We should be caught up with shipping all orders from last week by the end of today. If you ordered before the weekend and didn’t receive a shipping confirmation to the email address you ordered with, feel free to check in with us. Otherwise there are some loose sizes and hats left. Available at European accounts now. Arriving in Canada and Australia this week ♥ Thanks everyone for the support.

Josh Velez has a quick interview over on the Air Jordan blog.

“You want a toke?” “I don’t do drugs.”

Frog posted the raw footage and B-sides to Hjalte’s guest board part.

…and Ben Chadourne posted the full battle behind Franco’s nollie cab flip.

“Is the speed of Jamie Foy’s ascent, from amateur to pro and SOTY the same year, a reflection of or reason behind the breakneck pace driving skate media these days?…Could the nod to Jamie Foy also serve as a quiet acknowledgement that it shoulda been Fred Gall one of those years?”

Iron Claw is [not] having a premiere for their new video this Wednesday, December 13, at 122 Meserole Street. Two showings: one at 8 P.M. and another at 9. Teaser here.

L-O-FUCKING-L at your poor ass life.

Though Ride doesn’t do much these days apart from continue to ask us why Chicago isn’t a bigger deal in skateboarding, Slap brought back the article predictions thread for 2018. “Shake Junt hires Ty Evans for next video: Chicken Drone Nowison.”

Here’s a new one from Jake Kuzyk and all the Vancouver boys.

Theories is posting raw files from Elkin’s videos. First episode is fall 2010, and features Aaron Herrington, Leo Gutman, Quim, and Vert God before he started to GRoE.

Tony Manfre and Pat Stiner look back at Static 3 for its ten-year anniversary.

“Like the flow of posts through social media, skateboard graphics are inherently ephemeral. They are destined to be worn and scuffed and distorted until all that remains is smeared paint and exposed wood. But some images are designed to linger, if only in the imagination.” On the ascent of Polar Skateboards…as a menswear brand.

Jeff Lenoce still has that flick. Go make a stack or something ;)

New Bunt with Hermdog. You think the guy in the comments found the song by now?

Harry Bergenfield filmed a two-minute Carlos Mendoza part in L.A.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: The end of Clippers-Wizards was a little nuts.

Quote of the Week: “Marriage? Fuck that. I’ll never get married. Unless she’s rich as shit.” — E.T.

Jamal Smith tweeted this one yesterday. Probably, haven’t watched it this decade, but remember that finally tracking down that Diamond D song was a pivotal prepubescent moment. Also, shout out to all the 2017 Kasperholics.

  • skateboarding’s a living language, but certain shit is locked. correcting randoms irl at the LES park is one thing; writing copy on your “skate nerd” blog is another: nollie cab is not a thing. it’s a nollie f/s 360, nollie 360 for everyday use because backside is an exception and no one ever wants to see that trick anyway. if you’re 40 or older and you want to confuse anyone born after the ’70s, you can legitimately call it a switch cab/cabellerial. no “nollie half cab”, no “nollie cab”.

  • I’m still annoyed at the trend of shortening trick names down to the least amount of syllables possible. It reminds me of guys who call into morning radio sports talkshows.
