely. It's just Staba being Staba messing with people to get the internet all abuzz and see how far people will run with it.

Not sure but dude would definitely fit with what BA is doing.


I just think that BA has a great opportunity to showcase unique dudes instead of just creating another home for dudes who have had a chance. That Alex kid rips but its probably good for both parties that he went off like that. Sort of like that awful girl youre just better off without.

Long time lurker, first time poster.

Im a big fan of Olson's; I ? think he's got a great style and usually appreciate his attitude. I even backed the 3d move. But one thing gets me: lack of loyalty. The best and probably most respected name in skating snatched this guy up when I lot of people were too skeptical to really back him. Everyone knew he was talented in skating, but people wouldn't fully support him cause they didn't think he would come through. And then Lakai and Girl put this guy on an helped him build a helluva career. I can understand leaving lakai, even though Im sure it bumbed out Kelly Bird, Carroll etc, because of the financial payoff: it's hard to hold someone back from earning a big paycheck in such a financially sketchy career that could put them on solid footing for life. But board companies are kinda much more personal and revered. Im sure Rick and Mike were not too happy about it - if youll notice, Girl hasn't said shit and no one wished him anything on instagram.

3d was cool and made sense, however. In addition to hating big picture video productions (which Im sure he thought was aesthetically lame), he doesn't seem to like the hectic travel in a van with some people he probably doesnt care for and seems to have very little connection to the younger guard at girl/chocolate - he's friends with the older dudes.

I love Olson's skating, and I've tried so hard to back him even through his strange modeling phase and such, but he comes off as one of the most ungrateful dudes in the industry. Like he's too cool to be a professional skateboarder yet he's getting paid to be a professional skateboarder.

Instagram (I know, I know!). But my guess, Olson's definitely off. Staba keeps saying Olson does not ride for 3d in random posts, and Im sure he's pissed. Koston makes a potentially telling comment, basically saying he told Staba AO would flake. From what we've seen from Koston in the past (calling Olson out), Im guessing Koston thinks Olson's pretty ungrateful to his sponsors, especially in light of the Girl departure. Hopefully Staba will start talking shit soon.

Otherwise, it's just another elaborate Staba joke/hoax.

But Im guessing not. It looks like Olson skipped town as they were finishing up their inaugural catalogue. That's gonna piss anyone off.

You mean "skateboarding's Obama"? That is the prime example of how far a gimmick can get you in skateboarding. Switch flipping the welfare benches on flat is insane, don't get me wrong, but if he wasn't talking about shoot outs and crack sales in his interviews & flashing assault rifles in his video parts, he would have gone nowhere fast. He is a nice guy though, most niggas I know from the DMV would much rather kill you and run up your credit cards at Mc Donalds than have a cordial exchange.

Think about it: skateboarding is on some Soap Opera/Reality show level of bullshit right now.

Big skateboarding brands disappear

Some small european brands start to eat market shares

Big names leave historical brands

Those big names want to make their own brands

Some big names don't know if they want to leave, and where they want to go

We just need some devilish twins and some love affair and we're good to go.

The one positive would be that nike owns alex olson and they can force him to do things that hes suppose to do anyways. That or get kicked off. I mean he has the ollie and the mind to really make a genre defining part, why he never put it out is beyond me. Well i suppose saving all his best tricks and putting that part out for a new company would be better than giving it to someone else. Hed be able to leverage it the best. Welp, hopefully he can make a decision and finally put it out. Definitely not backing any new company alex makes but id love to see a legit part out of him.

If it does turn out to be a Staba prank, Olson's rep is taking a serious beating in the process. So if they turn around all of a sudden and say JUST JOKING! it's hard for everyone to take back all the less than flattering things being said.

Also in the case of all this bullshit is real, I think AO just commited "carreer" suicide. I remember reading AO got on Nike SB through to BA so you know...

I think we have some kind of telenovelas material here.

Think about it: skateboarding is on some Soap Opera/Reality show level of bullshit right now.

Big skateboarding brands disappear

Some small european brands start to eat market shares

Big names leave historical brands

Those big names want to make their own brands

Some big names don't know if they want to leave, and where they want to go

We just need some devilish twins and some love affair and we're good to go.

I'd say this is true, and if so, it's really lame of Alex. Maybe he got a better offer from Alien or Krooked or whatever, but I'd say BA put a lot on the line building a team with just these three dudes, so his friend (one third of the team) backing out as boards are going in to production probably puts the guy and the entire company in a bind. I hope all goes well for 3D. I'm a huge Brian Anderson fan, and I feel like he really deserves this project. I love Olson's skating too, but he seems to be derailing a bit lately.

Has anyone considered he may have left with BA's blessing? They are homies, Alex may have got a huge offer told BA, and BA being an adult in the real life world that knows you have to make money to eat and etc. May have said, I would do it if I were you Alex, go for it. Bummer, but we'll still get to go on Nike trips....

If I owned a skate brand, I'd lock pros in for 12 months after a videos release.

Olson jumped ship after Fully Flared for Vans and now 3D (or whatever) after Pretty Sweet.

Think of all of the money they shelled out for his salary, royalties, product, travel, promotion and other expenses.

They were looking for a return on their support of his career in the way of increased sales after the video releases.

Girl/Lakai made a significant investment in this child twice and lost twice.

He better stay with his next sponsors for a long time. As much I like his skating, if I were a company owner, I wouldn't fuck with him. No way.

