We shall see. It would be interesting to see if companies like New Balance come in and take some of these guys in.
You ever hear those stories about the Titanic, when a bunch of survivors would all swim to a lifeboat, swarm it and eventually capsize it? Then the people in that boat would try to swim over to the next closest one and do the same thing? Neat.

Nike sucks. Their blazers suck now. I've tried the GT blazers and the blazer low in the past year and they last me about one and  half weeks. Sucks for Yoshi but honestly getting free nikes for half your life isn't something to complain about.

blazer mid's are the truth.

seems more like nike is on the other end of the business which is taking every single a list rider they can get one by one. last few riders they got were guy and ninejah. i can see them maybe cutting off some dudes that aren't a list (in their eyes) being such as chet or somebody but take a look at the team page and you'll realize that 90% of those dudes aren't getting dropped.

edit : just looked at team page and couldn't find chet... wow maybe i'm out of the loop

He always has a smile on his face so he's gotta be making 6 figures

From a business perspective, I think this makes sense, I don't think many people are buying a shoe because Yoshi is wearing it. They're kinda doing what element is doing - sponsoring nyjah to sell boards to the masses, while sponsoring Dennis Durrant to appeal people who actually care about skateboarding.


(Wouldn't be surprised if Yoshi was in the Olympics though he is incredibly talented)

watching tampa am this year i remember they introduced yoshi as being from israel and then they were kinda joking about how he was claiming it hard. olympics power move if it works for him.
if thats the case i insist he should be called by his real hebrew name, Yossi.

Yossi the famous, but trouble skater of the  illustrious the Mohel Tanenbaums (as documented by Wes Bank Anderson).    Lost his Nike sponsorship and went into the bathroom playing Elliot Smith loudly

Byeeeee!

That's a shame I feel like TJ Rogers should be forced to pay for his shoes.

Andrew Allen is a living legend and must be protected.

that would go well with this Blind Tensor and Bones sponsorship... although i must admit on an objective level hes fucking amazing at playing skateboards and probably should be getting way more shine.

Spoke with Chet around mid summer and he mentioned that Nike did not renew his contract. Confirmed.

Doesnít matter, he obviously canít be marketed. Itís the same with a lot of those dwindle dudes. Look at Enzo, on tv and everything still flow. Also can some fill me on in dudes sig where it says Iíll just skate for blind? Did that actually happen?
