Nine Club getting clowned in the youtube comment section of this clip:

they kind of contradict themselves.  They say that it's annoying and you should let the pros have the show, but they recognized that a lot of shop kids want to get put on and it's okay too

It's been said a zillion times across a zillion threads but why does anybody even want the nine club to get into controversial shit or have hard opinions? It's not what the show is. It's just light skateboard themed chat for about a  15 year olds intelligence level. (Which isn't even always a bad thing)
[close]

I get what you're saying. My beef is how selective they are regarding the controversies they decide to discuss. For instance, remember how fired up Roger got about how filmers should be paid? I would argue that was a controversial topic and I have mad respect for Roger holding his ground on it.

Still cant believe Eldy tried to say its for the passion though

Imagine filming someone for hours, and seeing them taken care of while you are expected to just get product or something
[close]

If the skateboarding youíre being filmed doing holds weight then itís partially your responsibility to make sure that your filmer is being compensated fairly and well. At least thatís how I felt during the time I had any sort of relevance.. Kurt hayashi filmed the majority of what I did that was used, I made sure that he got taken care of for it, that was probably the one and only reasons I couldíve justified dropping ďATMĒ for ďSanta CruzĒ ATM did kurt dirty on footage they used of me, that was unacceptable.. plus, kurt was family, plus he wasted plenty of time and money filming with me before my footage was usable in any sort of video that mattered..
[close]
random and off topic but, just rewatched Ďsaneí for the first time in nearly 15 years when it popped up in my Ďsuggested videosí on youtube. are you the first person to nollie flip front board a handrail? seems highly likely. also, being that you had a clip in his firm part, can you give any sort of update on where matt beach is now or what heís doing? dude was one of my favorites & then just sort of vanished. did you realize your name is spelled wrong in his Ďthanksí section?

I actually had that video on DVD and used to watch it religiously. Up until that point, I do not recall seeing anyone nollie flip front board on a handrail, especially not to fakie. Would also love to hear an update on Matt Beach

Their responses are confusing. It sounds like things only worked out for Jereme Rogers because he was persistent and kept a low profile.

Traveled to every spot on the tour, so technically not a hometown hero at the rest of the spots he had to travel to

I know they would never come out and say this, but I have a feeling that they wanted to complain about the guy who barges the demo who, frankly, probably shouldn't. Like how all over the country there's the demo phenomenon of the "360 boneless" guy just going ham while people are trying to watch the pros.

i dont go to skateparks a lot but when I did there was usually 1 kid there who just has to show everyone who he is, and lol..typically the bowl flyout 360 was included.  I've only been to an addidas demo and it was Kwatson with the maxallure guys, and suicu (who obviously was killing)

lol @ the end when he says that the best advice he's been given for demos is to "not do anything first try".


Keep your cards close to your chest there, Chris.
[close]

he eventually parlayed that into not doing anything

I hear he once did a switch-flip manual at the courthouse.

Also, lol at the brain trust thinking the word guano originated from Ace Ventura.

I can't watch another minute of these idiots. I hate every single thing about Chris Roberts. His face, voice, personality, skateboarding. Stop existing, please.

Man I love that Dub is the only one who keeps it a buck

Lol. Eldee is definitely a human. Heís like a raider on horse back whoís kinda scared to do battle. Somehow he closes his eyes and swings his sword wildly and wakes up in a pile of dead orcs.

Mattís return to skateboarding kind of fucked him up.. heís always been pretty introverted, so pro skateboarding was always pretty awkward for him when it came to the social aspect.. I know that for awhile he was living in a tent in forest park, heís got some pretty serious mental problems, but I really donít mean to say that negatively because heís been one of my best friends since I was 12 years old and itís been sad, frustrating, worrisome and a lot of other negative emotions towards him at times, I was bummed that he didnít show up to Kurtís funeral but I get it, heís genuinely such a good dude and heís like a brother to me. So itís definitely confusing but overall heís an amazing person, itís just unfortunate that he definitely has some serious mental problems that I wish he could find the right help for. So yeah, I donít think he is doing too good right now, but heíll find his way again sooner or later, he has in the past and I truly believe he will again. At the moment I think heís living at his parents and he wonít talk to anyone, Iíve tried to contact him a few times in the past 5 years, talked to him twice and thatís it, havenít been able to get in touch with him any of the other times that Iíve tried to.. I donít know if anyone had done a nollie flip front board on a handrail before the one I did, but I do know that I went at that trick with absolutely no grace or elegance, I basically just nollie flipped towards the handrail and let gravity do the rest! Haha!

