  11. go skateboarding day is the queerest sellout company idea since the x-games. please leave skateboarding the fuck alone. they made companys like DC and shit unskateable unless you want to be heavily embarrassed and have fred durst saying nice shoes to you. now they are making es slowly gayer. now im going to have to skate in fucking socks with shoe goo on them.dont go queer please es, we need you.

    You Dont Know Me Posted: 9 years ago
  12. how could you say that, dont you have pride in being a skateboarder and that its made it this to have a day it doesnt matter if everyone else is doing it it just matters that you are and that its the best thing in the world to you.

    Ryan Posted: 9 years ago
  13. your just the one embarrassed

    Ryan Posted: 9 years ago

    Mr Gallon Posted: 9 years ago

  20. Go Skateboard Day was started by ISAC which stands for International Association of Skateboard Companies. This group is run by some of the most respected people in the skate industry. Go Skateboarding Day is a day for YOU to get together with your friends and skate. How this is like the X-Games is beyond me. Just wait until you see the turnout at Love Park. It’s gonna be insane.

  22. hey i know this is really off topic. but in one of those Capital One credit card commercials, the ones with david spaid. they show him in the begining of one, when that guy goes to beat him up. and when they show him on the phone it looks like hes wearing some black accels. i dont know if its just me or sometthing. maybe im just shoe crazy. but you guys check it out and let me know what you think. peace

  23. girl boards are china wood whats up with that rick howard

    neil hope Posted: 9 years ago
  24. hes right...and it sucks. go skateboarding day is really lame.the first time i heard it i thought it was a joke, then i figured it was going to go away like 88 footwear but then suddenly i saw being linked to companys i thought were cool. is skateboarding really this lame? we have kids like that terry kennedy guy being shot because of drugs, 90% of skating is fashion trends (it was in the old days but now its just out of control) and we are losing real companies faster than we can gain them (plan b with syndrome and ipath selling out and being found in walmart) just the other day i walked past sport mart on the way to the store and saw a pair of koston 1's in there. hold onto what we got because its almost gone boys.

    John Posted: 9 years ago

    andreia Posted: 9 years ago
  26. what's wrong with you guys? Doesn't anyone skate for fun these days?

    Justin Posted: 9 years ago
  27. Koston is no more in Royal team. He skates now to Venture Trucks. I've never seen Koston skating with Thunders.

    Pete Posted: 9 years ago
  28. Justin is right. Everyone should skate for fun. That's the point. Just having fun and cruisin' around, jumping and doing tricks.

    Pete Posted: 9 years ago
  29. u guys r faggs it doesnt matter who cares if its selling out its still the best thing in the world and thats all that matters just deal with it and dont cry like little bitches

    Ryan Posted: 9 years ago
  30. dude im skippin school i had test today fuck with that, but dude i might not have vacations for that i might have it tomorrow. bring backke the EOS and the K3.

    alex Posted: 9 years ago
  31. It's funny because it's the people who are trying to keep skating a sacred livelihood which the public cannot look at and say I respect it are most likely the people who quit skating. They want to be different that much that they skate to fulfill there part in life when really there millions of us fuckers skating and nothing in this world is sacred and unique after all like confucious the great chinese philosopher says we are all one family and we shouldn't segregate ourselves we should have things that bond us together are people really bad people if they are rocking ES shoes and they aren't wearing them out on grip. Who the fuck says at the shop "Woo you can't buy them unless you skate in them" noone -exactly. ES are a buisness they are also lovers of skateboarding, they want it to grow commercially so that primarily ( i hope) they spread the love of skating and give kids good products and probably secondly to make money. So I hope a lot of you guys realise that ES have humans behind it like you and me, they aren't bad guys trying to make skating "gay" they are trying to give it a respectable name. Something you should be proud of to be associated with. Jim UK

  35. I know this is really off topic, but has anyone heard about terry kennedy getting shot in long beach last friday? Shit, it's weird.

    Dave Posted: 9 years ago
  36. Hey Josh P, I know it's a stupid question, but I'm very curious.

    If I were to ride for the éS team (I'm not sending a tape.) and become an Flow or an AM, would I get to pick the shoes I want to wear, or does éS just send out random pairs out to the riders?

    Jem Posted: 9 years ago
  37. Hey Pete, where did you hear that Koston is off of Royal? I've seen him in ads and shit skating Venture Trucks but on the Royal site it says hes still on the team.

    Kevin L. Posted: 9 years ago
  38. go skateboarding day? how about gel your hair and do push ups before football day. fuck skateboarding is gay and so are the new models on the site, those shoes are horrid

    dsf Posted: 9 years ago
  39. dsf.- get out of here, what are you doing here if you dont even like skateboarding?
    we havent say anything about football, so i guess you shouldnt be saying that about skateboarding,
    anyway what are you doing looking at skateboarding shoes if you dont even like them?-that´s gay

    Alex Posted: 9 years ago

    Alex Posted: 9 years ago
  45. wish school could give that day off to everyone that skates, oh well that was just some silly thought, i guess that will never happen.

