and some other canadians.
No. The skateboard industry should have learned its lesson from guys like Paul Machnau, Alex Chalmers, Micky Papa, and a long list of others...nobody gives a shit about Canadians no matter how talented they are.

I feel like there's two types of Canadian skaters. The ones who end up in digital videos and on the blind team, and the ones who move away from Canada and are able to have a successful skateboard career.

I wish Russ Milligan didn't blow his load early on with a digital part, he could have had something when he got on City/Think but was relegated to the Canadian DVS team shoe wise.

Edit: exception to this rule is Bobby Dekeyzer somehow. McCrank moved to California and started a great career but then moved back to Canada and hasn't had a shoe sponsor since the first downfall of Es. That's not a coincidence.

There are tons of examples of canadian that made it.
What I think Reagan was meaning, is that being canadian is an obstacle to make a great career.
For example, do you think Kevin Terpening or Cooper Wilt would have been pro if they were canadian, while Russ Milligan, Ted Degros and so many other super talented canadian skateboarders struggled?

why, Why, WHY DSM WOOD FOR EUROPE?

cause it's good and that's what we have in place. have you ridden a zero board from DSM? it's all myself and the team ride & we love them.

I'm bummed we won't have DSM wood  stateside =( I love the wood. I'm in the minority here. I like NHS/DSM wood and hate PS stix (it's heavy and soggy to me). BBS? Generator?

What about Prime/watson/churchill/chapman/pennswoood? Plenty of US options...that would be rad.

Can we get some more Zero P2s now? :P

You shouldn't give Gipper's statement your own interpretation of context (right or wrong), as you are dampening the entertainment value of his follow up.

Not hating on you Gipp, but you are an overt human ball of hypocrisy. As long as you realize it it's ok.

I can't think of a single Canadian who has made an impact on skateboarding. Not one, not a single Canadian in all of skateboarding. They're all no-names and losers with big shirts and phat Circas.

How am I hypocritical? I'm not Canadian.

Yes, Wade Desarmo is Canadian, which actually helps my point, as does the mention of people like Dan Pageau. Great skaters, but most people just don't give a shit.
I agree that its ridiculous to write off an entire nation, unless that nation is Canada.

Lee Yankou is from Canada.
You almost have a point there- Yankou, like others I mentioned, is amazing, but he's been relegated to virtual no-name status because he's Canadian. When he was an impostor American living in SF, he was starting to blow up, but then La Migra kicked his ass out, and BOOM! he got all Canadian again, and people stopped caring aside from the once a year when Canada is cool: The Dime Glory Challenge.

You criticize those of whom paint with a broad brush, and make generalizations. Then proceed to do that very same thing yourself.

I don't personally care either way, but I do find it kind of funny given your history.
