That internetworth meter is way off.

It's not exactly a statement from Merril Lynch, but if anything these are likely to be lowball estimates. Over the past 20 years, Rickoo has skimmed from every piece of Girl, Chocolate & 4 Star piece sold. Plus Lakai money. Not to mention, once you have dough, it opens up all kinds of other revenue streams--stocks & bonds, mutuals & index funds, real estate flippage, etc. He may not have $40m in the bank but when you consider the equity value of brands in which he's a stakeholder, I'd be shocked if he was worth under $45m.

people need to stop posting quotes from that website.  it's complete bullshit.  at best it might aggregate random tidbits of info it gathers from the web; not an exact science by any means.

Just fucking stop.  If you believe that shit is even close to accurate OR a lowball, I have something else off the internet for you to believe in.

No one said it was. Whatever. The point is, by any measure, they're both loaded out the ass.

How would you know? Your paycheck-to-paycheck ass clearly can't wrap your head around what it's like to own a business and be wealthy. There are thousands upon thousands of multi-multi millionaires in America, and if you believe the owners of some of the global skateboard industry's biggest brands (one of whom is a successful Hollywood filmmaker) aren't among them, then you're mentally deficient. Please exit the discussion.

I'm having trouble wrapping my head around how YOU know what it's like to own a business or be wealthy.  You know as well as I do that know one gives a fuck about your "apparel inspired by life in DTLA & central cities everywhere" or your raw fruit diet.  We only care about this awesome video you posted of yourself:

Ok so I'm not saying Rickoo Pro skater, multi-brand owner is way off on 45 million net worth estimate, Its just that Spike should be bigger on that estimate.
And I just read that They did not include Spike Jonze as a multi skateboard brand owner. That's how they miss that estimate.
Roger that...

Zzzzz... and this quickly degenerated in to ad hominem irrelevancy. Douchebag. I suppose you think because Rick Howard can still switch tre he's just "one of us" and you don't like to think of him as that guy with a portfolio worth gazillions, but I assure you, he's that guy. Or would you care to correct me (and celebritynetworth.com) by chiming in with your own estimation of his net worth?

As it happens, I've rubbed shoulders with literally hundreds of millionaires, even a few billionaires, during a career about which you know absolutely zero (and presume far too much), and when you have a successful business of any type, it doesn't take much to put your net worth above the million mark. And after you've made your first million, the second one's much easier. Play your cards right (as Rickoo clearly has), moving millions of units over the years in dozens of countries around the world, and it's actually not that big a deal to achieve a net worth in the $50m range.

Now since you've made something of a second career out of a Slap Pal and it's clearly skewing your sense of reality to the point where you've become obstinately opinionated about matters of which you have seemingly little comprehension, I'll encourage the thread to return to the topic by leaving you with this tidbit of advice:

I don't think I presume too much.  I only presumed you're a chode.  Is that too much?  What's less than an inch of skin between the balls and the asshole?  Half an inch?  Ok, you can be half a chode.

This place is definitely Duffel level.

Ty sorry, Pretty Sweet was dull and Fully Flared too.

May be all the filming pressure results in videos that aren't much fun to watch either.

Hope their next filmer gets the spark back.

After this and 360 frip's comment, I went to look on Urban Dictionary.  I always thought that taint and chode were synonymous, but I'd never heard of the wider than long penis definition.  It turns out WE ALL WIN, it's just that Nallid gets to be first.

I always thought a chode was a small nob.

So, a chode can be a taint too.

That could lead to confusion. "I said suck my chode, not my taint."

Also is being called a taint (chode definition 2) an insult?

I feel like Ty has been straight up with everyone here. He admits freely that he's not us. We are motivated by our love of skating - nothing else.

Ty's not solely motivated by that. He's interested in making films. He's focused on his career. He's trying to find a way to stay creatively engaged and make a living. He made some pretty fucking good skate vids along the way, and as it turns out, MJ's footy wasn't deleted after all, so...

"Thanks for the vids & good luck bro," seems like a more appropriate response than "fuck Ty," but maybe I'm just missing something.
