“When did Johnny’s videos peak?”

That has been a popular topic in 2015. Pundits believe the videos were at their purest when Space Heater dropped — but then you remember that Beef Patty contained the last full-length Paul Tucci part, or that Paych had that fire Gwen Stefani song.

As we wait to see if the monster of New York City nightlife has Wenning-esque consequences on the Most Productive Crew™ (that may be an antiquated name) and their filmer, Sure is the latest one. It got rave reviews on premiere night.

Features parts from Andrew Wilson, Harry Jumonji, reigning Q.S.S.O.T.Y. Max Palmer making a strong case for potentially pulling the first ever two-peat win of the award, Paul Tucci with his highest volume of footage since the aforementioned video, Corey Rubin skating a bowl wearing a chain, John Choi from Dime and Cyrus from Polar. Guest appearances from all the familiar faces, along with a middle montage filmed at some weird sunny part of Brooklyn (?) that I have never been to.

Previously: Horny, Paych, Beef Patty, Space Heater

Help Kevin Tierney get a new knee.

Dime and Alltimers present…the first skateboard specifically designed for girls.

It may be gone by the time you read this, but the crew from Canal Wheels dropped off a new box at T.F. (Though it seems to have already switched sponsors.) Sorta wonder if a loose box stands to live a longer life at Delancey curb rather than T.F. these days. Less Parks Dept. intervention, stupid softball leagues, etc.

TWS posted a “Five Trick Fix” from Johnny Wilson’s new video, Sure. Word is that it’s going online sometime this week :)

Obviously there are three Soho clips in the new Austyn Gillette part.

Also always been my favorite part from the guy who ruined skateboarding.

SML Talk comes through with some detailed analysis of the “one down,” rather than the more popular “one up.” Unless there are photos of you running in next month’s Thrasher, A.B.Ds are an irrelevant concept in 2015. Chris Joslin or Shane O’Neill are always only a five-hour flight away. Somebody will be better than you, the guy who did the best tricks over the Flushing grate is someone you’ve probably never heard of, and nobody will ever look as cool as J.B. Gillet. Who cares if some nerd in brown pants did a better trick? Like, have fun dude ;) #sk8life

Genesis Evans’ part from Life is Goodie. Watch out for rocks and cracks.

Our friends at Chapman out in Long Island dropped a new short video, “For Play:”

This intro clip for some new company called Futur is solid. Features Santiago Sasson and Juan Saavedra, who you probably recognize from the past few Palace videos.

NY Skateboarding has some good photos of the Nike park in Greenpoint, if you have yet to go. It’s open Thursdays through Sundays from 11 A.M. to 7 P.M. until Labor Day, though I feel like someone was saying it’ll last til the end of September.

A quick two minutes from the The Bronx.

Can’t imagine this will resist the fate of the ledges facing the main street at this spot after the new sidewalk is laid down.

Yo we out to Beirut

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Lamarcus Aldridge cancelled his scheduled meeting with the Knicks, back when his destination was still a question. The Spurs will be in the Finals next year, Timmy will have one more ring than Kobe, shrug it off, and walk into the sunset created by the pause screen of his favorite video game.

Shout out Jaden.

R.I.P. Westway. Definitely had fun there a few summers ago.
