post ur favorite Natural Koncept stuff in this thread
« on: January 28, 2021, 08:56:56 PM »


the skateboard world has seen a lot of big companies rise and fall over the years. element, plan b, powell etc. only one company has stood rock solid over time  as a pillar of our sport: Natural Koncept. they always have the sickest teams (just take a gander at that household name up there), the coolest perma fried Korn album art graphics (and name), and the ability to run ads in TWS for 20 years without ever selling a single product.

go ahead and post up all your favorite NK stuff here. i expect this to be a really long thread.
with that being said. cky enthusiast you seem like the worst dude with a very low attention span, i mean you never have watched a skate video in its entirley, why dont you just shut the fuck up if you never have to say anyt

The first time I heard of Natural Koncept was when I was hanging out watching a videos at this house a bunch of my friends were living at in maybe 2014 or 2015 in the winter. They put on on of the videos and I can remember the video made me feel bad. I don't remember what about the video or the video itself at all really, I just remember it sort of made me sad. I remember just leaving after and walking back to the where I was living at the time and just going right to my room and just sitting in bed after. I'm pretty sensitive though.

Fuck, I just realized the USPS actually lost my Natural Koncept video. I don't even know how I ended up owning one of their VHS tapes... but its gone now.

The first time I heard of Natural Koncept was when I watched this video of a nearby skatepark. Before I knew anything about trick selection, I still knew something about the way these guys skated was just a bit... off...

Caz.....

Does any remember/have a scan of when Big Brother interviewed Caz but didn't tell them they were from Big Brother because he was looking for them and wanted to fight them? Was it another NK rider and am I just fried? am I completely misremembering how this went down?

been fuckin with natty konch since i was a kid, dont even know how but in 2002 i ended up with one of thier promos. then illegitimate bastard child came out, that shit was so funny to us as kids just because of how goofy all these dudes were.

plus if you lived in NY 2005-2011 theres no way you didnt run into the guy that runs natty konch, JZ, at spots, two brothers, enids, the fish, that dude was everywhere just being as fried as possible. nice guy just fried out of his mind, beyond repair. he did a gap to grind on someones porch in the cut in hawaii though, and im still not sure how he did it.

Natty Kon is the real Baker.

Illegitimate Bastard Child is one of the greatest skate videos of all time and I'm not being facetious.

Darryl "Heyhead" Freeman's part is maybe the best part under one minute of all time.

That's probably where you would of only seen their product back in the day. If you love hella weed, hemp necklaces, and headshops this would of been your brand back in the 90's. Bizarre one to dredge up that's for sure.

Illegitimate Bastard Child was a fun video. Katch 1 is a sick painter and their art was fresh.
If nothing else the dudes/company weren't clones and having fun.

I do wonder what the company was a front for though.

I work with someone who is/was friends with Larry Schuster, someone he claims who is/was pro for Natural Koncept. Thatís all.

idk what it was, but bobby worrest did some video interview im guessing chromeball, speaking on that 21 stair in DC he tried to ollie. mentions how he was one upped by a natty konch kid who goes by the name Boner.

"kid beat me to it, hes got some fucked up name too...i think his name is Penis." before they corrected him about it being boney. classic bobby shit right there

A friend of mine who rode for them for years just uploaded (poorly) a bunch of photos from 2000-2001 to facebook and there were a few from the tour I went on with the Canadian riders down to ASR in San Diego one of those years. I have no clue where the first picture was taken, but that's our friend and the guy who was repping the brand in Canada at the time, Jay Wainwright on the left, next to Jeff Logan, then Aaron Sheare (he's the one who posted the pics), then me, then Craig Williams. Lying on us is Ryan Hamilton who was the photographer for the trip and room mate of Craig and Aaron's. I can't remember if Aaron had a pro board but Craig and Jeff did. I was there to film. It was a wild trip.



The second photo is of the whole crew from Natural Koncepts at Ruth's Chris steakhouse in San Diego. The guy sitting right in front of me was one of the co-owners but I think they had a falling out sometime later on. The incredibly poor quality of these photos is on brand with NK media output so I think it's fitting.



I think it's hilarious this is a thread. Definitely never would have thought Watson would fuck with the Natty Konch.  ;D

Dude I love me some raw ass weirdo shit. Natty Kon fits right in there. It's like Gummo or Memory Screen but from the other side of the lens.

Also funny you should bring this all up. Craig Williams is my homie through working with Ultimate, and Aaron Shear has two tricks in Illegitimate Bastard Child from my home town Saskatoon. Kickflip frontside noselide at a demo at a hockey rink park I worked at, and back tail on a long out ledge off a five stair. That's a legendary trick to go down on that thing and I'm so hyped it's in that video.
