Day zero and beyond ♥ TF @ 1: Ten Years of Quartersnacks available now.

HD video blog #16 from Johnny Wilson and friends.

Los Angeles-based video blog from Andrew (?!?!) Wilson?!?!

Bob Shirt’s ten-minute video interview with Joey Alvarez is earnest and informative. He runs through the history of little-known companies like C.R.E.A.M and Metropolitan, shares some Banks stories, and talks about Keith Harrison — whose twenty-year-old Seaport line predicted an entire sub-sect of L.E.S. park street style.

The Riverside Park resurgence is already in full swing.

New B-sides clip from the Report Potholes / In Crust We Trust squad. #jersey

Someone remixed all of Tiago’s [park] footage from the D.C. tour video, which includes what is more than likely the greatest switch pop shove it ever done in human history.

Here’s a promo for the Bailar video that includes Shredmaster Keith shredding around Soho. Video due out next month. Looks like a good time.

“People in smaller cities with abandoned ball/tennis courts seem like the have the more fun skating than anyone in Los Angeles or New York.” — Roc

On that same note…new one from the Sex Hippies squad in Western Mass.

I’m guessing you probably caught on to the new #streetlife-heavy F.A./Hockey clip? Pretty sure Ben K. is the first one to ever slide that rail off the eight-stair at CBS.

When the recent past isn’t as recent as you think: Bobby Worrest recaptured. Back 3 curb cut + backside 180 switch crook from Right Foot Forward is an all-time great.

Five trick fix from switch and nollie pop king, Brendan Carroll.

Thanksgiving at the Bushwick Blue Park

Menace is back! …in enamel pin form.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: We’re big on assists at the Sports Desk. Sad this guy is spending the foreseeable future in playoff spot-chasing territory.

Quote of the Week: “If English was my first language, I’d be a famous comedian.” — Chuck MVP

^^^Best sports rap song in who knows how long, but that’s a biased opinion from someone who discovered NBA basketball during peak Penny/Shaq Orlando era ;)

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.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the shop and bought some gear this weekend. Everything should be available in the webstore by mid-September. If you want to check out the IRL #TFREPORT wall, it’ll be up for a bit at New Fancy Foods on Leonard Street and Broadway (a few blocks from Black Hubba.) Shout out to Street Fam.

These dudes out in Philly rigged their own wear test video of the Quartersnacks dunk.

R.I.P. to the most popular spot in New York: July – August 2014.

SML Talk runs down the list of notable fakie heelflips done by someone besides Weiger. Add in every single person who has done one in a game of S-K-A-T-E, as it’s the most respectable annoying trick you could possibly do. (The most annoying not-respectable trick you could do is a nollie backside bigspin, obvs.)

More Static IV follow-ups: Slam City Skates has an interview with Aaron Herrington, and Street Canoe has an interview with Brendan Carroll, where he controversially proclaims his love for TF West flat over its eastern counterpart.

Ishod and Andrew Wilson rip around FDR Park.

The week in Tompkins-based iPhone clips: “A Pile of Clips” and “Batch.”

Aside from standard-issue Tompkins antics, this website’s second most-discussed brand of skateboarding is EuroTech™. Therefore we are contractually obligated to point you in the direction of this Route One interview with Javier Sarmiento. *Cue nostalgic music supervision*

Having been informed that “bungee cords are not a ting,” Jordan Hoffart opted to push his way towards a boardslide halfway around southern California.

Ah, ah, ah, but the remix…

2012’s Nevermind video is online in full.

Some dudes making a NY/NJ/Boston video edited their teaser video to Keef, but more importantly, is that low metal loading dock ledge at ~1:16 actually in NJ? Where?

Gonna start saving for next summer’s France trip now.

Quote of the Week: “There’s nothing worse than a hot girl on a cleanse.” — Barnes

Yes, this has been the least exciting lead-up week to a Jeezy album in QS history…

Start of Summer / Memorial Day Weekend 2014 Montage

May 23rd, 2014 | 3:25 am | Video & Remixes | 12 Comments

dre all white

All white season is upon us.

We’re up to nine Christmas clips and nine Start of Summer clips…

Features Josh Velez, Rob Gonyon, Keith Denley, Matthew Perez, Connor Champion, Troy Stillwell, Kadeem Walters, Lurker Lou, Emilio Cuilan, Elijah Cole, Lui Elliot, Andre Page, Eli Reed, Brendan Carroll, Jack Sabback, Zach Baker, Sweet Waste, Will Robson-Scott, Pad Dowd, Kevin Tierney and Tyler Tufty.

This Memorial Day Weekend also commemorates four years since QS relaunched as a modern, somewhat frequently updated enterprise. Prior to that (2005-2010), it was a depository of inside jokes that got updated bi-weekly. It has sometimes been a struggle to keep this thing current during those four years, but it’s been fun. Four years is a long time — when the site relaunched, Waka was the most #relevant rapper out, our intro post had Jersey Shore references, Amare Stoudemire played for the Suns and they were in the Western Conference Finals, and Monday Links happened on Saturdays — so we’d like to pat ourselves on the back a bit. We’d also like to thank you for visiting, talking shit in the comments, and any kind words or referrals throughout the years.

Hard to even remember what life was like before Future.

Anyway, if you want 25% off anything that’s left in the webstore, enter MEMORIALDAY at checkout. We on dat J. Crew shit fam. Discount does not apply to shipping and expires on Monday night ♥♥♥ xoxo ;) Enjoy the long weekend.

Merry Christmas

merry christmas

With each passing year, it gets tougher to not acknowledge that Gucci Mane has three Christmas songs on the low, especially after straining cheesy Christmas music for the past nine clips. (Yeah, this is somehow the ninth one.) But even if the #musicsupervision department is backlogged due to not having utilized “Used 2″ and “Paranoid” yet, maybe one clip a year that isn’t partial to drum machines is okay…

This somehow ended up being the most daylight-heavy Christmas clip of the nine, due to November and December being unseasonably brick. To make up for it, there was one miracle day when we didn’t get kicked out of World Trade, as evidenced by maybe a fifth of this clip being filmed there. Win some, lose some. Merry Christmas.

Features Brendan Carroll, Keith Denley, Lurker Lou, Tyler Tufty, Zered Bassett, Dave Caddo, Sweet Waste, Elijah Cole, Tony Durao, Calen Knauf, Josh Velez, Andre Page, Alexander Mosley and Connor Champion.

Thanks to Joe Cups, Andre Page and Rob Harris for contributing footage.

Other Christmas Gifts: It’s mostly at skateparks, but there’s 50 seconds of new Gino footage out and an awesome mini doc about the governor of New Jersey, Fred Gall.
