Really confused with what’s going on over at the Girl camp… Guy and Koston leave after 20+ years, and in the same week, we find out that Forrest Edwards got dropped from Zero — yet there hasn’t been a single sighting of Forrest’s face with the word “welcome” under it on the Crailtap Instagram. Anyone know what gives?

Gonna have to agree with Kalis on this one. This guy is insane. 2015 Q.S.S.O.T.Y. frontrunner. No clue why he didn’t skate to “Stick Talk” though.

“I honestly get wet. I could listen to him ramble on about skateboarding for hours.” Apparently chicks dig us because we don’t care about them — or just care about skating with the squad way more than chasing girls and that’s hot? (And maybe because we steal from them?) However, pretty sure no skateboarder or human has ever turned down sex in order to listen to The Weeknd unfettered. 56 Nights? Maybe.

Those pipes on the eastern side of Trendy Triangle were appropriately #trending heavy this past weekend. Pretty sure they won’t be there tomorrow. Pipe it up while you can.

Five-minute montage from some bros in the Bronx.

Village Psychic has a rad new “Trip to New York”-ish video / Grady Moquin and Shane Brown part, with a cool vibez and sick spotz + a fire Quim Cardona cameo :)

Reynolds shuvin’ in ‘n out of noseslides.

Thanks for the book review. We tried and shit.

Friends Section” is the new seven-minute video featuring the KCDC squad. That *almost* at House of Vans @ the ~3:48 mark is absolutely nuts.

Interviewing people in bars is *IN* this fall: part two of Gino’s “Free Lunch” where he breaks down the common phenomenon of watching someone’s part and not being able to remember a single trick, and Zered has a quick one for What Youth.

Every (most?) tricks done down Hubba Hideout in six and a half minutes.

All of these people / tricks are absurd.

A day in beautiful Paterson, New Jersey with German Nieves. It ain’t about Fetty Wap.

New midtown marble.

Plies been getting a lot of burn for that ig’ “Ritz Carlton” video this past week, but just remember that only a few months ago, he came the closest anyone has come to peak-Young Jeezy levels of motivational speaking since…peak era Young Jeezy.

Seven or eight years before Katy Perry was dancing alongside some sharks for Superbowl 49’s halftime show, she was at Beatrice, putting her number into Mike G’s flip phone. Not ashamed to have ran this as a homepage photo twice before. Photo by Sam Salganik.

America.

New Juicy Elbows winter montage with some #relaxing #musicsupervision. (McCarren Skatepark: So shitty, it’s a #street spot.) The varial flip, [almost] varial heel line is sick.

Fascinated by this odd, new sub-genre of New York skateboard videos where it’s clear that everyone involved has a job (i.e. living above dollar dumpling -class.)

New York’s premier January and February getaway is still going strong. Billy Rohan, Watermelon Alex, and others in Acapulco Gold’s Puerto Rican excursion.

Not sure why anyone would call a skate video Smegma (2014 skate video title sexualization gone awry?), but it’s a solid half-New York / Half-Virginia production. Lots of impressive maneuvers, including a wild transfer trick on the Lincoln Center Movado wallride, Leo Heinert 5050ing through the knobs in the Union Square rail, and a thoroughly great ender part from Clement Oladipo.

Whatever happened to the shifty flip?

Can skateboarding be portrayed in the non-skate media as anything more, still, than a strange unknowable mystery?”

Credit to Mostly Skateboarding for shining a light back on this J.J. Rousseau Puzzle Video mag part from 2002. Dude always flew a bit under the radar between J.B’s peak and Lucas’ little kid phase. That part was way ahead of its time. And nothing quite says early-2000s Euro video like a bangers section that degenerates into drum and bass ;)

Ludlow Street and some familiar faces, circa 1995.

“What’s the magic way into a skater boy’s heart?” “It’s so simple.”

Notable IG Developments: Aaron Herrington Static 4 extras, Bill and Supreme got something new on the way, our Euro friends did some cool tricks, and our French Canadian friends found their hero in the produce section of a Safeway.

A few quick montages:Cashmere,” “Punch Reel,” Mira Conyo iPhone outtakes.

Word is that the balls were deflated for this one:

A Most Violent Year, IRL though

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: This guy getting snubbed for a Western Conference all-star slot is another reason why the NBA should abolish conferences.

It might’ve snowed last night, but at least this isn’t your apartment.
