wrong way, doods…

everyone knows and has seen njyah’s part that came out recently… after watching it, i was blown away… the kid is a kid and he is fearless… the shit he throws down is uncanny… it is a sign of more insanity to come from the youth…

i’m not writing this to profess the obvious… skateboarding is out of control… progressing at an exponential rate… i’m writing this to talk about something entirely different that was inspired by this part… what is this new fad with individual parts? what has inspired this change in the industry? most importantly, what happened to the crew?

the first thing i thought of when i got perturbed about these individual parts was what Kalis said about filming and skate parts… the new thing is to get a big name filmer and go to “famous” spots and do something that has never been done… skateboarding (to me) has always been about rolling around with your friends and seizing the day… these new individual parts do not promote that… they promote the individual… there is no “team” vibe in these video parts…

so, who is promoting this type of individuality? you cannot blame the skater… they are only doing what their sponsors tell them to do… so i put the blame on the industry… skateboarding is about everyone. not any ONE… don’t push the skateboarding industry in the same direction as the mainstream… we need to stick together and keep this a unified culture…

we already idolize celebrities and individuals… it’s destroying society… don’t destroy skateboarding.

peace and noLove…
