This might be a controversial take, but Curren moving to FA could move them closer to what the brand was 10 years ago.

Curren is one of the best rn and FA needs it

THIS

BUT

THAT
Curren definitely skating that new Touzery FA board. Crazy. I really thought that nothing would come of this. The plot thickens. At this point, it's still gonna take more than that for me to actually care about FA though.

Yes, adopting a bunch of established pros is the fresh start FA needs.

Idk, Iíve never been an FA fan really, so I guess my thoughts donít matter. I am more likely to by a curren or Louie fA board than I was a flip board, or any of the original FA team.

I wonder the Curren x Louie duo will fill the Tyshawn x Nak duo hole FA has.

Not to mention it would be sick if Curren & Louie share a board.

Kind of hard for me to shake the clean-cut image I have of him. Not that that's a bad thing, just doesn't jive with FA imo. Would prefer to see some unknown ams who kill it on the team.

I was there and watched it all go down. The trash can tricks were fucked up

Garvanza Extravaganza. I imagine seeing that massive kickflip board and impossible nosegrind/crook-thing (with his foot dangling) IRL was fucked. Berle still looks like an insencure 80's movie bully, but that trick was impressive and hairy in the best way.

Getting Curren (and hopefully Jake too) will be a boon for them, but unless FA focuses more on actual skating (the occasional park clips on Instagram aren't cutting it) and chills with the look-book fashionista barrage, they could be interesting. Although, something tells me we're gonna end up just seeing more shoe collabs and Dill speaking engagements.

100% agree. They could definitely use some hungry and relevant ams. That would be a better way to go.

Hockey could too. I don't understood why they only have one am now, although talented.

I feel like we fell into the pit where there's a insane amount of new company's with unknown AMs taking the spotlights, FA needs the image that Curren and Louie brings to revitalize the old public and grow a new future/making a solid foundation.

FA snagging Karen and JA would be huge. they've (FA) definitely fallen off, but grabbing these heavy hitters would bring em back. not saying they would fill the Tyshawn-sized void, but it's better than maintaining their lowered production with dudes not skating or being injured. Louie can only carry FA for so long...

Iím not the biggest Tyshawn fan (read: not a hater - he does amazing skating but it doesnít really do anything for meÖ he didnít originally clear the table), but Curren (potential Ď23 SOTY run) or Louie (has been thiiiis close to SOTY almost every year since 2017) easily > Nakel. Thatís not even a question. Arguably, Nakel leaving FA and not even getting replaced would be a +1 for FA, considering the baggage dude brought with him re: L*tties

Curren and Louie being a greater sum than TJ, however, is way more subjective. Curren hasnít put out a damn thing recently until that Vans part, and TJ goes radio silent every few years as well, but the last two times he put footage out, he won SOTY. Meanwhile Louie has been putting out 10 minutes of footage a year but doesnít have that title.

Also Jake Anderson is sick and deserves better than Skate Mental

Thatís a good point. Curren didnít put much out but pop up in edits for rvca every so often then did that banger  vans part. And I think had a good amount of footage In a rvca edit.

My point is if curren goes to FA is he just gonna go MIA like most of FA or fill that tj spot where he actually is constantly producing something?

Jake Anderson seems to drop footy pretty regular. Fun to watch too

Curren probably canít fill TJs shoes alone But curren and JA could. And Nak barely counts.

Nah, he'd been working on this part for a while. He talked about it in his bunt episode last year.


Curren is talented.
But, I don't think we've seen THE Curren part.
Hopefully this change and how the FA camp edits their videos may give Curren the part I want to see from him.
To me (and I think a lot of other people as well) the vans part was THE Curren part. While I personally wish there was more transition footage, for the most part it's the Curren part I'd always wanted. I could still see him making an even better one though.

Curren is a notorious partier. Definitely looks clean cut but he has some war stories.

His Bunt interview was amazing for this reason. I've always thought Curren was an incredible skater, but that interview was great at giving insight on who he actually is. Def made me stop thinking about him as just some dreamt up marketing dream from SoCal.

Curren, Jake and Louie starting a brand under the FA camp after all would be the best case scenario here.

I think the opposite. FA was originally as core as it could be and it was considered extremely hard to get on. You had to have something about you. Curren and Jake did not have that thing/dont have that thing and wouldn't have got on back then. If they get on its almost like watering down what their whole image was.

Thatís how I felt about Louie getting on.  He doesnít really fit FAís image, and the only way he will, is if they veer away from that fashion-conscious image and continue adding rippers like Curren and Jake.

Dill knows that Louie and his friends have enough hype around them that they could easily do their own brand and are probly already getting offers to do so. Heís like the cool parent that lets the kids drink at his house so they donít get into trouble elsewhere.

Lets be honest. Dill knows that unproductive fashion kid from NY hype is done. He needs true skate rats that can give him good skate content. He feels the FA hate...when he put Louie on and the guy destoyed short edits like nothing it would be a signal for other dudes. Dont forget Tyshawn is of. He really need true skate rats.

Curren is no weirder of a clean cut fit than Louie. Louie riding for Noah is a million times more odd than Curren riding for RVCA  and being on FA.

I mean, when I think of Curren I think of Target, surfingÖjust stuff that doesnít really jive with FAís image. I know he parties, and that people and sponsors change, itís still a bit of an odd fit to me thatís all. I thought the same about Louie though and it makes sense now, so maybe the same will happen if curren is actually on.

Plus didnít Dill say that FA is for the kids? Thatís also part of the reason why it seems like an uneven fit.
