Late start to the week bc of the holidays :)

Attn: Hot new trendy country Canada — Blue Tile and Antisocial have new QS gear in.

The I-Beam is the hottest T.F. obstacle since the Tombstone.

Like every facet of American life, skateboarding was hit hard by the 2008 recession. Lurker Lou has an oddly insightful glimpse into the industry of the pre-recession, pre-iPhone era by giving a 2007 Thrasher a last look. “Respect the Machnau.”

Here’s post-Love Park life in Philadelphia, with a Grandpa cameo in Cell Jawn #26.

Yo for like a casual, pre-premiere session around the Lower East Side and Chinatown, this clip of the Volcom team before the Holy Stokes screening has some jams in it. Nobody’s ollied those two double bump-to-bars on Madison before, right?

Fakiehillbomb went skating with QS-favorites, the Hungarian Rios Crew in Budapest for two weeks, and came back with this bit of low-def photojournalism.

I mean, for a varial flip on a l*ngb**rd, it’s perfect.

What you know about skateboarding in Nicaragua bro?

The Green Zine interviewed John Shanahan about #fits and the resurgence of shove-it reverts, and Venture remixed a good bit of his LurkNYC footage.

Even if you skate zero transition, there are certain skate landmarks you gotta pay a visit to just because (think Burnside, the Christiana bowl, etc.) The La Perla pool in San Juan, Puerto Rico is on that list. Monster Children did a quick story on the spot’s history, and how it slowly revitalized one of the slummiest parts of San Juan.

As per the note re: everyone still wanting to see Todd Jordan skate in Lou’s segment, here’s his gem of a “Wheels of Fortune” section, checking off every box of late-90s/early-2000s New York skate nostalgia:

The Canal Wheels section from Transplants is now online.

Cafe Creme has an interview with multiple People’s SOTY winner, Dennis Busenitz.

Dane Vaughn skates some New York rooftops.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Gotta be Steph’s 4-on-1 off glass lay-up to close out the first half last night? What’s everyone thinking, Warriors in six? Durant leaves?

Quote of the Week
Inquisitive Gentleman: “Have you ever seen a shark out in the water?”
Dave Dowd: “I don’t believe in sharks.”

Who da neighbors?

Last week was slow, but things should get rolling again these next few days. The Knicks are in the playoffs! All we need now is this Heat match-up and it’s gonna get wild.

Real’s Since Day One, which is probably the most anticipated video since Stay Gold, will be premiering in non-San Francisco regions throughout the coming week (New York & New Jersey premiere info here.) A handful of websites have already began putting together content based around the video. Skate Daily has a feature up that contains interviews with Jim Thiebaud, Dan Wolfe, and Davis Torgerson. The Chrome Ball Incident will also be spending the week with Real-centric content, with a Torgerson interview to kick the week off. Does anyone know if the video is going to be on sale April the 11th, or only premiering? Shops are allowed to sell the video as of April 11th as well.

Taji posted up a mini interview with Eli Reed over at the Converse blog.

The scaffolding is off the Terminator Rail on First Avenue, in case you were trying to get buck. Wear the Terminator shades if you do, those are what the rail is actually named after.

Again, this isn’t exactly a media outlet known for regurgitating nonsense from The Berrics, but Luis Tolentino is killing it out there. Probably the second best Berrics segment ever, after the Mike V one.

Crailtap posted up some outtakes from The Chocolate Tour (some of which appeared in random 411 issues throughout the years.) Carroll, Gino, etc. You should watch it if you already haven’t.

While Ziegfeld might not be the best spot for back tails anymore, it’s still a big location for paparazzi photos.

A (kinda old at this point) Todd Jordan interview discussing the earlier Zoo York days, skating with Harold Hunter, filming for Mixtape 1 & 2, and a variety of other topics.

The new issue of Skate Jawn is now online.

Quote of the Week:Y’all gotta put them cameras away and get out of here. I own a few of these [buildings]…I paid Trump for a few of these, and y’all can’t be doing that here.” — A gentleman kicking us out from a planter rail on a 138th Street sidewalk who pulled up playing “Dueces” on full volume with a baby in the backseat.

A Quarter Snacks Christmas

December 25th, 2008 | 1:16 am | Video & Remixes | 41 Comments

122508.jpg

This year, the Christmas clip features Leo Gutman, Keith Denley, Jake Johnson, Brendan Granstrand, Billy Rohan, DJ Roctakon, Thando Beschta, Miles Marquez, Matthew Mooney, Kevin Tierney, Ty Lyons, Pryce Holmes, Charles Lamb, Benjamin Nazario, Danny Weiss (!), Todd Jordan, Taji Ameen, Ryan Hickey and Switch Michael Strobert Sr. Contributed footage by Brengar, Justin White and Jeremy Scott Cohan.

Unfortunatley, we were unable to top the almost nine-minute mark of last year’s clip, largely due to weather related reasons, i.e. the fact that it snowed in December for the first time in about five years (or maybe I’m exagerrating). We still managed to pull of one last emergency session last night in upper-twenty degrees. I think there are less frontside shove-its in this clip than there were in last year’s. Shame.

Have a happy and safe Christmas.

New York Checkouts

December 12th, 2006 | 9:18 pm | Time Capsule | No Comments

Here’s a few Checkouts from 1999-2000 from New Yorkers. Some of them are scanned crooked. No, I’m not re-scanning them.
