Went from doing one of these once every month to once every quarter. Might try and pick it up a bit this year, but we’ll see what happens. Request line is open ;)
Figured we could annotate B.A’s heavy media presence from last year with a conversation about a light topic: inspirational old skate video parts. It is pretty unexpected how so many older street guys (especially east coast bred ones) end up picking tons of vert and transition-based skating.

Dropped the ball on this series as of late, but what better way to spark it up again than with the guy people would rather watch push? Save one seminal ledge skating part, Gino’s picks were completely unexpected, transition-heavy and refreshing. He even called back a minute after we got off the phone to say he couldn’t just list five and had to add one in (it’s the one from 1997 by the way), hence the asterisk next to the five.
Always open to requests for Five Faves, and thanks for bearing with us as we begin to pull the Quartersnacks Editorial Department off the Fall-Off List ;) ♥

As a coincidental addendum to the “Life on Video” series that has been going on all week, here’s a quick rundown of what gets one of the greatest champions of classic plaza-based street skating hyped. Stoked he included a certain two-song part from a personal favorite in there ;) Have a good weekend everybody.

You’d think that by targeting someone in a younger demographic for one of these — Sean’s is probably the youngest person to do one — we’d steer selections away from the more recurring choices. Then you realize there’s a reason certain things are classics, yaknow? There’s always gonna be some thirteen-year-old who is just discovering the Rolling Stones, just as Gino’s nollie back heel off the three is never not going to be #relevant to anybody who enjoys the act of skateboarding ;)

It is a known fact that Canadians excel over Americans in many facets of living, yet never get the credit. Skateboarding is no exception, as many talents have fallen by the wayside of American attention spans in favor of inferior homegrown products.
During our DGK company retreat, we had a chance to speak with one of the few Canadians who broke through the glass ceiling and into the hearts of American ledge enthusiasts everywhere. We’re talking about none other than the legendary Wade D., the only Canadian to make the c. 2012 phat stylez master list. It should come as no surprise that he’s a fan of both the [Italian] American Gino and the Canadian Gino.
Quartersnacks for DGK in fine skate shops now :) Available online from 35th Ave, Black Sheep, FTC, Premier, Mom’s Sweet Shop, Palace 5ive, Pitcrew and Uprise.
