    True, doesn't mean it's alright though

    Yeah I definitely think it is the strongest it has ever been, I think skating being seen as 'cool' right now and fashion brands jumping on board has raised awareness initially. Then social media has compounded this by making other normal non sponsored girls skating become more visible to other girls contemplating taking it up which is cool.

    Haha!!!

    Stef's cool, lived in Oxford for a summer along time ago, I think, when she first started skateboarding. Also very good snowboarder as well.

    But ... another UK board company?

    She comes off as being very average on a board and that is me being kind as I don't want to look sexist. The name suggests it's going to be aimed at the female skate community anyway.

    Yeah but this is speaking to a rapidly growing female part of the skateboard market who maybe don't identify all that much with Unabomber or The National. The boards and clothes are going to be all over fashion editorial if done right, same way that Palace is

    Is Unabomber still going?

    I understand your point, just have no idea how some of these brands are still going. She will smash it with soft-goods, I can't imagine it not doing well in that aspect.

    Not sure if I have heard of her so googled and don't recognise her from anywhere.
    Regardless, I like that board and the name, for a female centric brand.
    I think us oldies have to get used to the narcissism, it's a new world. I can't keep hating people so much, sometimes you just have to let it go. That Eli Reed show certainly made it shown that even the most on the face of it, seemingly vacuous people can be totally normal people just with totally different opportunities.

    Blondey comparison is just bizarre or some sort of joke that's gone over my head.

    Her being really good or bad is neither here nor there when starting a board company though, unless she plans on turning herself pro. Not cussing anyone or standing up for but it is funny how the topic has gone straight to whether she is good enough to be sponsored when the thread is about starting a board brand. Classic go-to when discussing a woman on a board.

    I can't really see the company appealing to me and I'm not about to watch any of her Vlogs about fashion but I could definitely seeing it being a seller, especially to parents of girls/younger kids/boys that spend a lot of time on tumblr.

    Literally every picture on their respective IG profiles is of themselves.

    They both skate and are both second rate models/artists.

    I was half joking but I think it's actually a pretty good comparison.

    I know Stef a bit and like Neddy said, know that she is a really nice, friendly person in real life.
    She's also a full on skate-rat who thinks nothing of driving from Plymouth to slam on her head in dirty skateparks across the country.

    I agree with Haven also - this company deffo has potential as she's big on Social Media, has lots of connections in the fashion world and the female skate scene in general is really healthy at the moment.
    Pontus used to flow her Polar boards too as far as I know.
    Her actual personality and that of the projected 'Social Media' one are obviously different too.

    Interesting nonetheless

    No idea, stopping paying attention years ago

    Yeah that's true, soft goods will do very well but hardware will be an interesting one. Hard to tell what the cross section is of girls who skate but are also into stereotypically 'girly' aesthetics or more girls get into skating because they are disillusioned by and dislike everything pink and fluffy and cute

    Anyone with a chunk of instagram followers will shift product 100%.

    I just feel the UK is full of brands like Unabomber already, doing a fuck all and still kicking around.
