If you are like us, you know that Forrest Edwards is the best thing to happen to skateboarding in a while.
Infamous for his stint on SLAP’s 2010 One In a Million
reality show contest, for dropping “not that gay” hammers while “not really trying,” and for his legendary answers on the Weekend Buzz show, he was recently invited to Street League to win the big bucks.
Problem is, that he’s a broke-ass dude whose flow sponsors won’t pony up enough dough to fly him to the Pro Open event in Barcelona.
Yes, yes, Street League is hyper-commercialized and makes you want to focus your board while puking Monster™-green vomit all over your computer, we get it, and that’s exactly why we should get Forrest out there, so he can show them what’s what. He’s the hero Street League needs, not the one it deserves, our dark knight.
Help support our beloved anti-hero, a guy with little chance to be successful outside of skateboarding, survive for just a little bit longer and have a shot at winning the contest and making Nyjah cry.
We’ve started an Indiegogo campaign to help make this happen:
We’re trying to get just enough money to fly Forrest out there, but tickets aren’t cheap. We’re putting up some cash, his sponsors are throwing in a little, and the rest is up to the Forrest fans, so let’s make it happen! Donate $10 or more and get a little somethin-somethin special for yourself too!
UPDATE: We heard that when someone told Forrest Edwards we were starting this campaign to get him to Barcelona that his only response was, “Oh, that’ll probably make them look pretty cool, huh?”
UPDATE 2: FUNDS RAISED!!! We’ll be seeing him out there!!
DOES SIZE MATTER?
I hit up physical therapist Dr. Kyle Brown for some insight on whether or not our height plays a noticeable role in how we skate.

JOSH KALIS ON BUILDING AN INDOOR SKATEPARK WITH GRANITE FROM LOVE PARK
"Laying the granite tiles was the most torturous part because you’re on your knees. It was a month straight of doing 1,600 tiles."

Forest is an amazing skater but his attitude has put him where he’s at and that’s at the bottom.

Do you realize that on that show they made him look really bad? They edited that show so he looked like the bad guy. Everyone hates because he does what he wants. And that’s what’s it’s about.

Catch him on Weekend Buzz (and pretty much everywhere else) being super homophobic tho. He just seems like a piece of shit human in general.
If Chris Joslin said racist shit all the time on camera would you (read: everyone in this thread) be all “yeah but like he’s pro he made it bruh stop hating” and go buy his shit?
May 5, 2015 4:53 pm
he deserves to be there. all bullshit aside, his talent speaks for itself.

May 5, 2015 5:14 pm

May 5, 2015 5:23 pm
Stfu he kills it more than any of your nike fags
May 5, 2015 6:48 pm
i don’t own any nike gear at all idk what you’re talking about. he’s a good skater but skateboarding shouldnt cater to scummy, terrible people.

Shrek Your still a little bitch hating on someone else success. Bitch ass Hater (Go Fuck yourself). I hope someone puts you in your place you little bitch, trying to talk shit on someone that’s way better then you’ll ever be at anything.
May 5, 2015 5:34 pm
Kids are stoked on him. They don’t give a shit if he’s a homophobe or not.
May 5, 2015 6:49 pm
well then it’s the kids who need to get whacked.
May 5, 2015 8:55 pm
shrek shut the fuck up you stupid bitch.. Just because you like it in your ass doesn’t mean everyone else needs too. To each is own, if if I don’t like your fagget ass then that’s my choice, just as everyone else. Watch one day your gonna have a kid and they’re going to have they’re own feelings about that stupid shit too, unless you brain wash them, instead of letting them be free to believe in what makes them happy or not.
May 5, 2015 7:33 pm
Shut up faggot, you probably like dick in your ass.
May 5, 2015 8:58 pm
Shrek.. like I said just because your a fagget doesn’t mean the rest of the world is… also who the fuck do you think you are.. You are fucking nobody.. Go sit your little internet gangster ass in a corner because you don’t have any following you or even slightly interested in what your doing… Fagget!
May 5, 2015 9:06 pm
And first of all.. to most Catholic and Christian skaters should be condemned to them… and if your such a peaceful person why are you taking the time to hate on this successful human… doesn’t he deserve to have his own beliefs even if he may be wrong just as any of you holly fake ass people.. fucking born again pussy’s. Open your mind, Not a bible!!! You stupid hypocritical bitch!!!
May 6, 2015 7:34 am
is he homophobic because he uses the word “gay”? if something sucks ass then people say that its gay. get over with it. if you dont like this then dont be gay yourself. i used to defend gay rights A LOT untill all this pro-gay bullying has started and has made people afraid of the language they use. im fucking fed up of being bombarded with gay propaganda on every single media available. unless its a massive conspiracy to reduce earth’s population by turning everyone gay, it has started becoming annoying. chill out a minute and get on with your problems.
