"first and foremost, skateboarding DOES NOT NEED anyone to do anything for skateboarding. skateboarding was doing just fine before it became corporate, and in my opinion it is worse off now that at any other time in its short history. koston, as someone eluded to before, is concerned about helping himself. he is rich and a wannabe celebrity, and a fucking Scientologist at that. I could do without the berrics as most people who skate would not have missed it had it never existed. basically steve berra failed as an actor and came up with a good plan to exploit the current market. i am not saying that there is no good in their hearts toward skateboarding, i just personally do not appreciate when anyone takes it upon themselves to represent skateboarding, or change it for whatever reason, especially when that involves creating an image thats only benefit is to the one making the change, e.g
., corporate, non skate sponsorship. not to mention nikes horrible human rights record. skateboarding belongs to EVERYONE WHO SKATES. not these glorified assholes. for every pro, there is a hometown hero who kills it. i am cool with people getting paid to skate, but when it gets to this level of psuedo celebrity infighting, yes i am entertained, but, it has nothing to do with skateboarding, only some deuchebags who skate. so guys, stop pretending that who you are and what you do is more important than the rest of us who skate for fun and dont need anything from you."
