Nice to see him of Element.

Seems like Element is losing alot of it's riders lately. I wonder what's going on behind the scenes over there.

Clearing salary cap to give to Nyjah. With him being the contest person and in the new THPS, they're most def gonna want to make him as big as a marketing gimmick as Bam.

That or brand is too big and lost itís family feel and everyone is more distant. Kinda why Daewon left DVS type of situation.

That being said, Barbee on Krooked feels right. It warms my heart that he still has a place in skateboarding all these years later.

Ray is such a perfect fit for krooked. Tangentially related, Element has to just be on the verge of going under right?

that implies they haven't already given him the bulk of the budget, and haven't pushed him HEAVILY

I heard a while ago that the corporation that owns them (Billabong?) has been pressuring them to get away from the hardgoods game, probably cuz of the margins and I don't think any shops really buy much Element anymore. I think Shcillereff has been pushing for them to keep hardgoods but he has no actual ownership anymore he's just an employeee and that he'll probably be gone if they do that. They're just gonna do a limited skate program as almost a novelty cuz thats their roots and they have Nyjah, maybe keep 2 other people and try to sell a lot of t shirts and overpriced pants.

Is that a demotion or promotion... feels like pros get more boards printed?
