This episode is an office fave, in that it includes Genny, Zhu and Connor. (Not going to pretend like the QS HQ is not some heavily-biased media enterprise with very blatant leanings yaknow?) Also, that bank in Paris that’s seen a surge in visibility this past calendar year has been on a real heavy string of top 10 appearances, in that it brings exemplary flip trick form more than any other spot appearing in the current web clip cycle. Have a good weekend.

The entire week became a wash after that Vans video dropped. We capped it out at two inclusions, and left out the kinked rail heard around the world on purpose. Partly because everyone has seen it on every form of social media that exists, partly because word is that it didn’t even count ;) and because the trick that did get picked for #1 was on a rail that we hold a special bias for.
All around insane week in the skateboard world. Could’ve probably done a full top ten off the Sour Skateboards video alone, so you should go watch that if you have yet to do so. Have a good weekend.

It’s 2016, we elected the guy from The Apprentice to be the leader of the country, Prince is dead, and there’s a rap song in a Zero video. Gonna hit up Vegas to put down a bet on that Todd Falcon Skater of the Year win ASAP.
Also, Away Days went online yesterday. It would’ve been exhausting to comb through it for this, so it got left out entirely in favor of things from the past week you might’ve missed — like the youngest Noseslider of the Year contender in QS history.
Enjoy the day off and buy something from a skateshop today :)

Life goes on this week :/ More skatepark stuff than usual, some fire lines, a bluntslide down an entire hill, etc. It’s basically going to be May outside today, so probably watch this, quit your job, and see you outside :)
