He might not have won Street League or any money this weekend in Barcelona, but he won our hearts. Like any great gladiator, he’s not the best because he wins quickly, he’s the best because the crowd loves him. Skateboarders everywhere supported him and got him to Barcelona, and he delivered (at least, in pure comedy). For the people, by the people – there is only one. #TEAMFORREST
UPDATE: One of our readers remixed the clip to WWF and it’s fucking perfect: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsoldIxa4-Y

I thought Forrest was only flow?

He was turned pro when he was put on Threat and when Threat disappeared, Jamie Thomas put him on Zero (flow). So I’m not really sure why they labeled him as pro.

Once you’ve reached the pro circuit via a board brand, there’s really no way to lose that status

If you don’t think that’s the attitude and behavior of a true pro you’re fucking wrong.

Exactly as Ryan A said. Seems like people are clueless about it. Once you receive your pro status, you’re always gonna be pro until you retire, nevertheless if you get flow sponsorship deals afterwards. Status and sponsorship deals are two separate things.