    Alex Posted: 9 years ago
  46. Josh P. or Craig: what kind of shoe does J. Eldrige have in the picture with his cadillac?

    Alex Posted: 9 years ago

    Ryan Posted: 9 years ago

  50. how could a worldwide day for skaters possibly happen without some sort of corporate sponsership?

    if u guys think everyone in the world skating simultaneously on the same day is lame u obviously have no idea about the meaning of being a true skater

    Fat J Posted: 9 years ago
  51. Dudes, every day is Skateboarding Day but this event was put together by skateboarders to help promote skateboarding on a bigger level. I know that skateboarding becoming popular can be a scary thought but at the same time it can do a lot of good. More attention to skateboarding brought on by actuall skateboarders means we'll have more of say when skateparks get built instead of some non-skater, your local shop can just sell skate goods and still stay in business, your local government won't be so fast to ban it in your town and the list can go on and on. Go Skateboarding Day is just to let the world know that skateboarders own and run skateboarding..not the big soft drink companies, not the big extreme fire hoop jumping contest promoters...just skateboarders. Make some noise and take control of what you love...skateboarding. Wow, talk about going off on a tangent.

  52. That K7 color he's wearing comes out in Spring of next year by the way and Eric still rides for Royal

    craig Posted: 9 years ago
  53. NO IT DOESNT it comes out this month anyway and I think he rides thunder or independent

    tom ace Posted: 9 years ago
  54. Craig what about a picture of the K6.5 or a picture of the next Rodrigo TX. shoe?
    i think its not to soon to show us a pic. of the next Tx. shoe because you also showed everybody a picture of the Antisocial, way before it was anounced that the next TX. shoe was coming out in November, but probably the K6.e is a little too soon

    Alex Posted: 9 years ago
  55. Tom Ace - Are you saying that you know more about shoe release dates than Craig??? The guy that works for éS? Oh, you are. My bad then.

  58. Man I live in phoenix and the cowtown event seems sick as hell, me and like 6 friends are going to go, its going to be so awesome

    Derek Posted: 9 years ago
  59. Alex- I wanted to show the k6.5 but Eric wanted to add some more tweaks before we started showing it. The shoe is a mid/high with some real nice leather so that means it'll cost a bit more. Eric has been skating in them but you might end up just chilling in them cause they look bad ass. The new Tx is so bad ass looking but that shit doesn't drop until Spring. If you all really want to see it maybe I'll put up a pic.

    Yo, ed get your local shop and rally the other skaters to get a good park. The best example of people getting together is that Louisville park. Skaters had so much to do with that park..that's why that shit is dope. Also, that Kettering Park in Ohio is a good example of a real street plaza that was made a reality by a skater and some major company involvement. If your local gov' doesn't want to do it make your own spots and say fuck the system.

    Derek- Cowtown is amazing and they put on some great shit for sure. Check their site kids for more info http://www.cowtownskateboards.com

  68. no i dont i am stupid.

    me Posted: 9 years ago
  69. As I sit here at work reading this banter of ridiculous contemplation on "Go skateboarding day" I can only come to one viable conclusion. Those that are for it are generally those who have been in it a while, and understand that change is inevitable. We must welcome change in all aspects, because it is something that allows for progress in a growing society. I love skateboarding, and I have been doing it for a long time. I find myself just as excited to be on my board today, as I was the very first day I rode. If we lose sight of the big picture, and close our minds to the possiblities of advancement we will inevitably be in a state of complacency. Let us rejoice for such a holiday as "Go Skateboarding Day", and forever support our wonderful sport. If you are opposed to go skateboarding day, then I say take the day off and protest. We would rather not have to deal with drama on a wonderful day like "GO SKATEBOARDING DAY". Thank you for allowing me to vent. In the words of the great Ronnie Creager "Happy Skateboarding"

  74. hey, sorry, to get off topic, but i was wondering in the footwear section, the black accels with the white sole thing, its the main picture. it looks normal there, but when you click on it, its got like grey and black and white around the rim of it, what is that?

    Geoff Posted: 9 years ago
  75. Geoff: that is just some shiny leather
    by the way Bring back the K3 and the EOS

    Alex Posted: 9 years ago
  76. Alex is correct. Also if any of you guys live near Santa Rosa, CA. don't forget to meet at the bank with bars on 4th St. at 1:00pm tomorrow. That's the first stop on Go Skateboarding Day.

    Josh P. Posted: 9 years ago
  77. Erm, Happy "Go Skateboarding Day!" people, Do we get to eat some wierd skateboard-holiday-associated food, like 3 energy bars in the morning? I think i'm onto something, Make sure you've got some energy bars in those éS stockings in the morning.

    No, I'm serious.

    Frosty clause? Santa crankers? No? okay, i'll goto bed now.

    Mr. Gallon Posted: 9 years ago
