    Sometimes I sit on my side porch smoking a pipe and reading through this thread mumbling...
    My Quiver?

    Too many boards that I don't ride enough...

    I tried using the email addy in the first post of this thread and it bounces back. So don't try to contact Jake to see if you can get on the team. I'm guessing he might have gotten sacked for not getting all the talent available on this thread for the Gravity team.

    Default Team riders wanted!

    This whole thing has really turned me off from a life of corporate sponsorships, dinners, trips to exotic places, free gear, hot chicks, huge paychecks and all the other stuff that comes along with repping for a brand like Gravity. I think I'm going to walk away from the deluge of requests I get for sponsorship and just go back to the anonymity of riding alone on tiny hills on streets that are forgotten. I hereby formally withdraw my request for consideration of sponsorship.
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    Unless Gravity rekindles interest in this thread and offers up an Arrogant Bastard. Then I'm fully in. That's my price and I'm not budging

    I set my board up for wet skating yesterday and only slammed once.






    Minor damage done.


    Thank you pads.

    I wear my work pants when I skate. Don't want to ruin my 501's. If Gravity supplied me with some skinny jeans I would be happy to wear them for my shoot.


    Happy late fall/winter skating.

    New year, thread is almost a year old, but I haven't given up hope on Gravity starting the "Fat Old Men Who Fall Down A Lot" (FOMWFDAL) team. Gravity, DO IT!! Think of all the great ads you can do with fat old guys.

    additional rules:
    Drink every time someone says, "I'm more about carving than sliding these days."
    Drink every time someone says, "I'm taking it easy, I've got to go to work tomorrow."
    Drink every time someone says, "Sorry I'm late, kids/grandkids had soccer."
    If someone mentions knee braces, back pain or ibuprofen... drink

    If you see someone who can ollie or drop in... finish the bottle
    One pull on the bottle for every rider with a gut or dough belly.
    One more pull for every rider who is balding.
    One pull for every featured song clip that was recorded before 1989 or from an artist that is no longer alive.
    If an inhaler is produced... drink.
    If someone sits down all sweaty and winded or comments, "I'm beat/spent"... drink.
    If a rider's a car costs more than $20k or looks less than 5 years old... drink.
    If someone comments that play time is over because their wife wants them home, finish the bottle.

    My board is fat and old, just like me.



    It could be a Gravity under my Chuck's getting all this publicity. Maybe if someone subscribed to my YouTube channel Gravity would see that there is an audience they are missing and finally sign me to a great.

    Oh, I got a great deal on this Deckcrafters "Killdozer" though and it's super fat.

    I'm looking forward to having it all set up by my personal board technician (PBT) so I can smash things with it. We are waiting on all the parts to come in from my other would be sponsors so I can put...I mean...so my PBT can put it together for me.

    Default Team riders wanted!

    Gravity website currently fails to open and returns an error message. I don't know... If they can't maintain a solid web presence, I'm starting to think I may have to consider withdrawing my interest in their sponsorship.

    My 57th birthday is in 6 weeks. Sure would be nice to get an email from Gravity about starting up the old man team.

    i can haz sponsorship plz?


    Check out my pixels, bro. No GoPros up in here, 640x480 FTW! Also, my awesome stop-motion photo stills!

    If @Milehighmark was still in business, he'd sponsor me so hard that he'd fly out to my house and make me breakfast every morning. I'm the @K-Rimes of sexual stuff. I'm the @justgodown of slamming muff. I'm the @whoisadamcolton of exploring crotch. I'm the @green of enormous socks. Lord, it's hard to be humble when you're perfect in every way...I can't wait to get on my board, cuz I get better at skatin' each day!
    yes, an uber-grippy, square-lipped slalom wheel IS the best for sliding
