Guess the skate pic they have ripped for the boneless image?
Benny from Birmingham put me onto them. Looks like some (retro) big names have signed up. Elissa Steamer, Danny Way, Hosoi, Tommy G, Kereem Cambell (his boneless down Hubba Hideout is the best!) Damon Way is part of the team but it all looks so shit!! Can’t work out how good people are involved but it’s so terribly executed. Anyone know more about the team?
They have also used the “Skate Society” as part of their whole shtick which is a bit worrying. My immediate feeling is it’s sooooo shit it’s going to fail but for obvious reasons I’m not stoked. Would love to get your thoughts. Px
Mike Mo on The Nine Club Experience this week is going on about his nft project - ABD NFT. He plans on launching it in January. I don’t get it really, which is probably a generational/ common sense thing.
He’s doing NFTs of ‘famous’ skate clips and they come with accompanying bits of tat related to the clip. For example, his exploding stairs Fully Flared opener comes with a piece of the tee he was wearing at the time
He’s going to be doing ‘collections’, the first being all Fully Flared related. Then what, I don’t know (or care particularly). There was talk of an LA Courthouse third collection. Meh. Like I said, I don’t get it.
I’d be interested in the actual figures. Easy enough to put these ‘things’ up for sale, but are they selling? The NFT SubReddit isn’t exactly thriving, and the one post I can find about skateboard NFTs is from two months ago and hasn’t even been looked at.
I wonder how often the Tony Hawk Pro Skater game was referenced?
I bet there’s more demand for this shit out there than we realise. Reddit probably isn’t where this is happening. It’ll be like when you find some skater on TikTok that has 20 million followers for doing shove-its in massive shoes.
I was wondering the same, but a quick Googs tells me…
“NFTs are tokens that we can use to represent ownership of unique items. They let us tokenise things like art, collectibles, even real estate. They can only have one official owner at a time and they’re secured by the Ethereum blockchain”
I’ve now got to look up wtf a ‘Etherium blockchain’ is.
