You've seen it on the Lakai site , on Crailtap and four pages full of message board, but it's hard to believe. I still don't believe it, even after Crailtap's Aaron Meza e-mailed me back "He gone..."
I followed up by e-mailing Kelly Bird and he wrote me, "It's true. Not sure what he's doing, but it's definitely not another company under Podium. It should all air itself out over the next couple days," and followed up by writing, "Sort of happened quickly, but will create a better situation for both Lakai and Eric going forward. We're all friends at the end of the day." I'm still incredulous, but I guess we'll have to wait to hear what happens over the next couple days. Berrics shoes?—Josh Brooks
P.S. If this news makes you feel sad, go here to see the dude from Eastbound & Down use skateboarding to never become a slave (poached this off the Lakai site, but, still, it's hilarious).
