I just went to a Zumiez contest in Nebraska and there were like 30 people there. People think skateboarding is bigger and there’s more money to be made off of it than there actually is. With everybody in the world wearing the Janoski shoe and how it took off… it made people say, “Wow, a pro skater’s shoe can sell like that!!?” because it had a pro skaters name on it. But his shoe just happened to be like a Chuck Taylor or something. Stefan killed it and made a good, timeless design, but it was a once in a lifetime type thing. That and some of the fashion stuff kind of led people to believe skateboarding is something that it’s not.
To anyone who knows anything about skateboarding Mark Gonzales needs no introduction. To those who don't know, The Gonz is a legend, a fearless and anarchic exponent of a style of street skateboarding probably best described as insane.

Desillusion magazine and Nixon proudly present their latest video instalment “This is Andrew”, a video portrait paying tribute to US street skateboarder Andrew Reynolds. Growing up in a small town in Florida, Andrew started skateboarding at a very young age. Due to his exceptional talent – Reynolds won the first contest he ever entered – he drew the attention of the skate industry and landed on some of the top sponsored teams as a teenager. Following Tony Hawk and others to the Californian epicentre of skateboarding at the age of 18, he met fellow skateboarders like Jim Greco, Ali Boulala and Knox Godoy, later on known as the “Piss Drunx”, ruling the streets of LA.

Als kleiner Junge hatte Tony Hawk psychische Probleme, ein Psychologe seiner Schule hatte festgestellt, dass Hawk ein unterforderter Junge mit einem sehr großen Aggressionspotenzial war. Aus diesem Grunde schenkte ihm sein Bruder sein erstes Skateboard. 1982, gerade erst 14 Jahre alt geworden, startete Tony Hawk als Profi im Powell-&-Peralta-Team, der Bones Brigade. Mit 16 Jahren galt er als der weltweit beste Skater. Mit 17 kaufte er sein erstes Haus, zwei Jahre später ein Anwesen in Fallbrook. Mitte der 1980er Jahre begann seine Siegesserie. Tony Hawk wurde elf mal nacheinander Weltmeister. Er gewann in dieser Zeit 73 von 103 Wettbewerben (19 Mal wurde er Zweiter) und hat über 85 neue Skateboardtricks wie zum Beispiel den Stalefish, den Airwalk, den Madonna, den Gymnast Plant, den Hurricane oder den 900° erfunden. Der „900°“ wird als der schwerste Trick der Welt bezeichnet. Tony Hawk war einer der ersten Skateboarder, nach dem ein Schuhmodell benannt wurde.

The most influential skater in the history of skateboarding hands down is Mark Gonzales. If you disagree with that then you’re wrong. You can pinpoint Mark back to everything, and know that Mark did it first. A, he did it first; and B, he did it like Mark, which is a really psychotic combo. He did it the best. Everything after was not the same. Everything was so all over the place. Look at Mark’s feet on his frontside ollies—nobody’s got that. It’s like his heels are one the board. It’s just the fucking greatest thing ever. -Jason Dill
I only make something when I feel like it's right, or if I have the right materials. I don't use the internet, I find everything I put out by hand, and sometimes I don't find enough material, or I make stuff and then I just don't like it. Also, Fucking Awesome isn't seasonal, it's just there when it's there, and I don't make much of it. I constantly shoot myself in the foot from a business standpoint actually 'cause I make it for sale but at the same time I don't want you to have it. It's a bit of a personality disorder company.
