This one is pretty good too.
The QS webstore is now live with fall merch. There likely won’t be any restocks on any of this stuff, so grab it while you can. Thanks as always for the support. Also available from these fine shops, although it might not be available at some of the European retailers until later this week or next ♥♥♥
Cops are awesome. Not skating there for a while…
Maybe L.E.S. clip of the year. (Double-set contest clips don’t count.)
Ollie onto the top, TOP circle at Seward Park is insane.
Even though the rumors have been going for years, the Love Park redesign looks like it’s becoming an increasing reality. It’s nice that they’re turning it into a grassy crack smoking campsite with a big toilet in the middle.
Remember Chad Knight? For whatever reason, decided to give his Shetler Show episode a chance. There are some interesting bits, namely having to do with the late nineties skate boom. People can call companies like Osiris “corny” in hindsight, but we’re still talking about them more than some of the “cool” stuff from when we were growing up. All the corny shit means a lot in life. Think about who’s song you’re more likely to hear at a party in 2015: 50 or Ja? Yo I miss Yung Berg.
Leo Gutman (2013 Q.S.S.O.T.Y. winner) sightings in this mostly New York iPhone clip.
Always hyped to see footage of Philly Santosuosso and New Orleans in general.
Just in time for winter: Ripped Laces on the resurgence of skating in Timberlands.
Dude, we, like, fully gave up on the Knicks after they traded picks for Bargnani and realized nothing will ever change. Being a bandwagon Warriors fan these past three years has turned out great. (Thanks for the plug.)
There’s no shortage of high praise on the Stretch and Bobbito documentary going around, but as an addendum to that, you should listen to the two-hour Juan Ep podcast with the two of them. They make a point of not spoiling anything in the film itself. Bobbito not knowing this was a Dogg Pound beat or the context of the song is the most hilariously east coast shit ever. That song was in a clip, btw ;)
QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: The entire highlights video of Magic-Thunder from Friday. I witnessed a $50 bet go down this past week on Russell Westbrook being league MVP. He’ll probably finish top three, but it doesn’t matter because he’s actually the greatest basketball player in the history of skateboarding.
