#QSTOP10 — September 30, 2022

Impossible to pick a clip from the part at number 1, just as it was impossible to pick a single clip from the part at number 2 — but like the philosopher Charles Rivard once said, “Impossible is only a skate trick.” (There are, however, no impossibles on the countdown this week.)

See everyone at the Vans block party (we have a lil’ something there…) + Alltimers premiere tomorrow. All info can be found on this flyer.)

Have a good one 🥂

The Return of the Yellow Rail

The Yellow Rail was by no means ever a famous spot. Apart from a very memorable Bobby Puleo backside nosegrind in Static II, it was more of a local stomping ground from the early-2000s for kids from the Upper West Side, Harlem and Morningside (shout out Jasonwear.) But if you ever skated it, you remembered it. Like the Bronze meme said: “If you ever skated this spot, you had an awesome childhood.”

Harvest Time

If you have the means, please donate to this GoFundMe for Tristan Mershon, Nate Grzechowiak and Josh Paynter, whose Bushwick apartment and possessions were lost to a house fire two weeks ago.

There’s no way you haven’t seen the new Bronze video yet, right?

There’s def an official Thrasher edit incoming, but Zubr ripped and combined everyone’s IG stories of Tyshawn’s Can Jam at Blue Park this past Saturday into a single video. Shout out to the legend who continues to show up to all the skate events and films with his laptop.

#QSTOP10 — September 23, 2022

Slow news week at QS on account of a multi-day, post-Glory Challenge recovery.

If we had it our way, this would be midtown lines the whole way through, every time. But there’s two this round!

Otherwise, a lot of long lines, a pinch on The Sombrero, and some obvious Dime highlights, including a rare moment of consensus between actual Sportscenter, and the QS Top 10.

Yes, Louie got deferred until next week!

Dead Mophie Society

A billboard above Popeye’s Ledge. A dream come true 🙂🙃🙂🙃🙂

Kind of knew this day was only a matter of time given how bad the cracks are getting. Community Board 3 held a meeting that laid out a plan for repaving Tompkins next summer. Though it is not a hard date just yet, it looks like the court we all skate will be closed for up to three months while the asphalt cures. Doesn’t seem like they are pulling any silly shit like they did with the turf in 2019. (But they are ending softball permits!) Shout out to the lady who pulled up to the meeting like, “How have you gone talking this long without mentioning the skaters?”

The official Thrasher recap is sure to drop mid-week like it does every time, but people on YouTube already compiled an eight-minute 2022 Dime Glory Challenge best-of.
