That Rail Is A Sack Factory

ICYMI: The D.O.A. dudes have a new edit and tribute video out for their friend Drew Grabowski ❤️

Nollies into flatscreen TVs, noseslides on boat boards, and a dumpster-adjacent spot that’ll inevitably send group texts scouring “where is this?!” in Neema Joorabchi’s “feast your eyes” edit featuring all the dudes from the Til It’s Gone video.

Joe Cups uploaded a reel of Alex Olson, Jason Dill and Anthony Pappalardo kicking around Manhattan back in 2004.

Jenkem uncovered a trove of unseen skate photos from New York in the 1980s.

Ryan Mettz’s ‘Mettz Quest 2’ for Skate Jawn — A New One w/ Karim, Cyrus, Max, DREWWW, Nik & Them…

Had to check into the office real quick on a weekend because last night, Ryan Mettz dropped an edit for Skate Jawn that ticks every one of the QS boxes, and tugs at all of our heartstrings.

“Mettz Quest 2” is a peek behind many of the sessions that shaped John’s Vid, Paul Coots’ HIT Video, and Limosine’s Paymaster. Includes appearances from Cyrus, Karim, Max and them, plus video evidence of the Andrew Wilson back tail behind the Home Depot in Gowanus — the trajectory / physics of which make far less sense IRL than on video, perhaps even less-so now that the building chiseled out the quick-crete job on the barrier. Had trouble explaining that trick to a car of people scoping the spot out once.

Thanks Mettz! New Skate Jawn photo issue out now.

Everyone have a fabulous weekend ❤️

#QSTOP10 — July 1, 2022

QS will resume operations on Tuesday, July 5.

O.G. 2000’s latest is probably their best one yet, which is saying a lot because they consistently make some of the funnest videos out.

Otherwise, the best part of the week on the internet was imagining what it would be like if John Taffer went around saving skateshops a la Bar Rescue with everyone on Twitter.

The Jake clip might be old? Whatever. Caught it in With All Due.

Rest in Peace Drew Grabowski.

It’s A D.C. & Baltimore Thing — Gang International’s ‘With All Due’ Video

Gang International — the D.C-based outfit responsible for 2019’s “Facades” and a lot of your favorite Bobby Worrest footage over the years — has a new one out today. Light on the Bobby clips this round, but heavy on pretty much everything else. The video weaves from Pulaski, through Baltimore’s notoriously unforgiving crust, and back to Pulaski for ender parts from Mikey Payne and Kevin Augustine (that switch flip back tail made me rethink what I already knew about his stance for a few seconds…)

‘iPhone Mixtape’ by The Star Team

When’s the last time you saw a crispy pair of I-Paths in a new skate video?

‘iPhone Mixtape’ is Kyota Umeki and the Star Team’s follow-up to last winter’s “iPod video” (another piece of 2000s technology somehow being outlived at large by the VX1000.) It is a kaleidoscopic bro cam video of the first half of 2022 via the Homies Network dudes and their extended family as they kick around every possible corner of lower Manhattan — with Tompkins and the recently re-instated Green Man statue as the anchor-points.
