Could see him on Krooked, maybe Shane recruited him to give his new company a hesh feel

People on Slap act like Krooked is the O Negative Blood Type of board brands. Anytime anyone leaves a company someone has to say, ďthey could see them on krooked.Ē

toad has his own electrical contracting business for a LONG time.  anywhere he lives is because of the money he's made working his ass off, not from Blood Wizard.  If you think he lives in a "mansion" because of BW, you're as delusional as Jerry.

thats what i'm trying to figure out if he's talking about senn or toad or both of them.

I heard Sennís son lives in a castle on Mustafar

I think Senn recently had a Go Fund Me going in furtherance of the goal of building a bowl somewhere. This is not mansion behaviour.

That Instagram post from Blood Wizard made me want to buy one of their boards more Than Jerry Gurney ever did.

Exactly. Without Jerry bw just got 10x more interesting to me.

Great analysis, any theories on what might be behind this spike in the data?

His insta stories are interesting.....anyone catch those texts messages from toad, he seemed like a bitch.
yeah, BUT Gurney was referring to himself as a genius who people will never get just hours beforehand so I'm willing to bet that it's not Toad who is at fault here.

He's obviously starting a band that will rock you.
unless it's a total Sabbat worship band, I'm not even slightly interested ....

This is hilarious.

By Jerryís statement he was getting maybe $700 a month to ride for them? Just for decks nowadays  thatís not bad for a small co and for being a fucking kook

thats what i'm trying to figure out if he's talking about senn or toad or both of them.
BOTH have other jobs. Senn does like fishing expeditions or something in Hawaii, and Toad is an electrician or whatever that other dude said.
Toad is rad and a legend and used to put on the greatest event in skateboarding (chili bowl).
Senn is a legend and SOTY.
Both have to work other jobs to get their organic veggies.
The fact that Jerry thinks he deserves to get by only from the income he gets from that company when those guys canít is ridiculous.
Worth noting: a friend of mine from SD recently told
me Nick Merlino works in a grocery store to get by. That dude has pulled some epic shit and rides for a much more well-established brand.
The fact is, most pros donít get by on board company salaries- including the rich ones who get much more money from shoe, clothing, and energy drink people.
To me it sounds like reality hit Jerry that he wasnít buying a mansion with blood wizard royalties, and rather than face reality and make changes he needed to in order to survive, he lashed out at the people who canít pay him what he wishes he could get.
The reality will set in though. Hereís the thing: people upset with being underpaid at a job who are worth more get other options and take them, they donít quit with an angry public letter and no new sponsor. Aaron Herrington didnít decide Blood Wizard wasnít good enough and decide to publicly angrily quit without another sponsor, he just ended up on Polar because he liked that opportunity more. Happens all the time with other pros as they outgrow small sponsors. Usually ďyou donít pay me enough Iím worth more you greedy assholes!Ē doesnít go well. Ask Keelan Dadd or (allegedly) Brian Emmers
Also, if Toad owns a multimillion dollar property in SF, I wouldnít be shocked if the dude bought before the boom. I have a friend whose parents sold a house in Potrero Hill (sf neighborhood) for like $2.7 million that they bought for under $100k in the 90ís. Back then being near projects and a short walk from 24th st. brought the price down...not anymore!

ZUMIEZ :P

Gregson is arguably the better skater (different styles for sure) but Gurney was the face of that company as he was the most out there.

Gip, please, shut the fuck up. You don't need to act like you know exactly what is going on in every situation. I grew up skating with some of the Blood Wizard pros, and I'm not going to share specifics, but riders are getting fucked.

I'm not defending Gurney's response, but whoever said he's making $700 a month is an idiot. Also, yea, Merlino and all of Foundation is getting fucked over. I guarantee Sincalair's salary is more than the whole team makes while he still works for Nike. That has nothing to do with the riders but the upper management, which is the same as Blood Wizard.

But, but, he bought before the boom! Fuck off Gipper. You just look for controversy to share your bullshit opinions.

This. Gip, your opinion isn't worth anything.

I agree with gip, im honestly shocked that anybody on bloodwizard gets paid more than royalties. If you ride for bw i think you know from the start that its for the love not the check.
only in skateboarding is putting an adult in a position where they might have to actually work for their income "ruining their life"  ::)
