I can see it working. An LA based part, split with him and AA could be super rad.

He said he doesn't film in LA, just lives there. This is a huge loss for WKND. At least he helped legitimize the brand. He probably wants to be on a company that'll promote him more. He needs it since he kind of fell off for a while. WKND is probably gonna need another big name to stay relevant.
he literally skated LA high in his former part and his Who's to say part is mostly LA clips

yea he might have said that at some point but a good chunk of his footage the past few years has been LA.

WKND Thrasher interview from today.....

"Austyn Gillette: Austyn is like the hot girl you date that's totally out of your league and everyone knows it. But you continue being with her knowing for damn sure one day out of nowhere youíre going to come home to an empty apartment with a letter on the counter saying she's met somebody else. When that moment finally presents itself you stop and think, nobody is ever going to treat you as good as I did. But then you remember that really hot chicks always fall upward. Then you start to get a little angry and crazy because you know the next person will probably treat them evern better than you did. Love stinks!"


Hmmmm......

Cryptic?  Iíd say that it is the exact opposite.  Overt, one might say.  Btw, the quote from the article  had more pathos than a copy of Oedipus Rex.

https://www.slamcity.com/blog/austyn-gillette-interview-2/

Can you tell us any more about the new board company we have heard rumours about?

I actually can't! Not because I've signed an NDA or whatever but I don't have any answers. There's no name, there's no home for it, there's kind of a home for it. I'm sure the rumours are probably true and people would expect that. I'm really excited about it though, it's three or four of us. I'm not the nucleus of the brand or anything which is kind of nice because with Former I'm pretty busy and I don't know if I could take that on. I'm not really good from a brand standpoint creating something. Maybe it's just skateboards, because I've been a part of it for so long. With clothing there's a lot of flexibility but with skateboards i wouldn't even know where to start other than I know the shape I like and the people I like. In order for it to work I don't know what that takes nowadays.


no name, no home, three or four riders, and austyn is not the nucleus. shane o'neill's company?

Can guarantee it's not shane o'neills company. Probably out of FA camp, definitely will be including jake anderson. Probably other rumored fa guys like louie lopez or something.

find it odd him leaving wknd, but the analogy about austyn being the hot girl youre dating thats out of your league is spot on.

also, i was under the impression that dill doesnt much care for austyn so cant see him going to a new fa umbrella company. can more likely see it being something completely left field, likely with jake anderson (as already mentioned) and two unknown rippers from new zealand or some shit

All fun speculation, right.

I guess they could just be sending him boards, but he's been rocking FA and Hockey boards for several weeks now... Maybe the line about the brand not having a home, but actually having a home is a clue? (Funeral Home)

Or if it was as suggested and he's going to Shanes team (which I doubt), wouldn't he be skating one of their blanks/shapes? It appears that's what Shane himself is doing.

He is in constant talks with Dill. Nothing is locked in yet but It'll be interesting to see what happens with him & Jake Anderson if nothing eventuates. My understanding is their preference is Hockey if another company does not come to fruition.

And no longer on the WKND team page... This is all sad.

Sad? I'm stoked I might be able to buy an Austyn pro model now for the first time in years! Been waiting for this day since they announced him on the team.

I honestly thought it was a skit at first like they did with koston.

I am a big Mason Silva fan. I don't know specifics of why it ain't happening, but it ain't happening. People who you would need to say yes said no.
