If you need further evidence of Puerto Rico having become the northeast’s preferred winter getaway, here it is. New York’s most productive skate crew just got back from there with a four-minute clip, and you can probably assume they set aside a handful of clips for whatever the sequel to Beef Patty is going to be. “Empanada” is via Johnny Wilson and co., and the third “New York dudes in Puerto Rico” clip from the past month-and-a-half. (Previously: Iron Claw in P.R., Quartersnacks in P.R.)

Puerto Rico trips are not particularly new, they’re just very #now. For older evidence, here’s the P.R. section from the 2003 Zoo York tour video, City of Killers. Zered does a snowboard trick but on a skateboard in it, and there’s a Robert Lopez-Mont intro part from his brief stint on Zoo. Even though dude may be firmly planted in skate industry exile a la C-Fro, there wasn’t an hour that passed during our trip where one of the locals didn’t say “Oh, Robert did so-and-so insane trick here.” Just look at the hubba at the end of this clip

Follow Johnny on Vimeo. Why hasn’t the YG album leaked yet? Who has a car?

  • North east? How about everybody. I like how quartersnacks selectively forgets that crailtap and a couple other big distributions pretty much set that trend for everybody.