Not if he pulls a Kalis and runs into Dyrdek at the trade show. AO on Alien, you heard it here first. $250 check cut on the cot dayum spot too.

i still think its a joke, but alien would make the most sense. i could see dylan wanting to bounce, rob saying "what do i have to do to keep you on alien?" and dylan saying "you gotta put alex on if you want me to stay." those two have been real buddy buddy in nyc lately, and im sure dyrdek has a bit more cash to hand out than BA does. maybe alex and dylan will be the new ave and dill on alien, if indeed all of this nonsense is real.

also, good kalis reference.

Hah thanks for noticing, & is Dylan officially off of Alien?

Instagram (I know, I know!). But my guess, Olson's definitely off. Staba keeps saying Olson does not ride for 3d in random posts, and Im sure he's pissed. Koston makes a potentially telling comment, basically saying he told Staba AO would flake. From what we've seen from Koston in the past (calling Olson out), Im guessing Koston thinks Olson's pretty ungrateful to his sponsors, especially in light of the Girl departure. Hopefully Staba will start talking shit soon.

Otherwise, it's just another elaborate Staba joke/hoax.

But Im guessing not. It looks like Olson skipped town as they were finishing up their inaugural catalogue. That's gonna piss anyone off.

Where is the koston quote to staba? I can't find it anywhere.

Erica Yary says to put Bert Wootton on. GirlsSkateNetwork says to out Elissa on. I'm in total agreement with that. A lot of people saying to put Pops on. Also would be tight.

It's about raising his profile that is of benefit to girl and being on vans can do this.
Girl can use the money they were paying Olson to pay someone else to be on lakai.
Olson wouldn't have gotten on vans if wasn't for the lakai video.

Him continually jumping ship is not a good thing but I don't think girl were disappointed at the time when he left lakai to ride for vans, I think they would of encouraged it. It's the total package.

Instagram (I know, I know!). But my guess, Olson's definitely off. Staba keeps saying Olson does not ride for 3d in random posts, and Im sure he's pissed. Koston makes a potentially telling comment, basically saying he told Staba AO would flake. From what we've seen from Koston in the past (calling Olson out), Im guessing Koston thinks Olson's pretty ungrateful to his sponsors, especially in light of the Girl departure. Hopefully Staba will start talking shit soon.

Otherwise, it's just another elaborate Staba joke/hoax.

But Im guessing not. It looks like Olson skipped town as they were finishing up their inaugural catalogue. That's gonna piss anyone off.

Where is the koston quote to staba? I can't find it anywhere.

A lot of good comments in that picture. Mic-E Reyes says to put Jack Curtin on. Is his contract up with DGK?? That would be an interesting move.

Erica Yary says to put Bert Wootton on. GirlsSkateNetwork says to out Elissa on. I'm in total agreement with that. A lot of people saying to put Pops on. Also would be tight.


Erica Yary is fucking bert wootton, of course she wants him on a full board company so he stops living off her with flow ass.
Confirmed Erica Yary on Bert Wootton.

Bert Wootton laughs in Slap's face everytime he beat's Erica's guts up.

I hope this is true for Bert's sake, let a man catch a break.

Thank you! Every time I watch that show I can't help by notice how pissed she is when the focus isn't on her, she gets a frustrated look on her face and then only precedes to talk about "that one time me and you...." Name drops has far too many in jokes with guests she knows basically does what 15 year old girls do to make them seem better than you, she is vapid and painfully boring.

I don't have a problem with Olson in the least, I think he's a young dude just doing whatever the hell he wants. But from an outside perspective he doesn't seem to take what he has with any value when a lot of hard working skateboarders - who are equal to if not better than Alex - would kill to be in that same position and have the same opportunities.

I'm not hating on the guy, but he really needs to lay off 'modeling' in the Strobeck pics. Just go off the radar for a bit. If he's proved anything is that despite how he acts, what he says and does, he loves the attention and is a complete attention whore.

Because their situations aren't even comparable. Just look up ipath on slap, they basically stopped paying the team and systematically kicked everyone off. And it sucks that raybourne left 1031 and slave but he came up on his own with none of the kind of support that alex got from crailtap.

It's obvious Alex wants more creative outlet than Girl,  which is pretty straight laced.  Maybe he thought he would get that at 3D and they just turned out more of the same.  If he is on Krooked that would be hella tight.

After reading the Austyn Skateboarder he made it pretty clear he and Dylan wanted to end up on the same team (HUF) so maybe with Olson gone Dylan can jump ship at Workshop and get on 3D.  Dylan, Austyn, and Brian would be unreal.

Just because Koston is one of the greatest skaters of all time doesn't make him a rad person.  Wether or not it's some facade he puts on for the Berrics/Instagram crowd, the dude seems like a total asshole.  Has anyone else been super stoked on a pro and then met them and realized they were a total dick and it kind of changed your perception?  I have had it go both ways, there are dudes I have heard are huge kooks and then met and realized they're super mellow and decent humans.   Sorry for the rant

Does anyone recall any stories of people almost riding for companies and then backing out?  The reason I ask is this were '03, this all would have all been avoided.  3D would have likely ran an add announcing the riders, but Olson would have likely backed out before that and they'd have time to pull the add and recover.  We'd have never known.  I do think what went down was a bummer, but I also wonder how much the social media climate of skateboarding contributed to this.

