Him and Koston confuse me with their truck sponsors. Both ride Thunder and Venture consistently but havenít been added to the teams.

Pretty much. Makes me wonder if most sponsored skaters are getting paid or just getting free products. Like Iím talking about the ones without signature gear. I imagine just a random, mid-tier pro isnít making much.

Guy - get it - there is no money in hardware.

Trucks are only bought by skateboarders - and we usually didnít buy them because Hawk, Koston or Nyjah ride them. This guys are marketing tools to sell stuff to peoples outside of skateboarding like  video games, Jordan 4, or energy drinks.
This high known faces who represent skateboarding to a further target group donít do brand endorsement for small money. How much they need to pay for trucks each year? One set - they get it for free anyway. But how much they coud get out of a track sponsorship - one photoshoot for a milk commercial - or the Navy, or some fastfood chain - is more money you can do with a truck sponsor in a life time.

Titan-Ti Lite trucks

For a minute I thought you were just making these up. Had no idea they got into the skate market. Their BMX frames back in the late 80ís were really nice.

Iím sure his Nike and Monster checks are satisfying enough that he doesnít give a shit about hardware sponsors and just uses whatever he likes.

Thank you. I don't think that thunder can't "afford" him i think that nyjah just don't care because there is no money in trucks

This ad is old, pre-teen Nyjah and Felipe Gustavo was already on the team??

Apparently Felipe has been on the game for longer than I thought.

Yeah thereís a few names on that roster that date the advert but Felipeís name being there surprised me too. He was probably still a teen when this ad was out I guess.

I don't know anything about BMX frames, but I do know that titan ti-lights are both the lightest and worst truck I've owned, and I'm the guy who had navigators with hot rod flames painted on them. Theyre the lightest because they're just an axle frame, the hanger itself is basically hollowed out and made from some cheap and plastic feeling alloy. Theyre so shitty that the axle had to be fastened to the hangar with metal dowels.



Combine that with the inch plus tall rock hard bushings and you get a tall, tippy truck that legitimately does not turn. It feels like you're skating a sled or something. I paid less than $20 including shipping and still feel ripped off.

This is around 2011-2012 when he returned and had the dreads and was like 16. Gustavo was just getting on plan b . Heís been around since he won Tampa am in 2007.

Can Thunder afford anyone? I feel like they might pay their guys on commission only if they have a colorway out

The truck game has to be weird because Lucas Puig is sponsored by Thunder and is on the team site but on instagram he constantly skates Indyís. Andrew Wilson is on Venture, had a colorway, is on Krooked now yet I still see him skate Indyís.

There might be little money in it but truck ads historically are my favorite ads.

Mark Gonzales Rail road track plant. Mark at Alcatraz. Wade Spayer loading dock bump to hydrant. Magnet Head with the cool light burn wiggles.

Natas Kupas NEIGHBORHOOD THREAT

Truck ads are the best.

Titan ti-lite is before my time. I remember my older brother getting sets of those talking about how great they are and why that is why they broke so easily. Hella light but seeing him come home with shattered truck hangars. Only still to get another pair next weekend.

Early 2000 a.c. vibes here.
