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!!
