The 2020 Quartersnacks Readers Poll

We had so much fun doing the readers poll for the best video parts and best full-lengths of the 2010s last year that we are bringing it back.

The goal here is to crowdsource a canon of the past twelve eleven months from people who probably think way too much about skateboarding ;) There’s so much #content out there that “I barely remember what came out this year” seems to be a recurring theme in conversations with friends, so figured this would be a good way to highlight what left the firmest imprint on people’s memories.

Voting closes at noon on Friday, December 4. After that, we’ll tally the results and present them later in the month.

P.S. We only ask for your name and e-mail to weed out spam. We don’t sell your info or auto-subscribe you to our mailing list or anything like that.

(And before anyone asks: yes, Reverb counts as a 2020 video.)

Voting has closed.

  1. Elijah, Alright OK
    Aidan, Dancing on Thin Ice
    Ave, Dancing on Thin Ice
    Gilbert, Alright OK
    Alexis, Seize the Seconds
    Honorable mention: Rune Glifberg, Phunk 45.

  2. The new Cons, new Vans, Formers Cheap Perfume, Reverb all great and Untitled by Michael Nicholas is a sleeper. Plus any of the multiple Mason or Louie parts should be #1

  3. Kitsch is the best video but don’t forget that came out in 2019.
    Sleeper hit of 2020 is Romain Batard’s Giddy 11

  4. Don’t forget about Untitled by Micheal Nicholas. Best video this year without a doubt

  5. Untitled by Michael Nicholas and Potluck by Diego Donival are by far the two best vids of the year. Throw in Giddy #11 too.

  6. I feel like there is going to be a sudden change in responses after people watch Pedro’s part in the Deathwish Video

  7. Speaking of thinking way too much about skateboarding: I’m a little confused about the two categories (“full-length video” and “video part”) because the framework and formula for skate videos is changing. What constitutes a full-length video these days? Is FA’s Dancing on Thin Ice a FULL-length video? It’s barely 15 minutes long. Or, what, for example, would you consider Tom Knox’s ‘part’ for Atlantic Drift? What about Naquan Rolling’s great edits? I just feel like the only people still making traditional videos and parts are the Huckers™.

  8. Pretty sure most people think of Dancing on Thin Ice as a full-length. It has three separate parts, and there are a lot of classically thought-of skate videos that pretty much only have three parts.

    And pretty sure most people think of Tom’s section as a part, the same way Verso was a part.

  9. Some nice lad on the Slap board thread about this put this list together to show that there is way more stuff this year than ten Mason parts, hopefully they don’t mind me sharing. (It was Warm Up Zone whose work is often linked here.)
