I thought concrete killed expresses...

Dec 12, 2006 mnsoaperns

That doesnt mean you cant have fun on them man its not like they will wear out in a day or something keep in mind these shoes are meant to be fun.

Dec 12, 2006 broox

plus, i have a few pairs of them.

Dec 12, 2006 Kru

Plus be a slippery piece of concrete to grind on, or it was waxed. Cause usually these plates just snag on the concrete like it isn't funny. Make you do a faceplant if your not careful haha.

Nice farf too.

Dec 12, 2006 Kru

plus... suppose to be Must. How the hell did I pull that off?

Dec 12, 2006 broox

this ledge has been skated a lot. it's really really waxed up. it slides nice.

Dec 15, 2006 AnthoFlex

He loves dem Backside Farfs!

I went to Journeys and asked them if they can order Soaps from HSL. What I got was the biggest bullshit story ever concocted in the matter of two minutes. The moral of the story is, don't ask about Soaps at Journeys ever ever ever ever ever.

Dec 16, 2006 AnthoFlex

No this i wanna hear, Send me the WHOLE story at AnthoFlex@yahoo.com

Dec 16, 2006 matrix8967

yeah man, same thing here. Journey's are assholes. they have the most re-dick-a-lick-alous policies. they got on to me for "loitering" and because i said "shit"
and becuase i asked for soaps...


Dec 16, 2006 SonicSoaper

Yeah. Even PacSun, who were one of the biggest Soap suppliers in America, doesn't have a clue what Soaps are.

Dec 16, 2006 AnthoFlex

Yea, the guy laughed at me when i asked him (at pacsun) if they sold Soapshoes....He was like "I havent seen those in YEARS! HAHAHA"

Dec 16, 2006 SonicSoaper

But then you get the cool guys who at least try and are very nostalgic about SOaps.

Dec 18, 2006 AnthoFlex

Was this for Team Heelys too or just for fun?

Sick pic! lovin the yellow evos!

Mar 24, 2007 SonicSoaper

Would be better with some Expresses or something but whatever. It's all the same shoe when it comes to HSL.

Apr 26, 2007 SpiderSoaper

ha, if anthoflex remebers what i told him on myspace, i too asked journeys if they had soaps, they looked at me stupidley, and the dumbasses thought i wanted actual cleaning soap..

Feb 5, 2008 Kain

awesome shoe, awesome grind

Feb 8, 2008 Kain

What's with the megas on that ledge?

Feb 9, 2008 RamenRadio

Derek was heeling and took the wheels out so he could grind the ledge

Feb 9, 2008 Kain

He heels?

.....j/w, b/c the evos come with Big Deuce...the only way he would've gotten megas is to buy them separately, and I've never heard of a soaper doing that....

Feb 9, 2008 RamenRadio

He's on Team heelys too, he can do whatever he wants.

Feb 9, 2008 RamenRadio

He doesn't have a lot of Heel footage though.

He has tons of soap media, but he does heel. They probably just let him on because he's Captain of Team soap.

Same with Zach Larson.

Feb 9, 2008 Kain


lol. Well, there's proof that soaps and heelys can coexist....

Feb 9, 2008 RamenRadio

Not necessarily.

Derek Zach and everyone is working and doesn't have time to do much of anything anymore. Not many people knows what to think of them anymore.

The only people who are interested in anything are just Dario Sal and Ryan Armstrong.

Feb 9, 2008 RamenRadio

It's upsetting really, all were such great soapers. Not the best, but they were pretty good guys.

Feb 9, 2008 Kain

What about Antho?

He's still around helping soap

Feb 9, 2008 RamenRadio

Yeah, he sure does.

Feb 9, 2008 Kain

I want to come to that demo, but....

1. I'm not as good at soaping as you guys, and you'd probably all flame me when I got there b/c I'd be wearing my evos and heeling on the ramps most of the time.
2. I'm going to Philly not too long after that to skate with a friend for a couple days over spring break.

Feb 9, 2008 Spano565

First of all everyone goes to demos to have fun not criticize other people for having heelys or not being as skilled as someone else.Because everybody there well most people that are gona be there are mature and don't act like a little kid so if you think your mature and want to have some fun then by all means go to the demo.

Feb 9, 2008 Kain


But still.....really small chance of going...
The Philly trip's gonna cost a lot.

Feb 9, 2008 Revengasaur

Are there EVER soap demos on the west coast? Maybe I should start doing them.

Feb 10, 2008 RamenRadio

California dude. Team relate is in california!

Remember the videos dario put up on the darconet soap video archive?

oNe and tWo are the name of the videos?

Those soapers live on the west coast dude! If you wanna get in contact with them, send me an email and I'll give you some information :D

I replied to your email btw.

Feb 10, 2008 Soapdreamer

hphhphpttpp WHAT! You mean the people from the one and two vids lived in california the whole time i was looking for someone to show me what soaps were like so i could show my parents .(sepember-december) To late now i live in arizona. :(

Feb 10, 2008 AnthoFlex

Travis, don't give away Team Relate's email addresses so easily, it encourages spamming.

Think up of an alternate system

Feb 10, 2008 xJeremiahx

Yeah dude. When I was watching one and two I recognised several of the spots.

Feb 11, 2008 RamenRadio

I don't have their emails Renny.....

I don't even need their emails haha

Feb 11, 2008 RamenRadio

And Renny, I was going to SEND something to him to contact relate if anything.


Feb 11, 2008 Revengasaur

It's funny, I lived in California up until 2006... how did I miss out soaps during the huge boom? I even had a size 11 shoe back in 2000. I could still be wearing all the 1st generation soaps i never bought! (WAAAAAH!)

Dec 7, 2009 Brad

lmao, i love how you can see the wheels taken out of the shoe. to me, that's what really makes the picture.

Dec 9, 2009 sylonbroadsides

haha yeah dude, what I never noticed is that his left foot isn't touching the ledge. I thought that was weird

Dec 10, 2009 Brad
