If your favorite genre of skateboarding is massive kickflips set to Chief Keef, then this past week was particularly relevant to your interests.
It looked like it was bound to be a slow one, with everyone already knowing what the #1 would be, but lest it get lost in a no-context Thrasher video abyss, you should check out Hulkripps 3. Can’t tell much about it beyond a few recognizable Ohio spots, a lot of lllooonnnggg rails, and an abundance of Foundation boards with Nikes, but it manages to create a distinct ~mood~ for a 2018 midwest video without having to resort to artsy Super-8 cut-ins, or really anything that isn’t just a skate clip (e.g. it’s stark just how empty the background of much of the video is, like 85% of the clips were filmed at eight in the morning on a Saturday or some shit.)

***Yes, this got made before the Corey Glick wallride 270 heard around the world came out.
Pretty much lines of all varieties this week — save a kinky crooked grind and a not-neccesarily-QS-vibe #1 that is nevertheless impossible to deny. And don’t let the west coast skateboard industry complex fool you into believing that the actual heart and home of skateboarding didn’t move to Montreal years ago. Let’s skance.
Our webstore relaunches this Monday, October 15 at midnight A.K.A. technically Sunday night with new QS goods. We have a preview of this fall’s product here. Arriving at shops globally now. Available locally from Supreme Lafayette + Brooklyn, Labor, NJ Skateshop (which just moved to Jersey City), and Dover Street Market.

Big week from the always-persistent smith grind kickflip (see also) — the semi-agreeable trick that keeps going, and going, and going. Long-gone are the days when it was a point of contention, as it is as common as a kickflip back tail these days. Preemptive apologies to the “eww, skatepark clips?!” crowd this week, but that #2 coulda/shoulda/maybe been #1.

Yes, we’re well aware that Ishod posted that Muni line on his Instagram a few months ago. Whatever. We are heavy on Glory Challenge stuff this week obviously, but that’s it until next year! (Unless there was some crazy stuff going down at the Paris Glory Challenge yesterday.)
Slow news week this past week (it’s our first bad one since the redesign), basically due to two back-to-back Canadian weekends that really took their toll on office morale. We have a ton of fun stuff in the works, so we’ll be back in full swing with everything next week :) Have a good one, and enjoy the weather obvs.

Been a big past two weeks for guys named Pedro. Dime Glory Challenge recovery took longer than expected, so it has been somewhat of a slow week around the office. We were going to save any inclusions in the countdown from the contest until the official video made its way online. In the meantime, enjoy the final day of summer :)