After reading the Austyn Skateboarder he made it pretty clear he and Dylan wanted to end up on the same team (HUF) so maybe with Olson gone Dylan can jump ship at Workshop and get on 3D.  Dylan, Austyn, and Brian would be unreal.

Just because Koston is one of the greatest skaters of all time doesn't make him a rad person.  Wether or not it's some facade he puts on for the Berrics/Instagram crowd, the dude seems like a total asshole.  Has anyone else been super stoked on a pro and then met them and realized they were a total dick and it kind of changed your perception?  I have had it go both ways, there are dudes I have heard are huge kooks and then met and realized they're super mellow and decent humans.   Sorry for the rant

Ronnie Creager used to be a dick. He used to flick cigarettes at kids skating Fullerton High.

everyone seems pretty quick to hate on olson, does anyone even no why he left??........all speculation??
could've been any number of issues but most likely $$, skate mental stopped paying dennis durant then offered him a pro board for royalties only & no salary.....a similar thing could've been dropped on olson's lap

Does anyone recall any stories of people almost riding for companies and then backing out?  The reason I ask is this were '03, this all would have all been avoided.  3D would have likely ran an add announcing the riders, but Olson would have likely backed out before that and they'd have time to pull the add and recover.  We'd have never known.  I do think what went down was a bummer, but I also wonder how much the social media climate of skateboarding contributed to this.

That's a good point. Definitely a social media situation.  The guys able to change his mind. I have been offered 2 jobs at he same time and had a similar situation .

http://instagram.com/p/b84m5fS1Lc/ (http://instagram.com/p/b84m5fS1Lc/)

is that what he's trying to do.

No way, he is the king of not wearing sponsors shit. He is probably just hyped on them and wants a shirt.

I met Pj Ladd in LA when i was a kid in like 2005 and totally snubbed me when i said whats up to him and it changed my perception of him for the rest of my life, but i have heard of him doing that from other skaters so through time that bad rap gets around and ppl just expect him to be a dick and hated him. Same thing with Alex Olson im sure hes had a few bad encounters with fans and it depicts him as an asshole skater. On the other hand i met Ryan Sheckler in the second x games in LA around the same time and in the mist of everyone hating him for no reason and was the coolest dude, signed an autograph took a pic with me and my brother and had a conversation with us, and to this day anybody that has ever said something bad about him i would tell them hes actually a cool guy in person.

Graphic wise it kinda is an extension of Skate Mental, but some of the boards really was funny as hell. Had hoped for something a little different, but some of those graphics made me laugh for sure. But yeah, had imagined something a little more artsy from BA and Gillette.

"chilling and skating ditches and stuff" is the new "brown cords/half cabs and wallies".  (not that that is a bad thing).  but it'll be interesting to see the 2 kinds of videos that will be in skateboarding.  One the one hand you have videos of dudes (mostly kids) trying to do shit that's never been done.  and the other videos will be dudes just skating.  and what's weird about that is that if you're "just skating", i'm not so sure i still consider you "professional".  i mean, shit, i skate ditches with my friends for fun, but i certainly don't expect people to give me a check for it or put my name on a board.  things are getting really weird in skateboarding.

Apparently Brian Anderson fancies himself as a bit of a futurist. Thinks he predicted facebook and shit. Anyway the reason that he called his company 3D skateboards is because he really believes that in a few years, technology will be at a point where skateboards will be able to be printed at home on a 3D printer.

Alex Olson saw this as a flaky business model because apparently BA was all like "Alex, we gon' be swimmin' in that green when every house in America owns a 3D printa yo. Its gon be like winter, snow cones all roundd. SNOW CONES FULL A MONEY!"

Apparently AO was like "Brian, when did you start talking like that and people might not have 3D printers for a while so what will do in the meantime?"

BA was like "Alex shut the fuck up while a light up this stogie. FUCK YOU. We got nike money it doesn't matter what we do. Now dance for me real slow again but this time with your shirt off..."

Anyway, whilst it was fun at the start, the dancing became a bit much for AO, so I heard he is going to DLX

Fuck just saw the boards, what a let down.
I like Staba's Humour and skatemental but 3d needed to be its own thing.

If you just put random stuff on a board its not cohesive enough to create a proper brand.
The randomness  humour and that vector illustrator style is the skatemental brand.
To me thats where Girls Graphics went to shit. Since the sort of Larson mid century design style got dropped Girl graphics have been largely shit.
#prettysweet. The Chocolate brand has always been so strong because of Hecox, the color palette and the typography.

I was expecting BA's style to be used in the way they do Gonz & crooked.
Plus you gotta get it right first time. We've all seen it now same as politic skateboards.

I think the "Gillete Razor" board might be in homage to his crew/homies "RAZOR SHARP CREW". Danny Garcia, Evan Shutthefrontdoor, James Craig, Aaron the Blind Filmer are the more known dudes. It's really a bunch of OC kids from Yorba Linda, Brea, ANahiem Hills, Tustin.....but I could be wrong.

Totally Austyn , is that a poke at fucking awesome? Brad taste if it is. I saw the Anderson ad on tumblr before i saw these boards and was hyped now not so much.Now that Ive seen this  I think Alex made the rite choice which kinda sucks because it would be such a great team , unfortunately graphics do matter as far as individual branding is concerned and i personal thought BA was more of a creative person to let this be the first showing of 3D  disappointing.

