Has the site fallen off a bit as of late? Sure. Was Quartersnacks Vogue week (see #19) just a really high concept editorial week where we barely post anything on the said theme because we’re under-qualified to report on it? Definite possibility. Are we looking towards a bright future of reportage on New York skateboard minutiae, silly remix videos, and mediocre skate clips? Absolutely!
Jasper Dohrs’ Thirty Purse part is full of quick-footed curbery, wallrides on chain links, ambitious heaves over the First Avenue bike lane, and is entirely filmed in New York.
End of an era, although it probably needed an update unless you’re a nostalgia over function type of guy ;) Riverside Skatepark is getting a cement re-design, which includes a bowl and halfpipe. And wait, is that a…regular, straight ledge?!
Genesis made made a July 4th clip to the Song of the Summer, circa 2000.
Pep Kim made a quick mini doc on Aaron Herrington’s rise to sketchy 5050s on sketchier handrail fame. The 5050 on the Riverside Drive & 111th rail is still ♥
Diamond Days #89. Keith is proud of this one, but his QS part is still R.I.P.
Always nice to see Newark footage. “Cityscapes” via Municipal Skateboards.
Village Psychic runs down a history of strange skater + sponsor pairings. Weird, because I have Greg Lutzka’s one and only Krooked pro model hanging on the wall above my computer…
Carroll and Chico at the L.E.S. Park on the week of It Was Written‘s 20th bday.
Gotta appreciate people’s optimism when embarking on the uphill journey of rebooting a once beloved but ultimately short lived skateboard company. Here’s an interview about the Menace reboot.
Quick B-sides clip via Russian Bob.
Hey, I’m here for the half cab flips and Alicia Keys samples.
QS Sports Desk: Signing Joakim Noah for four years was, um, an interesting decision, but gotta admit that this interview rewired some of the headscratching, although it probably won’t mean much once November rolls around, and who’s really stupid enough to care about the Knicks anyway I dunno I’m out man.
