They're getting Reynolds, Heath, and Klein together to re-make the Birdhouse vid
Do you see another one of these over there?

This is what happens when you market to and are supported by nostalgia fans who skate 1 board a year.

Hard agree, the name alone was always a recipe for disaster.

Iíve got one from @Sativa Lung that is lightly skated in the Rowley shape. Pretty sure he was using his own concave for these and the shape looks cool. Was anybody else on the team?

One of the worst names for a company in skateboarding history, made worse by the fact it evokes memories of a rad company, Freedumb
Have fun out there

I don't know if Pedro was actually on in, I think that was just a guest board. Actually iirc that was around the time that Pedro had like 3 boards out on 3 different companies (freedom, pocket pistols, and someone else I can't recall) haha.

Haven't seen anything from Pedro Barros in years. He was gnarly like ten years ago. Injuries?
