It’s the “picture of Rihanna on vacation as a Monday Links headliner bc shit is slow” point of the summer…
“I remembered from like being a kid and being like ‘Why would I fucking count how many times this dude pushes,’ but then when I saw the Andrew Allen stats and there was like flannel stats and shit I was like, ‘Yes! Fuck dude, thats awesome. I’m not the only one counting weird shit.'” The statisticians at 4-Ply crunched the numbers on all of Frank Gerwer’s footy, and got an interview with the man as well. We need to do a Frank Five Favorite Parts…
The Village Psychic dudes got Steve Brandi to talk us through his Static IV part.
Eby Ghafarian has a new part up over on the Vague site.
Can’t recall being sent something as much as Dennis Schröder’s skate footy this week. But him ripping is old news! We tried to interview him for deep when he was on the Hawks, but their P.R. kept giving us the runaround. Def the first NBA Player who can also frontside flip a four-stair.
Cracked sidewalks, broken benches, and an ender on a microwave in Dylan Sepe’s 4 x 4 part, spotted via Skate Jawn.
The always industrious Zubr has a ten-minute Troy Gipson loosies + IG footy comp for us this week.
When we were in Prague, the locals said there were spots besides the plaza “if you drive.” Not sure how much driving these guys did, but Stepan Bares has a new Prague edit where every clip (besides the ender) is somewhere else in the city.
The hotel that got built on the block where the club from All the Streets Are Silent used to be interviewed the guy who used to throw the party there ;)
The Paris Review has a excerpt from Kyle Beachy’s book, The Most Fun Thing. (“What percentage of skateboarding, I wonder, is talking about skateboarding? Half, probably.” Actually, mathematically more than half.)
