Probs gonna start his own brand now. I feel like brands like Supreme, Palace and Fucking Awesome opened up a lot kids into skateboarding, but not the sort who want to wear an Element hoodie and use a Birdhouse deck, bit of a gap in the market for "cool" skate brands, excluding those ones, and stuff like Polar

4 part video on Ali Boulala. Quite moving and sobering he's a different person compared to how he was on the old flip/ baker videos.

This is definitely the trend, and imo there are already too many "fashion" skate brands. See Bianca Chandon, Dime, Alltimers, 917 Call Me, Thames, Doomsayers and all those you mentioned…

I dont think there are "too many" at all.. but there definitely isnt a "gap in the market". Fashion/style has always been a major part of skateboarding and it always will

Dunno what trucks and wheels you'll get but few in here for not a lot of cash if you want something basic to get back into it.

The talk of the old flip team got me thinking about this section from Uno in 1996. I was blown away by Penny's tricks over the chain.