That shit is depressing. Inside jokes on skating aside, that can't be a foundation. This shit is bunk, I respect and admire Brian, but for real? It's skate mental version 2.0 Too many fucking companies trying to pick up demographics. I say let the skaters speak and not be told what to... SKATEBOARDING IS OVER SATURATED THESE DAYS. Jesus Christ, how many fucking new off shoots do you need. Simple answer none. He's not doing what Ed Templeton did.

Plus you faggots who are 3-5 years deep in skateboarding are cunts. I'll flex that opinion because you idiots don't even know what a slick board is.(outside of wiki and they weren't great) Reasoning is you never rode one, fuck boy fashionistas.

I'll buy one if the shop by me has them when my board breaks. They are still better than a deathwish, shitty shop graphic or fucking skull and crossbone ATM board that are popular by me. A sixteenth of you older dudes may too just so you can say, "I've been supporting this company the whole time. Even when their graphics sucked.

You all act like he has some other high end activity that is consuming all his free time. This is why pro skaters rarely succeed outside of being a pro skater. They lack the will power and drive to be productive. Not all, but most, and this feels just like that. You know how long i've heard fat bill tell me he is done with the skate industry and is gonna make a solo full length film that has nothing to do with skating?10+ years. Not to pick on bill but it's an anthem that is way to prevelant in the skate industry.

I doubt Alex left because of graphics.  If he did, that would be really funny and he better have something up his sleeve then, right?

The earlier posts about Koston...I have a ton of respect for the guy and everything he's accomplished in this crazy industry over the past 2 decades, but I feel like the inside jokes get to be a bit much. I also wish he'd rise above the shit with Olson. Just let it go and move on.

I think Staba is the same way with the overdone inside jokes. He's not a funny guy in the least. I'm not hating on Brad Staba, because I know he has a cult following, but I think he's incredibly self absorbed, smug and unfunny. The 'cool guy' routine of mocking skateboarding. The Skate Mental stuff is so tired. It's just boring and tired. And unfortunately this initial run of 3D is a shitty extension of that. Not unique or it's own in the least. Total bummer.

I don't mind the decks, nothing special but nothing that bad either. One offs are better than the pro boards.

It would be sick to see Olson on anti hero or krooked.

But if you had the chance to be on BAs or Gonzs or Strangers company, I would probably choose the gonz.

Skateboard companies almost never produce good graphics during their first runs. They're kind of like TV shows in this respect. Watch the first season of just about any of your favorite show and tell me it isn't worse. The voices are off, the characters all seem different because they haven't found their voice yet. But eventually the show does do just that, and becomes the show you know and love, usually staying that way until the end or jumping the shark and living on for another 15 years(The Simpsons  :( ).

I'll be supporting BA and 3D. I get stoked on good graphics, for sure, but rarely does a graphic keep me from buying a board. I've ridden some pretty revolting DLX boards. It's not like I'm wearing the thing. Plus, as some have mentioned, I think they'll get better with time. It's rare that a company comes out killing it on all fronts. BA and Austyn rip and I'll be happy to pick up one of their boards.

I'm feeling the sizes on these. I can pretty much buy any width board and be under 32". Perfect for my short-ass legs.

Deathwish had a shit start and even though they do some kooky shit, they really have a nice art department now.

I totally disagree with that, they established what kind of aesthetic they were going to go for very quickly and it hasnt really changed at all since the first run. They added some proper shithouse cartoonish stuff but its all in line with their vibe.

Im really rooting for 3D but this is a really sloppy first run and i hope they figure out a way to establish their vibe outside of this first line of boards. I know there wasnt a lot of time but youd think he had a lot more stuff floating around in his head if he felt confident enough to do a board company. Skate mental is already an enjoi rip off. I hope 3D isnt aspiring to be a ripoff of a ripoff.

I'm still glad BA is doing his thing but I'm not really a fan of those graphics.

Its a little childish for me, and i cant see any difference from skate mental...

The crowd one was clever though... because that one stands out.

It would be cool if the first run would have been with old movie monsters printed in 3d, like godzilla or swamp-thing. Or portraits of the riders printed in 3D... and that the boards would come with 3d glasses and a small catalog printed in the 3D style. I wish they would have gotten more out of the name 3D.

But first impressions says it all... wasted opportunity to make use of a cool name.

Skateboard companies almost never produce good graphics during their first runs. They're kind of like TV shows in this respect. Watch the first season of just about any of your favorite show and tell me it isn't worse. The voices are off, the characters all seem different because they haven't found their voice yet. But eventually the show does do just that, and becomes the show you know and love, usually staying that way until the end or jumping the shark and living on for another 15 years(The Simpsons  :( ).

Futurama's continuity has never fucked up. Best cartoon alive (for now -_-).

I'd say king of the hill stayed true till the very end (being ousted by the puke worthy cleveland show)
the only good LOST season was the first one

People said the same thing about nike when it first came out. 8 years ago or so besides the dunk they made high priced ugly shoes and colorways that didn't attract the average skater. Only sneaker heads were lines up to get the latest dunk but it was rare to see anybody skating nikes. Now a days all you see is kids skating 70+ dollar janoskis.

When Nike first came out they were so poorly received, they left skateboarding for some years, until things seemed viable for a re-brand

I do think most people are being too quick to judge. The signature boards are admittedly dissappointing, but some of the one offs are significantly better.

