Sable is a new 15-minute video by Matt Velez, pretty much filmed all over the east coast with some good bits in New York. Features parts from Josh Wilson, Dick Rizzo and others from the Bronze fam, and a really sick ender part from Mark Humienik.

This four-minute Southbank iPhone compilation with all the PWBC dudes is a good time. Features the world’s best skateboarder. Also gotta re-link the “Sission” vid from 2012 any time the topic of Southbank bro cam edits comes up since it’s the best :)

First new video blog from Johnny Wilson & bros since Sure dropped.

The entire QS office and all known affiliates are really into the new Clubgear clip.

A few good alternate iPhone angles from “Core.”

There are some wild moves in this very #current Spike Lamy part. The Zalfa special from the top of the wall into the mini-bank on 2nd Avenue is insane.

Vice ran a cool feature about how skateboarding blew up in the parts of New Orleans most affected by Hurricane Katrina, and how race-based perceptions re: skating itself began to change as a result.

Someone made a minute-long remix of Rodrigo’s footage from an Adidas Madrid trip when he first got on in 2013. It’s all amazing, but no clue how / why they left the fakie flip out, considering there hasn’t been a better fakie flip done since (7:43 mark)…

SMLTalk interviewed Lurker Lou, who somehow still gets shit for ruining skateboarding.

Bobby Worrest on sketchy Pulaski cops, N.Y. v.s. L.A, etc.

…aaannnddd Village Psychic interviewed Danny Renaud.

Sorta kinda forgot that Alien Workshop “came back.” TWS has a feature online about the AWS’ resurrection and its new team, though they didn’t ask about why the OVO thing fell through or controversial comparisons to Beverly Hills Cop 3.

Some iPhone vids from various crews around the city: Street Urchins 3 & Wheels.

The lil’ homie Bieber is #down for #core #skateboarding.

Shout out to Tufty for reminding me about “I’m something like a phenomenon, I’ll kidnap your kids with their pajamas on.” Where’s Hell Rell?

#SKATEEVERYFEWDAYS

Very underrated hip-hop white guy icon.

Check out this clip of Tony Durao, undoubtedly one of the most talented young skaters out east right now, skating the Nike Go Skate Day barge from last weekend. Tony’s new web part will go live on QS next Monday, July 8. It’s insane.

Not as exciting (unlike the kids, we can only skate every few days, hence the #skateverydamnday hashtag’s appropriation for the socialite 21-and-over crowd), but here’s the forty seconds of footage we were able to procure in a few hours of skating on the barge. Mainly posting this because it includes Corey Rubin sightings and those are hard to come by outside of John Wilson-produced videos. There are rumors going around about the obstacles from that park getting donated somewhere, which would be nice considering it’s better than the Tribeca Park.

Wow, Chrome Ball is shutting down :(

In brighter news, Chrome Ball has a sick new post from the weekend dedicated to the art of curb skating, though people really need to relax with assuming everything young people do now is done for the sake of “hipster 80s throwback irony.”

Never saw this when it came out in 2012 — Sneeze magazine interviews Chad Muska about his first board graphic, providing some interesting details on how the skate industry works, specifically how a board gets made and printed.

An iPhone clip from the crew behind the \m/ video. There’s also discussion about art, influences and human nature in the comments for this non-iPhone clip from the same squad.

They started uploading more parts from Mama’s Boys on YouTube. Only sixty left.

Some B-roll from the great In Crust We Trust video. (Full video here.)

Boil the Ocean discusses the value of powerslides in 2013 and contends that Adidas web clips are the new Transworld videos.

Speaking of Adidas web clips, with their latest Madrid venture, Rodrigo TX joins some lofty company in the running for best fakie flip ever done, likely somewhere between Kalis at Newport (the undebatable #1 on this list) and Jerry Hsu at Three Up Three Down (the less-fashionable SF one.) Fakie flips are a big topic around here.

“Stop it, we give McDonalds hundreds every day.”

Someone made this.

The Knicks are stupid, but what else is new?
