I wasn't a big fan of their logo...

It's the second most try-hard, terribly designed logo in skating for sure, pipped to the post by Wayward Wheel's strangely off design.

I'm hoping that DURAO is in a bidding war as a result of his last 3 parts...

Glad I'm not alone in thinking his filming is garbage.

donít want this to come off confrontational on you, i understand why you want it, but itís on Girl that their relationship is destroyed. they fucked guy and eric and they dipped. if it mattered to mike and rickk they would have made an effort to repair that. at this point, itís not coming

numbers management always looked like they were going nowhere, no consequence for rich guy & eric of course but i kinda feel bad for the team riders who lost time riding for a brand that didn't have anything under the hood

That aside, i  really enjoyed the videos. Super nice & chill session  style vids, i don't think i've seen this elsewhere, but doing a video that  makes the viewer feel like he's on a bench  checking out the  sesh was a really good idea and they were well filmed. Still remember Durao's (?) frontside flip over this set of stairs

I don't understand the whole "they felt like going nowhere", "it was directionless" argument. The Edition 1, Edition 2 thing was great, always with different concepts and artist, they had great collaborations with Nike, Adidas, Ron Herman, Soulland. Maybe the first 2 videos where a bit weird I could agree, but after that, the Miles Silvas Edition 3, Magnus for Edition 4 and Kyron Davis for Edition 5 were proper well edited video parts.
Saying the skaters lost their time riding for them is stupid. It was a good company and they had a good run, my only complaint with them is that their clothes were too expensive/the boards were kinda hard to find. I think Miles leaving lowered their motivation, and then Corona virus happened and they just couldn't stay afloat.

wow, thanks for that, I had never seen it this way.

Due to your numbers obsession, are you Bobby Puleo?
The '80s were the worst period. You had these horrible pop bands growing their hair and calling themselves metal.

How exactly did Girl blow it with Eric and Guy? I've never really heard an outright explanation of what happened there, it wasn't as well documented as Eric's departure from Lakai....
At least when you're a washed-out hipster douchebag in NY, you can milk it at some decent looking, hard to skate spots. In LA you're just a tan-lined faggot in a school yard somewhere.

Yeah, Eric and Guy were supposed to have stock in the brands or something like that but it was never given to them/somehow sold out from under them.

because eric and guy "were given part ownership of the brand" 15 years ago based on a fucking handshake or something. read any interview with anyone that ever left crail, its all handshakes and rainbows over there until you ask for the royalties you shook hands on or whatever.

koston should just say fuck it and ride for that south african mall shoe brand or whatever called Koston. they just use the lakai font they used to use on his shoes. that company is way sicker that girl at this point.


imagine guy on antihero just cuz idk maybe BA or whatever haha that would be sick, but most likely just some one off shit before his FA class photo board. dill needs time to find the perfect picture of young guy and alter it to be cooler. the only good one is freddys.


why in the fuck is fred gall not on hockey yet? koston can stay sponsorless the rest of time and be fine nobody will miss his dork tricks sticking his ass out. someone put freddy on one of the few companies with money have him modeling supreme hoodies and shit haha habitat is the fucking worst. dudes been skating FA boards for 3 years just put him on the team dill.

Numbers always lacked a visual direction for me, often felt like a mall-store 917

imo this was the most original thing they did

I mean most pros ride anti hero when between sponsors anyway ( some when they still have a sponsor). At least this way anti-hero/grimple can make some scratch of the in between sponsors pro guest board.
