After our top 10 skaters to follow on Twitter yesterday, this could not have been timed better. Alex Olson dropped a comment on twitter that Eric Koston too offense to. Koston responded in part with “Do u remember when we used to skate The Berrics and have FUN? When was the last time you genuinely had fun?? When was the last time you weren’t a BITTER LITTLE SPOILED FUCKIN’ BRAT???” (read the full response below). The battle has created quite a stream of conversation with Koston getting the majoirty of backing from the crowd… How can you not back Koston? You can follow the Koston stream or the Olson stream.
“Really Alex @olsonstuff? U consciously posted this? Do u remember when we used to skate The Berrics and have FUN? When was the last time you genuinely had fun?? When was the last time you weren’t a BITTER LITTLE SPOILED FUCKIN’ BRAT??? That’s fine, you don’t like The Berrics I get it. But I’m not gonna sit here and let YOU INVALIDATE ALL THE COUNTLESS HOURS OF HARD WORK THAT STEVE AND OUR EMPLOYEES DO 7 DAYS A WEEK, TO KEEP THE SITE RUNNING! Believe it or not Alex, myself and Steve’s main purpose with The Berrics, is for the greater good of skateboarding in a whole. I plan on using the 25 years of experience as a skateboarder, to help skateboarding grow for as long as I possibly can. The Berrics is one of the outlets that’s going to help me achieve that goal. So if you think for a second that you and you’re shitty fuckin’ tumblr blog is going to STOP US? YOU’RE CLEARLY MISTAKEN. Instead of spending time and energy trying to tear us down, why don’t you focus it on that professional skateboard career that you’ve manage to neglect for the past 3 years. You’ve earned a great opportunity, don’t waste it. ”
