Greg Myers.

Seek was a division of the Alien Workshop that was started in 2003. It was led by long time Workshop riders Rob Dyrdek and Josh Kalis. They got DC Shoes teammate Colin McKay to leave Girl for the company. Former City Stars rider Mikey Taylor and young gun Greg Myers were added to the team. They also explored the European markets by sponsoring Flo Marfaing and Alex Carolino. Seek lasted a couple of years. After the end, Dyrdek, Kalis and Taylor were added back to the Alien Workshop. McKay and Danny Way headed off to restart Plan B. Unfortunately, Marfaing and Carolino were left to fend for themselves.

I'm not exactly sure what happened to Greg Myers. He was one of those kids who seemed to have a lot of potential, but didn't have a steady board sponsor. He was on DC for the longest time and then he sort of disappeared.

Myers seemed to fall off for a long time. Then put out this part in 2010. Then proceeded to fall off again.

I saw that the clip existed yesterday, but didn't have time to watch it yet.

I kind of figured that since he had been sponsored since he was younger that he either burned out or just kind of paced himself. He'd get an ad every so often.

I wonder if dna is gonna try again for a 3rd sister company. Both teams are getting big.

Habitat - 9 pros, 5 ams

Never had a Seek board but rode lots of Alien and Habitat boards in the years it existed.
