The Perfect 2020 Euro Part Doesn’t Exi… — Weekend Viewing: Patrick Zentgraf’s ‘Kiosq’ Part

By now, the reality that none of us will be spending the money we saved throughout the other three seasons to skate European ledges with our friends has sunk in. So we turn to secondhard means for enjoying the wide-open plazas, which in other years, would take summer priority over any semblance of a savings account.

You may remember Patrick Zentgraf’s Thunder section from this past winter, but his new part put out by Solo feels so much more special — like a friend edited it, rather than the footage being put through whatever impersonal mill churns out truck company commercials.

Gonna be one of those “#2 (or #3) should’ve been #1!”-weeks, but don’t remember the last time there was something as addictively fun to watch as the final clip in here. The crop on the spot so you never quite know what to expect is perfect.

(Yes, this got made early Thursday before the Lotties x Vans thing came out, and a few other things. It’s not a snub!)

Apologies for the slow news week around here. We’ll be back to normal next Monday. Summertime is summertime, yaknow ;)

Have a good one.

Barnacles!

Alexis Sablone self-filmed, scored and edited her new part, which includes a switch varial heelflip that should be played on loop in the flip trick museum.

Not only is Skate Jawn one of the best longstanding American skate ‘zines, but they are also the principal torch-holders for the “video magazine” format that people of a certain age grew up with. Their 10yerr video feels like a spiritual sequel to Fiddy, though more specified in its episodes, with sections in Japan, Prague, extras from the Rust Belt Trap squad, etc.

#QSTOP10 — July 17, 2020

You already knew what would snag #1 placement this week — though this is the first time in a long time where it was hard to choose one ;)

Went with the full spectrum: A) the main trick that incited yelling at the screen (safe to say that if you’re a sponsored, traveling skateboarder, you’ve been to that spot and up until this part, it’s pretty much been a hypothetical joke…the Free guys explained it.), B) some local color (we already alluded to rumors of him at Tekashi 10 back in the winter), and C) just, yeah, you get it.

I then proceeded to steal all the jokes from the group chat for Twitter. (“About to bondo a crack” was supposed to be “Mason Silva taking a bath.”) Thanks, everyone ♥

The Jaakko part was frankly just as tough to pick a single feat from, but who are we to say no to a four trick line with no pushes in-between?

Have a good one ;)
