The following email arrived today through the Altamont web site's contact form.

can i send my sponsor me tape to your company? and do i have to skate rails to get on your team?

From: rashaad


Why, yes indeed, you do have to skate rails to get on Altamont. Exclusively. In fact, you have to pull the ever-elusive 1080 to fairy dance down a 50-stair rail on fruitboots while wearing a spandex Jazzercise outfit filled with sand, motor oil and salmonella-tainted peanut butter. Then and only then will you be man enough to be sponsored by the 'mont!

    despite his dumb bass second question, you should answer his first question. i'm sure tons of kids 'cross the internet universe would love to bombard you with sponsor tapes.
    here and now, let 'em know if it's worth trying.

    and they need to be smokin' a cig and drinkin' a coffee during the fairy dance. it's the only way to skate if you love Altamont

    "This little kid's just tryin to talk to a few people he looks up to."

    These "sponsor me" kids send the same "sponsor me" email to every company in the industry. The thought of skating for fun has probably never occurred to them. Shit gets old.

    Yeah about fourteen years ago I was involved with a company that was pretty small back then but is now the biggest sell out of them all the skate brands.

    Back in the day the only way that you could even get a sticker from this company was to know somebody or go to a contest and catch one.

    Fucking underground smooth.
    Everybody wanted a part because it was the real thing, the embodiment of who the fuck we are and what the fuck we do.

    Sadly those days are gone. Now a days as I am waiting for my coffee, every sixteen year old girl with fake tits and a lap dog has got this fucking stamp all over them.

    It makes me sick. I used to get this gear free and now I won't even wear that garbage.

    Andrew hit the nail on the head when he talked about the kid at school back in the day that was the skater and you could tell by his look because it was his own gig.

    That was me and my friends twenty years deep.

    Now that look is Hannah Montana . I feel like those bastards in corporate suits fucking raped our style when it finally suited them.

    Don't give up who you are just because you don't like the original god gave you.

    I told you boy, you wernt cut out for this type of thing.

    Trade that there board skate in for a shovel and while you're busy digging your grave you can dig all of theirs too.

    Fuck em all