 BA did the art for multiple girl boards, and didn't that one "project BA" color way have a swoosh hand drawn by him? Companies always seem super willing to let him work his art into his products, I can't imagine that won't be the case for future 3d stuff, a company that he seems to have a, for him, unprecedented amount of influence in.

They looked fucking atrocious, but they were really comfortable, lasted forever because of that rubber netting, and the zoom air insole that covered the entire bottom of the insole absorbed enough shock to be worthy of being put into many other skate shoes I rocked after that. It was funny when they tried saying the Angus was the second coming of the Dunk though. A lot of those ugly ass Nike shoes in the beginning were actually very good for skating, even if they didn't look the part.

That's all I remember prior to them coming back with reese forbes n all dat shit.
I seem to remember the "What if" ads were about '96 or so and they had no team riders what so ever. That was their greatest failure, the other thing was they made no effort into getting shoes into skate shops and expected skateboarders to buy them from Footlocker ect. That whole campaign and the shoes lasted less than a year. It wasn't until the SB brand came about that they took any advice from skaters or employed anybody with a clue. Now that Kostons and Janoskis no longer carry the SB label and are not limited to SB accounts I doubt that money is going back into the SB department and expect the SB to be dropped or rearranged again all together now they have a foothold in the market.

True story, I spoke to Keenan Milton when he was visiting on tour in the mid 90's and he told me he had contacted Nike about putting a team together because he really liked skating in them. They were interested and began initial talks, when the matter of salary came up they asked him what he thought he and possibly other riders would expect and his response was a super modest "about a thousand dollars" , their response was "$1000 a week", Keenan said "No a month", (it was the 90's and shoe deals weren't what they are now, you often were just glamourised flow), they were sort of stunned and couldn't believe that for lack of a better definition 'pro athletes' would accept such a small salary, they were used to dealing with tennis players, football players, baseball, ect. and Jordan. Talks fizzled out and Keenan stopped hearing from them. Soon after the "What if" ads appeared, no team and no skater input.

What an absolute disappointment that is.
I like Skate Mental but I was really expecting 3D to have a completely different art direction and image.

Those look awful

That shit is depressing. Inside jokes on skating aside, that can't be a foundation. This shit is bunk, I respect and admire Brian, but for real? It's skate mental version 2.0 Too many fucking companies trying to pick up demographics. I say let the skaters speak and not be told what to... SKATEBOARDING IS OVER SATURATED THESE DAYS. Jesus Christ, how many fucking new off shoots do you need. Simple answer none. He's not doing what Ed Templeton did.

Plus you faggots who are 3-5 years deep in skateboarding are cunts. I'll flex that opinion because you idiots don't even know what a slick board is.(outside of wiki and they weren't great) Reasoning is you never rode one, fuck boy fashionistas. Your blatant comments are unmerited and you know jack shit about the times. No matter how hard you fake it.

can you please explain why not knowing what a slick board is makes you a cunt? personally, i never thought owning a slick or knowing someone who did gave you real life rep points, but apparently there is something i missed.

People said the same thing about nike when it first came out. 8 years ago or so besides the dunk they made high priced ugly shoes and colorways that didn't attract the average skater. Only sneaker heads were lines up to get the latest dunk but it was rare to see anybody skating nikes. Now a days all you see is kids skating 70+ dollar janoskis. Give them some time it might end up being the next hot board company.

When Nike first came out they were so poorly received, they left skateboarding for some years, until things seemed viable for a re-brand

I do think most people are being too quick to judge. The signature boards are admittedly dissappointing, but some of the one offs are significantly better.

 BA did the art for multiple girl boards, and didn't that one "project BA" color way have a swoosh hand drawn by him? Companies always seem super willing to let him work his art into his products, I can't imagine that won't be the case for future 3d stuff, a company that he seems to have a, for him, unprecedented amount of influence in.


I was that douche that skated the Nike URL, E-Cue, Angus, etc.

the ones with the rubber mesh were my jams!  they lasted forever.

When did Nike first get into skating?

I remember Bam rode for them a long time ago. And they had that "what if all athletes were treated like skateboarders" commercial.

That's all I remember prior to them coming back with reese forbes n all dat shit.
I seem to remember the "What if" ads were about '96 or so and they had no team riders what so ever. That was their greatest failure, the other thing was they made no effort into getting shoes into skate shops and expected skateboarders to buy them from Footlocker ect. That whole campaign and the shoes lasted less than a year. It wasn't until the SB brand came about that they took any advice from skaters or employed anybody with a clue. Now that Kostons and Janoskis no longer carry the SB label and are not limited to SB accounts I doubt that money is going back into the SB department and expect the SB to be dropped or rearranged again all together now they have a foothold in the market.


man where is this shit coming from? never in my life have i seen pro model SB shoes without the SB label. I was at Nike Town in Chicago about a month ago, and all the new kostons & janoskis had SB label like they always have. I really dont know where yall be getting this stuff, seems like people been saying SB's have been taken off all the pro models for years now. I've yet to actually see it. They DID get rid of nike 6.0 & made those regular nikes, but that was a while ago.

The Janoski's have the word "skateboarding" on the tongue patch but the SB has been removed from everything including the box, the exception being with some Quickstrikes. The Kostons dropped it after the first year except for the Air Max look alikes.