I don't think people expect an endlessly hard hitting expose from every Nine Club, but a tiny bit of research and some effort to be a decent interviewer would be a good start. It's incredible how long they've been doing and how bad they all still are at it.

What bums me out the most about it is they obviously have the resources, they have the access, they have the audience but then they act like 90's Transworld the second anything touchy comes up. It just seems like such a waste to have these legends sit down and talk and then they just squib it because they're lazy Cali bros who really don't give a fuck about helping people tell their stories, they just want to stay Peter Pan's in the skate industry.

Could you imagine what Chromeball could do with some of the guests Nine Club has had?

I don't hate Nine Club, I'm just disappointed in them.

The Experience show was better when they didn't do it live and they were in the chat when the episode aired. They also did away with choosing raffle winners out of the bucket at the end of the show so there is almost no interaction with the "community" anymore.

In trying to make the show better they actually made it worse.

Honestly the experience was better when they charged for it. Those first ten episodes were cool, you never knew what was going to happen or who they would FaceTime. Now its so formulaic it's pretty unbearable

I completely checked out of nine club after having that fucking Gary V turd or whatever his name is on the show.
I don't hate any of them individually (except maybe Eldy), I still love J-Dub, I honestly believe they're just a bunch of oblivious man-children who never really had to engage with the real world and they're just so disconnected from reality...

damn, thatís really terrible to hear. i saw some stuff on here a while back about him possibly having being on meth and that being why he seemingly disappeared from skateboarding. i donít know if that ties into it all or not, if so i just hope that he can eventually find some peace from his battles & be happy, whether that mean skateboarding or not. he is truly gifted on a skateboard, i imagine heís naturally talented in a lot of areas. also, you had control & it looked sick so donít discredit it. thanks for getting back to me about those, i hope youíre doing well.

That's crazy about Matt, really sorry to hear about his struggles and I hope we gets what he needs; special talent.

The nollie flip front board was rad too, way ahead of the rest of the game. Did you ever try to get that switch bigflip at Bricktown again? That was mind-blowing that you even landed on it.

So yeah, I donít think he is doing too good right now, but heíll find his way again sooner or later, he has in the past and I truly believe he will again. At the moment I think heís living at his parents and he wonít talk to anyone, Iíve tried to contact him a few times in the past 5 years, talked to him twice and thatís it, havenít been able to get in touch with him any of the other times that Iíve tried to.. I donít know if anyone had done a nollie flip front board on a handrail before the one I did, but I do know that I went at that trick with absolutely no grace or elegance, I basically just nollie flipped towards the handrail and let gravity do the rest! Haha!

damn, thatís really terrible to hear. i saw some stuff on here a while back about him possibly having being on meth and that being why he seemingly disappeared from skateboarding. i donít know if that ties into it all or not, if so i just hope that he can eventually find some peace from his battles & be happy, whether that mean skateboarding or not. he is truly gifted on a skateboard, i imagine heís naturally talented in a lot of areas. also, you had control & it looked sick so donít discredit it. thanks for getting back to me about those, i hope youíre doing well.

That's crazy about Matt, really sorry to hear about his struggles and I hope we gets what he needs; special talent.

The nollie flip front board was rad too, way ahead of the rest of the game. Did you ever try to get that switch bigflip at Bricktown again? That was mind-blowing that you even landed on it.


Especially at the time. Bummer to hear about Matt Beach. Was always a big fan of his
