I sincerely hope FLiP can restore itself to some semblance of its former greatness. The ad direction in the new issue of Thrasher isnít really doing it for me personally, but we have a Large Mountain (B-How TS ref, lol) on the way to my lil shop. FLiP should be up there in the ranks with Toy and Zero, for crying out loud.

David needs a gnarly skate ad or a cover, with a big ass logo tee on to grow some new community following or something maybe. They should also get Roos the gal who 50 grinded Hollywood 16, thatís the move right there if anyone from FLiP is reading this, imho.

I think flip is still pretty much level with toy and zero. They just kinda lack a clear image both as a team and graphics wise. You know a toy machine board from a mile away. Roos sure but also Aori and Pamela Rosa. Flip should of taken them at least 3 years ago. If Roos is on enjoi flow it would prob make sense to swap over to blind. That might actually lead somewhere the team is from all over and many do comps etc

Agree. So crazy if you think about it though, imagine telling that to someone 10-15 years ago. That 3 of the top board companies were all just kinda mediocre now, almost b tier.
Not like Habitat, Alien, Chocolate or Girl have really maintained it either who were the biggest brands to me at that time. The brand that seems to have the longest longevity near the top is Real, and its probably because the brand lacks a dedicated image.

He was dating Shane Crossís sister for quite some time right? 600k incident is fucking hilarious. He might look like he works at Hot Topic but itís undeniable he rips.

Nah, I back him 1000%. I just canít believe how cranked down his trucks are. Looks like the bushings on the one truck are like, exploded/cracked. For the skating he does, I find it hard to believe how tight those trucks have to be.

Was a SOTY ever so quickly forgotten about? He rules, and I appreciate that he just fucked off back to Colombia rather than sticking around California to fight for crumbs with a zillion other pros. I expect that those Rockstar checks go pretty goddamn far in Medellin, and the dude is always hitting the most beautiful and gnarly spots, so it sounds like heís got it figured out.
[close]

Maybe he's one of the few pros who was smart about his royalty checks and contest money, and got himself setup for life back home. Still getting royalties from Rockstar and Flip to keep the lights on and pay for a nice dinner once in a while, effectively retiring while still healthy and not chewed out by the industry.

Doubt Flip would ever kick him off unless they went under.
[close]

Yeah, I know Heath famously did that and hasn't had to work a "real job" since leaving skateboarding.
[close]
I'm sceptical about how accurate this is. To really survive you have to invest your money in stuff. I don't think he retired just by not wasting money and having a couple vending machines. I think David had a pretty nice house. I suppose he could of sold that and survive for a bit.

Heath was a top pro during the era of the biggest paychecks in skate history. I'm sure he was getting at least six-figures yearly from his shoe, deck sales and other endorsements. Some simple investments, maybe buying a house during the crash in 08-09, and you could definitely live that "FIRE" sort of lifestyle.

Real, like Anti-Hero, benefits hugely from being a DLX brand, run by the biggest players in the entire industry.

Yes, it is Strange. He skates bowls regularly too. How does he do it? The bushings must be Uber soft

Yeah he did, I remember my friend told me he met her via MySpace and regularly chatted with her and did some  skype with her sometimes and Daveed was kinda jealous he sometimes pop in in during the call..


He rips for sure, as a few people said here I fell the same with the rock/throwing the horns every single minute, kinda played, but skatewise he's a legend in my book.


Also, kinda off topic, I dont follow him on IG, so I don't know his relationship status, but I remember he had some hot GF, def have good taste.

If I wasnt me, I never hang out with me...

Just noticed that Rihanna follows him on Instagram. That's a lifestyle hammer in my book


While everyone is bitching that he loves rock n roll he's out there doing crazy shit on a board while Rihanna watches. I for one am not a player hater. Go daveed!

The metal vert ramp he skates regularly is fucked. He posted a clip in his story today. So sketchy looking to me (someone who canít skate transition for the life of me). Super tall, skinny, metal vert rampÖand he skates itís like itís a mini ramp.

Are you aware that Gurney is on Blood Wizard? It would be way easier to just take David in.

Cucktard is correct: heís of the Wiz for a minute now.
Apparently Jerry has pioneered a new way of milking cows & has gone into the dairy business. Heís making fat stacks now.
In fact, using his techniques, he just helped me turn my $600 investment into $28,000!
