Arto Saari on WESC
« on: April 25, 2013, 04:33:50 AM »
I know its Arto, and he is a legend, but this is really disappointing. I really hope for a real welcome video in near future.

Ha ha ha New Balance and WESC; Arto has turned into the rad dad who works in advertising and lives in a well gentrified neighborhood.

Yeah he could learn a new trick or two or do that same frontside grind at least in a different pool once and a while. I'm a huge fan, but it's just weird cuz I know he has a lot more tranny skills. Put on a helmet and some pads and start doing some real shit.

He's livin the dream. PERFECTION. The guy comes out of rural Finland, kills it for years and now lands on these profitable sponsors. Fully deserved. Will always be one the greatest.

WESC is a Swedish company so the Scandinavian ties would make sense but I thought Fins hated Swedes or maybe it was Russians

Saying an entire ethnic group hates another ethnic group just because of their different ethnicities is one of the stupidest stereotypical things people think in the world. everyone is an individual u fucking retard

WeSC actually wasn't doing very well in the states so the original, Scandinavian WeSC is now based out of Swedend and the American part is owned by this company: http://www.theovedgroup.com/#!about/c20r9

He actually doesn't really.  He was on Flip forever, then he was on Alien for what? Four years? That's a decent amount of time and now he's back on Flip.  He was on eS forever and they transitioned him to etnies when they were reinventing themselves and that lasted a long time too before he joined Gravis.  Now hw has NB and WESC since Gravis and Analog folded.  I don't think that's changing sponsors a lot.

Think Russia invaded Finland in WW2, tried to turn it red.  Lets just say the relationship is tainted

Oh yeah, one other thing.  We're not a bunch of individuals in this world.  We're all part of collectives, that's because we have relationships with other people.

This is true. In the rink, its fucking on but outside of the rink, Fins and Swedes high fives all day.

I think this seems like a good move for Arto. NB and Wesc is perfect for him now, he can stay all low key and not really do much and still cash decent checks. Good for him
