The Beginning of Doom Sayers Club
The brand was born when Omar Salazar departed on a long drive from LA to Sacramento. Doing his best thinking while driving, the idea for Doom Sayers came when the AM radio started bellowing a southern Baptist radio station. It was just before 2012 when there was huge hype around the world ending, and the presenter was talking about doom sayers ‘telling you what you can and can’t do’ and ‘It’s up to you to take that negativity and change it to fuel’. Despite the topic being ridiculous, Omar realised he agreed with the preacher on another level – about skateboarding!
Being told he ‘wouldn’t amount to anything’ and to ‘give up on skateboarding’ was a normal occurrence for Omar along with plenty of other skaters, so the term Doom Sayers stuck.
