After Wednesday’s highly #controversial interview, it felt necessary for us to return to what we do best — and this is, of course, what a noted magazine publisher once described as “random, insignificant, or unimpressive skating” :)

Below are all the outtakes that got left over from spring via the “Start of Summer” clip, plus a few clips from the winter. Chief Keith, Puerto Rico, Houston Street construction (obviously), long 5050s, Alexander Olson doing a number of exceptional backside kickflips, midtown evenings, and of course, the star of all “Drop Offs” installments, Matthew Perez (depicted above.)

There’s oddly less talking than usual, and if you need some tunes for viewing, any number of Fetty Wap sleepers should get you through the weekend, if not the entire summer. Have a good one.

P.S. The Go Skate Day set-up at Tompkins is crazy.

Previous Drop Off Installments: Volume 3, Volume 2, Volume 1

Week late with this, but that’s probably ok…

Week late Memorial Day edit features: Keith Denley, Richard Quintero, Corey Rubin, Zach Baker, Emilio Cuilan, Johnny Wilson, Pad Dowd, Dave Caddo, Bobby Worrest, Lurker Lou, John Choi, Andre Page, Matt Perez, Troy Stillwell, Will Robson-Scott, Jack Sabback, Adam Zhu, Connor Champion, Jesse Alba, Yaje Popson, Challex Olson doing a line that’s only nollie AND switch.

This is probably the most daytime-heavy Quartersnacks clip ever filmed. Hardly any night footage. It’s weird. Warriors in 6?

Also, there are only ~two days left to vote in the Levi’s Skateboarding + Quartersnacks Set Contest, so go vote if you have yet to do so.

Summer gear online Monday, June 1 at 12 A.M. At Labor now. Have a good weekend.

Levi’s Skateboarding + Quartersnacks Set Contest

May 22nd, 2015 | 3:32 am | Footage | 65 Comments

set contest

As prefaced on Wednesday, set building employs a large portion of skateboarders in New York. Thanks to the support of Levi’s Skateboarding, we were able to get some funds to throw a contest between a few of the shops out in Brooklyn.

The premise is simple, shoot a video with each respective shop’s employees skating only their workspace. Each had a little over a month to complete the task, and could take any route they wanted. A few weren’t able to come through due to the time demands of the job (always next time), but we got two solid entries from two of the larger skater-run shops: Pink Sparrow and Ready Set. Check below.

The winner gets $3k for their team. We gonna let the streets decide who wins.

Who should get the $3k?

  • Pink Sparrow (55%, 3,647 Votes)
  • Ready Set (45%, 3,540 Votes)

Total Voters: 6,619

Voting ends May 31st, 11:59 P.M. May the best team win. Have a good weekend ;)

Connor filmed the majority of this part throughout 2014, with a few clips from the tolerable days of this past winter. Half New York / half North Carolina, cut up to a late bloomer (at least in New York…) of a “Song of the Spring” candidate, and the greatest punctuation anthem of all time. Enjoy.

Contributing filmers: Chris Hall, Gray Mclamrock, Dan Murphy, Ben Gazda, Gree O’Donnell, R.B. Umali and Johnny Wilson. Shout out to the springtime :)

The Winter That Was / Still Is

March 26th, 2015 | 3:33 am | Footage | 4 Comments

winter 2015

Haven’t done a “winter” clip since 2011, but maybe the coldest January-February-March of our lifetime deserves a revival of this non-tradition. (FYI: It’s going back down to thirty-degree temperatures on Saturday.)

Below are the few days that were spent skating in this cold bitch of a season. It is obvs edited to a song off the album that kept the Quartersnacks office from joining hands and jumping out of our thirty-eighth floor window after reviewing any given ten-day forecast from this past winter. StremmLife is a happy rap classic — and we just trying to have fun yo. (Free idea: Since it’s break-up season and all…if your girl breaks up with you right before all your hot new footage drops, you should def retweak the part to “This Could Be Us” A.K.A. the Rae Sremmurd Blackalicious song.)

Filmed by Andre Page and John Diaz ♥♥♥
