Remember that scene in Men in Black where Tommy Lee and Big Willie are chilling on a bench in Battery Park, and he’s explaining what we once “knew” of the universe? “1500 years ago, people knew that the earth was the center of the universe. 500 years ago, people knew that the earth was flat…”

Fifteen minutes ago, we were living with absolute certainty that lines on our beloved Three Up Three Down maxed out at three tricks. Dear God were we wrong.

“Stay Young” is the new part from 2013 Q.S.S.O.T.Y. Leo Gutman for Labor Skateshop. Between an impeccable seldom-seen-in-other-New York-vids spot selection (seriously, who the f thinks to skate this thing), the best trick thus far on that full pipe-ish sculpture at Union Square, and some seasonably appropriate gloves footage, is perhaps the biggest development in Three Up Three Down’s six-year existence. Three stairs up one side, three stairs down the other, three tricks [once thought] possible in consecutive order — the spot was once an O.C.D. victim’s dream. Until now, since Leo Gutman altered our perceptions of time and space by stuffing two flatground tricks between the two sets of three.

Four, FOUR tricks at THREE Up THREE Down!

  • Crazy part. I watch his Brodies section almost every month. Didn’t expect that he would edit his part like this but it was still crazy. I would like to see remix of this but that’s kinda strange if Leo edited this part by himself….

  • Just realized that the first half of Men in Black is way better than the second half and that porch gaps are top 3 coolest kinds of gaps as far as #aesthetics go.
