Many people have mentioned that on Monday morning, the first thing they check is the Quote of the Week. Friends who don’t skate say that it is the only #content on the website that translates to them (wait the stuff about Kareem Campbell checking his pager isn’t #relevant to you?) The vast extended family of QS is what gives this website life. Even with all the laughs that happen on a given day, far too many them would end up being “you had to be there”-moments if we strained to recount them in written form. These are the ones that kinda sorta maybe hopefully translate.

We usually do these posts once every few years on the anniversary (September 12), but since this year was the ten, we had to run the retrospective video that day. Here they are for roughly mid-2013 to a week ago. Volume 1 is here and volume 2 here.

10 Years of Quartersnacks

ten years site

On September 12, 2005, Quartersnacks began as a website to post often-average — occasionally above-average — skateboard videos. It was a place to share the jokes from yesterday’s midtown session, and a medium to talk shit about skateboarding or whatever the hell else was going on in New York at the time.

Thanks to some good luck, a lot of great friends, and above all, an odd thing called skateboarding that has grown a hundredfold in New York this past decade, we’re still here today, exactly ten years later. Still talking shit, still not particularly incredible at skating, and still having a good time :)

Thank you to everyone who has been along for the ride, told a friend about the website, or put a sticker on their board. Hopefully, we’ll still be doing some variant of the same thing in another ten years.

Oh, and sorry for not updating the spots page in five years ;)

Have a good weekend and thanks again.
