This shit allows Daryl Angel to still get paychecks while Fred Gall begs for money on the internet.

Not the worst collab of 2018, but what the fuck is going on at Habitat? Castrucci's just phoning it in.

I think this is firm proof that Habitat has run its course

hell, if you're going to jump the shark and try to sell product based off the popularity of a tv show, why not just mega ramp launch over the shark and do a collab with the big bang theory. it's not like the shows these companies have been picking for collabs have deep ties to skateboarding (diamond X family guy, primitive X dragon ball z, primitive X frank and morty, primitive X transformers, enjoi X my little pony, etc.), so you might as well pick the most popular show out there. even if just 1% of the 18.4 million people that watch the show bought a deck as a wall hanger, it'd be a lot more product than some companies have sold throughout their entire existence. sure, getting the rights for the collab might be pricey, but if santa cruz was able to do those star wars decks, i imagine it's within the realm of possibility.

i get why companies do collabs like this and i dont blame them but i wish these legacy brands would just pull the plug instead hanging on by doing stuff like this.

I'd love to see some of you guys school pictures along the way. I'm sure your parents wanted to give up on you many times along the way based on your "phases". Hot Topic collabs with emo hair and white belts.

But I'm sure many of you were probably always cool.

i like your nurturing approach, but i'm wondering, for how long did you hold on to hope that world industries would eventually make it through its wet willy/flame boy phase?

i'm willing to overlook this phase from habitat just as i would if i were to have a child that wore an insane clown posse shirt, but if habitat starts going on a primitive-esque run of collabs, just as if that kid were to start rocking juggalo face paint, i may have to cut all ties.

HAH. I had a hard time with the Fred Gall thing. I get that some people are clueless as a result of upbringing, lack of support systems, education, etc, but you're telling me Fred Gall didn't encounter a single person that could have been helpful or given him some direction....

And yes, this collaboration is terrible.

it just sucks when a formerly awesome companies image alone is no longer marketable enough to survive on and you have to go after non skaters to make a buck.

So, by likening this board series to a Hot Topic lookbook, you agree that this is garbage?

Gnar'd. This is the type of stuff that unfortunately in this day and age, is necessary for some companies to pay the bills. I don't like it, but I also want Habitat to be around. This company means a ton to me and has since day 1. Pals Art Hellman and SFB can back that fact. I am willing to overlook a certain level of this shit but I also agree with Heckler's post above...it sucks sometimes to see this stuff from a once mighty company, but if it keeps the lights on and is able to pay dudes like Silas and keep Joe working on great shit, so be it. Habitat is working on a video. If this Bob's Burgers collab helps underwrite them to get that video to us, fucking perfect.

Brennan Conroy gave this interview to Jenkem in 2014 right around the time Habitat rose from the ashes of the Pac Vector debacle. But it's a timely read even now.

http://www.jenkemmag.com/home/2014/07/08/habitat-skateboards-is-still-alive/

It sheds some light into why companies have to do collabs like this. At the time of this interview he mentions that everyone gave Joe Castucci shit for doing the cork longboards, but those cork longboards subsidized some other rad shit they were doing.
