Monster Children has an interview with Naquan Rollings out.
Neema Joorabchi already released another video — not even a month removed from the release of “limp” in December. “Okay Then” dropped on the Transworld site just before the year timed out. Looks like the knob-job on the Crosby and Grand diamond-plate thing has already been conquered. Also, holy frontside flip at the Lily Pads.
“$tanding on Business” is a quick but heavy new edit by Denzel Moffett with a crazy back-to-back-to-back to start and some wild Pyramid Ledge maneuvers at the end.
Boil the Ocean wrapped its top ten favorite parts of the 2022 list without the big four S.O.T.Y. contenders.

Gonna drop an embed for Boil the Ocean’s favorite part of 2022 on here. Few people have been consistently writing about skateboarding on the internet as long as BTO, so any rec from out that way means a lot. Vince is also definitely one of the most prolific frontside nosesliders working today.
