Who wins: Mariah Woodson’s selfies or Mike Woodson’s expressions / lack thereof?

Update: J.R. Smith won Sixth Man of the Year.

Supreme New York has QS tees back in stock. This includes the Monk’s, Noseslides and both colors of Snackman tees. 274 Lafayette Street. They will be available at Exit Skateshop in Philadelphia this week as well. Our webstore should be online sometime closer to the summer with other new product. If you want a shirt now, send an e-mail to quartersnacks [at] gmail [dot] com and we could arrange an order if your size is still available. Quantities are limited for now. (Sorry we cannot accommodate international special orders at this time. Yes, Canada = international.)

Taji goes skating in lower Manhattan with Ryan Hickey (and Peter Huynh.) File under: Things nobody expected to happen in 2013.

A glimpse into what life is like when you sort of look like Eric Koston.

No clue what the concept behind these Skateboarder “Cruising” videos is supposed to be (a hastag-ized “Day in the Life” series?), but the new Eli Reed one is solid.

In the realm of skatepark lines by skaters with seemingly unhuman consistency, this is quite impressive, but there can only be one king.

Billy McFeely skates Tompkins obstacles from 2013, but in 1991 though.

Just so everyone knows: “The government made this dude so everyone else would stop skating.” — Billy McFeely. (P.S. That link might get deleted.)

Yet another interview with Palace Skateboards mastermind, Lev Tanju. Also, if you haven’t signed the petition to preserve Southbank, do it now. Multi-generational street spots are few and far between these days, and it’d be a real shame to see such an iconic piece of skate history destroyed in favor favour of retail space.

Is “The Redneck Skater Hall of Fame” a “thing?”

Spot Updates: This resurfacing may fix a noted good ledge / bad ground scenario.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Got to be Andre Miller’s game-winning drive. The awful news about David Lee (not to mention Faried, Gallo, etc. injuries) really puts a damper on one of the Sports Desk’s most anticipated playoff match-ups.

Quote of the Week: “Y’all can’t use this railing to play your stunts.” — A Security Guard Referring to a Ledge

How do you feel about the current darkslide phase of Jim Greco’s career arc?

  • Wow. Yeah, any search result for it says it was deleted. Good work, ESPN!

    Try Googling around for “UXA Inside the Line” and maybe something will come up.

  • Backing Greco because they’re weird techy darkslides with griptape on the bottom of the tail. There’s also some homage to Jeremy Klein in that part.

  • Hickey is the NYC archetype Samuel; it’s more like a Jeter type admiration I think
