Pitcrew flooded and needs your help.

New gear on Alltimers.com, including limited edition DJ Thando tees.

“Harold and Muska are waiting for you to go skate.” Anthony Shetler has an hour-long interview with Zered Bassett on his podcast. It covers anything you would ever want to know about a pro who came up on the east coast: Osiris demos, 16 Skateboards, getting on Zoo, not moving west, etc. Ad libs by Mr. T.

Village Psychic interviewed practitioner of unlikely switch maneuvers, Ben Kadow.

Arto Saari interviewed Pontus Alv #scandinavians.

HD video blog #8 from Johnny Wilson.

Pretty sick time capsule from Jim Hodgson: an Asbury Park, NJ Vans Triple Crown Contest from 1998. Fred Gall still with a flip trick-heavy repertoire, Billy Rohan in a Horty shirt, and every dude skating in a backwards hat.

Peter Smolik low-key responsible for 68% of today’s technical skateboarding. All hail.

The Times has an article about the keyholder spot in Long Island City.

Would you rather watch Gino _____ than x modern pro do x trick? You’re in luck.

TWS has a chill “style” animation video for all the nerds.

Deathwish’s east coast tour video has a bit of New York footage.

Video remix contests really bring out the full music supervision spectrum. Aaron Herrington x Company Flow & Aaron Herrington x Jeezy the Snowman.

Speaking of music supervision, SMLTalk explores the history of non-English language song choices in skate videos. FWIW, even though he’s maybe the poster child for this sub-genre of video part, J.B’s best part was to an English-language song:

Shout out to the bros at Black Sheep in Charlotte. They got a video dropping this year.

ICYMI: Thrasher posted its interview with A.V.E. online. That Ted Nugent song from The DC Video was perfect; his psychotic worldviews can’t take that away.

In memory of an appropriately bleak brutalist British skate spot…#alliteration

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Javale McGee is only 100 miles away now.

Quote of the Week: “This white bird told me she wants to teach me how to surf. I can’t even swim. It’s gonna take her the rest of her life.” — Carl Williams

Look at it this way: In two weekends, it’ll start getting dark around 7 P.M. again. That means we’re almost out of it. Spring is near. (Hopefully.)

Thanks mom, thanks dad… ♬

If this guy seriously 5050ed up the Rockaway Rail

Not sure the Cellski song from Stevie’s world renown “Nut Grab” commercial is in any way appropriate music supervision for Dylan Reider, but that’s what the dudes at Muckmouth chose for the “non embarrassing” edit of his new Calvin Klein Huf commercial. It’s just all the skate tricks from the part, which is cool.

Imagine if they reedited it to “Latch” though? #lol #jk #jokez #notno. Anyway, Diamond Days #74. Yaje still rips. (“There was a long silence, then that one dude, the one with the beard, was like ‘Do you even have one single traditional flash tattoo?'”)

Illegal incentives at the Federal Reserve, etc. in Video Blog #212 from Johnny Wilson.

The “Summer Trip to New York” clips are finally starting to roll in! Some French guys skate around the city and one of them darkslides Black Hubba.

Someone compiled all of the footage Brian Wenning and Anthony Pappalardo have stacked since fading out of skateboarding’s focal spotlight in the 2010s. It’s weird. Never a bad time to reminisce over this one though.

Chris Nieratko interviews Stevie Williams about Love Park at Love Park.

A new clip from the Beerics crew, which features a solid batch of Governor Gall footage from Shorty’s. P.S. Here’s his turtorial on how to sorta Bondo cracks.

The Baker/Deathwish team v.s. D7. Anyone who has taken visiting skaters around to spots in New York can attest to the fact that many talented / seasoned pros have stepped away from D7 after seeing how rugged it was up close. These guys killed it.

Black Dave and Elijah Cole daily warm-ups in Harlem.

Whether or not there is space in modern skateboarding for a resurrected éS Accel remains to be seen (i.e. fond childhood memories of summers spent in Lakai Staples will immediately be tainted once you see the bulkiness that shoe in person today), but until then, SMLTalk list-iscized the 10 best moments in Accel history.

#TRENDWATCH2017 = Natas spin kickflip outs. Wow.

Stuff that never gets old: Watching Javier Sarmiento skate MACBA.

Ice cream trucks? That’s what y’all are upset about now?
