#QSTOP10 — September 30, 2022

Impossible to pick a clip from the part at number 1, just as it was impossible to pick a single clip from the part at number 2 — but like the philosopher Charles Rivard once said, “Impossible is only a skate trick.” (There are, however, no impossibles on the countdown this week.)

See everyone at the Vans block party (we have a lil’ something there…) + Alltimers premiere tomorrow. All info can be found on this flyer.)

Have a good one 🥂

Maintaining that mystery feels about right for someone who appreciates skateboarding that has a “rare” feel to it.

There’s def an official Thrasher edit incoming, but Zubr ripped and combined everyone’s IG stories of Tyshawn’s Can Jam at Blue Park this past Saturday into a single video. Shout out to the legend who continues to show up to all the skate events and films with his laptop.