It wasn't until P Rod got on board that it changed the dynamic of the brand. It was right before he had plans on releasing en es pro model , or so they say.

Nike were used back in the 80's as well, Tommy Guerrero were shown sporting nikes all time, whats the significance of that? All i simply said was that you didn't really see Nike ads on any skateboard mag or at least from what i know until they really got a team together and started publishing ads in the early millennium.  And alot of the early ads didn't have a nike sb logo, it simply said Nike Air or just Nike. Like this one of richard mulder brah.

People said the same thing about nike when it first came out 8 years ago or so besides the dunk they made high priced ugly shoes and colorways that didn't attract the average skater. Only sneaker heads were lines up to get the latest dunk but it was rare to see anybody skating nikes. Now a days all you see is kids skating 70+ dollar janoskis. Give them some time it might end up being the next hot board company.
Damn, you obviously don't know what you're talking about, brah.
yeah, im talking about when they actually starting have ads in transworld. i remember the first one i saw was of Richard Mulder doing a kickflip over a barrier or something. It wasn't until P Rod got on board that it changed the dynamic of the brand. It was right before he had plans on releasing en es pro model , or so they say. Even when P Rod first got on i dont think it was technically called Nike Sb yet. The first couple of dunks colorways that came out didn't have sb on the tongue or the box.

DAMN, you obviously don't know what you're talking about, brah.
Explain
Bam was on in the late 90's which was probably before you were born, bruh.
Nike were used back in the 80's as well, Tommy Guerrero were shown sporting nikes all time, whats the significance of that? All i simply said was that you didn't really see Nike ads on any skateboard mag or at least from what i know until they really got a team together and started publishing ads in the early millennium.  And alot of the early ads didn't have a nike sb logo, it simply said Nike Air or just Nike. Like this one of richard mulder brah.
No, dipshit. Tommy G. wasn't sponsored by NIKE. The Jordan 1's are basketball shoes. Those were just shoes that people skated in. Do you think the Adidas "Superstar" aka "Shelltoe" is a skate shoe as well? You know Richard Angelides has been wearing them for decades and he's not sponsored by Adidas. You're dumb.

how is it that the boards are TOTAL Skate Mental graphics and the shirts are a completely different aesthetic? it looks like 2 different companies.  that being said, I'm not a fan of that shirt either.  there's already a weird art board brand, it's called Krooked.

I'm a big Olson fan - although I've criticized him on this very thread, I find the hate on him kind of sad for Slap (not that I should have huge expectations).

What makes Olson great is he's comfortable being himself and sort of does his own thing. In addition to his views on skating (all about  trying to return the vibe to fun, not the super instant berrics world of media saturation) , Olson's a guy that lives the cosmopolitan lifestyle a bit, which means he doesn't wake up and go straight to hella clips in the morning and then down a gatorade and film a first try fridays He hangs around with all kinds of people and has other interests - a healthy thing for maintaining a life (ask Danny Garcia or any other pro).

As for the photo's, thats what him and Bill Strobeck do: they take weird, goofy photos and are not so scared to 'look gay' or not 'core skater' enough. If you follow either of them on instagram, they are constantly joking around and having fun. Olson seems real secure in his masculinity and isnt worried that by hugging some dude or painting his nails or dressing a certain way he's gonna catch the dreaded 'gay' that so many here fear. If you live in NY, LA or SF or any other cosmopolitan city, people are kind of over using hyper-masculinity to disguise their relative insecurities. I gaurantee you this guy not only can but does get laid more than all of the 'real bros' on here. Probably, in part, because he's not such a repressed child - women dont like guy's who are constantly trying to prove how touch and badass they are - im sure his looks dont hold him back either.

What I find disheartening is that Slap kind of reinforces the stereotypes that most on hear claim to deplore. Everyone talks about how great skating is now, with so many different styles of skating and expression being accepted. As someone who grew of age in a major city skate scene during the 90s, I think this is a good thing. I fit in back then and still do - hip hop, cargos and the whole set. But there were a lot of guys who either got hated on or tried to too hard to conform where they didnt fit. As you grow older, you want more diverse friends, and I see skating in the same vein. Do we really want everyone to be some tall boy swilling, dickies and backwords mesh hat guy? Ive skate in that scene, too, hoping pools and the whole 9 and I think its rad. But it shouldnt be alone. Olson's not TNT and he knows that. And he'd be betraying himself if he posed otherwise.

On another note, a lot of people complain on here about his lack of coverage. Although I think he does ok in that regard (and prefer that to Mikey Taylor filling up my internet with whatever cornball shit he does), I dont think his anti-filming attitude is that crazy. See the link to a carroll interview when he was about the same age - dude has always hated filming. Im not sayin Olson is Carroll, who is my hands down top skater of all time, but you get the idea.

Finally, speaking of Carroll, I think his comment on that thread upstream is telling (as I mentioned before): I dont think he's too stoked on AO these days for obvious reasons. And you have to recall that Carroll was kind of his lifeline at Girl - they were/are quite close. I think thats a bigger issue: flaking out on people like Carroll is a bigger deal than Olson having a laugh with his friends.

If you know him tell him we don't want to see his pubic trail again.  Otherwise, I'm a fan--his shit-antics are entertaining at least.

Show us more skating if you can.  No need to put out a huge part...we like the simple shit.

