Oh I know Wes gave him the boards and there is footage of him riding Wes's beamers. That's why I was a bit shocked when he told me they were his new boards cuz it looked exactly like a Wes Beamer. and ive seen the youtube vids of him riding Wes's beamers in NYC.

I just lost a lot of respect for The Gonz! This is obviously a 100 per-cent, Wes Humpston design rip off! Krooked now has these up for sale.

Haven't found them on sale anywhere. SoCal were supposed to have some but I've not seen them available.

Yea that's pretty sad but people been doing it for 40+ years, I've had many people over the years tell Me they just coped one of my boards right off a shop wall?    So that's why I think the skate board industry in BS, just Monkey See Monkey Do for a dollar.

I remember a cool Gonz hoodie from some years back with the graphics being about money being the "Rute of all Evil."  Maybe that's why he's calling it the Pure Evil Beemer?


Krooked is Number Two.

It looks to me that deck is the same shape and came out of the same mold as the BDS beamers. Does Watson make decks for Krooked? If so Watson should of asked Wes if they could produce the decks for Gonz IMHO. It appears to me Gonz is selling the decks as if he has come up with a new innovative design. Not cool!

Does Watson make decks for Krooked? Well if they didn't they do now.

If the Gonz deck has no rocker, like Gonz says in the video, then how can it be Wes' mold?

Still, even if he had his own mold made, it ain't right.  The shape, dimensions and beam are all the same as Wes'.

Maybe Gonz meant that no rockers died while ripping this board off
