So @Dgk and @bakerskateboards came out with the same graphic pretty much. So we had a best of 3 skate off between myself and CJ. The games were pretty intense to say the least. Lots of fun. Here's game one.... Check the link in my bio. https://www.hellaclips.com/video/hellaclips-exclusive-game-of-skate-part-1/
I'm posting this again because every time I think there is a problem I go back to where I started and realized all the hurtles to get to were I'm at. It makes getting to the next chapters that much easier. Remember... People can help and give advise... But ultimately you create your own destiny. @plusreserve @dgk @dcshoes @silvertrucks @fkdbearings @9fivers @goldwheels @mobgrip @hellaclips 💯
Thank you everyone for the kind words regarding @plusreserve and the release of the @independenttrucks "combi hardware". I really appreciate the loyalty. Here's the thing.... I own a design patent on these. Could I sue come Sept... Sure. Do I truly give a shit.. No. Unless I owned every bolt company in all of skateboarding.. It doesn't really matter. What matters is offering a new product that everyone can use. Something that can do away with having to choose this or that(Allen or Phillips) and make life easier for everyone. When I was creating this.. I had never heard of Universal Hardware. Apparently they did this 17 years ago. No idea what happened there... But now the cat is out of the bag. Here is the design I encourage all bolt companies to use. It's flawless. I also have a utility patent being drawn up now for a single bit(tool) that utilizes this design and will NEVER strip. Sheer testing is done along with other things. I think revolutionizing the bolt game would bring a bigger smile to my face than trying to sue a dope skate company like Indy. Just doesn't make sense. Like I said... I appreciate everyone that has reached out... But let's support all for the sake of skate. 💯
So awesome to see something built from scratch. Ideas to reality. @speedsociety offices/entertainment zone. Coming real soon. Phase 1 almost complete. Shout out to all the people supporting the movement and helping to create a new vision for the automotive community. @gtrcrose @mattzoom all the partnerships we have and that have been with us since day one. #everyoneeats
