all day breakfast

I go back in my pocket, and I go buy…another one.

Thanks to everyone who grabbed something from the webstore. We’re getting caught up on orders these next two days so please hold on any “where’s my stuff”-emails for a few days. If you don’t receive a confirmation to the email you purchased with by the end of the week, feel free to hit us up. Quantities of some stuff are running low so grab something while you can or pay your local shop a visit :)

Free Skate Mag interviewed Palace’s Juan Saavedra. Been saying that partying til all hours in the night is ninety percent more likely to open better doors for you than a six-figure college degree / student loan bill ever could.

TWS has a new four-minute edit via Josh Stewart featuring all the Theories dudes.

Hard to think of a subject that is more frequently pontificated on in the skateboard-sites-with-words-on-them-o-sphere than the varial flip. Fakie Hill Bomb on “this year’s ugly duckling turned prom queen.” Pretty sure it has been #ontrend since Stevie did it switch in the Parental Advisory throwaways though.

ICYMI: The Black Hubba Instagram clip heard around the world.

SMLTalk proposes that we rename the regular-stance frontside heelflip to “hardflip,” since it is, after all, the hardest flip trick that exists. The Rieder Bond Street one is easily top seventeen or eighteen trick done in city limits.

You might have caught sight of that bike track below the Williamsburg Bridge while skating over its north side. NY Skateboarding paid it a visit for a spot check.

Jenkem unearthed some vintage Brooklyn Banks footage from 1993. I’d vote for Donald Trump if he vowed to restore the small Banks to their original state with ledges pre-2004 reconstruction. #makethebanksgreatagain2016

Boil the Ocean on skateboarding and a controversial subject — an actual career.

Skateboard Story interviewed notable pro sweatpants advocate, Jimmy Gorecki.

A bit related: Sal Barbier is reissue-ing some of the classic Aesthetics boards.

Fam where the hell is Dave Mayhew on this list?

Surprised it has taken this long for a skate clip to use “Back 2 Back,” given our current #attermswithdrake era. When’s someone gonna skate to “Wack 2 Wack” though?

QS Sports Desk: After seeing this re-posted on a few varying outlets I can still honestly say this is the only smidgen of New York Knicks basketball that I have watched this season thus far. He does wear a #6 after all…

  • There’s no DJ Khaled of anything besides being DJ Khaled.

    And DJ Khaled is the DJ Khaled of being DJ Khaled.

  • In ref to that Stevie Chocolate Ad – why is it ok to push switch mongo?
    Aesthetically it looks just as bad and is just as clunky as pushing regular mongo.

    What makes it ok? I gotz ta know!?!
