As if anyone needed more convincing of how good this kid is, Joeface put together an Antonio Durao “best of” clip with all the footage from his rookie of the year season. This includes clips from the Waters & Army intro part, the Transworld video check out, and the All City Showdown footage, which has yet to surface online.

Going to leave it at that. Young Damien Lillard.

Contributing filmers: James Buchmann, Richard Quintero, Evan Walsh, Jason Kinzel and Ricki Twohill. Edit: Joeface.

New Tony Durao Transworld Part

Here’s another bullet point to the Ian Reid theory regarding the greater metropolitan area origins of the best New York skaters. Though dubbed as a “Video Check Out,” the 2013 Rookie of the Year’s new part is over two minutes long and a solid follow up to the Waters and Army intro from the summer. Some of this footage seems like it was also in the All City Showdown DVD (more on that soon), but maybe not. Hard to really tell with the amount of footage kids put out these days.

How long until this dude is in an actual Transworld video? Two years? One?

Filmed by Joeface. Someone rip this to YouTube to circumvent the inferior Transworld player and post the link in the comments. We unfortunately can’t do it due to the risk of them reporting it and having account limitations put in place. YouTube below :)

P.S. If you want some extra Tony footage, he has the last half minute in this Long Island montage. Spotted via Recordings of Boardings.

Merry Christmas

With each passing year, it gets tougher to not acknowledge that Gucci Mane has three Christmas songs on the low, especially after straining cheesy Christmas music for the past nine clips. (Yeah, this is somehow the ninth one.) But even if the #musicsupervision department is backlogged due to not having utilized “Used 2” and “Paranoid” yet, maybe one clip a year that isn’t partial to drum machines is okay…

This somehow ended up being the most daylight-heavy Christmas clip of the nine, due to November and December being unseasonably brick. To make up for it, there was one miracle day when we didn’t get kicked out of World Trade, as evidenced by maybe a fifth of this clip being filmed there. Win some, lose some. Merry Christmas.

Features Brendan Carroll, Keith Denley, Lurker Lou, Tyler Tufty, Zered Bassett, Dave Caddo, Sweet Waste, Elijah Cole, Tony Durao, Calen Knauf, Josh Velez, Andre Page, Alexander Mosley and Connor Champion.

Thanks to Joe Cups, Andre Page and Rob Harris for contributing footage.

Waters & Army Introduces Tony Durao

Below is an introductory part for Tony Durao, a name you’ll be hearing a lot in the future, especially when having the “best up and coming east coast skaters” conversation. Though some already heard about him due to a notable trick down the Flushing six — not unlike how Ishod was kinda known as the “switch flip down Love kid” before there was any real footage of him — the Waters & Army crew put together this intro part to get all his new footage out there. He’s pretty good at skateboarding.

#SKATEEVERYFEWDAYS

Very underrated hip-hop white guy icon.

Check out this clip of Tony Durao, undoubtedly one of the most talented young skaters out east right now, skating the Nike Go Skate Day barge from last weekend. Tony’s new web part will go live on QS next Monday, July 8. It’s insane.

Not as exciting (unlike the kids, we can only skate every few days, hence the #skateverydamnday hashtag’s appropriation for the socialite 21-and-over crowd), but here’s the forty seconds of footage we were able to procure in a few hours of skating on the barge. Mainly posting this because it includes Corey Rubin sightings and those are hard to come by outside of John Wilson-produced videos. There are rumors going around about the obstacles from that park getting donated somewhere, which would be nice considering it’s better than the Tribeca Park.

Wow, Chrome Ball is shutting down :(

In brighter news, Chrome Ball has a sick new post from the weekend dedicated to the art of curb skating, though people really need to relax with assuming everything young people do now is done for the sake of “hipster 80s throwback irony.”

Never saw this when it came out in 2012 — Sneeze magazine interviews Chad Muska about his first board graphic, providing some interesting details on how the skate industry works, specifically how a board gets made and printed.

An iPhone clip from the crew behind the \m/ video. There’s also discussion about art, influences and human nature in the comments for this non-iPhone clip from the same squad.

They started uploading more parts from Mama’s Boys on YouTube. Only sixty left.

Some B-roll from the great In Crust We Trust video. (Full video here.)

Boil the Ocean discusses the value of powerslides in 2013 and contends that Adidas web clips are the new Transworld videos.

Speaking of Adidas web clips, with their latest Madrid venture, Rodrigo TX joins some lofty company in the running for best fakie flip ever done, likely somewhere between Kalis at Newport (the undebatable #1 on this list) and Jerry Hsu at Three Up Three Down (the less-fashionable SF one.) Fakie flips are a big topic around here.

“Stop it, we give McDonalds hundreds every day.”

Someone made this.
