Chick tells you dinner will be ready when you get home from work.
Walk into kitchen and smell the salmon cooking.
Then you realize the salmon is skin side up.

Don't know much about dude--I remember there have been some examples of him being a kooky jock here and there over the years--but what I can say is that at a Birdhouse demo at my local park circa 2013, he landed some genuinely psycho shit that astonished me in a way I don't think I've experienced before or since.

I don't understand how you don't know anything about Clive when he's arguably being doing the most death defying skateboarding stunts outside of maybe Milton Martinez. He's a perennial SOTY candidate.

I don't know much about him personality-wise, which I assume is the determining reason as to why he never had a top-flight list of sponsors. I'm well-aware how gnarly he is on a skateboard.

Never forget that he wore a brown belt with black shoes. What an asshole.
Now, we used to say we put on our tights to put on the world. So I don't think it tarnishes the image at all.

Toy would be rad. Foundation would fit a little better though.

Pretty surprising. Can't really imagine him moving to a brand that wouldn't be a lateral move or a downgrade. Think Clive gets a lot of unwarranted hate, all the interviews he seems like a nice dude. His career would probably look a lot different if he didn't come up through Clint Walker and Birdhouse

Iíve spent way too much time coming up with theories about his hair.  It just always looks weird to me, no matter the circumstances.  It even looks weird when heís bald, somehow.  I donít think he has any confidence walking in to the barber shop/salon.  No idea what to ask for.  I know what this feels like because I have it too.
I kinda have this too. He just has shitty white guy hair. It's not thinning or a weird hairline or anything actually bad there's just nothing you can do with it that looks particularly good.
Also while toy machine historically is cooler than birdhouse I feel like they pay less these days. Do his boards even sell well? Maybe he just got let go but in a nice way.

just have to jump in and say that iíve met him a few times at parks and heís honestly such a good dude. like, my judgmental self was fully prepared to not like him but he was so nice & went out of his way to have a genuine convo with all the kids there, not in a corny way either. will forever be a fan.

I like Clive personally, his recent parts have been insane.

Wonder if he left or was gently pushed? If he left of his own accord I wonder if he has something planned for his next move? A Birdhouse sponsor seems like a safe bet to stick with in terms of getting a cheque.

There's no way he was gently pushed, he puts out more shit than the rest of that team combined

Hope he lands somewhere decent, I think he deserves it and I want to continue seeing him do death-defying stuff. But yeah it's hard to see where he would fit. Santa Cruz would at least pay him.

Future skate generations will judge us for not making Clive SKATER OF THE YEAR before he noseblunted staples center.

May god help us...

Career wise this prob best option. Would be stoked. He deserves more than he has. Dude is gnarly.

Edit. Maybe creature?

I feel like the few people I talked to always say they don't like him and then continue to describe things Clint Walker did on KOTR, thinking it was Clive. Poor guys career got sabotaged by his shitty friend.

Awkward fits aside I'm starting to really feel bad for Clive. Seems like every year he puts out a solid part with a few legit, memorable hammers yet somehow he's losing sponsors. As someone said he probably puts out more watchable content then the rest of the birdhouse team combined so that makes this move seem all the weirder. Honestly hope he ends up in a better place.
I know slap's concerned with his fashion or music choices but to me his parts are always a fun watch. He is one of the few skaters skating right now where when you see a new part of his posted you know there's going to be some scary shit going down. He's not afraid to go big. He's no Heath but he's in that mold.

What's up with birdhouse anyway? They've been pretty half-assed for years now but the company feels practically inactive at this point.

There's a small part of me that feels like Clive was always just kooky by association due to the current Birdhouse roster. When he was on the Nine Club I was surprised at how reflective and mild mannered he was and was even more shocked to hear that he was several drafts into writing a book (which of course Chris made about himself so there was no follow up information, but I digress). He seems like an alright guy when he's not surrounded by obnoxious assholes like Clint Walker and he's clearly a hard worker so I hope he can flourish without that Birdhouse baggage.

I hope he is not of pro skateboarding, Clive is legit. Toy Machine would be nice. I mean, Collin just left a couple months ago, so there may be a spot..

I will give them credit for being the last board company that I can remember to put out physical copies of a video. Not too much credit though because the limited run made it so hard to get.

Not hesh enough for Creature. But, IMO, he does fit Santa Cruz.

And with what he's been putting out. He deserves a board sponsor that pays and a shoe deal.
