Rob Welsh has been killing for a minute now. His style is smooooth and lanky and major POP. He can practically do any flip in flip out shit you can think of and more. This guy has been overdue for a shoe and deserves one more then any pro out there.  I'm def. excited to see what he can come up with in the Lakai flick.

Let the appreciation begin....

lets be realistic....................

yes lets be realistic and say that 1)you dont have a fucking clue and 2)yes, he is long overdue for a shoe.

Rob Welsh definitely deserves an appreciation thread. I have high hopes for his footage in Fully Flared, but Welsh can do no wrong.

48 Blocks: What were the factors in your decision to move from SF to AZ?

Rob: I just got burnt, you know...I was here for over a decade. It started slow, but the City just isn't what it was. I love this city, it's great...but when Embarcadero got taken out, one of the major reasons I moved here was mangled. Then the next thing was Union Square, Black Rock, and Brown Marble....then the Pier, then me, then everything. It just sucked...I couldn't get motivated. I just started going on trips...skate trips. With my knee, I took a whole year off; I was like "I don't ever wanna have to deal with this again." I didn't even touch a board for a whole year. About three months down the line, my buddy dies. It was just vicious, then five months down the line you're so board that you hit the bottle. I always had skating in mind, then I started going on trips with Lakai...just trying to get back on the horse. When I did start skating again the only option was to go down to the Island. We'd skate from our house and have great time, bomb a couple hills, make our way down to Market street, hit a little spot and skate it for a second; then you'd get to the Island and play all your friends in skate then it's like, "what do I do now?" Then you're trying to not drink cause you gotta film and it's 5:30 and you're like, "hmmmnn lets go get pizza." So my life became like Groundhog's Day, it was like bad news. So I went on the trip to Arizona and thought "damn, these parks are sick" and I met a girl...I really started getting excited again. It was a nice little change. I'm not saying I'm never gonna live here again, I love this city but for right now Arizona is probably the best thing for me. I did one summer and I'll probably do another one, we'll see.

Haven't watched any games this year. The Jays and Twins(2 headed monster) mainly. I like underdog teams. I loved the Twins last
year cause Liriano shut everyone down. I think had he not got injured near the end of the season he would have easily been your cy young winner,
but his teammate(Santana) easily deserved it as well. I think if the Twins fill in a few gaps they'll be unstopable simply cause there 1-2
will be the most feared in the playoffs. I mean who really wants to see the Twins for game 1 and 2 if you gotta face Santana and Liriano?
Best pitchers in baseball period. I'd like to be a Giants fan but I'm just waiting for the "cheater" to leave so they can afford some more
players. Dude's ego is bigger than the planet and they cater way to much to him. People blamed Kent for what happened between him
and Bonds but has any other star coexisted with Barry in recent years?Btw, he did not get along with AJ either. He can sell tickets but
sure aint helping em in the post.


Man im psyched youre a Twins fan.  On wednesdays its student night and upper deck tickets are $3 with dollar dogs, always a good time. Mauer and Morneau are just solid ass hitters.  Its scary watching Liriano and Santana pitch, they throw the nastiest stuff.  Hopefully they will win the division again in that good old underdog fashion but this time go the distance in the play offs.  Its been a long time since 91.


And Welsh rules, sweat pants do belong in skateboarding.
Sorry, sometimes I get overly defensive on that point.

But a name rarely moves a shoe.

Really?... Companies have been made with names... Circa - Muska,  Kareem - Axion,  Supra - Penny... Actually Lakai is pretty nuts with Koston right now... 3 shoes! Makes perfect sense though... I guess maybe it is "rare" considering how many signature shoes there are... 40 - 60 - 80? not a huge number... but I remember Kostons and Pennys flying off the shelves back in the hay day.

Welsh is a pimp among men. Played 4-5-6 against him twice. First time I made like, $25 off him. Second time I walk into the bar, before long he sticks me with an index finger in the chest and is like, "You!" Play dice, I'm down $50, he's drank like, 13 beers.

This is just fucking golden. He didn't need to pop out of that but that's what makes it what it is. I like how his footage looks like he's riding such a small board, dude must be taller than everyone else on a skateboard.
He also smokes cigs while doing physio on his knee.
I'm going to argue that Placebo owes their entire career to a Canadian dude's skate video part. Appleyard should be getting royalties for this shit.
