Quick Lil’ Trip Edit — Carhartt WIP DMV Mix

Photo by Paul Coots

So it snowed today. It sucked. It also means that anybody’s northeastern skateboard pursuits are on borrowed time.

Below is an edit throw together by Ryan Mettz — of first part in The Hit Video fame, yes — from a quick trip down to Baltimore and Washington D.C. that comprised of Max, DREWWWWWWW, Mecca, and Enzo. The latter two both got injured early on in the journey, but you can catch Enzo in The LC Video and Mecca in Group Chat.

It just snowed though. Great time to heal up ❤️

Thankful For ‘Tone — Antonio Durao Raw Clips From the Hardbody Video

If you’re around skateboarding long enough, there is a big chance that your favorites become not the skaters you’ve studied in videos from afar, but those you have gotten the chance to witness in real life. Over all the years of doing QS, we have been blessed with chances to see a lot of incredible skating from a wide array of greats, yet watching Antonio remains a singular experience.

E.J. put together all of Antonio’s raw clips from The Hardbody Video, and it is perhaps the closest depiction of what watching him skate in real life is — at least as close as a mediated video could get.

The Dustin Henry ‘Nice To See You’ Remix by Crazy T

It should come as no surprise that Dustin Henry — who has swept “Skater You Are Most O.K. With Dating Your Daughter” accolades at the QS awards for seven years in a row — had our favorite section in Vans’ globetrotting, multi-editor endeavor, Nice To See You. A month after every single person we know shared his perfectly balanced kickflip front nosegrind around the curve might seem a bit early to remind everyone how much that part fucking ruled, but it’s never too early to have Crazy T remix it with some Third Eye Blind ♥

‘The HSS Video’ By Halloween Stickers Skateboards

Our brainwaves are well-accustomed to the experience of watching a friends video by: wholesome vibes, seshing the same spots together, smiles, daps, hugs, beers, someone hucks more than the others.

But sometimes, our expectations get thrown with the last part. Sly videomakers will hold out until the very end. P.J. Ladd’s Wonderful Horrible Life is the most famous example of this; The Hardbody Video inverted this approach earlier this year.

Maybe you caught Dylan Holderness and Evan Pacheco’s Suppy during 2020’s Skateboard Oscars Season, one of the more low-key releases from the footage onslaught that coincides with the final three months of the year. If you’re not sure, do you remember seeing a clip of a guy kickflipping the double set at the Escape From New York church? Yeah, that’s pretty hard to forget.

Hit You Off Management Presents… ‘Museum of Sex’

When the city began to shut down last spring — before anybody knew wtf was about to happen — skateboarders all had the same thought, and they all wound up at Big Screen Plaza.

Soon, the hotel decided “Fuck this,” boarded the entire park off, and left it like that to this day.

Skateboard endeavors moved northward towards CBS, which was heavily featured in John’s Vid (a video that simultaneously feels like it came out three months ago and three years ago), until that spot got knobbed.

It turns out that the real party was at the Museum all along — a spot that 4Ply learned was the most frequent #QSTOP10-featured New York spot in 2020. Considering there has been a generation (two?) of skateboarders who have not experienced a period of the Museum being a go, it’s no wonder everyone flocked there to take advantage of the glitch.

Paul Young logged some heavy hours there this past spring and summer, and came back with this edit featuring Mark Humienik, Joe Russo, Nick Ferro, Vin Perso, Joseph Delgado, German Nieves, Ben Tenner, Myles Underwood, Dana Ericson and Dick Rizzo.
