Damn, the dude on the New Yorker cover can barely even ollie.
Free Skate Mag has another Lucas Puig Instagram remix, edited to that Young Thug song that everyone really tried to make happen #in #da #club at the start of the summer but already forgot about. Works great for the vid though.
The “Summer Trip to New York” edits are finally starting to roll in! As is the DS2 music supervision! Thought it was a drought! D.C’s Palace 5ive rolled up to New York for a bit and came back with a five-minute VX montage.
Someone made a new Cyrus Bennett remix with a bunch of his HD video blog footage.
Kareem Campbell still got it.
Quick two-minute montage with a bunch of Bronze affiliates and a three-minute montage with a bunch of dudes from the Bronx.
Amazing that a lot of these European D.I.Y. spots started with a single quarterpipe. Or that, like, they’ve been allowed to exist for as long as they have.
Fakie Hill Bomb has a cool interview with Iain Borden, one of the most vocal pro-skateboarding architecture academics, about the future of integrating skating into modern public spaces (e.g. hopefully this.)
Making It Happen is a new all-New York vid coming out later this year. Teaser here.
The Times put together a “where are they now?” feature for that movie that skaters really like on the occasion of its 20-year-anniversary.
