2:03 onwards for some footy of Sage and Sean


Yep, thanks for reinforcing how much those kids suck. A lot of that footage is in Silverlake. If I'm not filming a 3-flip noseslide on a ledge this dude is merely backside-tailsliding then something is wrong. The ledge that dude noseblunts and makes a big deal about is a fucking joke too.

I like Alex Olson footage but then again, he's not very good or consistent. That ledge he tailslides to impossible out in Pretty Sweet - it took him literally over 20+ fucking days at a minimum 2+hr sessions(over a 2 month span of time that I witnessed). Yes, it was an amazing trick but I'm pretty sure some of us Slappers on here could do it if they tried it that long(considering I nose and tailslide it going to and from the liquor store). Trying to impossible out for 20+ hours just doesn't seem fun to me and I like to have fun skateboarding.

I'm glad those kids are getting hooked up for the mere fact that soon skateboarding will die again(because of kids that suck) and only us truly dedicated to pushing the streets and having fun with our friends will remain.

debatable, more like 3 shuv.
That goofy mother fuckin' man in that room will survive that shit.

If Toy doesn't do anything with Tyshawn Jones then Ave and Dill should hook him up. That kid has mad potential and I could see him really blowing up within the next few years.

i think they are waiting for him to grow up and by that time he will be that much better. because he has skated with the team and everyone seems to like him. same goes for emerica

I don't understand all the hate, they are skating and skating well to so degree. who cares what clothes they wear? I'm sure they chill out with their friends just like you and I do.

Tyshawn is fucking killer. Watching that kid cruise around L.E.S is both impressive and intimidating that someone that young is already so consistent. Him and Kevin Bradley are gonna be ones to look out for in the future.

Following narcissists on instagram in order to decry their narcissism seems like one of those philosophical quandaries you shouldn't do.

Ugh. So they really are using "fucking awesome" and turning it into a board company. I guess it suits Dill but AVE...not so much.

AVE was a bit of a dickhead the one time I met him at the Pretty Sweet premiere. Dylan, Ave, and their girlfriends were sitting in front of me and when they sat down I said what's up. I'd seen AVE skating this spot outside of Good Luck Bar - trying to 50-50 a bump to fence- while I was sitting at a red light the day before and asked him if he got it. He sort of mumbled something back about how he didn't know what I was talking about then said he lived in a tent that was next to that empty parking lot. I told him I would have expected Vans to pay better than that.

The tent next to the parking lot bit seems to imply, to me at least, that he'd been trying that trick for a while and he feels as though he lives there.

and then I'll say "yeah but the kids are the ones who pay AVE's bills!" and then he'll say "yeah, it's fucking awesome!"

and then SLAP message boards will disappear for good.

Their first video should be a reference to the World classic "Two World Industries Men" they could call it "Two Fucking Awesome Crackheads"

Fucking awesome is fucking stupid. Are these guys serious? How many moms are going to buy their 12 year old a fucking awesome board? how many older skaters are going to support this corny shit? Fucking awesome is going to go fucking bankrupt. Dummies.

yeah because im sure a bunch of grown ass men want to be wearing those all-over print FUCKING AWESOME T-shirts & hoodies. I think they blew it with the name honestly, and its looking like they might've bit off more than they can chew with starting this company. id assume theyll figure it out eventually & get back on track, but Dill & Ave are not Carroll & Howard. even if its a "grass roots" skate company its still a BUSINESS venture that requires the smarts & hard work to even have a chance to be successful. All they really got going for them is their names & the buzz around them quitting alien. they're gonna be in for some hard lessons in the early goings for sure.

I wouldn't go that far. Fucking Awesome already has a huge following with the Odd Future/Fairfax crowd and celebs like Lil Wayne and more have rocked them in photo shoots. They've got the fashion world playing into it so a Palace 2.0 deal seems likely. They'll make a bunch of exclusive items and people will cling to it like flys to shit patties.

Once most of their income starts coming from hypebeast hipsters & people who jock the skateboarding "lifestyle" look, theyll start catering more & more to that audience to the point where they'll just be another "upriver" trendy skate company. I aint like some huge fan of these guys but I was hoping for a more grimey, mature type of brand that could bring something new to the game, as opposed to them being just another hipster company.

Fucking Awesome has a huge following? I don't know about that. I know they have been around but I swear that company wasn't doing shit for a long time. Even the HUF store in SF tried to push that brand and I don't think no one gave a shit about them. I mean I am sure they do have their fellow people that support them but I don't think it is enough keep afloat or make tons of money anyways.
