I'm gonna be spening my evening with a nice glass of red and the poems of Mr Vallely.

Anyone remember when he punched O'Meally years ago for expressing the mildest of criticisms after one of his "spoken word" performances?

The press release on the Street Plant website about Svitak is fucking hilarious. Who does he think his market is, or what kind of brand does he think he has that he needs such an official press release with industry jargon much less any type of formal press release at all?

"INFORMATION RELEASE 002

Contact Person: Mike Vallely

Re: KRISTIAN SVITAK
Street Plant Battalion / Ground Assault Division Skater

Kristian Svitak is the newest member of the Street Plant Battalion Skateboard Team, although he is no stranger to the sport itself. His name continues to be passed around the skateboard grapevine as being one of the most dedicated skaters anywhere.

Mike Vallely, president of the Long Beach based Street Plant skateboard company says of the not-so-young skater, �Simply put, Kristian is one of the most passionate skaters around. He seems to have stayed true to his own personal style of skating and maintained his own personal approach. He is simply one of my all-time favorite skateboarders!�

Vallely recently returned from San Diego where he had dinner with Svitak and agreed to put him on the team. Emily Vallely, vice-president of Street Plant says, �Kristian is like my big brother. I remember touring through France and Switzerland with him in 2000 and us getting car sick together.�

The Street Plant skateboard company will be releasing a new signature model Svitak skateboard, resplendent with his busted-ass-grill staring into the future of skateboarding. With T-shirts and stickers and skateboards all helping to spread Svitak�s name through the land, it would seem that he is about to become a household word."

Off 1031 and on Street Plant and soon he will become a household word? The wording of that doesn't even make sense.

It's crazy that Vallely probably actually believes all his own bullshit. "This brand is gonna be different this time. This is what I've always wanted. Everything else was just a detour on the road to getting me to this point."

Who does Vallely think he is?  Vito Genovese?  "I need to have a sit down with Svitak.  He will join Street Plant.  He will not take a bite of his Cold Cut Combo until he kisses the ring." 

Vallely has an Eagle eye for a business opportunity.  He thought 2013 was a good time to take the reigns of Black Flag.  Clearly his timing is spot on.  Anyone who invests in anything he is hocking will end up disappointed.

The one thing that i've noticed about Vallely is that he's always trying to 'cash in' on whats hot. I dont know the guy and this isn't a personal attack, but im the consumer here.

Theres a huge difference between having 'a lot of interests' and just straight up trading lives.

This dude sees that people respect his 'influence' in skating more than his current skateboarding (there has even been mention of it in this thread) so he's obviously using that as his marketing ploy..the sad thing is, this is his best idea to date.

What happend to elephant?

The original distributor sold it to Brad Dorfman's Select distribution. They use their own woodshop (no more PS Stix).

I'm not sure how much Mike V owns of Elephant. Typically, the skater shops an idea around to an established distributor and is employed as brand manager/creative director or licenses the name and also takes on a managerial role. I'd probably bail too if I was forced into that situation.

But Select is considerably more legit than the bs distributor they used before. Seems like they would have more freedom and be around more skate brands vs longboarders.

Also, hasn't Mike V had enough experience getting "screwed" out of companies that he supposedly owns or is doing "without a middleman" to know how to protect himself so that shit doesn't happen?

Because of this, I'd fucking love it if he tried some Bianca Chandon thing and called it Fag Bash and then didn't understand why everybody was bummed on the idea.

Everything else was just a detour on the road to getting me to this point."

So what you are saying is, his seminal release "Drive" was not just a solo tour video, but rather a metaphor for creating the ultimate brand.


Exploring this further, the streetplant was not just a trick he popularized in the 80s, but rather his attempt at forshadowing the process of creating the ultimate brand, TV Transit Vallely By The Sword Elephant, fuck, I mean Street Plant!


Everything Mike V does is a metaphor. He's a poet.

Thousands. This guy has wanted to become Rollins for 30 years. Kinda gay!
And let's face it he has.

1) Once very relevant/inspirational in a "subculture" (like rollins)
2) Acts superior/intellectually/physically/etc (like Rollins)
3) Random tattoos that he said "i look at them as scars" (direct ripoff line that rollins has said)
4) Started other ventures as career is starting to wind down (rollins to acting/UN b.s. , vallely to wrestling, hockey)
5) "Spoken word" about deep stuff (like rollins)
6) complete douchebag now (like roolins)
7) black flag

I wouldn't go that far. They both seem shitty, not to mention that Select still sells a signature re-issue board of a convicted rapist/murderer and justifies it by omitting his full name (but still using his moniker). The other distributor is run by Joey Pulsifer.

I am completely blown away by this. I have had real bad vibes from Vallely since he did the DIY brand and bad-mouthed corporations in skateboarding, then almost immediately had a board on Powell. He seriously jumps off of companies way too much.

Also, the whole Rollins, [I am the incinerator, I burn desire, and enjoy pain and challenge] bullshit is all a gimmick it seems with Vallely. I do respect Rollins a lot because, he is more of a pioneer in a sense; while Vallely seriously is just the weaker, uninformed Rollins of skateboarding.

It is a shame because if he would just quit preaching and skate he would be a favorite to me for sure. I just can't support someone who is fly by night and basically lying to children to buy fake boobs or something he doesn't need.

This.

I'll watch him skate all day. I don't need to hear him tell his not-that-interesting life story in multiple dvds and acting like touring to skate is hardcore (you know he read get in the van too many times just by this activity!).

Another thing, how many companies has he started now? this has got to be a record

I'm intrigued by this statement.  Fake boobs that Vallely doesn't need, or fake boobs that the child doesn't need?

Elephant was actually kinda ok.  the whole team filled with people that are all sorta weird was cool. 


but how the fuck could you be a rider for Elephant skateboards without Mike V?  That's so bizarre, why would you even want to at that point. 




also fuck Mike V for upselling those Black Flag boards on his personal ebay page... that's for guys like me to do.

Someone tell Russ Pope to put Jason Adams on Transportation Unit, seems like a great fit.
Jason rode for Creature and Scarecrow with Russ, TU is mostly art based with cool shapes and they share A love of Curbs.
Riding for A brand started by someone else who bailed out is just a bummer and doing it for a check.

[She puts the lotion in the basket] comes to mind. When it comes down to it, Vallely has a particular lifestyle and has to be skateboarder, so he doesn't whatever he can to pay for it and there we have it, By 'elephant The powell Sword street DIY plant transit'. . . i guarantee everyone that starts skating in the near future will send pics of their new street plant board to vallely so he can post it on his hardcore website, that has links to Black Flag. (Ginn got arrested for molesting his daughters, so we might not see a tour for a while).
