All tees still available in the webstore, hoodys are sold out. Available instore from Supreme New York & LA, Seasons, Humidity, One-Up, Commissary, Exit and NJ Skateshop. If you’re in Europe, QS gear is available online via Lost Art (free shipping in the UK), Palomino and Cali Roots. Thanks for the support.

Alexander Mosley launched his new website, Watermelonism.com. New clip on there featuring a quick Billy Waldman cameo. Support the Watermelon man by buying a board or tee. Down since day zero.

Trevor Colden won over the entire QS office by skating to Migos for his Skate Mental intro part (oddly to the song we joked about using for the Westgate remix.) Needless to say, skimming through people crying about the music supervision in the comments was real familiar experience. Now who’s gonna skate to “Freak No More?”

In addition to the lost Reese Forbes part that made it online last week, Donny Barley had a full section from the same Quiksilver promo. It’s great.

Volume 2 of Muckmouth’s “Where are they now?” series featuring Billy Valdez, Aaron Snyder, Robbie Gangemi, Eric Ricks and others. Speaking of Aaron Snyder, how good would an Epicly Later’d on the entire Shorty’s team be? (Huf is getting one, BTW.)

Diamond Days #73. Keith still doesn’t know where the lipstick came from.

There’s, like, one good spot in London.

There’s a 59-year-old cab driver in the Guangdong providence of China (a place with more than one spot) who doesn’t speak a word of English, but makes a living driving skateboarders around to spots that he shows them on his phone.

There’s a Leo Heinert video check-out over on the TWS site. He frontside 5050s through the knobs on the long Union Square rail.

New Balance with probably the highest production value on a “Summer Trip to New York” clip ever. Can we please stop attaching two-minute credits sections after three-minute web clips? All due respect to those behind the scenes, but it’s excessive.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Kevin Durant’s fallaway four-point play was insane, but the Thunder ended up losing the game in overtime, so it’s got to go to Vince Carter’s three-point game winner. Who knew Vince Carter was seventh in all-time made threes? How good have the playoffs been? Is the cloud of Donald Sterling’s worldview from two centuries ago going to end up costing the Clippers the series?

  • Pretty sure the Migos song was put there to mock the swagsters and troll the haters at the same time. Well done, Staba. #golfclap.

  • Any chance there’s an alternate link to the Quiksilver promo? It’s blocked already.

  • I thought Skate Mental bit that song from a QS clip. If not they bit your essence, and it didnt work. Now that Watermelon clip, that was music supervision.
