you promote yourselves better than any other company… having a team edit form a contest makes them look better than any of those people… and it makes it look like you actually care about skating.. go valo and thank you for these edits and documentation of your travels on themgoods.
to other companys
quit doing things valo doesn’t do.. document your travels. have easy to view easy to navigate websites, have a good team
did I mention that Julien Cudout got 1st and Aragon 2nd? But I guess Valo is happy these days just to make it to a final. It didn’t happen at the World Finals last year, and not at WinterClash, so I’m glad you guys got thrown a bone FINALLY.
It sucks that pros are so happy just to be skating in the finals while amateurs like Julien Cudout, Roman Abrate and CJ Wellsmore are taking over the world. Who’s really pro? The person you call the best in the world or the person who beats them on a consistent basis?
hey, did anyone else notice that there are only six 5 star WRS events this year, and half of them take place in the US? Looks like the industry is trying to stack the deck in the hopes of crowning an American World Champ again. JC obviously ruined their plans by winning Bitter Cold. HAHA
I noticed they changed the line up of 5 star events this year so that there is an equal number of US and European contests (3 and 3). Does this mean the industry is hoping for an American champ this year? hmmmmm
Just to set this completely straight -anyone can put their shit on Itunes. My scrappy little band did it and it took about 4 weeks and £30. Its not an acheivement.
That said, being the 8th best selling documentary on iTunes IS, I am stoked for them.
Also, alley oop topacid on the rainbow, despite being a short grind, was one of about 4 tricks even done on that rail, despite the best in the world skating the park. No one else topsided the rail I don’t think and only Cudot did a hard trick on it (True mis) and Alley oop topacid is way harder.
Man some of y’all are fucking ignorant or just young and dumb. Winning comps isn’t everything to guys who have been killing it for 10+ years. It’s something they do for fun and whether they win or not, they don’t care.

Are you new to the industry or something? These same pros that are “happy just to be skating in the finals” are the same ones that made names for themselves winning comps years back. Obviously the ams are going to skate harder on a more consistent basis, they’re still trying to make a name for themselves, they have more to prove.
I am anonymous so I can say stupid things and be a hater cause I have no balls and no clue. Go anonymous!!! Show how stupid you are. Kids…. thinking like kids acting like kids.
The good thing is that these idiots will hopefully mature and grow a set. By then they will have the wisdom to repsect those that paved the road before them. Or… conversly, they will continue to be spoiled little bastards who’s satisfaction come from steril keystrokes rather than from improving the skating community and industry.
So… anonymous, go to your room and jerk off again. You do that enough and your balls may pop out!! Feking wanker!!

So it follows that tomorrow’s pros will be the ones who make names for themselves winning comps now. To me, that sounds like Roman Abrate, Julien Cudout, and CJ Wellsmore, none of whom ride for Valo. Looks like Valo is NOT the future after all, but at least they won a comp or two “years back.”
you can tell there are noobs on this page. people like you dissing skaters for not winning ruin the sport. there is more to life than winning, its about enjoying the thing you do and having a good run. everybody on team valo rips shit apart if you have 2 eyeballs and even bothered to watch valo4life. they love what they do, u never see them talk about winning comps in interviews.
you guys need to learn a lesson so please read :
IF WHAT YOU LOVE TO DO IS COMPROMISED BY ANYTHING, THEN IT DIES AND CEASES TO BE A PASSION.
