Rob Gonyon might have the most fire iPhone videos out right now. Features a few clips from the yet-to-be-fully-completed East Williamsburg Bushwick Skatepark.

Can’t remember the last time a bunch of people in New York kept bringing up a foreign Vimeo upload as much as the Parisian “Daydream” clip from last week.

Mango and friends skating #weird stuff around New York for three minutes.

Boil the Ocean on all potential S.O.T.Y. candidates. I’ll buy everyone who reads this site a crook shove at the bar if it ends up not being A.V.E. In related news, a Max Palmer two-peat is not entirely impossible for Q.S.S.O.T.Y.

Though there a few Japanese kickflips to appreciate in this part, the dude does maybe the greatest backside 180 5-0 grind ever done as his ender. It looks like a full-on manual. Thanks to Mostly Skateboarding for pointing that one out.

Nice to see Zeigfeld still sorta existing post-apocalypse.

Chromeball has a great interview with Thomas Campbell about the early days of skate magazines, which also touches on the making of the first Supreme video / short film from 1996. “Some people had beef with those [Euro] articles because they felt those countries didn’t support skateboarding. Whatever. Who cares. We’re on the Earth. Go skate whatever you want.” You heard your boy Mars got water now?

Mike Carroll on #musicsupervision and…Lupus.

Speaking of Carroll, SMLTalk tried to get to the bottom of the varial flip’s re-accepted place in the trick selection landscape, i.e. how it went from getting boo-ed at contests to perfectly fine to throw mid-line in 2015.

KCDC built some new stuff under the B.Q.E. thanks to the DLX build project.

QS D.I.Y. Desk (jk, that’s not real): Some chill early nineties photos from Burnside.

  • I was really hoping the “dead in the middle of little italy” line in twinz would be coupled with some banging tricks from that 5BNY teaser. Oh well, on to the next skate clip.
