Here’s a belated “spring break” clip from the Kyota and the Frog Skateboards Jr. team. (#TRENDWATCH2018: LNDN DRGS? Didn’t see that one coming…)
Some inspiration for the 30+ crowd — a Patrick Bös part, entitled “Visiting Friends,” of which a ~third is filmed in New York.
New five-minute montage from the guys who everyone spent the past decade ripping off: “Gang Green” via Winnepeg’s Green Apple Skateshop. It’s somewhere between Ty Evans’ Genesis video from 1997, and Sinner in Theatrix.
TWS uploaded a remastered edition of 411VM #3. Philly Metrospective is gold.
Boil the Ocean weighs in on Jason Jessee.
It’s helmet season! Cooper Winterson has a three-minute clip from Riverside Skatepark, which contrary to a fall 2017 QS tee, was not taken by aliens, and has not been demolished for its approved redesign.
“No one knew what kind of permit he needed to operate a ski lift in a snowless area.” Huck usually posts awful stuff pertaining to skateboarding, but they have an interesting-enough article about a dude who retired from winemaking in the late-80s, and tried to essentially make a ski hill but for skateboards outside of Montpellier, France. The video kinda paints a better picture than the photos though ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Nothing to do with skateboarding but everything to do with skateboarding: the design podcast, 99% Invisible, tells the story of how curb cuts were invented in America.
Spot Updates — 1) For whatever fortuitous reason, the Parks Department removed the knobs from the runway of the Battery Park City ledge-to-flatbar. Haven’t been here all spring, so not sure how recent it is, but yeah, it’s a go. 2) The scaffolding is off from the Chase steps.
QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: We’re potentially in for a 4-0 Finals, so here’s Joel Embiid making a funny on a Philadelphia streetball court.
Quote of the Week: “Bro, you should just move to Kips Bay.” — Brengar
This is the best song he’s made since HNDRXX came out. Beast Mode 2 orrrrr…?
