Many claim to be skater owned.

Is Alien again skater owned? What about Zero? Half Jamie, half Chris, am I right?
Rob Dyrdek bought Alien and Habitat. And Zero is half Jamie half Chris.

so according to this thread either every company is skater owned or we have a plethora of naive kids that believe anything the skate industry tells them. I'm gonna go with the later.

just because a pro says he owns a company does not equate to that pro being the only owner. If anything, when a pro says that its just to keep you from looking behind the curtain.

I really love the small companies with the soul of a true skater running the whole thing. This one from Costa Rica. Just a tight crew of skaters !

Most, if not all smaller independent companies are skater owned. Pretty much every big company has some kind of corporate backing now a days. Nothing wrong with that, its good business, but:

Roger, Heavy, Sausage, The Killing Floor, Music, Scumco, Cockfight are all owned by skaters.

the dude who runs music (or used to) owns a skateboard but that's about it, i've seen him hold one, and barely set foot on it. he's obese.
You should never trust a man who claims he doesn't know about free internet porn.
