pretty interesting. Pretty lame of them trying to control who gets coverage or not.

I do agree with trying to make skating more fun. It aint no fun trying hard ass shit all the time.
When it's so proggressive the fun does get lost. just the other day at the park I was just chilling watching
the kids skate and I noticed that kids don't cheer for anything unless it's a really good trick. I was stunned cause
these kids didn't even really know how to ollie. A little goober can skate for years before someone says "yeah" after he does a trick. Then you got people vibing kids cause they aren't that good, me vibing Nate(lol), and so on.. It's gotta be tough for kids to stick with it and not get discouraged enough to quit. On top of that, it's fucking hard as fuck to get good at.

I was a nice kid before skating but I got attitude after, got schooled by life, and am now more positive and can just laugh at the cool kids instead of the not so cool kids.

what's the point? I think it said 94.

The more i read about this iasc crap the more I don't like them. Not sure if this Iasc  is backed by those same guys who basically tried to control skating then.

Truth is, it's business. There's really no one to blame but the corpo heads. So instead of divising a way to get you the buyer to be stoked on pro boards again they try to make the buyer feel guilty? You know, maybe I would have been an advocate for this but I'll hold my breath till some real solutions get worked out.

Hey NB, Amazing Shit, really.

You are a hero with some Brass ones for posting your site and being straight to the point. 

Would like to talk off camera some day and see where it leads, as we may have some insight. 

I responded thru your site.

If a Paypal address is set up, and we can raise funds for this website to be advertised in a magazine, even if it's just one, I'm sure this is a sure fire "first step".



Seriously. People pay that smashmyipod.com kid enough cash. I'm we could raise enough for this in Transworld.

A quick update: it looks like the site is getting passed around across the net quite a bit... it's had several hundred hits since the launch yesterday... I'll make sure to post more if this thing snowballs.
Props to everybody here (on both sides of the argument). The debates here are about 50% of the reason why I put it up. The other 50% was the IASC itself.

BEHOLD THE POWER OF SLAP

Update: among other people that were down with being associated with the site, I got a response from Old Man Army (which means a lot to me on a personal level), as well as True Love Collective... which I think is awesome as all fuck. The site's really making some rounds now... I'm 99% stoked and 1% anxious at this point. Thanks for your help everybody.

sick hopefully it will be brought up somehow next time he's in the shop causing the owners to get off the iasc's nuts. in the other topic someone mentioned people at heroin and all the other small companies weren't stoked about blanks like the iasc is so i asked fos about the blank issue and he isn't stoked about blanks but he isn't going crazy like the iasc which is perfectly fine. hopefully everyone will learn from their mistakes and learn to shut up at a good time before things go buckwild

off topic but oh man grim where is that dylan press kid from that is mentioned on the friends page?
we had a sponsor me video from him/a different dylan press and it was so funny. he had a lightning bolt come down and strike a board and it looked so cheasy

back on the subject: i wonder how long its going to be when you can receive the same amount of relevant results on google when you replace a world without pros to a world without ceos. i bet everyone at the iasc is in their office either kicking themselves in the ass or throwing darts at the picture of you trying to think how they can seem more "core" and make us look like the enemies

Damn, grim, that is awesome!

Thanks. That kind of site needed to get made.

You are one of my internet heros!

Not a clue man! He just hit me up and asked to be added.
