Everyone go buy Bruns 2 (available both in digital download + hard copy form), and then share in the comments how many times you yelled at your screen during John Gardner’s part. Best part of 2016 thus far. Nik Stain (of Bruns 1 notoriety) has a short-n-sweet part in there too. Quick fifteen-second teaser here.

That time Josh Kalis quit Alien Workshop to ride for Zoo York ;)

Been a minute: HD video blog #20 from Johnny Wilson.

Wish this was three minutes longer… some B-roll of Zered and Bobby De Keyzer skating Barcelona via Richard Quintero. Zered also has this quick new Insta commercial from that knobbed Fort Greene bank thing out now too.

Antonio switch backside noseblunted the trunk of a car.

Yo we out to Amsterdam.

Straight nollie over Black Hubba is a chill move.

Skateboard Story interviewed Josh Stewart about the advent of skate video piracy in the 2000s, how it kinda-sorta subsided, and the always-popular topic of small skate brands reaching critical mass at this moment in time.

iPhone and bro cam featuring Loose Trucks Max and Andrew Wilson via Max Hull.

2 minutes of throwaway and boom-bap from an upcoming video called Counterculture.

“Last week the nation’s ever-deepening identity crisis deepened, again, after a Facebook posting left Americans to contend with the concept of Young Jeezy wearing socks with sandals.” Boil the Ocean on Baker re-tweaking their video format, and Transworld‘s refusal to let magazine videos go the way of video magazines.

Bunch of night lines, and some chill Sade vibes — plus anytime you do a white rapper down Three Up Three Down, your part is guaranteed to get linked up here.

Seldom-available part from one of history’s most underrated skateboarders, Matt Beach. Looks like it came from a mid-2000s Portland video. Song deserves an auto-mute, but then again I’m the one still getting shit on YouTube for editing a minute of footage to work work work work work work

The Welcome to Hell slams section, circa 2016.

Wait, is switch 360 flips not looking good like a known consensus? Switch backside flips, maybe…tough for those to not roll on the ground, but can think of many good-to-great switch tres. For instance: Antonio and Zeb are both incredible switch tre-ers.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Hey man, even if the Lakers’ locker room is an utter shit show right now, you can’t help but admire the team’s subversive creativity.

Quote of the Week: “She was like ‘let’s go to dinner,’ I was like ‘let’s get a beer.’ I didn’t get dinner — and it all went downhill from there.” — Chuck MVP

Ripped Laces did this thing about Pink Floyd songs in skate videos, and it reminded me of this eight-year-old Powers part. Shout out to anyone who walked through the snow to go to the Trife premiere at the N 11th KCDC location:

Pull Up On A Spot

Size runs are thinning out over in our webstore.

Boys of Summer is online in full. Logan Lara QS part drops 1/1/2018.

I do all this… on my iPhone 6New bro cam edits:Instagram Direct #13” from Johnny Wilson, “Hit” via Genesis Evans, “Linger” via Jesse Alba, and “Funza Summer 2015” via Mike Heikkila. NY Ramp Co. is #trending super hard in every phone edit these days :) ♫ You must have an Android ‘cuz you ain’t got Emojis

The Warschauer Benches are on the shortlist of the funnest spots I’ve ever skated, and they’re nothing more than a better version of the Newport blocks from ~15 years ago. Kingpin has a full feature on their creation and history. Amazing how the formula for a perfect skate spot is no more sophisticated than decent ground + wooden benches + metal, and how often that goes ignored.

Isle’s Vase video is premiering on Thursday, November 19 at 8 P.M. and Paul Young’s Bleach video is premiering on Wednesday, November 25 at 8 P.M. Guess what theater? If you guessed the Imax on 68th Street, then you guessed wrong.

Did you know Fully Flared premiered eight years ago to the day? Village Psychic looked back on Anthony Pappalardo’s seminal yet at-the-time misunderstood section, which inspired legions of twenty-somethings to scour Bushwick for unchartered crust, caused a 5% spike in applications to Pratt’s sculpture program, and skyrocketed the demand for brown chino fabric among the world’s textile mills.

“I miss having Skinner as a friend, but I miss him even more as an enemy.” Boil the Ocean on the current state of the skater / security guard relationship.

Footage of the 5050 + quick set-up barhop in front of Wavy’s is in the Local Express friends section, although no footage could really do justice to how crazy that is.

Monster Children interviewed Pat O’Dell in light of Epicly Later’d much-needed return.

Gino talks about all his major sponsor changes throughout the years.

Some bits of New York footage in the extras from the Florida-based Exhibit video.

Thought this “spot” was a joke. It wasn’t.

Dude you’re probably gonna be really bummed — but…the Hooters Rail is gone. What a fun spot! Shout out to Rodney Torres for being the first one to skate it, and to Connor Champion for switch nosesliding it just before the plaza got leveled.

Dreams do come true. Tha Tour 2 is on the way. Rich.. gang..

QS Sports Desk [Non] Play of the Week: This made me laugh a bit…”When you wanna be the Warriors but you ain’t the Warriors.”

Quote of the Week
Kuz: “Just give me the word, I’ll quit my job and break up with my girlfriend.”
Inquisitive Gentleman: “You have a girlfriend?”
Kuz: “No, but if I did, I’d break up with her.”

Much love and prayers to all our friends out in Paris.

Quartersnacks Legends Series: Andre Page

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

September 30th, 2015 | 4:27 am | Video & Remixes | 7 Comments

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.
