core-porate…

my whole life i have been hyped on supporting skateboarding in every way, shape, and form… i was one of those kids that left the house everyday with a skate t-shirt and jeans on… if it was cold i had my Zero windbreaker or Shorty’s hoody… i loved the fact that i knew what these companies were about… i was semi-conscious of the fact that i was supporting them when i wore their clothing… i never fully realized that i was a bit of a walking advertisement for them… i just wanted others to know that i skated and didn’t give much of a shit… it was one of the best times of my life…

as i have grown older and become a bit more conscious of what i am doing when i buy and wear certain clothes… i have also worked in the skate industry, and that opened my eyelids to the back of my head… i saw a lot of crazy shit… i learned a lot about who is really behind the scenes of all these companies… i always assumed numerous companies were independently run (because that is how i saw skateboarding, independent)…

after learning about the huge companies that moved there money hungry asses into skateboarding, i have become very picky about who and what i support… i have now taken it upon myself to educate other people/skaters about these corporations that are in it for the money (burton, k2, foot locker, timberland, ecko, etc.)…

i am trying to support the core companies that are skateboarder owned and run… i understand it is not an easy task but skateboarding is not around for people to make money off of… the money you make off of it should be put right back into skateboarding and skateboarders… that is what is real.

peace and noLove
