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!!

The industry is so commercialized and full of shit it would be good to have someone rattle cages. That show was lame as fuck and made him look bad but I think we need a asshole to check all these douche fake ballers in the industry

Dude, do they shave you in the summer? What difference would he make there? What do you think it’s going to happen? He’s going to stand in line along with the others and skate. What kind of conflict will he be, how will he “rattle cages”? I mean he ‘d be IN the contest. And now that this campaign is on, probably attract more viewers to it. Do you know this person from up close? You ‘re going to give money to ship him to an overseas skateboaring contest? Fuck tickets bro, people are struggling right now all over the U.S.A. so that future Forrests won’t die. Open your eyes.

yall social justice warriors complaining about his homophobic remarks should just cough up the 2 G’s for sensitivity training.
Wait that would actually involve making an effort and spending your hard earned money on something you believe in instead of sitting on your high moral horses

Fuck this guy. He’s like the step cousin of chris brown. Why the fuck should anybody give this guy money? Talent is nothing when you’re a dick.
