You don’t make it to ten years as an internationally respected skateboard fashion house / media enterprise without a strong team. Actually, “strong” might be underselling it — the hands-down best team that exists. As we celebrate a decade, we will begin to celebrate the ones who have spent decades being great humans altogether, who just so happened to become essential pieces of the QS thinktank.

Hard to think of someone as crucial to the longterm existence of Quartersnacks as Andre Page — honorary father to a solid seventy-percent of our office, owner of the best grown and sexy ollie in the business, the best 360 flip in New York city limits, and possibly the finest practitioner of the front shove on earth. Today is his birthday, and there is no finer individual to bestow with an inaugural “QS Legends Series” part.

Thank you for everything Dre.

Have a good weekend. Step your front shove game up.

Better Late Than Never: End of Summer 2015 Montage

end of summer 2015

We made it! Just one day shy of October — when it becomes truly embarrassing to post an “End of Summer” edit. Not that we haven’t been late on the Labor Day deadline or entirely missed an End of Summer clip before (obviously in 2009, the year multiple viewers of the ten-year clip pointed out as the turning point for when the party became a crucial part of QS office culture), but it’d be too sad to enter autumn without bidding da summa farewell.

In our defense, these past four months had multiple extracurricular video projects: “56 Tricks,” “Core” (some of the better iPhone angles from it made their way into this one), the all-too-important TM101 anniversary clip, and obviously the ten-year edit.

Features Matt Perez [finally] graduating high school, Antonio Durao, Johnny Wilson, Andrew Wilson, Hjalte Halberg, Andre Page, Chandy Khon, Cyrus Bennett, Alexander Mosley, Jesse Alba, Daniel Kim, Will Robson-Scott, Jack Sabback, Brendan Carroll, Mike Gigliotti, C.J, Genesis Evans, Troy Stilwell, Tober, and a mini Connor Champion part. Contributing filmers: Andre Page & John Diaz.

The Winter That Was / Still Is

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 ♥♥♥

Winter in Spain

[Three weeks ago]
I got a ticket to Barcelona for just under $800. I’m going for 10 days. You wanna roll?
Nah man, I got a bunch of work to do, I should probably chill.

In hindsight, I’m an idiot.

There’s this misguided idea in skateboarding that “Barcelona is blown out.” Fran Molina eradicated any relevance there was to be found in filming at MACBA, Para-lel is gone, and GX skated the short side of Universitat. The end.

In skimming through the SD cards that came back from the trip I turned down, I realized that the perception of Barcelona as a place with nothing to skate beyond what you saw in the DC Video ten years ago is, uh, rather moronic. These guys went to two of the spots that we went to in our two weeks out there in 2011. There are endless bank spots, half of which you’ve never seen in a proper skate video before, i.e. Barcelona’s version of the shitty ledge spot in deep Brooklyn that all the locals avoid venturing out to is some insane, out-of-the-way marble bank. Plus, all those spots are empty at this time of year (notice the lack of any humans in the background of all these clips.) Who really goes to Barcelona in mid-February, you know?

Features Zeb Weisman and Jonah Miller. Filmed by Andre Page while you were walking to the bar in zero-degree weather listening to “Trap Queen” on your phone.
