    Comment


      washing the toilet bowl, the bathtub, vacuuming the carpet in the living room, maybe dusting the book shelves, just putting things in their place etc.

      I have to wash the dishes every day, bleh. Even though I live alone, can't stand seeing dirty dishes in the kitchen sink.

I can. what about weightlifting? you can do it as a hobby, sure why not, but some do it professionally
        Yea but some hobbies you can make a living on, some you can't. Who makes a comfortable living off of rollerblading? (not as in the industry I mean actually going out and skating.) No one.

            That's what I'm saying though, no one made a living off of skiing, or snowboarding, or anything like that. But now they are, look at fucking Shawn White. All i'm saying is that if the mentality of every rollerblader is "we can't change anything," then we won't. I mean it doesn't even effect me, I'm not good enough and I'll never be good enough to be in that position, but that's my opinion for the people who are.

            MOST people can't make a living out of it, but the ones who are talented, dedicated, and mature enough to rollerblade professionally should be able to, just like everything else

              I'm pretty sure if it already hasn't happened it never will. That's just me.

                fair enough, you're entitled to that, but i can see that same quote being used by a lot of people through history that got proved wrong.

                and it's a hobby to me, and that's all it should be, i don't have the ambition or drive to make it any more than that.

                  Skateboarding went through a huge boom, then a big slump, now look at them. We are just too young of an industry at this point.

                          people used to make money from rollerblading, im sure it will happen again. especially if you look at the path every other extreme sport had to follow before breaking through. im positive blading will be big one day, and pros will make money. definitely a hobby for me too, but after meeting some "big names" and hanging out with them a few times it's easy to see the difference between what i do vs. what they do. there are skaters who definitely do work, and despite their small paychecks or no paycheck at all still do it.

                            Actually, yeah several pros do make a comfortable living off of skating. The number should be higher.. but too many people have dumbass opinions like yours and therefore pros aren't treated as well as they should be, and usually have to quit by the time they're 21 and let the new chucker on the block who's willing to chuck himself around for skate-video fame replace them. And what do we get in the end? A really fucking lame image of rollerblading. Thank god to the few; Haffey, Farmer, Aragon, Broskow, Shima, etc, who have been able to stick around and dedicate their life to this "hobby" and make our sport look dope instead of retiring and leaving us back at square one looking like a bunch of corny little fruitbooters.

                                  hey colin you should upgrade to English 2.0 because it's developers have produced more options for circumstances involving the word "their." It now has "there" and "they're" to be used in sentence structures, freeing the reader from having to use context clues. Allow me to demonstrate:

                                  "There seems to be something troubling little Colin"

                                    CK, keep it up. You're doing the right thing. Don't worry about the people who don't believe in what you're doing. It's like you said, at least you'd rather be remembered for making a change, or at least trying. Keep it up dood! I gave up on bladers and the whole blading culture/industry/whatever a long time ago. Just doing it for kicks. Chin up! Also, being 29, im still a grom, just as every blader probably is, and your latest blading gets me more hyped up than watching any OG vid. Much respect. Keep putting your shit out!

                                            This is what I was thinking, he seems to call out everyone else in the Conference except for his brother who's opinion should be the easiest for him to get.

                                            Sadly, there is far more to life than rollerblading.

                                              the problem is that other "extreme" sports had their slump and rise when there was nothing else. now you have instant world wide access to thousands of different sports that are obscure and on the rise. rollerblading was lost in the group of xgames rejects like downhill inline/boarding, skysurfing, and whatever else was tossed to the curb.

                                              now we are in that pool of small sports like razor scooters, heelys, fixed gear tricks, and all sorts of obscure crap. we should all be pretty happpy that there is still progression and products out there for our sport, because last i checked, the only thing you could get for razor scooters was new wheels.

                                              i have made my point too many times on here and have been called many things for making it. but i am happy with blading, it's a small but strong industry. we are tight knit and have a lot of progression in our products. unfortunate that we weren't wise when there was money coming out of our asses, but you live and learn. if it comes around again, more power to it.

                                                  My respect for Colin seems to vary with every post he makes.
                                                  Sometimes he's super idiotic, sometimes he makes complete sense.


                                                  Hopefully Fish or SK come on and answer his questions.

                                                  Also, it's very odd to hear people arguing over people's income, especially when nothing has been put out with the actual numbers.
                                                  Even if the Conference publicized all of their riders wages, most of the skeptics wouldn't believe them anyway.
                                                  That whole debate will go nowhere without evidence, and evidence is one thing we will never have.
                                                  soon.

                                                    There's so much stuff for scooters now, the shop by our local skatepark can cut your bars down to whatever size, they have different brands of decks and wheels, handlebars, etc.

Most of you didnt even skate in the wonder years..96-99...we know how it used to be. Colin happends to disrupt the hurd or the way things currently are and you all react as expected..hatefull and resistant to change. Dude is trying to make money like all of us. Only difference is he actually has the courage and talent to even TRY tom make it in the rollerblading world. "I lost respect for him..blah blah.." you guys are going a little overboard..you dont even know the guy. I have to assume that he is a little more aware of whats going on than most of us

I understand ppl can agree with some of what he's saying, but to go about it like a child isn't going to accomplish anything. Can you blame ppl for bashing CK? Is what he's doing more positive than negative? Ppl are far more likely to ignore him altogether or laugh at him with his juvenile approach. Also, claiming he doesn't care about the money, yet quitting b/c pros don't get paid enough makes no sense. Of course it's about the money. If he was getting paid what he wanted with health insurance, he wouldn't be bitching about anything and it wouldn't matter if USD was skater owned or not.

Guess you didn't see his FB rants, posting on the Create Originals wall 100 times and posting a comment on every pic of himself on their page, as well as talking shit on the USD page. That's smart?

Running a business is extremely hard. Skate owner means nothing if you don't know how to operate like a business man. So many have started skate companies and failed over the years. Ask yourself how many 100% skater owned boot companies are there? why?
