The QS webstore is now stocked with spring merch. Available in U.S. shops now. Japan, Europe & Canada this week. Please give us this week to catch up on the intial rush of orders e.g. don’t send a “where’s my stuff?” e-mail on Tuesday morning. Thank you everyone for your support in helping us continue to do what we do ♥

The new Helas mixtape makes me want to sell everything I own and move to Europe. Also kinda reminds me of the #fun days of catching Euro vids like TDGAFAU and issues of Puzzle stateside and fantasizing about a perfect world of marble living an ocean away. Not a ton of Lucas footage, minus a few lines and um…THIS.

New iPhone clip from Genny featuring “Don’t Mind” and a repaved Allen Street.

“Low-key we’re already rappers.” An interview with Na-kel Smith and Tyshawn Jones.

After a bondo job, this spot has been going hard in the spring Insta clip cycle.

Bobshirt has a new 20-minute video interview with Gino, where he nerds out on gear, old videos, midtown Manhattan spots (Breezy Ledges was his favorite?!), etc.

This “New Rules” montage out of Baltimore that got posted on Thrasher this weekend has been getting a lot of talk lately. A lot of its more insane tricks are in D.C. (full yell-at-screen mode at the nose manual nollie flip and knobbed Gold Rail tricks), but it’s great to see an underrated scene like Baltimore get some burn.

Behind the scenes of a one-up with Charles Rivard Ph.D.

Cell Jawn #25 via Mitch from Philly (yo everyone please watch your friends’ backs when skating the triangle on 9th Street…) + Philly trip clip via Max Hull that feels post-Love even though its pre-post-Love n shit.

Early edit of Derm’s “Welcome to Politic” part from last year #jersey #jersey #jersey

Here’s a Guardian article about Palace, where you learn that many of the beloved product descriptions on their webstore are Food Network inspired.

Fun lil’ VHS-flavored clip from some Long Island homies.

Quick feature from skateboarder turned New York firefighter, Mike Hernandez, who you might remember from old issues of Strength, Slap, etc. [Warning: bikes.]

Shout out to everyone who contributed to the Addias Ababa skatepark fund that was linked on here a few months ago. They were able to build the first skatepark in Ethiopia with the $35k that was raised.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: The Drakes would eventually lose this game, but Kyle Lowry’s timing with this Hail Mary was unbelievable. Despite having zero emotional stake in either, sorta praying for a Heat-Cavs E.C.F. for the theater.

Spots From the Internet

Via Philly

Creature dropped an official “Welcome to the Team” part for Jon Gardner, which features a whole bunch of his best moments from Bruns 2 — or at least a handful of the most shout-at-the-screen inducing ones. You should still buy Bruns 2 though. Shout out to that phase Marquez went through in 2008 when he tried to film a Creature sponsor-me tape and would drive out to Sayerville 4x a week :)

Hopps put their “Saturday” commercial from the Polar premiere online. Features footage from Keith “Loudest Cheer at Any Premiere” Denley, and Brian Clarke skating the always cool-looking Museum of Natural History benches.

QS crowd fave Derm takes a step back from the crust and does some lines at L.E.S.

New iPhone video via Genesis featuring the N.Y. Ramp Co. quarterpipe, double-curb rainbow concoction at 12th & A, Keith Denley’s first clip of 2016, and other notable developments to occur in lower Manhattan skateboarding this past month.

An interview with Tony Choy-Sutton, the guy behind the lens of Heaven’s Gate, 2016’s frontrunner for spot selection and best avoidance of noted #traps.

Green Zine interviewed Nick V. from LurkNYC. Shout out to Non Fiction.

Boil the Ocean sorta reviews the Polar video, sorta ties it back to Henry Sanchez’s recent “I’m still skating” revelations, and dwells on the big-ification of small companies.

Filed under: “Skaters who seem strangely even more relevant to what’s going on today than when they were actually putting out parts.” Whatever happened to Jake Rupp?

New one from Canadian #skatevideohouse thinktank, CLUBGEAR.

Photojournalistic piece on the skate scene in Iran via Vice.

An artsy and subdued remix video of 2013 Q.S.S.O.T.Y. Leo Gutman’s last part.

The GX1000 video premieres in New York on next Tuesday, April 19th. No info on venue yet, but *assuming* it will be where every skate video premiere in New York is :) Teaser here, and GX photo feature here.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Seventy two, and bumped Kobe Bryant’s final NBA game to ESPN2 in favor of a prospective seventy three.

Quote of the Week: “I heard having heavy ankle weights is actually really bad for you. You’re supposed to work your way up.” — Daniel Kim

#TBT when street skaters had vert sections in the middle of their parts.

Autumn in New York

If you’re trying to get a black QS tee (sold out online), Supreme re-stocked them several days ago. There are less than a dozen white ones left in the web store, so pick one up before Rihanna wears one and they start going for $200 on the Bay.

Baker gave Los Angeles a flashback of April 1992. We’ve reached an age where riot police need to be called to subdue skaters unable to get into a video premiere.

Some more parts from the NJ-based Feelin’ Friendly video are now online. It’s been on Real’s YouTube page for a bit, but this dude Nico Magalhaes’ part is insane. Even if you’re typically not into grew-up-watching-Zero-videos skaters, it has at least five bonafide “OMG/WTF/HOLY SHIT” moments, including (spoiler alert) a 5050 on the Newark Penn Station Hilton wallride (it’s ~waist high), a cab back tail on the Trinity College ledge-to-bank, a kickflip crook on the Passaic bank-to-rail, and both frontside and backside 360s over the handrail and into the bank at the project spot in Rockaway. Eric Dermond’s part has a bit of a Quim Cardona vibe going on. Maybe it’s the headwear choices and olive chinos. Buy Feelin’ Friendly here.

There’s an official video from the Polar Skateboards “Bum Rush the Spot” event. It’s chill that Pontus Alv rocks gear from other European skateboard companies despite owning one himself. We’re all in the same gang.

The Skateboard Mag posted a Vicious Cycle-era Zered Bassett interview from issue #8 (2004?) online. P.S. QS Zered re-edit coming this week.

Some HD footage from the crew that brought you the Steady Lurking video.

While a bunch of pro skaters were in Newark for Street League this past August, Fred Gall showed the Strange Notes crew a side of town much different from the Prudential Center with Scum League.

We went ahead and switched the audio on Kevin Tierney’s Outdated part to “Scatman” and uploaded it to YouTube, so you don’t have to load two videos at once.

The G Man reviewed Cell Out, a Virginia-based skate video that stars Gilbert Crockett and is sponsored by DeWalt power tools.

Hey commenters, watch Jack Sabback’s Moving in Traffic part.

“It’s a white movie. I’m the only black guy in the movie, so it’s a white movie. It’s like a white Pulp Fiction.” — Gucci Mane. Pulp Fiction is a black movie?

Quote of the Week: “Why the fuck is Rihanna taking a train to the airport.” — Roctakon


Cruiser prices may also soon skyrocket. Support your local skate site.
