Not once does Wes get a mention.

I am thinking that the beamer is Wes' design and Mark was filmed riding one of the first runs so not sure why he wouldn't give any credit unless it is part of some deal to do these.

Mark says at the beginning of the video that there's no rocker, so this must be a variant on Wes's beamer?  Still, Wes should get some credit.

Total ripoff.
Wes should sue.

Agreed, the mold he's using is the mold that Wes had made by Watson. The Gonz deck is just his variation of the BDS Beamer.

The top of that board the black dude keeps flipping-the blue- appears identical to my first Beamer. He also mentions lengthening the wheel wells. I'm convinced that this is a complete heist and repackaging of something that we've been fortunate to have for years. 
F U, Gonz and Krooked-guess that name says it all...

(Click on the bottom three for video)

This was a Facebooger post from 9/16/16. Mark was skating and filming with a ripper (Jack) from Australia. Mark is a character and really good with the kids. I'm pretty sure Mark has a ton of respect for Wes and loved riding his Beamers.

Yeah sucks for sure and sold out all 300 in no time. I would assume Wes knows what is what with the deal...I would hope . I have been trying to find a way to send a message on the Krooked website to mention the lack of credit that I think is due ......but can't find a contact link anywhere.


 I guess if I was on facebook I could leave a comment on his page....but I'm not..lol.

At ElGato 3, Gonz was riding what looked like the shape of Wes's beamer and I asked Gonz when I saw him at the Faction show that night if he was riding a BDS Beamer and he said no that's mine and I'm going to be putting them out on Krooked. I'm a fan of Gonz too but I agree at least some nod to Wes's design/innovation.

 Wes gave him one or two of the beamers at least ....there is footage of him riding them . For him to go about this am claim what he has is not right for sure.

Here he is riding one of Wes's beamers in 2014 . In fact I am pretty sure it is the same deck he is riding in the photo posted at the start of this thread. Same wheels,grip and stain color on the top .
