We keep waiting.

Waiting for Logan to emerge from his lair (which may or may not still be upstairs from the old Quartersnacks office) and begin working on the 917 video.

Waiting for famous house DJ, Challex Olson, to climb out from the twelve-foot-tall mountain of “Lover” hoodys and drop some new footage.

Waiting for Transworld to learn how to spell Cyrus’ name right. Or at least waiting to meet this emotional “Cryus” creature that they attributed their cover to.

Waiting for Drew to say “YOOOOOOO” longer than the last time he said “YOOO.”

Waiting for Ishod to admit he inherited Lebron’s headband collection.

Waiting for Johnny to start eating cheeseburgers and making weekly video blogs again, reclaiming the banner of productivity that he held so tightly from 2012-2015.

Waiting for Max to find a metal crevice that he can’t send his board through.

…I think Andrew has a longer “YOOOOOOOOOOOOOO” in him, but for everything else, we’ll have to keep waiting, and waiting. In the meantime, here’s a video from some of those guys forcing us to play the wait game, and a couple guys with their names on skate shoes skating throughout the south this past spring.

Quartersnacks Top 10 — May 5, 2017

qs top 10 may 5

Do you think they still text from time-to-time?

Not much has changed in a week. Isle’s “Atlantic Drift” videos are still the best montage series going, Tom Knox still practices the finest multi-level line choreography in skateboarding, Japanese skaters still have the quickest feet on earth, Meatball may have learned nollie flips in the past week but still has a long way to go towards this week’s number two, and QS Top 10s are still on a bender of #highimpact number ones, this time via a Dade County correctional officer’s namesake.

Shout out to Mostly for the tip on the Japanese video.

Congrats to the Palace boys on the opening of their SoHo store (49 Howard Street.) Hope everyone made it home safe last night ;) Have a good weekend ♥

Available in Japan now. Available in Europe, Korea and Canada next week. Available online next Monday, May 8th, at midnight E.S.T. Thx 4 the ♥

Congrats to Cyrus on his first magazine cover. Gonna party extra hard for the first cover he gets with his name actually spelled right ;)

Walker Ryan has low-key (mid-key?) spent the past few years doing some of the best tricks on the staple New York spots. Old Friends put together this five-minute A.B.D. edit of all his city footage. Respect to filming the World Trade out ledge from the Burger King window, and to the fact that the security guard standing at the bottom of the bank is basically a part of the Roosevelt Island spot, no matter the clip.

Quim Cardona and friends in the montage from Politic’s First Division video.

This video is dreadful, but Chris Pfanner does a beast line from the rail to the double bump-to-bars in the projects on Madison Street.

Drew Connors dropped a promo for Bailar II, featuring Shredmaster Keith advocating for the resurgence of the Polish Park ledges on McGuiness — A.K.A. Derick Ziemkiewicz Park. You can watch the first Bailar video here.

Genny uploaded his first iPhone video of the spring to a David Banner classic.

The last part of Making It Happen is online, via Patrick Vidal and some monstrous pop.

Jonathan Rentschler has a sick-looking new 176-page book coming out that documents the final three years of Love Park.

Haven’t had a chance to listen yet, but the latest Bunt episode is with Ryan Gallant.

Russian Bob and Reda put together this retrospective on New York skateboarding’s first videographer, R.B. Umali. Happy 40th R.B. (Rewatch his “Shoot All Skaters” episodes from a few years ago because they’re bomb.)

Boil the Ocean re: Chromeball Interview #100 with Danny Way.

Enjoyed this edit from London’s proverbial T.F., Gillett Square (“Crackba” is a sick nickname), which was outside of Torey’s first apartment in London :) Memories, man!

So do we buy tickets to Prague orrrrrr……?

Lol @ them skate-proofing this hellhole of a spot. Shout out Hjalte. Also, the Marcy Rails are done for. Thanks to Mike Heikkila for the intel.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: I hate Paul Pierce, but respect the fuck out of Paul Pierce, and now that he’s out of the league as of yesterday, I don’t hate Paul Pierce. Godspeed to one of the great NBA villains.

Thunder in Eight

April 24th, 2017 | 5:07 am | Daily News | 10 Comments


Via Requiem for A Screen, duh ♥

Phew, The Bunt is back. Season four, episode one with Elijah Berle.

Really heavy new edition of LurkNYC’s “Mean Streets” series went live this past weekend. The 5050 at Chase, Howard Street ollie and Columbia ollie were all insane. Is that Water Street ender an NBD? Wow.

Jason Byoun is like an O.G. nu-age Brooklyn Banks head.

This past weekend, Brian Wenning did his first switch back nosegrind pop-out since Photosynthesis, and it looked fab. Sorry to link two single tricks two links in a row :)

There’s an official trailer out for Pat O’Dell’s feature documentary about Big Brother.

Is a “VX Montage” in an HD video like when they throw a random experimental song in the middle of a rap album? And holy shit, that 360 flip

A couple more parts from Ricardo Napoli’s Making It Happen video are up over on TWS: A non-VX montage featuring Akira and a bunch of dudes, Taylor Clark + Jarrod Brandreth’s shared part, and Bruno Aguero + Lindolfo Oliveira’s shared part. Also, Transworld, please do something about your video player. Tried to rewind a trick and had to watch a Pennzoil commercial mid-video…

Ripped Laces on the recent resurgence of yellow gear in skateboarding.

“Alas, as ledge skating gained supremacy and skateable blocks began trading at a premium due to police pressure and general scarcity, peg damage and huffy attitudes came to divide the camps, such that by the time the handrail age set in, extreme bike riders became punchlines.” Dunno about the “punchline” part, as we’ve linked a BMX video or two on here before and like ummm, ROB CAMPBELL, but Boil the Ocean considers the relationship between bikes and skateboards, circa 2017. We Citibiked up to Lenox from Soho yesterday, and it was pretty beast ;)

An extensive interview with Ian from Jenkem.

Luis Tolentino was actually Spiderman all along.

Spot Updates — 1) Defeated lol on them re-paving every part of this spot except where we needed them to re-pave. At least Avenue A getting re-paved is the biggest thing to happen to New York skateboarding since children discovered Indoor Ten. 2) Spot was a two second bust and for pros, but those rails parallel to the narrow banks on 33rd Street are mad high now. 21. 21. 21.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: So, Thunder in 8, right?! With the Russ adoration running high on here this past season, let’s take a second to remind ourselves of J.R. Smith’s brilliance — sorry, meant NBA Champion™ J.R. Smith’s brilliance. [Also remembered how annoying it is that we now have to wait until the end of June to find out who MVP, 6MOTY, etc. is now.]

Quote of the Week: “Harden is like the guy at the spot who knows how to land all tricks, but he’s wearing fat Globes and skinny pants.” — Francesco Pini
