    If it follows the usual, it'll be when the kids go back to school.

    So, early September.

    Want to quickly find something out regarding turning pro in skateboarding:
    I've wondered this a few times, but got reminded from the post in the ladies' thread regarding the trendy "turning pro" surprise.

    Surely skateboarders would need to have discussed certain things, e.g. contracts, to actually turn professional - so it's not really a surprise when they all line up with a board (the graphics of which could well have been chosen by the skater themselves).

    So it's more of a "your new board came off the production line a week early" thing as opposed to "you now have a job that you never had/haven't discussed a salary for"

    Is this a well-known bit of info and I'm just ignorant and out of the loop? If so, sorry for being thick.

    A lot of the time it is a genuine surprise, at least in the UK and smaller American companies

    Maybe it is a little different with big contracts on companies like Element I don't know

    Don't they have to have a bit of notice so that they can inform Mcd's that they're quitting?

    It's all starting to seem a bit contrived.

    At the moment though with the vast majority of people being on a big shoe company if they are at a top am stage on the cusp of going pro they're going to be paid enough to not work or work a small part time job so are already a 'professional skateboarder' just without their name on a board. That's where the most money is these days, in fact most ams will be on some sort of wage from their board sponsor as well

    right. Suppose that explains lack of surprise-you're-pro videos for shoe companies.

    I'd bet Nike would make a good one though.

    when you get on a board team usually the boss or team manager will tell you the deal with turning pro.

    if you don't like it you should find another team at that point imo.

    like haven said i would imagine it's more akin to getting a payrise, not much to need to discuss before getting the board. I would guess that anyone who gets a pro board as well knows in the back of their mind that it's going to happen at some point.
    Trust me I'm a stomach

    Just watched the nine club with Boo Johnson, dude was wasted, but anyway... He was talking about weed maps etc and mentioned he has all sorts of edibles. I hate smoking with a passion and generally am not into getting wasted in any way nowadays but have been interested in some mellow edibles for a while but know literally fuck all about any of that culture. Anyone on here know anything? Maybe after something I can get online, not fussy about the food particularly, but kind of fancy something mellow when i'm working on some music maybe.

    In terms of buying pre made edibles you can do it online via the dark web, they will have different strengths. If you don't want to go down that route I suggest sourcing some weed/hash and making you're own, that will usually involve making 'cannabutter' and you can find plenty of recipes for that online

    Have you ever smoked weed before?

    I think that will dictate slightly how much you should be having at first because edibles hit you MUCH harder than smoking a joint and lasts far longer. With a zoot you can have a few puffs and stub it out if you get too stoned but edibles you're in for the long run

    If you've never smoked before have about 5-10mg of THC which if buying from the dark web you'll be able to know the strength, making them yourself with street weed will take a bit more experimentation. Buy £20 worth and make a bit batch of whatever and slowly nibble on them I'd say. They take about an hour to kick in so go slow

    Yeah of course but have not for maybe 15years+. I'm not new to drugs and what they do, just out of the loop today and how you go about shit. It was all about having a friends hippy auntie make shit for us back then haha. Or just shrooms and acid.
