1031 on vacation, Svitak skating for Vallely's new company
« on: January 13, 2015, 11:23:46 AM »
From his Facebook:

1031 Skateboards is going on vacation. We will be putting all of our focus and money into Landshark Wheels. Landshark has been growing at a very fast rate for us and is requiring our full attention. We are marking all of our existing 1031 boards down . So if you want to support 1031 one last time and get a great deal on an American made skateboard, get them now at www.Regulatordist.com. All operations with Beer City, Landshark and Regulator Distribution are business as usual.

I will now be joining my old pal Mike Vallely at his growing and evolving company, Street Plant Brand. Ive been watching what Mike has been doing with this over the past year. I understand it, I get it and I am excited about it! Stay tuned for my new pro model decks coming out soon at www.streetplantbrand.com @streetplantbrnd

Thanks you so much for all of your 1031 support over the past 9 years!
I had an amazing time!
Very sincerely,
Kristian Svitak
1031 Skates 2006-2015

oh, bummer. 1031 has done cool stuff throughout the years. Wonder what will happen to some of his riders?



edit: I hope they can bring jason adams over to whatever it is, that dude needs to be sponsored no matter what.

Press releases in skateboarding read to me like listening to crazy people talk about government conspiracies.  Just something way off about them.

Mike Vallely
7. Januar

When you support Street Plant you directly support The Vallely Family.
Street Plant is a 100% family owned and operated business. My daughter Emily and I manage and oversee all aspects of the company.Our fingerprint is on every design and every single product passes through our hands on it�s way to you. When you support Street Plant you directly support The Vallely Family. We are not going through any middlemen and we are not just another brand under someone else�s umbrella, helping to sustain someone else�s overhead. We are completely independent. Street Plant seeks to encapsulate my entire career and creative output from skateboards to apparel to music to publications. What was, what is and what will be. My days as a mercenary or partnering exclusively with other companies to deliver my products or having my creative output filtered by others is over. Street Plant represents my vision, ideas and passion unfiltered. Thank you for your continued support on this journey� The best is yet to come! � Mike V http://www.streetplantbrand.com #mikevallely #streetplantbrand

sad part is he team up with his daughter - you know what that means for you future relationship mike?

If you go to elephantbrandskateboards.com it just redirects to http://www.streetplantbrand.com/

He also deleted the Elephant Instagram and FB pages so I'm assuming it's done

That's why I'll never support this dude.  He's a legend and has done some incredible skating over the last 30 years but I won't support any company he is running

You mean it's hard to rebuild a relationship after you punch your daughter/business partner?

But Mike's getting up there in age, so hopefully he's suffering from low-T, so he's just irritable than punchy.

Yeah, which is why I'd be bummed if it's gone under, I don't know if he'll pick up another board sponsor after this, hopefully he might even do his own thing, saw a six guns graphic the other day, maybe it's that

If Svitak had been paying attention to what Mike V has been up to this last year, he'd see that he was leaving yet another company he created after feeling as though he was getting screwed over (this one full of pros he supposedly hand picked and believed in) and Svitak would get that he's probably not the best guy to go into business with.  Especially when you remember that he was supposed to run a company through Svitak's personal distribution can't but folded at the last second.

Yay another skateboard brand that is hoping to capitalize on the nostalgia of old fatties like me.

is that the deal?  i saw those boards, and they clearly say Elephant Brand on them.  did vallely shitcan the website so Select would have to rebuild a site for the brand?  vallely really is a piece of work. (feel free to substitute the word "work")

Shit I didn't realise it was that time of the year for Vallely to start a new company already, seems to get earlier every year.


Jason Adams still riding for Elephant is going to be a bit awkward, could well be better for him I guess if he drives the designs etc. The weird thing  to me was I have actually seen some Elephant boards at the park so I thought they might be doing pretty well, maybe they were and that was part of the problem.

Going into to business with Vallely is the skateboarding equivalent of starting a land war in Asia, just don't.

I think these types of companies are doing well. JK Industries and Dear Skating seem to be shipping orders faster than they can fill them. I would have bought his shirt if it just said Mark & Natas & Tommy. No offense to Valley, I just think those three belong in a different category.

Wonder if Neal Hendrix is staying with the Elephant brand. Total bummer because he deserves his name on a board. East Coast legend. He put out a great vert part last year.

How recently was that berrics slappy new year edit filmed as it had the kid, vallely, Markovich and Berrard all skating together? I seem to remember someone posting something from Markovich's social media saying he was done with elephant, or did I imagine it?
