It’s wild that this thing reached a level of being skated-enough to where the city actually went out of their way to knob the ledge. This photo certainly does the spot the most justice out of all the coverage you’ve seen on it • 📸 Mike Heikkila on the photo, Thomas Dritsas on the board.
Enjoyed “Whistle” a lot — a Washington D.C. video by Eddie Gutierrez that at once feels nostalgic while firmly of the moment. A lot of unfamiliar faces to those outside the D.C. scene, though it’s hard not to wish you knew who some of them were (to the chagrin of the position that homie videos should have titles.) Skate Jawn has an interview with Eddie about the video’s creation as well.
Village Psychic has a part-by-part deep-dive of what it would take to make a sustainable skateboard.

“Skating…I kind of equate it to college. You’re just buying time. It’s a real thing, but it’s kind of not a real thing.” Our friend Jimmy Gorecki is the latest guest on The Bunt. (And yeah, that Anthony Correa flatbar trick from Mixtape is one of the most hypnotic skate tricks ever, and that shit flies by in two seconds. Had to gif that!)

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week 🏀 — Wolves v.s. Grizzlies is obvs the best series of the first round, right?
