You know who’s kinda good at skateboarding? Lucas Puig. The illustrious Manolo mixtape series came through with a five-minute French Mariano tribute, accompanied by a left-field Big L remix. Even though we consistently state that French Mariano is superior to French Montana, a “Shot Caller” remix wouldn’t have been inappropriate.
Apparently, people still skate spots that aren’t the new L.E.S. Park. Some bro cam footage from the BQE spot in Williamsburg.
With his third part this year (Note: It’s July), Mark Suciu is perhaps the first skateboarder to approach Wayne in 2006-2007 / Gucci in 2008-2009 levels of productivity and output. This one is filmed entirely at night and in downtown San Jose. We’ll happily curate an all-Midtown Manhattan edition in exchange for 15% of Habitat’s stock in the seemingly unshakeable brown pants industry.
Bad News! Don’t bother going up to 59th Street to skate any low ledges this summer. The entire monument has been fenced off.
More bad (maybe outdated) news! The eight-stair square rail at CBS got knobbed.
“Do you think it’s hard to get the rights for Biggie?” That seems to have been the case. Here’s Dennis Busenitz’s Roll Forever part remixed to the second or third best song off Ready to Die. Bumass WMG eased up, and finally liberated the audio. From the 2007 Real Remix Project DVD. Thank the Skate.ly library for the upload.
Bronze / Flipmode’s 56k video: “Out later this week…maybe?”
We’re going to start a petition for a guest edit slot in the new Girl/Chocolate video. There’s a sneaking suspicion around the QS office that Ty Evans will forget to edit something to Future.
