Chocolate has been my favorite company since almost forever, and Iím about to turn 40. Aside from trunk boys, theyíve kept it pretty classy. Excited for the new guys.

I hope Crob and Eldy have a couple clips at least. I honestly donít really know who most of the new riders are at all but stoked to see actual parts in a video from them.

This, sheesh guys go get something.

I suppose Chris Roberts could get a crazy curb trick for this, even though he's been pretty vocal how he only skates for fun and once a week. He has that new twin shape out, so there's that.

Eldridge on the other hand, I believe just started easing into it after being injured forever. Maybe it was in the Bunt episode where he said he doesn't want to put himself through that injury bullshit again. He seems to be focusing hard on golf and getting his golf company going, which I think is awesome. I dig the company, Number Thirty Three, wish I could find some of their stuff in Europe.

I'm sure there won't be Crob / Eldy parts but the new squad is really amazing. Chocolate is doing great.

Weird how one of the bigger skate podcasts is run by guys who hardly skateboard. Seems more like a way for them to make money off skateboarding.

Guys with decades deep history in skating and the skate industry. They know what they're talking about. Having a name on pro board at this point may be debatable but they're more than qualified to talk about skating.
This is whatís truly debatable

The thing I find funny about Chris Roberts when he talks about skating for fun, he talks about  it as if he has had some exhaustive career where he has really taken it seriously and had a real fruitful career with multiple video parts, extensive touring & magazine coverage, it's like he really did all he could, and has nothing left to give, in his mind at least.

I've noticed the complete opposite, he pokes fun at his career all the time and has explicitly mentioned in a self-deprecating way that he has like 10 minutes of footage.

It's a YouTube channel guys, it's not like he's taking up space on network TV.

Drop the old roster and move forward with the Aikens, Trahan, Capps and Erik. Thatís a solid team right there. Time to move on.

Generally I agree with the exception of Jesus Fernandez. He may not be the most productive but I have an irrational soft spot for him

Jesus still skates all the time at a high level unlike some others in his age bracket on the team

All Eldy does is eat hot chip and lie
I like my women the same way I like my personified cups of coffee...black...strong...and proud.

No puedo hacerlo aplaudir, pero puedo hacer que diga: "°Whoo!"

Eldy will always be one of my favorites. All of his older eS stuff made me a fan even though he only had one big part. I was always looking forward to tour edit sprinkles

Theyíre really doing Hosea dirty by not putting him fully on but hopefully that will change. Carl part is gonna be so good though. Dude has the best style and his roll aways are butter. Canít wait to skate his first pro model

Threads like this are what make me feel bad for the newer Crail guys. One of them could McTwist off of a hotel over a helicopter but they'll never get the full shine they deserve because the conversation will always be dominated by whatever old guys are still milking it.
[close]

A lot of comments in here are saying Crail should drop the older dudes to let the new guys shine ? I have no clue who they are but Iím stoked to see actual parts in a video and not some forgettable single on Thrasher.


That's my point. At this rate it's straight up distracting that they don't.

My guess is Carl first part and Trahan last, or vice versa.

The name seems a bit out of place

Should be a good vid.

I think Eldridge said that Megan Baltimore contacted him and asked to remove/save a clip he posted on Insta. A pivot fakie, maybe? So that could be going in there as a guest clip in a part, or a montage.

@danielpolicelli think there'll be a clip or two of Roberts and Eldridge? Congrats on all your success btw, hard work pays of.

Side note - anyone else never bought skate product based on the pro? Thatís literally never crossed my mind before, like, ďthis dude is sick I canít wait to buy his board/shoe etcĒ. Always bought product purely based on how it feels. If itís a brand I donít like but the board feels good Iíll just remove the graphics. The odds that a pro I like will have the exact shape I ride available when Iím buying my next deck are pretty low, and in all honesty I just donít care. Not knocking supporting specific pros at all, just curious if anyone else isnít motivated by the pro when buying product?

Iíll buy for a shape, and if a pro just so happens to always make that shape, I suppose I do.

Case in point, the Ishod twin tail, that Chima short wheelbase 8.25 that was around for a while, and Peter Hewitt AHís back in 2006-2012.

It was a mistake letting go of Chico. He was the last one from the old roster. He still skates - very good and inspiring and bridges the gap from the old to what ever the new chocolate is. As a old fan of the brand I don't think that either Eldrige, Chris Roberts, Kenny Anderson or Ferrnandez is part of the old guard.

A positive note is that they are facing out the trunk boys, which was a violation of the brand in my opinion. The new guys are okay casted. Peace out from a grumpy old man. 

Ps. they should let go of Raven Tershy - Give him back to creature or something.

I believe that was because it was at the new Crail park and it wasn't revealed yet at that point, they were going to do an intro clip of the park or something.

In the new Breanna episode Roberts said he had just filmed a slappy trick with the Crail filmer.

Damn, apparently I listen to a lot of these skate podcasts cause I know all these details...

Hope they donít edit too much of this to some pop shit. I like pop music but for chocolate, especially this current team I need something smoother, maybe one punk song but donít want something to cornballish

He blew out his Achilles filming for his A Time to Shine part. That likely changed his career trajectory.
