    Slghtly out of context but relevant quote from Popps from his recent article on Jenkem.

    There are two worlds coexisting and crossing over right now: the competitive and the creative. Should Girl Skateboards have gotten compensation for Alex Olson or Brian Anderson leaving and starting their own brands? That’s a bit different. There doesn’t seem to be any lingering bitterness and it seems all happy and smiley. Anderson is an older pro looking toward the next stage in his career and Olson wanted to think outside of convention and start something entirely new and fresh. Those are good things and coincidentally, the roster spots they vacated have been filled by new pros who have been groomed to populate them. Think I’m lying? Take a look at the marketing of Girl/Lakai in the wake of Fully Flared.vAfter the release of Ty Evans’ opus, several riders moved onto other-often bigger–sponsors and some retired or were cut. Flash forward to Evans’ next mega-video Pretty Sweet, and things done changed din’t they? First off, the Trunk Boyz were put to the forefront, most of which are freshly contracted and some riding for Lakai, while the older pros with non-Athletic Corporation sponsors mostly shared parts. Weird huh? Of course Biebel was an outlier, but do you think Kenny Anderson–a guy who logged so much footage his part could have been six minutes–would have been sharing a part if he skated for Lakai? That’s not saying there’s some devious plan, it’s just marketing folks and just an assumption based on an educated guess.

    That isn't actually Pappalrdo though, is it? Just a journo with the same name.

    The hot chocolate tour was the best bit.

    Les can you normalize with a search term that's popularity is unlikely to change? Something to do with a naked man and women perhaps?

    Backing that comment about Hot Chocolate. Defo one of the only vids that makes me want to grab my deck and just go out and cruise around. Also the best drink around hahaha

    Pretty crazy how everyone left lakai after Fully Flared. Seemed like a solid family vibe

    Dating back from years ago and through until now, Chocolate boards are and always have been superb.
    I don't necessarily have to like a graphic to skate a good board. It does help to have some appeal but I love how flat they are and the shapes.

    Indeed, not many films "that good" get produced.

    Suppose it's not exactly Girl/Chocolate but The Back 40 seems amusing/intriguing. That "future of skateboarding" vid with MJ as the baby was funny.

    The dude has been writing and contributing since slap first started. There's a letter in issue two from him. Dude has paid his dues.
