Pour que tu m’aimes — ‘DEMBANDZ’ by Pagaille

For years, there’s been this “rule” in the QS charter that we won’t host any video over thirty minutes in length. It was a simple way to set a boundary on the amount of time we could spend vetting videos: a few hour-long videos is a pretty big chunk of the workweek, yaknow? But all rules meet an eventual exception, and today, the board of directors signed off on us presenting DEMBANDZ to the QS viewership.

Max Wasungu had mentioned that him and his Pagaille crew had been working on a full-length project — one that would feature his first proper *part*when we interviewed him back in February. It’s eleven minutes over the “limit,” but it’s so beautifully fried that it didn’t feel right to just cut a part out of it as a standalone thing.

Water Street and its peripheries in New York’s financial district, offer a handful of conventionally “good” skateboarding destinations. Head towards Battery Park and you may see someone giving security the slip at C-Benches or a visiting pro on a pilgrimage at Pyramid Ledges. However, between 2015 to 2020, one might have have found Stu Kirst atop a skinny, eight-feet high platform, sizing up a route obliquely hidden in plain sight.

Loophole Wheels Presents: Dustin Eggeling & Mark Humienik’s ‘2nd Visions’ Part

Zach Chamberlin and the urethane purveyors at Loophole Wheels recently premiered a new full-length video called 2nd Visions. They were kind enough to share Dustin Eggeling and Mark Humienik’s shared section in their latest — two easterners wading their way through Bay Area inclines and cutty patches of crust, with a few New York clips peppered through. Our noseslide awards have been spotty over the past couple of years, but that one inside the planter that Mark does is sure to be in contention if there’s budget for a Noseslider of the Year ceremony later in 2024…

In case you missed them, Grey shared Andréa Dupré & Guillaume Nozieres’ shared part last week (that tre flip nose manny should’ve probably been on Top 10…) and Free shared Hiroki Muroka’s part a couple months back.
