Glue & Friends — ‘wick & spit’ Is The Latest From Glue Skateboards

This one premiered over the weekend, but only catching it now.

Stephen Ostrowski’s projects always feel special, and the latest is obviously no exception — though it’s hard not to wish that Stephen had a bit more time in front of the lens 😔

“wick & spit” is a Glue Skateboards + extended family video, featuring an intro part from Leo Baker (crazy that Carroll Gardens schoolyard truly popped off as soon as the Carroll manny pad met its demise), and a heavy closer from Donovan Wildfong, which includes the elusive *triple replay* of a clip from the same angle. In between, you’ll find guest clips from QS favorites like Cooper Winterson, Akobi Williams, Briana Delaney and Evan Wasser.

Destroyed skater jeans. Pre-order now. $1,290. And here we were fretting about having raised the price of QS tees by $2 ☺️

“Forced into the wilderness for years first by cords, then by Dickies, Carharts and assorted chinos, jeans now are the stuff of kingdom-making and eternal glory.” And on that very same note, Boil the Oceans offers some analysis on how jeans have climbed to become the north star of the skateboard industry.

Leo Heinert + crew blitzed Black Hubba and threw a big contest on it a week ago. Flipping into a crook on that thing is nuts.

#QSTOP10 — April 29, 2022

Was honestly tempted to put Tenzin’s nollie big heel at Tompkins at #1 this week just to fuck with all the people who absolutely lost it in the YouTube + IG comments last year over Jack O’Grady’s cover 5050 getting #2.

But yeah. The most #1 of #1’s. If you ask a room full of skaters to list three tricks that they would’ve previously never have thought of as possible, it’s on there for a lot of them.

A Broth Follow-Up — Jordan Trahan’s ACE Part

There’s no part like a hometown part (or, let’s say home state part), and Jordan’s latest is a de facto sequel to his section in Broth, the New Orleans full-length that dropped late 2020.

Released by Ace (“ride these trucks or you’ll fucking die“) and under the direction of Broth videographer Charles Johnson, New Orleans skating always feels wholly of its own world — making the most of their scene, in a place truly unlike anywhere else in America. Had a chance to visit that Crescent Park pier they all skate over the holidays, and that wood ground demands an level of precision that you can only learn by having it be your local.

Streetsweepers

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.

9 hugs, 41 blunts, and 54 slams — 4Ply Mag went ahead and crunched the numbers on Shake Junt’s new video, Shrimp Blunt.

A half hour of Tyshawn loosies!
