Proper Shit Out

Keeping along with last week’s 76ers theme…

Been a slow start to the year out there. Pretty excited for this heatwave though.

Steve Mastorelli (the guy who made The Meadowlands last year) has a sick new edit up, which screened before the video at the NJ Skateshop Stop Fakin’ 3 premiere. Features a bunch of familiar north Jersey faces and spots.

One of the standout ex-pat / visitor in New York vids in recent memory — “Dice of Life: Twenty Eighteen.” Huge array of spots (shout out to everyone venturing out to the still-good spots that weathered locals otherwise gave up on), really sick skating (the line at the Escape From New York cathedral on Amsterdam is fucked + the varial heel at Southbridge Towers is sick too), and one of the best No Limit songs to start it off, though they only used the worst verse on it :)

Coda has new montage for 2018, with some wild moves, especially in the first part, which seemed like it was about to be filmed exclusively under the J train.

Kinda an interview with Aidan Mackey + photos from the roof of the former QS office.

R.B. Umali mashed up a bunch of his old footage to create a “15 Years of New York skateboarding” montage that covers 1995 to 2010, with the first ever (?) regular-motion footage of the best kickflip ever done.

#comebackwatch2018: 1) Never been the biggest fan, but the DC Lynx is *officially* coming back into their line. 2) Gino Iannucci’s onetime Long Island Skateshop, Poet’s, is being relaunched as a standalone brand. 3) The sneaker nerds were already up on this, but Nike’s Grandstand 2, which you might remember Reese Forbes wearing in his first-ever SB ad, is set to re-release sometime soon. (It’s not an SB model though.)

“I never thought I’d send DVDs to Iraq.” Solo has an an interview with Nick from The Palomino, the internet’s best skate shop ♥ You can find QS on there too obvs ;)

An ocean away and old, but new, but a #spotcheck nonetheless.

Ten years since Static 3 with Soy Panday and Danny Renaud.

“The backside 360 with that gentle and (sarcastically?) smug roll away off the ledge is the first trick I think of when I think of Bobby Puleo in Static II.” And on that same note…“musing on” Puleo’s part in the second Static video.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Russ being Russ ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Shout out to all the stable geniuses out there ;)

The Forgotten City has a really good new montage up right now.

Static III New York premiere info. Projected date is the weekend of the 19th of October.

Were the Board Bangers not enough? Need more reasons to hate skateboarding? Here you go: “As rap icons Pharrell Williams and Lupe Fiasco present skateboarding as an integrated part of their personality and style, and with skateboarding itself already a pop cultural phenomenon, urban fans are now incorporating the fashion and lifestyle of skateboarding, experimenting with both skateboarding as a look and active sport.Totally dude. And who in their right mind refers to Lupelle Phiasco as an “icon”? Maybe if O’Shea Jackson were still in top form we wouldn’t have all these assholes running around in lime green Bape hoodies rapping about skateboarding.

Here’s some more idiots talking about nonsense.

What’s Happenin’

Slow update week, I know. But something is brewing in the kettle right now, don’t worry. Here’s some junk that’s going on in the next few weeks.

The éS Game of Skate is on this Wednesday, July 25 at Tompkins Square. It would probably be in your best interests to show up before 1 if you’re trying to enter. Click here for the schedule for everywhere else in the world.

If you want to try to skate the banks with a million other people, the Back to the Banks event is happening on Saturday, August 11th at 1PM. Click here for the flyer. Sponsored by Volcom, 5Boro, Spitfire, Skateboarder Magazine, Red Bull and Emerica. It’s a best trick contest and a “skate jam” of sorts.

You didn’t hear this from me, but the mysterious Chapman video and Static III are being double-premiered this September at the Houston Street theatre. Miles Marquez does a pop shove it over a gap in the Chapman video, but don’t tell anybody…
