Violet is a tiny brand compared to Baker, who are on the wall at pretty much every skate shop in the world. Money isn't everything, but Kader probably had the best selling board on Baker and was their most relevant rider - they should have been paying so much that he wouldn't even consider leaving. I don't know the circumstances, but this feels like as big of a fumble by Baker as it does Kader. Unless there was some kind of personal conflict, I have to think they had the means to hold onto him if they really wanted to.
Older skaters know Baker's history and we definitely enjoy the fact they are still relevant after all these years (good talent scouting that's for sure). But the current hype among teens has a lot to do with Fried AF Supreme Kader. yeah it feels like a bad move for both

if what horses said is true then i'm really dumbfounded by reynolds' decision. kader is more valuable to baker than baker is to kader, for sure.

unless reynolds finds another kader then i feel like it might be the beginning of baker's demise, but i hope i'm wrong.

This.

Thereís no way baker a legacy brand will crumble with out kader. More people on slap talk about kader than people in the real world. Heís talented yes but his names rarely a topic outside of slap. Heís not a Reynolds a Tiago or an ishod. Baker fa and hockey could probably cherry pick anyone they want and unless your Kevin white youíll take the offer. So if they need to fill kaders spot it probably wonít be hard. Bone head choice if kader chose to leave.

Totally, heís talented and has a cool name, but how many parts did he put out last year? I donít see him doing much. For as young as he is he shouldíve been aiming for SOTY like Tyshawn, but to me it feels like skating, his actual job, is an afterthought to him. Seems like he wants to chill and smoke. Baker will be fine but heíll be forgotten if he doesnít grow up soon.

unless kader starts actually releasing parts he is hardly valuable to anybody... dude is the middle of a piling out phase right now, hopefully he turns it around

I won't say Baker is done with Kader leaving but Reynolds is almost a nobody to the teen crowd (which is the main crowd in skateboarding). Kader is definitely a topic among that crowd, probably more than anyone that is currently pro for Baker right now

It's a good thing that there are more skaters on Baker/Deathwish than just Reynolds and Kader.

Idk, I think a lot of kids skate Baker boards cause theyíre in a lot of shops and they see others skating them. The logo deck is basically generic at this point. I think theyíll be fine lol

They kicked out: black guy who fight boxe, Cyril Jackson, Long hair guy that backside fliped hollywood 16 and many others. Its business at the end of the day. I think he is becaming too fresh for baker, let him go.

Reynolds was starting to get annoyed with the back and forth and lackadaisical approach over the last 6 months, Kader never actually spoke to him about it. Reynolds eventually told him to quit, Kader realised he didn't want to and basically begged Reynolds to keep him, but he stood firm and made him quit.

Yeah as if the kids donít love Jacopo, Tyson, Vince, Zach, max, t funk, that handsome guy whose on deatjwish and cons, that max kid - plus they got a bunch of really dope skaters on flo rn so no matter who leaves they always got like a back stock of crazy good/dope skaters. Kader is kinda 2000 and late at this point - unless he starts putting out new footage or something heís j a kid who put out some amazing parts then started getting stoned - call him trappasso

Iím a fan of Donte but Iíve never thought he was good enough to be Am. Seems like a nice enough guy but he didnít seem on the level of Baker Am.

I get why Kader wants to go to the hot new brand, but Baker seems like such a safe bet. Theyíve been relevant for the last 20 years and you canít say that about really any company. Give it a couple years and weíll have an ad about him being back on Baker