Olson seems real secure in his masculinity and isnt worried that by hugging some dude or painting his nails or dressing a certain way he's gonna catch the dreaded 'gay' that so many here fear. If you live in NY, LA or SF or any other cosmopolitan city, people are kind of over using hyper-masculinity to disguise their relative insecurities. I gaurantee you this guy not only can but does get laid more than all of the 'real bros' on here. Probably, in part, because he's not such a repressed child - women dont like guy's who are constantly trying to prove how touch and badass they are - im sure his looks dont hold him back either.

What I find disheartening is that Slap kind of reinforces the stereotypes that most on hear claim to deplore. Everyone talks about how great skating is now, with so many different styles of skating and expression being accepted. As someone who grew of age in a major city skate scene during the 90s, I think this is a good thing. I fit in back then and still do - hip hop, cargos and the whole set. But there were a lot of guys who either got hated on or tried to too hard to conform where they didnt fit. As you grow older, you want more diverse friends, and I see skating in the same vein. Do we really want everyone to be some tall boy swilling, dickies and backwords mesh hat guy? Ive skate in that scene, too, hoping pools and the whole 9 and I think its rad. But it shouldnt be alone. Olson's not TNT and he knows that. And he'd be betraying himself if he posed otherwise.

On another note, a lot of people complain on here about his lack of coverage. Although I think he does ok in that regard (and prefer that to Mikey Taylor filling up my internet with whatever cornball shit he does), I dont think his anti-filming attitude is that crazy. See the link to a carroll interview when he was about the same age - dude has always hated filming. Im not sayin Olson is Carroll, who is my hands down top skater of all time, but you get the idea.

Finally, speaking of Carroll, I think his comment on that thread upstream is telling (as I mentioned before): I dont think he's too stoked on AO these days for obvious reasons. And you have to recall that Carroll was kind of his lifeline at Girl - they were/are quite close. I think thats a bigger issue: flaking out on people like Carroll is a bigger deal than Olson having a laugh with his friends.

Lol what? Olsons a guy who constantly talks about "returning the vibe to fun" while other dudes are actually having fun and make it look entertaining like krooked, enjoi or baker. All of olsons footage is set to somewhat heavy music and everything is kinda serious so i dont know what youre talking about.

Also your carroll comparison is completely off base. By the time that interview came out carroll had put out 5-6 amazing video parts and lots of random footage. Olson doesnt have a questionable type part out to be whining the way he does. Carroll has filmed so much that he has the right to have an anti-filming stance and even then, he kept putting out great parts.

I think alex is an amazing skater with lots of unrealized potential but it really sucks when youre stuck digging for questionable vine and instagram clips with the occassional sick cameo in somebodys youtube clip. I dont really care if hes pro ever again but id love to see one great part out of him. Hopefully that can happen with strobeck behind the lens.

Not much of a message board arguer, so I'll leave it with this:

1) Most of Olson's footage is just him skating around (ie strobeck clips), which is the way I think he prefers it (rather than say to pretty sweet or fully flared). I think this also probably factors into his leaving Girl etc. Right or wrong, he thinks big skate productions are not how skating should be portrayed.

2) Enjoi and so forth: I bet he'd probably agree with you about how they present skating. He always says that Roger, Enjoi and Krooked produce the kind of skating he most appreciates (he said it a million times on his shitty tumblr). He didnt have much editorial say over fully flared or Pretty Sweet. To say because he skated in fully flared or pretty sweet that is how he wants his skating portrayed is kind of silly. That's the decision of Ty Evans, who chose the music, editing, tricks and so forth that get put on film. Everyone knows that Ty was given a lot of creative control over those videos, so it was never really his decision. Even with Ty leaving, I think that's part of his leaving Girl (not that I think that's a good decision) so that he could film and travel as he sees fit rather than someone elses vision.

3) Carroll. If you'll notice I added a caveat - that he's clearly not Carroll. I agree with you completely about Carrol's video part history. Im not sure where I argued that there production was similar because it was not written. You made that straw man up yourself.  What I did say is Carroll hates filming. And even though that interview was conducted after 5-6 videos (1999), Carroll has always - and always will - hate filming video parts. He quit a team, Plan B, in major part because he hated big, intense video productions (dont believe me, ask him). And it was after only 2 videos (questionable and virtual reality, the H Street parts were laid back). Sound familiar? Was Carroll a bad person for hating filming and worthy of derision in 1993/1994 when he hated filming. I would say no. If you recall, he talks extensively how he mailed it in during goldfish and mouse because he hated filming so much. Again, not saying Carroll and Olson are the same - clearly, Carroll has put out more footage than almost anyone in skateboarding, but that does not mean that the two are very dissimilar in their views on videos, which was my point.

4) I agree with you about how its a pain to find Olson skating because its so rarely on film. I think he would argue - and has - that he would prefer to put out small footage more often than hold clips for big, 5 year videos. And while your not gonna get him filming ride channel or berrics clips (a blessing, I'd argue), he's in the process of filming the Supreme video. So he basically started filming for a new video pretty quickly after pretty sweet. He's said that he got burnt out after fully flared but now gets it as far as the need to document his skating. I think what you are going to see now is him putting out his skating as he likes (supreme video, strobeck etc) rather than in a 5 year marathon video. Hopefully he produces more footage this way, which would be better in my opinion.

