Supra Footwear went out of business about a year ago, Boardstation reported. Chad Muska is one of a few people who has remained absolutely silent about the end of the company.
Now he speaks clear words.
So far, he, the Muska, has not had the strength to speak publicly about the event. For him, the end owas the scariest moment of his career so far. In the corona pandemic, he started building a concrete wall in his house:
I snapped and started to build a concrete retaining wall, I think it was because I knew I had to sell my home I could no longer afford, so I started renovating it myself.
As I built the wall I was able to focus on my project and put all my physical energy into the build, not realizing as I built the wall, I was also rebuilding my thought process and constructing a new path for my life.
I finished the wall all by myself and realized that I can apply myself to anything that I wanted to and that I would not give up.
Although I am grateful for Supra, I also learned a very valuable lesson while working for them all these years, that lesson is, I will never dedicate my life and creative contributions to a corporation that never cared about me, they only cared about making as much money off my Passion, Skateboarding and Designs as they could.
No one there was my true friend, even when they all acted like it, I learned business is business though, and that’s just how it is.
I was constantly devalued and told my contributions were not the reason the products sold and that I was paid too much each time a contract would end, the longer I dedicated myself, the less I got.
I am grateful for the opportunity I had to see these visions come to life, but I was completely ripped off in my opinion and my generosity and kindness were taken advantage of.
Although this may sound bitter, it is just me speaking my truth. I’ll never look back and will only look forward to the future.
The industry tried to completely remove me and convince me I was done, so I had to create my own industry and literally overnight my fans saved my life.
I can’t thank you all enough!
Since the first posting, Chad deleted some of the criticism which was directed at Supra …
