Swedish Skate Mafia — Poetic Collective’s Svampen Mix

The Quartersnacks One-Spot Part Map is two months away from its first birthday. What began as a list of 46 parts and videos filmed exclusively at one spot — a pursuit that obviously boomed in popularity on account of the pandemic and travel restrictions — has nearly doubled to being 20 entries shy of 100 in less than a year.

We first became #internetfriends with the Poetic Collective crew after labeling Simon Källkvist as “some Swedish guy” in an old QS Top 10 and having to rectify the shade. Sadly, we haven’t been able to become #realfriends with any of them on account of the reasons outlined in the paragraph above — but we do share an affinity for what is essentially the equivalent of Malmö’s T.F.

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 😔

In between, you’ll find guest clips from QS favorites like Cooper Winterson, Akobi Williams, Briana Delaney and Evan Wasser.

“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.
