Thomas Vanderham - From The Collective to Return to Earth
Still to this day I wonder what would have been if Thomas committed to the racing WC. If your not from around these parts you probably would know but TV was fast as fuck. Influenced by the shore, Shandro , Watson, Wade etc etc he sorta got pulled into an emerging “free” scene. The legacy of video and photo shoots he has put together will last forever. Remember this. Thomas went huge before anybody. The whip? Pfffft. We all know. If you read this Thomas ... thanks.

@torypowers: you have completely missed the point. The crowd watched a bunch of women just having fun. The sport is not being pushed. They aren’t as good as men. 25+ years of women and no significant improvement. The point is equal pay, equal venues etc. You may disagree but realize you’ve missed the point. Until women completely accept the risks involved they can’t push the sport. My comments were not sexist at all. Simple facts. I didn’t say they can’t improve,, they simply haven’t. Did you see the timeline? 25 years. A qrt century... no significant improvement. That whole time women have been saying the same thing, ‘just Pushing the sport’. I/we do our best to encourage women but that’s all we can do. The rest is up to the women as a whole. Accept the risk. Train. Execute the same tricks(or anything remotely close) on a massive course, receive equal pay and coverage. This argument isn’t about two people with the same credentials doing the same job and the man paid significantly more. That’s sexist and wrong. Women aren’t pushing the sport! Period. Maybe you haven’t been around long enough to witness the facts. When it comes to slope style type riding...there has been no progression whatsoever. We can and do encourage, but why lie. So here’s how this always goes. women say they are pushing the sport and limits. Then they say the want equality in pay and exposure. Then someone like me/us says but your not equal and points out the obvious. Then we are told they are out there just having fun??? That we are sexiest and that our comments are dampening female progression. Repeat. Aaaand repeat aaaaaand repeat year after year. Take some responsibility. Face the facts. Until the margins tighten on skill level, professional compensation and exposure will be miles from equal.

Why would women get equal pay. The top women have barely progressed in 25 years. I realize I’m gonna get smoked for that comment but it’s true. 3 women jumped the big jump line. 3! At some point women need to put their money where their mouths are and stop talking about pushing the sport and it’s progression because it’s not evident. Why would event organizers put a red cent into women’s events when there is no return because the skill level is crap. It’s embarassing to the sport. Ladies, your not going to get paid equal for one footers and x ups. Every time the mic is in your face it’s the same bullshit. I’m just trying to push the blah blah blah. Nothing has happened in 25 years. Racing ok,,, I’ve seen some progression for sure. More women in the sport... yes and that’s great. Overall the women as a whole have got better at RIDING. Competing in these events.... there are 11-12 year old boys that are light years ahead of these pros... and they go to school 5 days a week. Equal skill=equal pay.... that’s the equation.
