Honestly internet fights are pretty lame.  I doubt Richie Jackson would honestly fight anyone in Tum Yeto in real life.  Hes way too full of himself, look at his t-shirts he sells....

As for Mike Sinclair and Tum Yeto, they are the best and actually connected with the skating community.  I had an email interview with Ed when I was back in high school while I was doing a project on being a vegetarian/vegan athlete and I emailed Mike which he just instinctively asked Ed to be in it.  Thanks Tum Yeto and yes I am a Loyal Pawn

Thanks Mike and Tum Yeto, most of know its a business and hard decisions have to happen, but Tum Yeto keeps it real as well compared to the other skateboard distributions

toy machine & duffel would be the only things making tum yeto money, the day duffel leaves there finished.

didnt omar say he was going to get kicked off for having a knee surgery that would keep him from having a part in art bars
He's said as much. Omar has no love for TumYeto.
Like Daewon said: if skateboarding is a ten story building, Rodney is on eleventh floor.

I'm willing to bet it was an ACE hardware that went out of business and the skateshop that took over just kept the signs.

Sinclair is dope.

Remember when Richie Jackson posted on here?  Shit was embarrassing.  He was peddling the "tortured intellect" bullshit.

As a fan of skateboarding, I met Sierra at Woodward and thought he was a really nice guy.  that being said, most kids are not going to get behind a super christian dude with 0 fashion sense, decked out in Circa's/stock gear as Grecs would put it.  Shit just isnt going to happen.

Can someone forward Sinclairs message to Pops please...

Fellers and Murphy had a good run. They both never really hit it big but were on the spotlight at some point. Some pros can get lucky and milk a company for years longer without putting any effort. At the end of the day there is a younger more hungrier kid that can do all your tricks and willing to take less money to take your spot. Some companies just have the money or are willing to let that one friend take advantage of a once in lifetime opportunity. Then there's situations like Castillo where it just doesn't make sense.

wow, real shit 101.  pro skaters take note.  do your job so you can keep getting paid.  gone are the days being known off of a 4yo part.  it's like you have to create an image and brand around yourself to be relevant these days.  no more being the introspective skater that you had to chase to get coverage.  as much as i hate nyjah and his cheese crackers, he's out there whoring himself so he can keep getting paid(not justifying it at all btw).  it's like the 1% economy in skating now. 

never liked how tumyeto 'seemingly' runs their business, but sinclair is correct in this instance.  he's been known for being a harsh dude, but i doubt he's been unfair.  if those guys really want it, there's always gonna be a way to stick around in the greater scheme of skateboarding.  good to hear both sides of the story in this inflammatory internet age.  

also, it' been a min since i've bought anything tum yeto related, so sorry fellers and murphy for not supporting you guys. 


I always get a chuckle outta this vid tho. 


that was weird...

I'm just happy to say I've been skating for over ten years and have never bought a tum yeto board

but I have bought a board from a hardware store though


like the dude above said, its better than buying one from a mall.

Nah dude, regurgitate that cock out from the depths of your throat.  We got companies ACTUALLY keeping it real now.  We don't have to settle for companies who sell their shit to CCS, Active, Zumiez, and ACE???  Tum-yeto is a mall brand now... as well as anyone else in those shops.  There are distributions out there thriving without throwing people under the bus now. There are real underground companies out there to support.  Shit is gonna have to change if you sell-outs want to be able to keep that skater-owned clout.  You aren't keeping it real if your doing "CCS exclusive color ways" and bullshit.  Sorry.  We have options now.  And more and more shops are stocking Theories brands and other independent brand every day.  

I support Tum Yeto because of the skaters they sponsor and because they actually respond back to the community.  I'm all for the underground and small brands, but companies have to stay afloat hence why you see companies like Emerica or Toy Machine selling at Zumies which I have no problem with.  I dont like Zumies and shit, but companies have to do what they got to do.

It just seems like F tries to pick up guys at a discount.  Either no name-ers who are willing to huck for a buck or it's guys leaving Black Box.  I mean, it seemed really cool at the time that they picked up those guys who got kicked off or left Black Box or whatever, but when it's all said and done, it kind of seems a little suspect. 

"yeah, we're really cool for hooking these guys up when they would have been on the street, but now that their Black Box residual notoriety has worn off, we just have to make a business decision and tell them to get a fucking job and grow up."  Obviously the front end is a business decision too and not them just "being legit."

Why did Leo leave?  F has some problems keeping guys on both ends of the spectrum.  Without a Chris Cole or Shane O'Neill type of skater, they're just going to be on Black Label path here pretty soon.  The new kids you're going to rebut me with that you're stoked on at the moment, they'll be old and lazy in a couple years too. It's cyclical, and that's why the F's image is suffering so much.

Sure why not? Just another team I wouldn't give a fuck about  ;) Richie does some rad shit but that Jason Park is way to gross to watch.

Is this a post to try and get Sinclair to to take notice of this guy?

That Snapper guy is horrible to watch. No different to a thousand other kids who are flowed.

Not surprised to hear that about Fellars/Murphy.

Maybe now Foundation will stop sleeping and put Ryan Cooper fully on.
i have no idea what she is saying because she is a woman, and i dont care.
