More like, "not for sale". I love Geoff and I love Sorry but it's a damn shame what Flip has turned into and where it's headed.

That thrasher cover is so sick. Flying over a gap and then back 50-50. Gnar.

His profile in 411 30 is still one of my favorite parts ever made.

Airwalk ad. lol

That "not for sale" thing was so lame.

Quote about Duffy is pretty interesting...

I'm surprised he has anything left in him. He's been going huge for so long.

In the concept ad look at the old guy behind Jeff, he's TTLY checking out the 3 girls, hahahaha

What's the not for sale thing?

And what did happen to Airwalk? I'm sure it was a respectable company when I started skating (a year or so before that Rowley ad). But now the shoes I see look terrible, and most of the clothing looks like it's aimed at children.

ATM said...

Is there any way someone could scan that Flip tour article from that 2002 issue of Thrasher? I never got to see it.

For a gnardog, Rowley has style, trick selection, spot selection, and consistency. Most of the young bucks don't even have two o' those.

Big ups.

The double set he attempted in Transworld's Uno is one of the gnarliest sets of stairs ever. They used the photo in an Airwalk ad even though he didn't make it. Check it @1:11

That airwalk ad is so fucking sick. Just looks so tight and steep.

I used to rep airwalk shoes pretty much exclusively from 94-96, because they were so good. I always found them really durable. The Jason Lee pro model was definitely a favorite from around that time period. Shame what that company's turned into.

Argee on the airwalk ad! Sick ad. I still have a large print of the Volcom 5050 from Warp Tour 99

Wonder where Vans would be today if it hadn't been for Rowley bringing the vulc-shoes back
