ICYMI: A Flushing grate N.B.D. that’s been speculated for years on end, a Lego piece between the two rails at the Williamsburg Bridge monument, and a wild one at Grant’s Tomb in Frankie Spears’ all-New York outing of X-Games Real Street.
A bit of an, um, mid-week content sabbatical going on at the QS office. Be back on it soon, promise ;)
Grace, some Euros, and a lil’ bit of “Real Street,” though didn’t want to go overboard there. Sure, there are “crazier” tricks than Alexis’ switch front nose, but that’s the prettiest trick in the batch. Also, Frankie’s Flushing N.B.D. goes without saying — people have been talking about if that’s possible for years.
This rules: Jenkem and Quell Skateboarding have an article that chronicles the history of Rookie Skateboards, the very ahead-of-its-time New York brand that began in the 1990s.
Realtime reaction to #2^. Happy July ♥
The Joey O’Brien part is one of those “full experience” things that it’s tough to just choose a single clip from. Audibly said “what the fuck” at the ender even the second time viewing, too.
Snack’s Mexico edit is the best travel edit in a minute.
Long overdue for including some of Casper Brooker’s recent Southbank choreography on here. If you’re just joining, Welcome Leeds could bring you up to speed.
It’s sold out everywhere, but just another nod to how great the Brandon Turner guest board for Carpet Company is. 10/10 to everyone involved.
Thanks to everybody who grabbed something from the webstore last week ♥ Should be caught up on shipping in the next few days. Available at shops worldwide now. If you came looking for XLs after the relaunch and it was coming up sold out, check back now. Restocked a bunch of styles in XL. (Will do 2XL on the next release for everyone who has been asking, yes.)
Last week, the New York City Public Design Commission voted unanimously to remove and relocate the Roosevelt statue in front of the Museum of Natural History. There are renderings available that propose fully flattening the chains + pedestal section of the
plaza skate spot, but there has been no formal decision on the design once the statue is gone — with people saying they should rethink the pedestal space (A.K.A. the #perfectlearningheight ledge that everyone loves) rather than just leveling where it once stood.
