  9. Obviously they like to do more than just scooter. Most pros scooter and that's it, they look like they get it in on and off the concrete. Plus isn't that like the pro lifestyle??? Beer bitches and philming? -riley

  18. scooter riders need to GROW THE FUCK UP. get the fact that we want to see scooter riders at a later age, to get rid of this "kid" sport stereotype we need more companys like addict, elyts that are displaying more older riders and not acting like a bunch of pussies, MAN UP.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Why hate? All of them throw down......and the pics show jow they have fun when their not riding...chicks and a stripper pole? Any one who hates that is a little weird...sorry haha

  20. For each one who think its a bad flyer i say: - Its not more a kids sport! Shut the fuck and wake UP! Ride the streets and get fun and dont care about a stupid flyers. Its a funny flyer, just only this. People common dont fight for a flyer! We're living for get fun and ride and for do party and know girls. THAT's ALL.

  21. the sport is going to need more in your face advertising in order to grow and reach an audience that isn't you 8 year old sidewalk spark scooter shredders...
    but this ad definitely needs pictures with a lot more taste than some shitty party pictures. I dont mind that they are party pictures and all that jazzz but they should not be so shitty looking and go with the rest of the ad.

  22. i know its not a kids sport but thats still unprofessional to put in a flyer, whatever they do is fine but in a flyer???

    ReplyDelete
  23. who gives a fuck what professional is... its not a profession if your not making enough money to live off it... and if you are and your still putting these flyers out then so be it. thats the great part of growing up you can do whatever the fuck you want!

  24. Every rider is a critic. Not everyone grew up in a cookie cutter neighborhood with white picket fences who parents buy them every new product that comes out. You have to remember Razor came out with a scooter TEN years ago, so riders who have been in the sport for so long are able to drink and go to strip clubs if they damn well please. Yea maybe posting a flyer with adult situations in them on a website where its nothing but a bunch of little kids who talk tough and post racist slurs under the name Anonymous might be risky. But would seeing that flyer really make you want to raid your daddy's liquor cabinet?

    I'm about to be 22 and I seriously think that this sport needs a variety of style rather than just kids who get big headed with they can do a handful of tricks and think that they are hot shit. When all they do is film day edits at their local skatepark. I say grab a fucking beer and chill the fuck out. What are you afraid of change.

  25. Big things are gonna be thrown down, pretty sick set up of riders. Sure the flier could have a less "explicit" material if you want to call it that. But, from what I understand, these guys aren't part of a huge corporate business trying to make tons of money, they're just riding and living life. Have an AZ tour this winter when it's not 1000 degrees out outside!

  26. Drinking?! Girls?! A stripper pole?!

    We're scooter riders! This is absurd!

    Flyers should have NOTHING but scooters, scooter tricks, scooter parts, scooter logos, scooter kids, and more... scooter stuff on them!

  27. L.O.L. to anyone who took me serious..

    ReplyDelete
  28. theres a difference between putting "adult" things on a flyer and putting illegal things on a flier.

    ReplyDelete
  29. It isn't illegal if they didn't get caught fool. Look at skateboarding there's much worse things.
    Keep shredding elyts
    And lol steven

  30. What's illegal about being 21 and Going to a strip club. Not everyone is 15 like anon above me.

    Kids these days

  31. That party was put together by a lot of supporters of scooter riders. They are not "strippers" and we werent at a "strip club" they were actually a lot of people who seen us ride locally and came out to a pajama/lingerie party I threw at my house and the girls wanted a stripper pole to make the bachelor pad complete. Instead of looking at it as how explicit it may be... try looking at it as the potential of how much ppl will show love to scooter riders in the future. Your welcome to the ppl who liked it, and apologies to those who were offended. Thanks again to all for your support, and i will do my best to please as much of our industry as possible in the future.

  32. The party scene is so overrated and this flyer is well, very immature! Look what happened to Tiger Woods. Not so well respected anymore and lost a lot of endorsements as a consequence of poor behavior. Which will probably happen here. But we only learn life's lessons in time! If we were able to learn from other peoples mistakes, I guess it wouldn't be life. I had to learn the hard way myself!

    ReplyDelete
  33. that dude in the green shirt looks 17 ands looks wasted, drunk or sucking on Zigs broken door knob. Do we really need to advertise what riders do in there space time.

    ReplyDelete
  34. This is exactly why the scooter industry/community as a whole is so fucking hard to deal with, its controlled by little fucking kids and the majority of the companies try too hard to appeal to their faggotry. Cunts need to grow the fuck up and stop being so naive. Every time I see the sport moving in a the direction of finally being socially fucking accepted it gets criticized by little shits who have obviously not had any real life experiences yet. Get it into your head, THIS SHIT IS NORMAL IN THIS DAY AND AGE, YOU ARE JUST TOO FUCKING SHIT AT LIFE TO UNDERSTAND THIS.
    You're doing good things boys, I'd prefer not to be called a faggot forever.

  35. And at anonymous talking about golf, really...

    ReplyDelete
  36. Anonymous obviously does not know any of the riders in the flyer and is a despicable ignorant twat to make the comments he made... What do you think they should have had a tea party with old ladies or maybe do a demo at a soup kitchen.. Yeah riders want to see that. Meet the riders, get to know them and then maybe make a comment or shut up, your either jealous or a twat.....

    ReplyDelete
  37. By the sound of Anonymous above he is a skateboard rider scared that scootering will takeover from skateboarding industry. To attack young riders who are trying to take scootering to the next level and have fun at the same time is very lame and cowardly... You need to get a life....

