Good bye Emerica
« on: February 22, 2012, 11:53:19 AM »
Pontus Alv off Emerica:



"Last week I quitted Emerica after a 10 year long relationship. Like any relationship there has been some great times and memories vice versa. The last years the connection and feeling has not really been there, I been over it for quite some time and I like i once said ? When life is on repeat it is time to move on? So I did. I have a new shoe sponsor already and the future is looking amazing. A new chapter is about to start and I feel really stoked and good about it.

Well here is a clip that never made it out there. It was suppose to be two parts and so on. This is the rough version of the first part?.

Of course I personally wanna thank Emerica for the good times we did had over the years and for their support from time to time.

Keep the stoke burning."

I thought it was Emerica going under? I wish Sole Tech did a poll and ask it's audience which shoe company they would rather axe off. I am sure everyone would have said Etnies.

Etnies is a fucking money maker though. No way they would ever get rid of them as long as they are selling in the malls.

Fact is Es was doing the worst, so why the hell would you need a poll? Sole tech doesn't care who buys their shoes as long as someone does. Soletech's 'audience' is the people who buy their shoes. Nuff said...



About the video, this dude is rad in every sense. Really dropping some knowledge in the video, and you can understand when people say they don't care what brands they support. They don't care because it doesn't change what they really enjoy: the actual skateboarding. There's really something so honest about that mindset, and you can't help but respect it.

Yes. Right now there are 100 or so Slap Pals creating effigies of you and burning them, in a dark moldy room, with no windows. Circling the fire  are hungry dogs wearing diapers and barking your name.

Pontus Alv off Emerica:



"Last week I quitted Emerica after a 10 year long relationship. Like any relationship there has been some great times and memories vice versa. The last years the connection and feeling has not really been there, I been over it for quite some time and I like i once said ? When life is on repeat it is time to move on? So I did. I have a new shoe sponsor already and the future is looking amazing. A new chapter is about to start and I feel really stoked and good about it.

Well here is a clip that never made it out there. It was suppose to be two parts and so on. This is the rough version of the first part?.

Of course I personally wanna thank Emerica for the good times we did had over the years and for their support from time to time.

Keep the stoke burning."

lol. quitted

It kinda seems like he still posts the same way for the most part.

Pontus seems like one of the smartest pros out there. It shows in his trick selection and the style of his videos.

They made them in other colors too......but they didn't sell for shit in the States, so they cut them from the line. Good luck finding a pair. And if you do lemme know where
