I think skateboarding as a sport can have as many brands as it wants. But skateboarding as a "thing" can do whatever the fuck it wants because it knows what it's doing and people that know this know what they are doing and why they are doing it.

Bold for the oxymoron.

I think you're better off posting with the other purists in the Junk Drawer. Not sure why you skate, and I know I could care less about the reasons you skate. I will tell you this... I skate because that's what I like to do. It could be the biggest most popular thing in the world and you'd still see me doing it. 

And to be honest; you're the reason "our sport" has seen this big decline in the past few months. Thanks a lot.

Declining? What's declining? What happened? Is it because Chris Cole, that selfish bastard, went to DC? How will this decline affect my enjoyment of skateboarding? Tell me! Tell me! Tell me!

I am extreme as fuck.  I see all these emo-poser-beatnik-pushed back beanie-wearing-hipsters in skate shoes and I am always like "Dude, you don't even skate.  I skate so fuck you man.  You don't know.  You don't know me.  I’ve read things about how things are.  I invented skateboarding.  Go back to Zumiez.  I am a unique snowflake.  I am fucking art.  I fuck art".

Save the industry!  Fuck Corporate America!  Give me neat things despite my own uselessness! Suck the tail pipe of my motor scooter and don’t let my scarf hit you in the face while you’re doing it!

My state of the industry is that there are free concrete parks popping up faster than I can skate them all.   The companies that have marketing that rubs me the right way and products that I have good experiences with get my money occasionally.

Companies, Money, Marketing, Pros, and Posers all come and go. Skating is the only thing that lasts forever. Don't let the other shit get to you and you'll enjoy the ride a hell of a lot longer.
