coachella crew

Happy internet list season! Best Instagram Post by a Pro Skateboarder — 2014. #coachellacrew

15 seconds of unseen Jake Johnson footage from a 2007-ish Adidas footage tape.

Ishod Wair’s Paych part in Paych. While you’re at it, give Paych a vote for “Best Indie Video of the Year” over on the Transworld site. Purchase here.

Volume #10 of the cell phone footage from the Paych dudes. Based on the increasing ratio of skateboarding : night club footage in these, the “Most Productive Crew” title will no longer be relevant by February fashion week. Maybe they make it to September.

Boil the Ocean on the most controversial backside flip to never happen. Who has a nice TV and wants to host a Plan B premiere tomorrow? Preferably below 14th Street.

Not in the habit of referring people towards L.E.S. Park footage, but the shit Brandon Westgate does in his Ricta commercial (Ricta!) is pretty wild.

“Nah, I never had [360 flips] like that. Never over something or down anything. Never consistently. There would maybe be a day here or there where I would have them lovely on flatground but then they’d be gone. I could never hold on to a good tre flip.” All of us “I learned how to 360 flip 100 times, but forgot how to 360 flip 101 times”-people have something in common with Gino Iannucci! Similarities end there :(

Far from comprehensive, but Kingpin has a brief R.I.P. Para-lel edit. (Also: Relevant.)

500 Degreez-centric #musicsupervision is cool. The end of that clip isn’t.

TWS has a detailed interview with Danny Renaud about coming back from the dead. Dude would probably make a good Epicly Later’d.

Skate Witches 2k14: Brujas, the all-girl Latina skate crew from The Bronx.

Get me back to Paris.

The new Lurk NYC video, Strangers, will be premiering at Sunshine Cinemas on Wednesday, December 10 at 8 P.M. Flyer here.

Spot Updates: This might be a few weeks late — like, who really even skates downtown anymore? — but the slanted ledges at Battery are back. The ground is a little worse, and the runways a bit narrower due to some new pre-knobbed benches in the way. They even threw in a four-stair and two new manual pads. No telling if it’s a bigger bust now, but the “No Skateboarding” signs are all still up.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Russell Westbrook for M.V.P

In the event that you need a Monday morning dose of idiocy

  • If Sk8Mafia could somehow get better art direction, and change the name, they would be top tier. Not sure the wood quality, but team, music supervision, heavy camo prints, and very few gimmicks. Plus Wes. The logo looks like the publisher clearing house logo. It almost could be a Bronze style retro cheese logo, but I m leaning towards it just being bad.

  • Sk8Mafia is just fine the way it is.
    Plus their decks are pressed by Bareback so wood is top notch.

  • I heard a rabid squirrel is terrorizing Tompkins. Who brought their pet squirrel to the TF? And more importantly which one of you degenerates bit the poor little dude?
