A long bluntslide, a kinky back tail, and a Kalis-ian nollie flip off a shitty Tompkins ramp. The summer’s on its way out, queue up “East Liberty” ;)
Even the kids are like, “Holy shit, look at that switch flip.”
Grace felt nostalgic-yet-current: a 38-minute runtime for a meticulously crafted local video harks back to period when attention spans were un-Instagramized, but the generation it introduces stakes their names well into the future. It is hard to remember what the last Boston video with this many new faces was, and should the Grace boys become the Boston version of something like the Sabotage franchise a few hundred miles south, everyone would be pretty ok with that ♥

From a skate house above a chicken shop by Southbank to a GQ feature: Fashion-writer-who-actually-skates-and-can-write, Noah Johnson, profiled the minds behind Palace for a feature in Famous Men’s Magazine™.
Heckride interviewed Johnny and Mitchell’s brother, Andrew. Very excited for Coots’ video ♥
There is no shortage of crust evangelists working in New York skateboarding today, but every once in a while, there’s a part so endlessly dedicated to spots with eight things wrong with them that you need to stop and give #respect. Charlie Cassidy’s 4 x 4 part is one of those, and Vague mag has the part + an interview with him about it. The cast of In Crust We Trust would be proud :)
Told you we’d be back on it with a busy front page this week ;)
The countdown is a mix of quick set-ups, tile grinds, a creative grass-roll, and a belated #1.
Have a beautiful weekend ♥
It’s the “picture of Rihanna on vacation as a Monday Links headliner bc shit is slow” point of the summer…
“I remembered from like being a kid and being like ‘Why would I fucking count how many times this dude pushes,’ but then when I saw the Andrew Allen stats and there was like flannel stats and shit I was like, ‘Yes! Fuck dude, thats awesome. I’m not the only one counting weird shit.'” The statisticians at 4-Ply crunched the numbers on all of Frank Gerwer’s footy, and got an interview with the man as well. We need to do a Frank Five Favorite Parts…
The Village Psychic dudes got Steve Brandi to talk us through his Static IV part.
Eby Ghafarian has a new part up over on the Vague site.
