Do you think some established Pro skaters and the industry in general hate companies like Revive or Braile skateboarding?
Or is just fans of skating who are not necessarily skaters themselves that create the hate?
My view is that because they revolutionised the way skating is done and the emergence of YouTube, that some people despise anything that is not done how it was in the 90’s early 2000’s.
They all do their own seperate things and business adventures outside of Revive skateboards yet they still will go and film video parts for the team. Yet still create there own content without being forced by your company to do demos, magazine covers etc. People argue they do not have the Talent yet John Hill was Flow for Birdhouse and have you seen Johnny Gieger the next Rodney Mullen
But I think there is a bit of hypocrisy in that all the 90’s skaters are now building indoor skatepark themselves and being apart of the berrics etc. Which in my opinion is no different than what Braille or Reive do. That and Braille have had pro skaters come to there warehouse and skated with Andy Mac and Bob Burnquist.
I am not a skater just a huge fan of the Skate scene who grew up in the 90’s era. However I am fans of the “goofy” YouTube content of Revive or Braille and I watch old and new skate parts to from the recognised board sponsors.
All I see these companies is they make boards and try and get kids and adults into skating. Plus they have some pretty good pros and have an excellent artist who designs there boards.
Just interested in people’s opinions.
