The First Great Skate Video of the 2020s — Bronze’s ‘Hardware For The Masses’

They say history goes in cycles. They say those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it. Just the other day, someone on here was talking about how the more things change, the more they stay the same. Word is that the new Zero video feels like a tepid rehash of an old Zero video, but thanks to Peter Sidlauskas, we won’t have to watch the new Zero video.

‘3three3’ — An Addendum to 917 Video #2

It’s no stretch to say that the second 917 video was a bit more, um, serious than their first outing. As an unofficial antidote to the fact that there was no Aidan part to start the mood light and no Na-kel rapping over Alex Olson footage this time around, Sean Dahlberg put together this eight-minute montage of outtakes from 917 #2. (We got more Genny footy the second time around though, so it’s win-win.)

Blast Off

…aannddd we’re back.

The world isn’t off to the best start in 2020, so you’d be well advised to watch this uplifting video about two Afghan girls who moved to Berlin from a refugee camp, and completely fell in love with skateboarding there. Lovingly put together by our friends at Place.

When’s FedEx dropping their video?

“Back then it was all a blur.” Yo these Bobshirt interviews are all so special. The latest installment is with Rodney Torres and is loaded with nineties New York nostalgia and stories, e.g it pretty much mentions three decades worth of skate shops in the city, and harks back to a time when New York coverage was limited to a montage here and there every couple years in a bigger video. (Also #lol on this YouTube comment.)

The youth has good tre flips. “Practice” is a very rad homie video by Cesar Fuentes featuring a bunch of up and coming skaters from The Bronx.

YouWillSoon (!!!) chopped up a remix of all Andrew Reynolds’ 2019 Instagram footage.

Foreva Eva

Throughout 2019, Alexis Lacroix‘s drawn out “Oh yeah!” elevated itself into a mantra of spiritual skateboard proportions. We oh yeah’d during our successes to amplify the good feelings. We oh yeah’d during troubled times, to remind ourselves that no misstep was large enough to derail our greater journey. And sometimes, we oh yeah’d when there was nothing else to say — it was a placeholder for any and all emotion. At the same time, Alexis’ skateboarding, most notably via Dime’s Knowing Mixtape Volume 2, was everything and nothing you had seen before. It made you cheer, it made you confused, it frightened you, it made you think, and it made you laugh — sometimes in the span of the same six seconds. With Rita on his shoulder, it also reminded us that our furry, four-legged friends are skaters too. Thank you for the inspiration Alexis Lacroix, the 2019 Q.S.S.O.T.Y.

We will be out of the office until January 6, making this the last QS update of the decade! Webstore purchases will ship as ordered. Everyone enjoy the rest of your break, take care of yourself, and thanks for all the support this year, decade, etc. ♥

#QSTOP10 — December 27, 2019

One of those weeks where 18 whiteboard suggestions had to be narrowed down to 10, but with a clear #1.

In case you’ve been tuned out of everything besides that Adidas video: the new one from Anti-Hero has a ton of Austin Kanfoush footage + Pekka Løvås’ new one is a real pleasure if you’re in the market for a non-obvious European scene. (That Vicious Pink song has been #trending this year …feel like it popped up on some mix pretty recently too.)
