Trying to be around like Boston Baked Beans…

Andre Page — Ollie at Paine Webber. Brian Kelley posted up a quick “look back” post on one of the world’s most enthusiastic skateboarders, Andre Page. We filmed a line with that bench ollie this past December in twenty-degree weather (notice the down jacket) at maybe 2 A.M., so B.K’s words about the whole night thing are on point. A small handful of people could ollie that bench…not that many are doing it when the temperature is below freezing. If you ever want to learn how to properly execute a flip trick, or how to ollie well, go to Tompkins, act real creepy, and watch Dre skate. Somehow beating him in S.K.A.T.E. (once) is still one of my finer achievements.

Perennial Quartersnacks favorite, the Black Ninja, dropped a new part. It’s all skatepark footage, and the lime laces remain, but it is still a must watch. The soundtrack takes a bit of a turn, switching between a rock version, and an ominous, slow piano loop rap song. “Nosestall, tailstall, front shove, hell naw! Rippin’ through the nosestall game like a bearclaw.”

Continuing along with those mentioned in our rap video skate part guide…watch the Darren Harper throwaway part. He switch flips the bench at Welfare Banks, and retweets Roctakon.

This isn’t real, but the kid nollie crooked a triple or quadruple kinked hubba in the new Transworld video, so it it really that far fetched?

Skateboarders are known for being a thrifty bunch, but you guys should probably stop taking those $5 Chinatown buses.

Have you heard about the great Kansas City parking block heist? It takes something like this to realize just how absurd skateboarding looks from the outside looking in. (Spotted via Skate & Annoy)

Here is an interview with Quartersnacks’ favorite Canadian skater, Torey Goodall, who is currently hiding out in Norway. Below, is a five-year-old B-roll edit from Baby Steps. He rips, skates to DJ Screw, and best of all, the edit was done by one of skateboarding’s finest auteurs, Rob Butterfield.

Quote of the Week:You know that Jadakiss line, ‘Gangsters don’t die, they get chubby, and move to Miami?’ Well, it’s ‘Hipsters don’t die, they get sober, and move to L.A.‘” — Alex Dymond
