I met Lucas on the frontlines at the ASR luring
in big buyers and smiling for media like me. (Well, I'd like to
think of it as flirting since I was probably the only female media
there.) Lucas is Domestic Sales V.P. for Arcade Skateboards. Isn't
And speaking of Sales Reps, November would be a good
month to give major props to our intrepid skateboard sales reps
of the world. November being the busiest month stocking all those
shop shelves in time for the santaman.
Sales reps are an awesome bunch. They are hardworking,
underpaid, and have to deal with a lot of shit from buyers sometimes.
Some are expected to get involved with collections, credit problems,
determine who gets term contracts, who gets COD contracts, and who
is even a real company a wholesaler can legally sell to and not
some kid pretending to be a retail store selling out of the trunk
of his car, etc. It can be nasty! And of course, they've gotta keep
their pros and fans happy; and of course, the media too!
But, besides being the backbone of their company, they
have their perks too. They are required to attend all the trade
shows, all the parties, the video premieres, skate with the pros
to make them feel important, help their bathing suit models with
those little things they call suits; hard work you know. They have
to carry around business cards, safety pins, skate tools, first
aid kits, and the number of the company attorney and bail bondsman!
Kidding aside, shout outs to all SALES REPS! They are
hunks. And Lucas, thank you for being my hunk you are the hunkiest
of all reps!
You are so cool!

friend in the whole world Hunter Criazzo, everyone else out there

everyone to know that realskate.com rocks. Thanks again and I love
