    Classy sendoff, unlike some others in recent memory...

    smh

    Although Jon Miner has also moved over to Element so maybe they are actually giving the shoe thing a proper go? Thing is surely nobody from another board company is going to skate Element shoes?

    Video output from the Element camp definitely going to become a lot more legit though

    Fuck leaving Emerica for Element Shoes. At least go somewhere where there'll be some guaranteed stability, like Nike, Adidas etc.

    Also how'd you know Miner's joining Element as well? Saw he left Emerica but that was just announced this morning.

    Element makes me so depressed. Literally the worse board company, only rivalled to Revive and Braille.

    It's great that Westgate is getting a good payday and all but Element is the fucking graveyard of talent.

    It's like all those TV presenters who train up at the BBC then fuck off to ITV when they get a better offer. Don't think I've seen any Westgate footage without a green filter on it.

    I'm not into Elment but they ain't all that bad, they've just become fairly dull, I'm not angered by the sight of their graphics or anything.

    Ha no I don't 'hate' much at all but it seems a shame when Emerica did a lot for him. Though who knows how that translates into actual cash. He's got kids eh

    Yeah I can see your point, as with Reynolds Emerica have certainly helped everyone view Westgate in the best possible light with all their quality video output etc but then he's also made them look super legit down the years as well.

    I dunno. Unlike a lot of board companies, they've consistently put out some decent videos:

    Neither have I, but Jon Miner deserves it in my opinion. He's given Emerica such a strong, unique identity which has defined them for years - any of their videos are instantly recognisable as theirs and there's probably only 1 or 2 other companies you can say that about. You can't watch any of the parts without it being an Emerica part too, it's more than just skating. He's beyond just pure filming/editing ability, you can see there's an overall vision to what he's making - what he produces is art in its own right.