5) Im not trying to be some argumenative asshole or whatever. Just clarifying my point. Originally, I was actually more responding to all of the childish insults up thread or people basically posting pictures and saying 'look, hes a gay faggot, just like his dad, lulz.' I appreciate that your not one of those dudes.

for some skaters, i find i enjoy their skating enough to ignore everything else that may cause my interest to wain (i.e. social media, drama, whom is besties with whom, who recently broke up, etc).

Olson is one of them.  same goes with Dill.

I like your break down--well-worded and thought out.  You talked a lot about his aversion to putting out video parts and filming.  If this is the real issue, then he should not be pro.  The industry landscape has changed so much over the past number of years?internet/video clip dominance has created a demand for footage to be released at a higher and more consistent frequency.  Good or bad, that?s just how things are now.  It?s a case of a guy who has an outlook on skating that would work better 10-15+ years ago?before the internet boom.  I find his style and outlook refreshing, I really do.  His simplistic trick selection matched with power makes for an incredible style.  It reminds me of a young, Stereo-era Ethan Fowler (but no one will ever touch Ethan?s ability). 
I guess it comes down to this: we all have stuff in our daily lives and especially our jobs (and let?s face it, being pro is a job) that we don?t like or want to do, but you have to do it anyways.  Just like Carroll with filming- he hates it, but he still produced (and continues to produce) because it?s part of his job.  Imagine telling your boss you just really don?t like to work, but you?d like to still get the paychecks.  It wouldn?t work.  If Alex doesn?t want any of that, then he really should just work a 9-5, skate for the love of it and film little parts with his buddies for fun; similar to what the majority of us on this forum do.
 Here?s what I found odd about his departure from 3D?BA explains in his Jenkem interview that he wanted Alex ,Austyn and himself to just skate around their respective cities and homes- no hectic travel schedules that the ?big? companies take.   Just go out your door and skate.  That to me seems exactly what Alex is doing in New York.  So it?s odd he would bail so quickly.  Granted, we really don?t know what goes on behind closed doors and what?s really negotiated and expected of guys when they?re on a team, but I trust BA?s words over those of Alexs?.
 So I think Alex either needs to skate and fulfill the requirements of being a pro (which is a path he?s chosen) , or walk away and let someone who is capable of handling what?s expected of a pro take the reins.  This has become such a soap opera that we?ve aloud ourselves to be pulled into.  And that, my friends, is our fault because at the end of the day, it?s just skateboarding.

I really enjoy Alex Olson's skating - he's one of my all time favorites.

I can rightfully understand everyone's disappointment with recent events, despite not knowing fully what shaped  Alex's decisions. I'd love to give Alex the benefit of the doubt and await to hear his explanation for quitting Girl/3D, and I say this even after hearing Koston and Carrolls frustrated remarks. The fact that B.A. has remained kind with Alex (commenting on his Instagram after he left 3D) is a good indicator that recent events were less personal than they seem.

Are you talking about that video where he's skating that bench on the little slab of concrete?  Damn, I don't remember the nollie flip for some reason.  I'll have to watch it again.  Also, what clips are you referring to on Transworld?  I'd like to check those out.  It's weird, growing up (and until a few years ago), East coast skateboarding always had this really rad vibe to it. Just skating these rough spots-no flash or flare, just barging it--100% skateboarding.  Eastern Exposure 3 forever!  Anyways, there's a different vibe now.  Some people like it and that's fine, to each his own.  That's what skating is about.  But this new vibe is more fashion-forward with an emphasis more on what you're wearing and not your skating.  It's kind of fallen into the same realm as the starving artist from New York cliche.  It's cooler now to tuck your shirt in, get a diagonal haircut and do impossibles and making really obscure little video edits (Fucking Awesome piano commercial- what the hell?).  It's not art, it's wanting to be art.  It's contrived, not natural, that's the opposite of art. It's more about developing a persona, almost creating a character out of yourself.  Your skating doesn't do the talking anymore, it's what you put on your social media sites and so forth that's more important I guess.  Kind of a bummer.  
  Even though he can have some overbearing opinions at times, I would really love to hear what Oyola thinks of all these stuff.

Clearly he's not on flow. I think they're just hooking him up with boards until he figures out his next move.

Damn AO's making harder and harder to back him. I've said something similar before but I really like his skating. I don't even mind his rate of footage output. I just wish he'd kick himself off of nike because I'd like to see a less entitled, less bitter dude make that cash.

what's funny is that once the Supreme video comes out, everyone talking mad shit in this thread is going to shut the fuck up and remember how much Olson absolutely kills it on a board. Whatever weird photos and videos he takes when he's goofing off with Fat Bill has no impact whatsoever on what he's doing on a skateboard.

Yes and I can't wait to hear that silence!  ;D

But on another note it is my understanding that William Strobeck* does not want to be called "Fat Bill" anymore because 1. He's not fat and 2. In the cinematographers  project he has that title that says "Fat Bill is dead"

I am actually looking forward to seeing Alex moreso than Dylan.  at this point as I feel he definitely has something to prove after making all of these "power moves." Aside: I'm also really looking forward to what Nakel Smith and Sean Pablo have to offer.

His random youtube/instagram clips from Strobeck and Mark Gonazles made me really wish he had a full part in Pretty Sweet- even his "lost and filmed" clip is the truth.

Too much hating going on up in here. If you actually took the time to research you would know that he left 3d now because he didn't like the direct BA was going with it. He thought it was better to leave now than two years later when everything is in motion.
