Quartersnacks Top 10 — December 30, 2016

December 30th, 2016 | 12:02 am | Daily News | 2 Comments

qs-top-10-dec-30

Last one of the year boys ;) Had a good time putting these together for the past six months and thanks to everyone for all of the feedback. The past week has been pretty slow on traditional media outlets, so this edition is rather Instagram heavy. Also no idea why the Studio Skateboards video was only ripping without audio, but oh well.

Most important news of the past week is that the god Lucas is back on the board — unless of course someone comes through right now with a “that footage is old” quip, which is 50% likely. Have a good one ♥

The 2016 Quartersnacks Year in Review: 5-1

5. The State of the T.F. Report [Sponsored by Soundcloud]

Those around for the post-9/11 flatbar years would find the modern T.F. virtually unrecognizable. Anyone with a functioning brain opts to meet at a skatepark rather than a place where they are forced to have an interaction with a paralegal holding a permit. This year, we were shocked to learn that while we may have a dedicated place to willingly cage ourselves into under the Manhattan Bridge, Soundcloud rappers are still looking for a home. In 2016, they found a nest at our onetime East Village meeting place, and have kept the (sometimes literal) fire of Tompkins debauchery lit in an era when we demand that our day consist of something more than skating a piece of plywood or a discarded Christmas tree.

April in December

No idea what you’re doing inside right now, but ANYWAY…

Wade Desarmo is an ambidextrous magician. Or wizard. Or something.

E.J. uploaded Shawn Powers’ DANY video part to his Vimeo page. You can still buy a hard copy of the video over on theDANYstore.com. Public Housing Skate Team also released an eerie eight-minute Powers part yesterday.

The Bunt is back! Somehow figured this would take at least until 2017. The first episode of the third season is with varial flip master and Jersey legend, Tim O’Connor.

Happy 25th anniversary to the first-ever backside noseblunt sequence

Boil the Ocean began its countdown of 2016’s best video parts. You already know Daniel’s Spirit Quest part made the cut. Speaking of which…

The concept of a “skate blog” is close to non-existent in 2016. Solo interviewed Dan Watson, the mind behind YouWillSoon, a notorious skate industry gossip repository that made him a certain canteen manager’s arch nemesis from roughly 2004-2008. “But I think what most people really ignored about the blog is that I think skateboarding is fucking awesome. I think skateboarding is so good. I feel like people think that skateboarding in the Olympics or Street League or something can somehow ruin skateboarding or that it’ll somehow dilute the coolness of skateboarding down to the point where it’s not going to be cool anymore. But that’s not going to happen.”

This clip is heavy on the fancy angles and lifestyle footage, but new Leo Gutman footage is new Leo Gutman footage. Assuming every spot you don’t know in this clip is out on Staten Island prob.

Russian Bob put together a sick end of the year clip with a switch front crook on the rock “ledge” next to Labor, a bunch of chill Ron Deily lines, and Eli’s switch noseslide on Forsyth that we had to fire our titles guy over this past Friday.

Non-Instagram Ruben Spelta footage + Madrid marble is a good time.

Chill best of clip from Washington Heights’ Mira Conyo squad that features a cat trying to boss up on a pitbull and the year’s most heavily-skated bondo bank-to-ledge.

iPhone video from Joey Digital w/ a bunch of B.A. cruiser footage.

#TRENDWATCH2017 (?): Early 2000s backpack rap classics? Nick Lipere’s HYD part is now live. Also, shout out to Newport Mall and EST2.

Freddy and Quim made it to Maine and now I want a lobster roll.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Skateboarders really think of everything. Little kid tricks began to pervade trick selections back in ~2013, then gained legitimacy in pro circles, and now, marginal NBA players are taking underhanded free throws. DeAndre Jordan takes his first underhanded free throw when, April?

Quote of the Week:

chuck-quote

On this last Monday Links post of the year, I’d just like to say thank you everyone for being along for the ride in 2016 and for all of your support. Besides a bit of an update slump at the start of summer, this has probably been the best year ever on this website for content, creativity and productivity (ok, fine, we blew it on the Christmas clip.) Hope to keep it going for many chill years to come.

Out of everything, I feel like the interviews really took a turn for the better this year, which was one of the main things causing the aforementioned slump. Revisit some faves if you missed them: Ben Chadourne, Dave Caddo, Sinner, Zered Bassett, Jamal Smith, Antosh Cimoszko, J. Scott Handsdown.

Also shout out to Zach Baker for writing the best thing that has been on QS in years.

Thanks again ♥

Merry Christmas…kinda

Merry Christmas to whoever woke up with the stolen Beamer logo off Dre’s car under their tree.

Hate to pile on to 2016’s seemingly infinite supply of bad news, but this is the first year that we’re not coming through with a full Christmas clip. Although the past two have admittedly lost the steam of say 2007’s tour de force, 2010’s G.O.A.T. or 2012’s shockingly productive fall — 2016 is the year when adult life caught up, and skateboarding in November/December outside of Tompkins or a skatepark just didn’t go down like it used to. Below are a few ~moody~ bits from the summer (!!!) to fill the place of a would-be Christmas clip.

Eleven years in a row of by-far the longest running annual web clip series ain’t so bad. Shout out to the O.G. Bryan Chin from who we ripped the idea off in the first place back in the early 2000s. Hope to make it back for the next one.

Features Daniel Kim, Connor Champion, Josh Velez, Andre Page, John Franco, Akira Mowatt, Matthew Perez, Lurker Lou, Keith Denley, Alexander Mosley, Thom Musso, Pryce Holmes. Filmed by Andre Page and Pad Dowd.

BUT, keep in mind that none of that may matter at all, since Dustin Henry’s Antisocial Video part is still around to warm your heart this holiday season. Congrats again to Dustin for winning our first annual Skater You Would Be Most OK With Your Daughter Dating Award! #perfectboy

Merry Christmas everyone. We’ll be back on Tuesday, December 27th.
