    yea ill be at the charm stop
  • No love for Florida.

    South Florida has been a skating hot spot since.....well, since I started skating back in 85. Yet most tours tend to avoid Florida, and if they do come here they stay on the West Coast. Oh wait....the Swatch Watch Tour did come to Miami in like 88. But that was pretty lame....all though I did get to meet a pre-murder Gator. But I had my brand new silver Lance Mountain Crest stolen.

    ^ Pre-Murder Gator - LMAO

    I can't wait to see Bill Danforth - that guy is TOTALLY, TOTALLY under rated. No disrespect to the other guys but Bill brings it every time with a ton of style.
  • Earlier today, Mike V announced that he has left Element and started his own independent skateboard company named ‘By The Sword Skateboards.’ Hell Yeah!! Do or Die Mike!!

  • im really stoked on him leaving element he needs to take a few others with him
  • @brigade_bill:
    What's wrong with Element ? They don't seem to be too bad as a company ...
    Personally I think Mike V is just not the kind of guy to be doing the same stuff too long, he needs change every so many years. For example, he stopped 'Revolution Mother'too to start a new band.
  • because as much money as they make u would think they would make their boards here
