That was really well done instead of just saying fuck those dudes, it went into way more detail. I don't know if I'll ever be comfortable with skateboarding youtube stars but I don't think it'll ever die. Still not sure if it'll eventually take over skating since I know some young dude that think those guys are stupid but it's totally possible.

EDIT: I just thought of slap in the future and people sharing the latest Andy Shyrock video, man that'd be horrible.
Any dude that hates on roller hockey hasn't played, and likely haven't played a sport in their entire life.

There are some similarities with the emergence of the more kid-friendly Transworld magazine in the 80s (which was founded as a response to Thrasher's semi-pornographic Indy ad with an underaged girl). On the other hand, staffers GSD, Blender, Mountain, JGB, and Dave Carson gave TWS enough credibility.

If these YouTube stars are disrupters, they must have done so unwittingly, at least initially. In more ways, their success is due to mainstream pros failing to see the potential in YouTube. It must also be fairly laborious.

At least they don't just call us "the messageboards" or "the internet" anymore like we're Voldemort.

the only thing I don't like about those guys is that they're making kids think it's ok to constantly be filming yourself and putting it online. it's breeding a culture of narcissism that's so prevalent in the rest of social media and bringing it to skateboarding

too much

Any of these youtube stars killing it on iTunes? Maybe it's more profitable to sell videos on iTunes then to get youtube views and subscribers. Thrasher and Ride Channel both have more subscribers than those kids... http://vidstatsx.com/youtube-top-100-most-subscribed-sports-channels

Awesome read. I wish there was some talk on Nigel though. I think he's my least favorite out of all. I think people like Andy know he's somewhat kooky, but he's able to make a living off it so that outweighs the negatives for him. I think Nigel truly believes he's awesome and relevant to "core" skaters or whatever the fuck that means.

I'm always stoked to see skateboarding, and fuck the established skate culture that sold out anyways.

you got it twisted. Helmet dude actually has well thought out opinions. Blackninja just films himself drinking alone by himself saying shit like "every walmart should be burnt to the ground along with everyone inside."

Andy Schrock - Skate videos are meh. I don't really watch him.
Josh Katz - Can't get past that helmet and that "goody good boy" vibe. Kinda bothers me with how polite he is.
Black Ninja - He's watchable, puts out some good content sometimes.
Majer - I actually really like Majer lol. I don't watch their vlogs and shit, but their park full lengths that they put out are gnarly
Shit could be worse

Thank you jenkem for reminding me to watch that BlackNinja part again. Genius.
Now, we used to say we put on our tights to put on the world. So I don't think it tarnishes the image at all.

Never heard of these guys which is fairly surprising because I once watched 30 seconds of a chris chan unboxing making me an expert in crappy youtube skating content.

The only youtubers i watch is the one's that play video games (yeah im that big of loser)

Haha truthfully I find that sort of stuff weirdly relaxing. It makes excellent background noise when doing work at the computer.

The article is good.  I think what it doesn't mention though is that these youtube pros like Andy Shrock are preying upon the weakest link in the skateboarding chain, children who have just started to skate: this act of taking money from people who know no better is a con!  The youtube pros are sheerly practicing con artistry and it sucks to watch the skateboard industry be conned, whether it's on a mass corporate scale like Nike or an individual like the aforementioned kooks.
