#QSTOP10 — Best of 2017

December 19th, 2017 | 12:01 am | Daily News | 3 Comments

As the year comes to a close, we are instating a special TUESDAY edition of the Top 10 to look back on the tricks that got people talking in 2017. This is our first time doing this, and we based it off one metric: impact. These are the tricks that managed to pierce through our oft-derided 2017 attention spans, and caused people to initiate in old-fashioned discourse about skateboarding — be it the ancient art of speaking to another human, or merely #RP-ing the trick on social media with the wide-eye emoji.

As a bonus, we included all the intros from this year’s countdowns. Putting it together kinda reminded us of the skateboard Vine tribute we posted last fall on the occasion of the app’s demise, which will probably always be one of the most important archival works in this website’s history.

December 8th, 2017 | 2:33 am | Daily News | No Comments

It’s one of those weeks where the #1 is quite obvious, especially if you’re awarding #significance based on social media reposts :)

We should be caught up on shipping orders from the first few days of the webstore today. Still a good bit of hats left, plus some sizes in tees, etc. Otherwise, our stockist page for holiday 2017 is officially *officially* OFFICIALLY up to date as of today. Thanks everyone for your support and have a good weekend.