    ReplyDelete
  38. you dont see the bmx or sate industry make all there promotion PG do you? so why does scooters have to be different, if you think its offensive dont look at it simple.

    ReplyDelete
  39. This really isnt proffesional, and isnt gonna help the company to grow. Sad moment for scootering.
    Seriously unproffesional.

  40. Hahahaha who wrote that!! hahaha

  41. Probably the dumbest fucking flyer I've ever seen. You rarely see skate companies putting a bunch of party pictures on their flyers, only Baker boys dist can get away with that and they rarely do it. They focus on actual riding photos which Elyts doesn't have because instead of focusing on riding they focus on the party. Also, being more "grown up" isn't going to get you any where with promoting your company. The market in scootering is little kids, and when the parents see this flyer, they aren't going to want to buy your product or go to a Elyts demo because you have photos of underage drinking (Jon), girls, a stripers pole and a passed out kid. Plus the photos used here suck, did you ask some drunk chick to go around with her party camera and just snap off pics. And try wearing some fucking clothes instead of gym shorts and pajama's, it makes you guys look like a bunch of lazy fucks. Oh and this isn't no "tour" its a team trip. You don't see skate companies going around and making a flyer saying where they will be street skating. Plus the guy who funds Elyts doesn't give a fuck about scootering he just knows there is going to be money in it, he spoils Zig with this huge ass house in San Diego. We'll see how the owner feels when this company crash and burns and he's living in some one bedroom apartment in the low income part of SD. Oh yeah, while the owner is still loaded, maybe he should hire a decent graphic designer.

  42. Oh and who ever said that "By the sound of Anonymous above he is a skateboard rider scared that scootering will takeover from skateboarding industry" is an idiot. Scooter will never and I repeat NEVER be on the level that the skateboarding industry is at now. Scootering is going to blow up and be very successful but the skateboard industry is on a whole other level than any other action sport out there.

  43. Get the fuck over it. Everyone is being such pussies. If you guys are freaking out over this then you all would have died at the best western after sd5. Elyts is older riders which Is what people have been saying the sport needs to grow. And this is what older people do. Should they have have advertised things like they did? Probally not. But everyone is blowing this way out of porportions get over it and go ride

    ReplyDelete
  44. Thats not the point big white. People don't care that they party, they care that they use it for an advertisement. If you really know whats up you would of been at the Best Western the night before Sd3. KC....

    ReplyDelete
  45. Good publicity and bad publicity are both publicity. Look at how many comments are on the other posts and compare that number to this one... just sayin

    ReplyDelete
  46. Problem is already being solve behind the scenes. Most of the companies advertising here have discussed this and are moving money to a more family friendly blog. Steven has shot himself in the foot again with these companies

    ReplyDelete
  47. I've been following Zig Short for a while now. Although I agree his actions expressed in this flyer are harsh. I am entertained nonetheless and interested in seeing what he will think of next to bounce back from this situation...

    ReplyDelete
  48. I like the anonymous comment that states "it's not illegal if you don't get caught" What an idiot, so Murder and Rape is only illegal if you get caught?

    Regarding this flier. As owner of a scooter company and father of an 11year old rider... not the best thing to get me excited about a new company.

    Like it or not, this sport is still predominantly kids under the age of 16.

  49. ELYTS is starting to look like that love to hate them crew. people need to understand the sport is growing and so are the pros. What people really need to be complaining about is why the hell these companies aren't paying any of their pros after ther all these scooters parts they sell to shops. I have a nitch that ELYTS is going to be the Nike SB of scooters and everyone is going to want a pair in and out of the scooter world. With the looks of it they already have a bunch of haters let alone fans, they are bound to be famous. B

  50. So where can you buy these shoes, Big 5? I'll stick with my nikes and adidas.

  51. Hey ELYTS tell us how things go after rehab. Ha Ha Ha! I already heard some of your sponsors are gonna drop you like a hit of ecstasy! Ha! Ha!

    Hey dad up there. I've heard ur kid talk more fowl than those pictures in this flyer. And every sport has more kids than adults. I Meen it isn't anything ppl/adults and children all haven't heard before so quit looking at the negative and please live and let live. And as for the person speaking of rehab.. are you effing kidding urself? Its a party in those pictures not a meth lab with with ppl running around hitting lines. Idk quite frankly I think companies that put a briflip or scooter flip in their adds not only shoot themselves in the leg but end their company with a blow to the head. Love jake show

    ReplyDelete
  53. Jake show, If you are directing your comment to me, you are 100% mistaken. You do not know my "kid" and I can assure you that you have never heard him "talk more fowl than those pictures"... whatever that means. Go back to school, learn to read and write and maybe you will not end up on the welfare line some day.

  54. What company do u own mike

    ReplyDelete
  55. God, why are 95% of scooter kids so fucking lame?

    ReplyDelete
  56. Mike, get over it your kid is going to see underage drinking all the time if he goes to an outdoor skate park, also Jake Show can obviously read an write because he READ your comment and then he WROTE back."As owner of a scooter company and father of an 11year old rider... not the best thing to get me excited about a new company" this is completely irrelevent because ELYTS isn't a company it's a team

    ReplyDelete
  57. Geordiemac said it best so if you have a problem with this ad go read his comment over and over again until you understand. I would also rather see this ad over some 12 year old kid briflip airing a quarter, or any quarterpipe trick for that matter.
