Ray Barbee is such a positive influence on skateboarding that even this thread is nothing but positivity.

Looking forward to buying Rayís board, I donít give a shit what size.

Iím willing to deal with the kook-ing. But Rayís smile is contagious. Heís precious and deserves the best.

Every time I get bummed on whatever trendy garbage is going on in skateboarding, I always go back to Ray's 'Ban This' part to cleanse my palate. It's always been in my top 5 videos that get me hyped to skate. It's the purest display of the simple joy of skateboarding.

Fun fact: if you start playing New Orderís Dreams Never End after the second time he says ďsix years agoĒ it syncs up perfectly (in my opinion). Obviously you gotta mute the part but if youíre into New Order Iíd say itís an improvement.

just funny the song kicks in right after the;
'Yo man you've been skateboarding, how long you've been skateboarding for?' 'Feel like two years shit.'
instead of your (Barbees) 'six years ago'

This is awesome. Speaking of jumping from Element to Krooked whatís up with Jarne? He would be such a sick addition. Wasnít he skating Krooked boards and tagging them on Instagram or something?

Ray is such a perfect fit for krooked. Tangentially related, Element has to just be on the verge of going under right?
In Mason Silvaís Bunt interview he talks about a lot of them jumping ship from Element and that he found out 1% of their sales is from boards and the other 99% is t-shirts and other accessories. If anything, maybe they would just stop making boards but keep raking in that mall shop dough.

So many kids (and adult man-children) wear element tshirts in this very particular way that it's pretty obvious that their mother (or wife (or mother)) bought them for them because it's an inoffensive graphic and brand name that could be anything. I'd guess this makes up most of their sales; completely passive customers.

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

Schileriff just started a new company to essentially sell Bam boards called The Heart Supply. We got sent the catalog and it was just like 12 different colors of Heartagram completes. Also they had a photo of Steve Cab in the catalog, so idk what's going on.

Curious what woodshop he uses for those drops? On the site I'm pretty sure it said "Made in USA"

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 wasnt kicked off Element, he refused to renew for a good amount of $$ a month. He had to "work" for it tho, and I guess he didnt like that.

I've been checking online for Barbee krooked decks every day since this news. Now, resisting skating it and putting it up on the wall will be the real challenge.

I wish I didn't have to look at your sig in every thread tbh. That shit is annoying and usually so are your posts.

This is good! Think they've been kinda mates for a long time.
One of my most treasured memories is having Ray and Gonz turn up at the shell center in London in the early 90s while I was skating there with my mates. Just ridiculous, seeing them tear the place up. Even had the Gonz cruise past saying "what the fuck was that?"  when I did my weird half nollie pressureflip thing😁

Did anyone else know Ray isn't his real first name? His first name is Vernell. This is all news to me.
