Alex Olson started a lil’ skate talk show called “Skate Wise” on Know Wave Radio. The first episode is on Soundcloud. It’s the talk show equivalent of a bunch of dudes sitting around on a couch ranting about skating after a session. No real format or try-hard radio personas, which is nice. “I love Ishod, Ishod is sick. Yeah, he drinks beer.”

2013 Q.S.S.O.T.Y, Leo Gutman, has a new jazz-tinged mini part for Acapulco Gold.

Frozen in Carbonite on the custom, 1-of-1 Sal 23 Nike SB Dunk Low colorway. “I’m not sure if I’m going to skate them or just stunt around for the summer. In any event, as you can imagine, they pair well with Light-Ass Denim.™”

Jason Dill: Post-Mindfield and pre-“cherry” remix video.

Keelan Dadd? No disrespect to anyone listed, but the #1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 Epicly Later’d that “needs” to happen is Muska. #10 is Sheffey.

Video blog #211 from the Beef Patty guys, with some block-long Max Palmer lines.

Here’s the Richmond, VA-based Recordings of Boardings video, Off the Record. The RAW VIDEO was online all weekend, but got taken down and is now only available for preorder in hard copy form. Based on one viewing of that project, Boston seems to be one of the final east coast refuges for jean shorts. Could the Celtics be in the market for a Josh Harrellson acquisition?

After seeing one in Static 4, and another one in this Capita Skateboards clip, it might be time to officially place frontside 5050 backside 360 outs on 2014’s #trendwatch. Also could happily spend the remainder of human existence without hearing another Big L or Wu-Tang song in a skate video, but Redman might forever have a pass :)

The all-subway skating section from Tengu is now on YouTube. Shout out M.N.M.F.T.B.

They’re trying to make make the Santa Monica Courthouse a legal skate spot. Of course, it involves skateboarders being patient, not stupid, etc, so there’s an uphill climb ahead. America is utter garbage for skateboarding, btw #eurowithdrawl.

The security guards at that new pop over rail by the 7th Avenue banks are going to have a fun summer. P.S. They’re already reknobbing the ledges at Seaport 5.0.

QS Sports Desk: Melo’s opting out. Who cares.

tompkins morning

None of those leaves are on the trees anymore :( Photo by Emilio Cuilan.

Pls buy a shirt 2 show us u care thx.

A brief, McFeely-heavy montage of Solo Jazz leftovers.

Some psychos and parts from Cyrus Bennett, Jacob Gottlieb, Genesis Evans, Adrian Vega and Jason Byoun in Looney Bin, the new LurkNYC project due out next month.

Skaters Atlas makes the case for Stuttgart, Germany being one of the more underrated European skate destinations in their latest installment. Stripper empowerment anthems seem like an odd choice or European skate montages though. (P.S. Rich Homie Quan beat Juicy J in his own game by composing the best mildly feminist strip club song of 2013.) You can’t judge herrrrrrrrrr.

Reda reveals who threw the mystery water in Chomp On This. How did we all forget to include Reda’s part (see #4) in the “Best Parts of 2000s” discussion from a week ago?

Someone made an edit of only the Dylan Reider footage from Huf’s Euro tour video.

Teenagers ripping around New York in Clipstack, a new 30-minute video with a bunch of people you’ll recognize from Tompkins.

Congrats to Zered on his new Transworld cover and to Tyshawn Jones for his first coverage in a skate mag.

An interview with the guys behind RAW, one of the east’s better small brands.

Wade Fyfe has a few New York clips in his new promo for Studio Skateboards.

Shout out to anyone who has seen the Watermelon videos. Lil’ Chris grew up. 2nd Nature and the Watermelon man are also throwing a best trick contest at the 2nd Nature park on Saturday. Flyer here. Lil’ Chris is probably going to win.

This news might affect .00001% of the people who check this website (i.e. those who are better at skating than a Peruvian five-year-old), but the 58th Street white hubba is now knobbed.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Jared Dudley’s Harlem Globetrotter assist was chill. Also, despite growing up hating the Bulls, one can’t help but think the basketball gods’ newfound cruelty towards Chicago is getting ridiculous.

Thanks to anyone who bought some gear. Your package should arrive this week.

KCDC Skateshop teamed up with Complex magazine to bring you a list of the 25 best skateboard graphics of 2011. They had some glaring omissions, most notably Skate Mental’s “Creeping on a Set-Up” Bone Thugs homage, and our homie Jonah Miller’s “Stay Hungry” series for RAW New England. (RAW’s Cormega board is pretty cool too.)

Never saw this Flipmode-affiliated clip from 2009 before. Phil Rodriguez kills it, there’s footage from the UWS-favorite Soldiers and Sailors Monument, and proof that human beings actually skate(d) the original metal Rockaway Park, which, if you remember, got Hurricane Irene’d real bad.

NYSkateboarding linked up some photos by Yuri Shibuya last week. There are seven small galleries of New York-based stuff spanning from 1998 to 2008 over on YuriShibuya.com. The resolution on all of them unfortunately sucks. To make up for it, there’s a photo of Ted Barrow on there, switch crooking a Philly step on Hester Street. (Fun anecdote: We got kicked out of that spot in 2004 by a Chinese man wielding a butcher knife and haven’t been back since.)

Continuing along with the whole “IS VHS THE NEW SUPER-8?” thing

Just because you can do a hardflip late flip, doesn’t mean you should. Gross. (Ok, if you’re playing P.J. Ladd or P-Rod in S.K.A.T.E. for some reason, you can do a hardflip late flip.)

Here’s one for the economics majors specializing in broke skateboarder diets: Do dollar burgers serve as a legitimate threat to New York’s burgeoning dollar slice industry? With McDonald’s, Wendy’s, and Burger King all charging over $1 for burgers, and even dollar hot dogs quickly becoming a thing of the past, can this new trend sustain itself and expand into more skateboarder-heavy neighborhoods? (The one in question is on 39th, on the westside, and there are no spots nearby.)
