Sometimes hats just don’t stay on your head, yaknow?
Jim Hodgson still somehow has yet another round of 90s outtakes. Shants-era Dill footage and some Lackawanna appearances pin at your nostalgic lobes in this one.
Just as many Americans are still recovering from 2008’s financial meltdown, skateboarding is apparently still reeling from the collapse of Alien Workshop 1.0, as evidenced in Yaje Popson’s latest interview with Transworld, and Jake Johnson’s [extended] one with Thrasher. Also note to anyone about to log off and head to D7: “I think I really messed my body up jumping down stuff when I was younger and my body was still growing. If I could give advice I’d say don’t jump down stuff until you’re older.”
Following the first 60-degree Sunday of 2016, noseslide 270 shuv outs have not gained any momentum at a projected resurgence. However, Ron Deily makes a good case for lowbrow frontside 270 out of noseslide tech in the new Zoo in S.F. clip.

Sex Hippies & Sean Pablo in L.A. for a week. “What, is aguy that used to host Jane on Thursdays four years ago skating in L.A. not New York enough?” ;)
Always knew this spot would have a resurrection somehow. Looks dangerous.
The skatepark being built in place of the Fat Kid Spot looks pretty low to the ground :)
Thrasher recently entered the arena of YouTube comps with a five-minute compilation of the greatest handrail tricks, but shouldn’t Gonz’s boardslide down the Banks 9 + his 5050 and front board down the [defunct] 8th & Greene Street rail from the (1986?) Vision video be the first thing? Weren’t those supposedly the first handrail tricks? Is the idea of handrail skating being born in New York akin to pointing out that Christopher Columbus didn’t actually discover America?!
Just realized this QS feature from a year-old issue of Acclaim mag is online. Was kinda the blueprint / draft for the intro of the actual Quartersnacks book.
