Our new capsule with Nike SB releases on Thursday, October 13 in skate shops worldwide. It includes a special, #lowkey colorway of the Bruin Hyperfeel, a heavyweight longsleeve pocket tee, and a Lamborghini of a wool coach jacket that exudes grown and sexy confidence. Thanks Ripped Laces for the love

Skateboarding in 2016 is a strange place, and this early 2000s nostalgia is really hitting critical mass man. Whatever incarnation of Osiris still exists re-added Tyrone Olson and Peter Smolik to their team, a year after Smolik aired out the company for denying him a snow camo Navigator and pushing Slimer-colored footwear. “The Storm already passed homie, let’s get the hurricane on and the tornado.” I don’t know dude.

Jesse Alba put together an eight-minute montage that has some cool Max footage.

Got a good laugh out of the 5050 on the table attempt at Wall Street Gap. The new edition of Lurk NYC’s “New York Times” outtake reel is now live.

The Bunt’s new one is with Eggs mayor, Brian Delaney.

Mitch Swongo and Associates” is the new one from the Western Mass boys, sure to get you feeling romantic about skating a high curb in a suburban bank parking lot. Includes Ben Bartle footage

They saved Black Blocks. Shout out Atlanta, fuck John Street and Mike Nutter.

On that note, this video is legitimately a bit heartbreaking to watch at points. Chris Mulhern put together a recent montage of Philly skating, which includes footage of people skating the rubble left behind during the Love Park demolition.

Memory Screened did an incredible remix vid of varial flip god, Tim O’Connor. (Leaving him off our 2013 varial flip study is one of the greatest oversights in QS history.)

“Danny Brady got NO swag. He’s also the team manager, so I’m probably gonna get kicked off for saying that.” Jenkem interviewed the perpetually viral Jamal Smith.

Here’s a chill “Summer Trip to New York” vid from Brixton’s BMT squad.

Kingpin has some photos of that Spanish plaza from last week, in addition to a full #listicle of the best skatepark in Europe that’s good for killing five minutes.

Yesterday, we were talking about how much American currency it would take for us to attempt a caveman boardslide on the rail that goes down from the middle stage at House of Vans. This guy crooked grinded it.

Is it weird this is my fav Gucci verse since he got out? It’s ~playful~ n ~silly~. Also, this came on shuffle the other day and its still sick. “No sneakers, I’m wearing creatures.”

Quote of the Week:

kebabs-on-hooker-lane

This part is way less ledge dance-y than I remember it. It’s more bump-to-cans and bump-to-fences than anything, and surprisingly #current in that regard. The song is still the worst rap song in a skate video ever unless someone skated to Wale.

An Inconvenient Truth

the storm

It is time that we, as free-thinking adults, own up to an inconvenient truth: The Storm is history’s greatest work of nonfiction. It might not be a sexy or popular opinion, but our most exalted skateboard heroes continue to steal from this much-maligned VHS tape for inspiration while no one is looking.

Dave Mayhew pre-dated the impossible’s modern redevelopment by a decade.

Chris Dobstaff pre-dated Fully Flared standardizing confusing tech tricks by eight.

Josh Kasper pre-dated Alex Olson inevitably doing an ollie over a DJ for a V Man fall fashion week spread by fifteen!

Anyone with half-a-brain knows there are some suppressed team meeting notes that considered the idea of a Plan B paintball trip to film male bonding filler clips for True.

And now, the Gonz — the Gonz! — is paying homage to the one and only Tyrone Olson in a new Four-Star clip without giving proper credit to the man himself.

Enough is enough. Why is it cool for the Gonz to do it, while the bro Tyrone continues to be ostracized from the conversation? Why should Mark bask in all the Tumblr reblog glory, while we sit there pretending like he didn’t watch The Storm late at night when everyone was asleep, and got inspired to bring a jump ramp to the rail?

And don’t say “Cuz he’s the Gonz.” Nah man, the Gonz is a Storm fan on the low, just like me and you ;)

Osiris shoes are boss, everybody.
