About fucking time they get Geoff and Tom on Palace.
[close]

why would palace do that?  why should palace do that?

Because they are English skateboarding royalty. There's nary a better fit in all of skateboarding. When the Palace team was smaller, it made a bit less sense. Now that the team is so large, it's a crime they're not on. Yes, it would be a sort of veteran's division thing, but in fact both guys are still skating at a ridiculously high level. A couple tricks a year in the occasional edit, it'd be a beautiful fucking thing.

Unless it's a guest board I really don't see Palace grabbing either. Side note, I just discovered I've been blocked on IG by Palace lmao. Called their McDonald's collab wack af.

I may not like much of what post-vegan Rowley likes or is into, but I donít really feel like piling on

I probably dont care and it's a whole waste of energy to pursue it...but what do you mean? Got any links where I can explore what hath becometh of Mr Rowley?
ok thanks

I don't think it would necessarily happen but I could definitely see Rowley skating Zero, Toy, Black Label or maybe Doom Sayers boards. I would've said Darkstar as well before the collapse of Dwindle. He doesn't fit on any brand thats come up after the early 00's.

in terms of his personal brand, rowley is about the least palace skater in all of existence. them cats are out getting mashed up to jungle, he's out mashing up jungle cats. it's just not gonna work.

anyway they already have a hesh scouser.

If my rep is ever an even number, please kindly throw me either a kook or a gnar in order to return me to my odd number equilibrium.

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

He only released one graphic a year so it should have been perfect.

I donít understand why people think heís still so deserving of a sponsor. Sorry and all that was great, I grew up on it. But that last part was a snoozer. Itís cool that he still skates hard but I didnít need to see it. Why is it that in skateboarding some find it necessary to continue to pay someone based on what they did two decades ago?

Damn. Kind of sucks that he put in all that effort for an 8 minute part, had a premiere for it, and just a couple months later his company goes under.

I would say he should go back to Flip, but I kind of remember reading he wasnít on good terms with Jeremy Fox or something (?).
