#QSTOP10 — December 2, 2022

Euro-heavy week on the countdown, with a lot of the honors going to Fritte Söderström’s incredible “Jante – 11:00” video, which is a de facto Sour Solution 3.5 of sorts + a hall of fame back tail. The speed he picks up once locked in almost betrays how quick the throwdown was. (Supreme vid obvs got deferred until next week.) Have a good one.

Supreme’s ‘Play Dead’ Video Is Now Live

Writing in 2019, when “cherry” snagged the top spot in QS Readers Poll results for best videos of the 2010s (voting for this year’s opens soon!), Boil the Ocean remarked “that it is easy to forget the gamble that “cherry” represented roughly one eternity ago.” The gamble clearly worked, and “BLESSED” felt like a result of the creative blank check a film studio gives out when someone’s first feature breaks expectations.

The 2022 Quartersnacks Year in Review: 25-16

In many ways, 2022 was a benchmark year where so many definitive things turned ten. Everything from Labor to Tinder to Bronze to Jenkem to Bill’s first-ever edit with Tyshawn for Supreme have been with us for a decade now.

Things keep changing, time keeps flying, and we’re back to keep a lil’ inventory of it all.

Tried To Tell Them It Was Boot Season

Listen to the soothing sounds of Nick Boserio’s voice — like light rain on a windowpane or cascading waves — for over an hour on the latest episode of The Bunt. Bar-none one of the best people you could have on a skate trip ❤️

This is really sick of The LA Times to do: The Oral History of the Hollywood High 16, with stories from many of the names most closely associated with the spot. (#lol at the visible QS sticker on the headline photo.) Can’t wait for The New York Times to do the oral history of the Courthouse Drop.

Our buddy Max Hull uploaded “I’M HERE,” his short submitted to the New York Bicycle Film Festival, onto his YouTube. Not skate-related obvs, but a very simple yet beautiful story :) “We outside, not inside.”

#QSTOP10 — November 25, 2022

This might’ve been the most stacked week to stuff one of these into ten selections ever — the suggestion board was up to 31 inclusions, with ten from Deep Fried’s Pescado and ten from the new Element video (shout out Element 2022) alone. (It was so fuckin’ busy out there that it was almost like we forgot Atlantic Drift returned last week!)

And no matter where you stood on the original issue, it’s pretty tough to deny that Tyshawn going back to re-do the switch ollie from another angle — just to post it online and end the debate — is a beautiful holiday movie 🎄 Love a trick that has multiple narrative arcs, yaknow?
