ok i guess you're right.  i'd probably be laughing my ass off if i was at a skatepark minding my own business when some c list skater/actor/rapper came over to me out of the blue, focused my board that I had broken in and gotten used to, and handed me some trash square ass FA log with no grip and no tools to change it out. 

hilarious.  you're right i need to lighten up

also, great role model for kids!  it totally wouldn't lead to kids that look up to me thinking shit like that was ok and then start jacking kids boards as a "hilarious joke"

If you want good role models don't show your kids skateboarders, I don't know what else to tell you. So sick of this tired argument.

You guys only pull this one out when it's a black kid behaving in a way you don't like but get real defensive when sexual assault allegations come out

I don't like Nakel either but get over yourself lol

I'm relatively new to the LA area.  When I went into Kingswell (before I lived here), I was welcomed immediately by DJ, and have had great experiences every time.  The one time I went in to Lottie's to check it out and buy some stuff to support the shop, Mike Lottie came out from the back, checked me out, decided I wasn't cool enough, and went back into the back to continue modifying a Baker logo deck with a sharpie.  I'm not a "fuck Lottie's" guy, but I definitely got cool guy-ed out of there. Never went back.

I love generalizations like that.
like in no story ever on planet earth history any skate shop owner could have done something or said something that pissed of anyone so much that they said fuck that skate shop.

you sir are stupid as shit.
and I swear thats how nazis got created. with some zero braincell people generalizing and being to overly brotherly loyal.

you think he’s focusing random kids that he doesn’t know boards? Bruh you’re out of touch. It’s an obvious joke between him and his homies. You’re reaching.
[close]

Long time lurker, first time poster, stoner park regular. Nak was 100% focusing completely random strangers boards. Not only his homies. He was focusing dudes he 100% does not know. This is factual.

I can back that up too. I talked to people at Stoner the day he came through and focused random people's boards. That is a fact for sure. I know one person (a Stoner regular) had just set up a new board that day and Nak took it and focused it against his wishes.
i have nothing to fear but jesse himself.

Damn 12 pages in a few days, definitely made my monday a bit more fun. too many things to comment on but some of you are a dumpster fire which is just great reading.

A few things here fellas:
- the guy who called the kids at the park "a few bad apples" probably as "acab" in his twitter bio
- those clips of ishod at babylon were cool, looks like a good time but also babylon seems very different from lotties in terms of products, costumers etc. so I doubt its the jealousy fest that someone said they overhead or whatever
- I feel like we're sort of watching this dude's career implode in slow motion, feels like he left supreme rather than the other way around based on how they'll give product to what seems like anyone, he's obviously outspoken so how long until he shits on someone at adidas, or dill or ave, or whoever and then it's fade into obscurity as just another guy from mikey alfred's mid 90's

Why does it matter if he did? It’s a dick move regardless.  Skaters are the biggest piles and social media is just a sounding board for all that nonsense.

dude if you got cool guyed at lotties i dont know what to tell you. maybe you should try not being a socially awkward kook next time you go and maybe you could get some bro points with the locals. it was my first time ever there and i even got to pet mike's dog lmao

while cool-guying is a real phenomenon, studies show that 83% of all cool-guying incidents can be attributed to the cool-guyee being an awkward weirdo

I can attest to that with my friend going to no comply. He was convinced he got cool guyed because the staff said little else above let me know if you need help. My friend expected to be chit chatted even tho he himself is quiet as shit. Another friend also said he doesn't go there cause he gets cool guyed. I ask him how and he just shrugged and vaguely said "they think theyre the shit"

90 percent of the time its in your head.

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.

Closer to 95%. And if it does really happen, it's usually because one dude is a dick. Go there on a different day and everything's cool!

Edit: it's easy to feel "excluded" in shops you're not always hangin out in, too. Not the staff's fault if they don't know ya. I think this leads to a lot of people feeling "cool guy'ed."

I got cool guy'ed at my local while I was wearing this. I wonder what the heck I did wrong?!

Just go to Kingswell. DJ is super cool to everyone. And they’ve supported the locals.

The LA skateboard scene in general can be pretty shitty, especially when you get up in the “celebrity” skaters realm.
Los Angeles, professional skateboarding and Hollywood all have a problem with self inflating egotism and entitlement by themselves, and when you combine them it’s a perfect shit hurricane of terrible behavior.

Or, go buy a 10 year old warped Chocolate deck from LA Dave and call it a day.

What's good with Tom? I remember a friend of mine telling me about a great time meeting him out skating and having a great conversation with him.

Some tour article in Thrasher a while back was basically talking about what a rude, petulant unpleasant guy he was on tour and tried to soften it at the end by saying “he lives in his own world”.  That’s why I put maybe.   It’s not a rampant rep like the other two, just one article that really stood out to me because the writer so badly wanted to call him out but couldn’t explicitly

Just go to Kingswell. DJ is super cool to everyone. And they’ve supported the locals.

The LA skateboard scene in general can be pretty shitty, especially when you get up in the “celebrity” skaters realm.
Los Angeles, professional skateboarding and Hollywood all have a problem with self inflating egotism and entitlement by themselves, and when you combine them it’s a perfect shit hurricane of terrible behavior.

Or, go buy a 10 year old warped Chocolate deck from LA Dave and call it a day.
This dude knows what's up, I honestly just want to shout out Kingswell.
I had TOO good of an experience last time, dude working (Not DJ or Melcher, sorry dude I don't know your name) even reminded me to feed my meter because I was trying on a pair of shoes and taking a minute.
DJ has been rad every time and always stops to talk some shop and Melcher is from near where I grew up.
It's hard to find a skater's skate shop in Los Angeles, surprisingly.
