Just as there’s a Summer Trip to New York season, there’s an equally coverage-heavy Winter Escape From New York season. Despite Puerto Rico potentially surpassing Miami as the east coast’s premier winter getaway these past few years, the home of Khaled Mohamed Khaled (also known as DJ Khaled) still maintains an inescapable draw, i.e. are you *in* Miami or are you *still in* Miami?

The latest from Alltimers features early 2016 MVP frontrunner and Space Heater closer, Andrew Wilson, along with honorary 2004 Q.S.S.O.T.Y. Torey Goodall (QS nor its un-coveted Skater of the Year distinction existed in 2004, hence the “honorary”), and Squad Massage now Duluth alumni Ben Blundell, Dustin Henry, and Charles Rivard. Gotta hand it to any video that ends with a switch noseslide, yaknow?

All those years of covering high fashion on QS have finally paid off! We did a small run of #colorful items that would match Young Dro’s automobile paint jobs for Dover Street Market. Available instore and online via the New York location now. Available via Ginza and London later this week. Regular webstore leftovers are now on sale btw.

Drew Connors’ Bailar vid is the first great local project of the year. Street-heavy Shredmaster Keith part, tons of seldom-chartered spots all around the city, and a good deal of WTFs in the ender section. Fuel for the upcoming week of fifty-degree days.

Nearly a decade-and-a-half later, we learn that Ali really did ollie the 25 before Jaws.

Since the premiere of this past All City Showdown, some of the crews have been putting extended edits online: 1 – “Last Place” where nobody leaves #TheLower via Matthew Velez (the mind behind last year’s thoroughly awesome and underrated Sable video.) 2 — “Director’s Cut” via Westchester’s PFP squad.

Half cab kickflip backside 5050 :)

Olson, Cyrus, Loose Trucks, and newest Call Me 917 addition, Nik Stain, at the Nike SB Garage in Brooklyn. Here’s a *mandatory link* to Nik Stain’s Bruns part also.

Dude y r beautiful women objectifying our #rebellious #youth #culture just so they could look all cute on the way to the gym or whatever man. Jk ;)

Genesis in L.A. and Jason Byoun in the snow.

Enjoyed this hour-and-a-half interview with Beagle Oneism. Tons of insight on the inception of Baker, what being a SoCal-based skate filmer is actually like, etc.

If $1K is too much to spend on the complete Big Brother collection, Jenkem is reporting that the mag is releasing a coffee table book this spring that compiles its best / worst moments. Also wow @ Carnie’s Boob book for $250 on Amazon.

Dont hear too much about skating in Macau A.K.A. Hong Kong’s Vegas. Rad lil’ edit.

Now sure what the bigger facepalm is… Nas making a “March Madness” remix, or Meek Mill dropping a Drake diss on January Thirtieth Two Thousand and Sixteen.

“I love when Torey comes to town, it’s like a holiday. Everyone takes off work.”

“Oh, 2 Beerz is in town? I need a new roll of film.”

“Me and Torey back to work but we still smell like a vacation.”

There aren’t too many people whose presence in a particular city commands a holiday amongst an entire friend group. Happy 30th Torey. We love you. Below is a Shrimp C presentation for our second Quartersnacks Legends Series installment.

Note: This is a *censored* four-minute version of “30 & Boomin.'” Hit up Shrimp C for the six-minute extended and uncensored director’s cut (NSFW.)

Told you that trash was #trending.

“Would the take-aways from your story be: find your passion, go to school if it interests you, travel, meet new people, get out of your comfort zone, don’t be scared to move somewhere new, be good to people, and work really hard?”
“I’d say focus on the first and the last two things you just mentioned and everything else will fall into place.” Skateboard Story has an interview with Torey Goodall, one of the five or seven greatest living skateboarders, about turning #good #drunk times into a career at a fashion-forward British skateboard enterprise.

New vid from Jesse Alba and that kid who doesn’t fuck with Trukfit.

This dude switch 5050ed the Hooters rail in the new Waylon Bone edit. Sorta surprised that spot hasn’t been getting more burn in the “Summer Trip to New York” footage cycle considering the actual Hooters has been out of commission for a minute.

Volume 12 of LurkNYC’s “New York York Times” throwaway series went live this past weekend. Some people really really hate skateboarding yaknow?

We’re still adamantly anti-good skateboarders at Three Up Three Down but still sorta excited to see what Lucas came back with. Him and Hjalte get the pass.

Carroll’s quick Questionable, Virtual Reality, Goldfish and Finally run is the skate version of Nayvadius’ Monster, Beastmode, 56 Nights and DS2 run.

Jönnek” is the new one from the finest former Soviet bloc country-based skate crew working today. They’re basically the MPC™ of eastern Europe.

Hey he got a new phone.

…and that Gramercy T.F. is the new hot spot for phone edits.

Free Skate Mag caught up with Luy Pa Sin, an icon of mid-2000s European ledge skating and varial flips. Includes a retrospective edit too :)

Officially (?) the first skate clip to utilize WATTBA #musicsupervision.

This week marks one year since the release of Tha Tour, which is still on whole-way-through-at-least-3x-a-week-status over at the QS office. Birdman can go to hell for ruining what was momentarily the greatest thing to happen to rap groups since who even knows? Since We Got It For Cheap 2 dropped? Guys pls work out your differences and bring back “the best duo since Outkast“© thx.

When I die, bury me inside the Gucci store…but like actually.

It’s that time of year again. This one is a little different because it includes a quick Euro interlude from our time in Paris and Copenhagen this summer. Thanks to everyone who looked out while we were out there: Rich Homie Juan, Frey Dogg, Hjalte (I lost your line for some unknown reason, sorry, I’m an idiot), etc. Enjoy your long weekend and start planning those outfits for NYFW14!

Features Alexander Mosley, Connor Champion, Kadeem Walters, Ty Lyons, Tyler Tufty, Josh Velez, Michael Gigliotti, Matthew Perez, Jon Diaz, Haffa, Jack Sabback, Antonio Durao, Pryce Holmes, Torey Goodall, Danny Brady, Frey Dogg, Pad Dowd, Andre Page, Emilio Cuilan, Rich Homie Juan, Rory Milanes, Kevin Tierney, Uptown Eddie, Chris Haslam’s ex-girlfriend.

We *would* include an alternate YouTube link, but apparently they started disabling audio on account of music rights again? Sick! Glad you record labels are keeping your business models current!

Oh, and in the interest of full disclosure, this entire clip would be edited to “You the World” if only it had come out a week before. Unfortunately, it came out on Wednesday, and the clip was already halfway done at that point :(
