Rainy Update – Max Palmer, Cyrus & John Choi in ‘1one1’

Once a surefire bet for a bi-weekly edit, the always in-demand Johnny Wilson now only emerges from the unregulated cigarette smoke of New York’s hottest nightclubs to drop an edit maybe quarterly. And so, fans of everyone’s favorite skater Max Palmer, everyone’s favorite hucker John Choi, and Johnny’s less nightlife-afflicted and less-prone-to-holding-a-bat brother Andrew have turned to the alternative media for footage of Paych alumni skating knocked over telephone poles.

Sean Dahlberg, whose 2012 video Mama’s Boys brought us the first full-lenth Cyrus part and what was at the time the most comprehensive Max Palmer part in existence, just uploaded an edit with those guys, plus some dope footage of the boys skating the only skatepark in New York that requires helmets + pads, and John Choi doing a bomb switch 360 flip. Do we start a change.org petition for a 2017 John Choi QS part?

Is it weird I’m afraid to watch the Vans video but have watched this three times today?

Had some leftover footage from the past couple trips + a few things that might’ve potentially ended up in the now [probably?] defunct QS Drop Offs series. Threw this # feel good # clip together :) It’s a spring-themed fall video, and though it has summer footage from foreign counties, we limited it to places where the summer feels like it does in the city right now (66 today!) Heard a new skatepark that took thirty years to complete just opened up, maybe see you guys over there later ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Our capsule for Nike SB will is available today. It includes a limited colorway of the Bruin Hyperfeel in chill sandy suede, a longsleeve pocket crewneck with the classic Quartersnacks arch embroidery, and a Lambo wool coach jacket that your girlfriend is probably going to steal from you once she realizes you’re shining harder in ~pink~ than she is.

You can check out there digital lookbook at quartersnacks.com/nikesb. Photography by Zach Malfa-Kowalski and Will Robson-Scott. Creative direction by Alex Dymond.

For the collection, we returned to some of the increasingly seldom-seen spots responsible for this site’s very existence: FedEx, Italian Ledges, C.I.A. Ledge, and cutty corners of midtown only skateable at night. (Yeah, we still got stuck at T.F. West trying to film for this thing once duh.) For the second half, we turned northward, to the bastion of cultural export that has defined American life for the past six years, best known as Canada. Who knows, there might be a wall between us and our Canadian friends within the next four years too, so we had to get it in while we still could.

Thanks to everyone for their love and support on this project ♥

Quartersnacks turns eleven years old today. Thank you everyone for the love throughout this now decade-plus. We’ll try not to blow it, at least for a few more years ;) Quotes over the Years postsPart 1, part 2, part 3.

Two posts related to yesterday: Remember and TWS on 9/11 from February 2002.

Call Me 917 has been teasing quick bits of footage from a recent midwest trip for their upcoming collaboration with Nike SB: one here and one there. The full thing supposed to drop on September 17th. And if you’re a person afraid of holding objects with printed words on them, someone on Slap scanned the Thrasher article about the trip.

“Do you like skating in New York?” “Not really.” #respect, me either tbh. Andrew Allen interviewed Aidan Mackey for Heaps Chat.

Byrdgang 2, the new one from the QS office’s favorite adolescent skateboard crew, is now live to remind all of us what skateboarding here in high school felt like.

Uploaded Max’s Sure part to YouTube just because.

It’s like a Goldfish reunion! Mike Carroll at the Santa Monica Courthouse.

Pretty sure this part is actually from the new Heroin video (could be wrong), but this Nick Michel “Losing Come Up Tour” part has a heavy focus on New York-based rock spots, including the blunt pop-in at Battery Park City from last week’s #QSTOP10.

Varial flip up, varial flip on flat, and varial flip down is is one of the more subversive moments for recent line choreography at the Chase two-up-five-down steps.

With early-2000s nostalgia still running high a la low-def noseslide tricks and the ressurection of the Pace Ledge, maybe kickflip shiftys are due for a comeback?

Switch back lip down Blubba and thirty more seconds of new Yaje footage.

Free Skate Mag interviewed Aesthetics Ryde or Die alumnus, Joey Pepper.

Who ever thought product description beef could be so interesting?

It feels like there have been five of these but oh well. Another Huf T.F. West jam clip.

Damn, Future is still pissed at Ciara? Has anyone ever rhymed “Soho” with something besides “Manolo?” Also, isn’t Ape Shit like a year late?

Bobby & Friends – The Last* Copenhagen Clip You’ll Ever See on the Quartersnacks Homepage

Did we singlehandedly ruin Copenhagen? No, probably not. Did we contribute to turning it into Tulum for boys, to the point where everyone goes there for “vacation” and sees the same people from the side of the ocean that they just left? Not no.

Just as Kramer blew up the big “secret” of swimming in the East River through enthusiastic word of mouth, there’s only so many times a cosmopolitan, fashion-forward skateboard blog site could write about the virtues of the world’s greatest place (full disclaimer: I’m a Paris guy), and not have at least a few earthlings leave their computer screens and hop on a flight.

It was an obsession that began with the Ragers Inc. clip, filmed during the world’s greatest skateboarder’s tenure in the world’s greatest place, circa 2011. Since then, it has become the epicenter of the world’s most absurd spots, and “home to skateboarding’s SXSW.” A few dozen Copenhagen trips between the two, and Danish-set skateboarding content on QS has hit critical mass. Maybe we’ll check out Bucharest?

The last* Copenhagen clip you’ll ever see on the Quartersnacks homepage features Bobby Worrest, Hjalte Halberg, Andrew Wilson, Hugo Boserup, Max Palmer, Cyrus Bennett, Alex Olson, Oskar Rosenburg-Hallberg, Ishod Wair, Ryan Bobier, Ville Wester. Never again!

Filmed and edited by Johnny Wilson for Nike SB.

*Jk, see you next June :) xoxo
