Default I am a Snob

I don't like or skate inlines.
I don't like or skate on ice.
I feel like inline skating diverted the resources of quad skating's most talented athletes, manufacturers, and promoters.
I feel that ice skaters have MORE than enough forums, magazines, sponsorship, government grants, endowments, international organizations, and promoters as it is.

I could care less if its snobbish or not.
I'm not interested in being an advocate for any of the other skating that's going on. Just quads.
And I'm not ashamed to say it.
Rollerskating has a long rich history, that's in real danger of being lost if quad skaters don't step up to promote their passion.
I don't look down upon any of the ice or inline skaters, but thats not my passion.
Let them worry about it.
If thats called being a snob, I'll take that name. Gladly

You may as well call it loser magazine in that case .
I havent got a lot of money to throw at anything
good luck gettin blood out of stone though swisher :

but this could be a good idea an online magazine where skateloggers can chip in a couple of dollars each to get it all started and advertisers can sell thier skate gear.

Maybe call it skatelog forum

Good luck if you wish to create a magazine!
I did it in France in 2001, a lot of money to invest...

My only advice: be sure to get the support of major brands before you start or else it won't last long.

But we had one magazine in Aus that wasn't corrupt ,and it didn't last long
we chatted to the owner of that mag and the major brands would not lend him test bikes in the end because he was too honest.in the final issues he ended up advertising to the public to bring their new bikes in so he could give an unbiased test/ shootout. We had a lot of dumb Aussies buying ktms with severe head shake and husqvarnas that face planted their owners into the ground ,kawas hondas and suzukis were burning out valves {corrupt advertising}. The smart guys were passing the broken down European brands on the wr 450 and 250 Yamahas.but the other bike mags wouldnt put the yamys first place in the shoot outs until yamaha built a dud 450.Opposite way around .We all had a laugh and thats why i would never start a magazine unless i could buy all the test bikes outright.
