Indifferent, but only rode AH back in the late 90s, mainly in support of Cardiel. Maybe AH might be nearing its lifespan, just for the fact there is discussion around this question, OP would've been kooked to oblivion historically. Hesh image not as popular nowadays with the masses, lot of kids subscribe to Polar, Palace, FA, Primitive images where I am. One hesh to every 20 Tiago or Tyshawn etc clones

What area of the country are you from?

As far as marketing is concerned, at least AH are pretty much the only major hesh company that is still relevant, meaning that instead of the hesh kids spreading their money between AH, creature, slave, etc like they did 10-15 years ago, it's all just going to AH. Honestly I'd be surprised if they weren't doing better now than they were 10 years ago.

I neither love or hate them. I like their boards and shapes, most graphics suck, I like a lot of the skating the dudes do and Iím fucking bummed on them acting like tough guy assholes.

anti-hero is the equivalent of the core local at your surf spot.

Still rides a clear thruster shortboard with glass on fins, still kills it despite the gray beard, DUI, and aging joints.

I am in agreeance, I like the boards and the team, don't like the 1-8 posers who pretend to be sponsored by them or something but in reality are doofus dingles.

More important question, is Creature worse? Their fans are also a special breed like gothic Trader Joe's customers

Seeing this in the part of Europe I'm in.

Really good point with the hesh coin only going to AH rather than creature etc.

AH has been a joke ever since Hewitt filmed his first clip wearing nike

I wonder what kind of mental gymnastics julien has to do every day to justify supporting biggest shoe corpo on earth milking everything they can out of skating

He should force everyone to drop nike and get everyone on a contract with last resort where everyone would still have to pay for shoes

seriously if anyone cornered julien in an interview to ask him his thoughts on his riders wearing nike I would love to see his response

everyone has a price innit

As long as they continue releasing football shaped decks I'm fine with them.
I wish they'd release boards in the yinzer shape more often, it's my all time favorite

I'm in the love camp. In my group of skater friends I was the only one into the hesh image and brands (Black Label, AH, Creature) and even started wearing the early 10's hesh uniform(classic Vans, baggy Dickies, flannels, etc.) when everyone else wanted to look like either Dylan or P Rod. Looking back, the fake tough guy stuff with those brands was definitely corny but those brands exposed me to different styles of skating and for that I'll still support them when I can.

Yes Julien confront him to choose AH or X Games.
And this was his biggest regret looking back as a Skateboard company owner.
Because he weight his own principles more then the needs of this friend.

This coud answer all of your questions concerning his mindsetting about Nike -
If your friend decide to get that Nike paycheck and do this olympics - what weight more:
your principles to be respected from others
or your friendship with them.

I really like Anti Hero - and its one of the few company i buy - because i am fine with
team, ownership, product, and aesthetics in general.
Coud it be better - yes for sure -  everyting coud be better. But i like it a lot.

But i definitely dont like the Anti Hero Clone Clowns who overpopulate any Bowl Skatepark.

I put this in the hot little takes thread, but it might be more appropriate here.

For all the hellride haters

Creature is a worse offender than Anti Hero

I'm not sure why AH gets all the hate.

I'm not really a hellride guy myself, but i dont get annoyed by it like a lot of people on here do.
.....Nah

I don't ever know if i hellrode... but I think I was "accused of hellriding" around 2013.
I wore Dickies with flannels most of my life (which I got from suicidal tendencies in the 80s). Someone that was half my age said something along the lines of "that anti hero looking guy there" at this skate event. I still think that is hilarious. But yeah, cut off Dickies, flannel, high socks with eras. But also flip up bill ST hat. I love ST.

But just because.. I would imagine this is the origin of the name hellride anyway

sometimes you don't only hellride.. you rip ride as well

Tent city is amazing and I will always love watching that video.  Being on the road or away from home can be a sad existence sometimes but you do it because you feel like you have to and that video captures that.    It gets even darker when you realize youíre watching the last footage of John Cardiel pre-injury and heís absolutely killing it.  He was and will always be the greatest.

Iím indifferent to them as a brand. They sponsor one of my fav dudes ever BA. My homie gave me a pigeon deck a while back and it was really good and had lots of pop. Lasted me almost three months which is a long time. Iíd would def buy the decks for sure.
