A Sea of Stolen Spitfire Tools

Choose your fighter^^^

Vice (remember that ol’ thing?) has a new series called “Let It Kill You,” which explores the intersection of skateboarding and art. Their opening episode is with Mike Giglotti, who gets into his craft, his shop Lottie’s, and doing the art for Baker Skateboards.

How do you promote a truck company collab? “Idk, Hawaii I guess!” E.G.O.T. winners Stafhon Boca and Etienne Gagne went to the 50th state for an Alltimers x Thunder trip.

“Sole Tech’s trio of shoe companies were the last remaining skater-owned legacy brands on the market. They helped define multiple eras and generations of the industry and culture.” Simple Magic dives into the acquisition of Sole Tech by a ….snowboard conglomerate. Much love to Don and everyone that works over there. This remains one of our favorite things we’ve ever published on QS, and the Sole Tech crew’s enthusiasm in helping us was pretty much unparalleled when it comes to story sources.

Greg Hunt profiled Tyshawn Jones in a five-minute video spot for his new Adidas pro model.

Rezza Will Be Starring in the New Season of ‘Game of Thrones’ — Bronze & Alltimers’ Bronztimers Tour Video

To celebrate their long-time-coming collaboration, Alltimers and Bronze embarked on an ol’ fashioned east coast tour through our nation’s capital, the city of brotherly love, the city of firsts, the city where they filmed The Departed — and how could we forget Albany?!

Throughout their skateboard hijinx, they face many ups and downs as they come of age: front-flipping security guards, excruciating gutterballs, rollercoaster casino runs, many McFeely bangers, and shoes of years’ past yearning for that elusive Sidlauskas John Hancock.

And they emerge all the stronger for their tribulations, towing accolades that range from Olympic medals to farmland ownership to 11-figure deals from late-aughts clothiers. Five stars.

J’Adore — Will Marshall’s DC Part

The night before the Dime event in Paris, we were at some random bar (that sold scratch-off tickets …fuck) with Will Marshall, expounding on the virtues of Créteil, the downhill marble ledge spot in the Paris suburbs that was once called the best spot in the world on the pages of this website (until we visited Prague.) Will was less convinced of the hyperbolic status we were atoning it with, mainly because our understanding of skateboard mechanics is too plebeian to notice them. It was like being impressed with some expensive car that a seasoned mechanic knew every flaw of. Nobody present was in the habit of arguing with the hard-earned wisdom of a master, obviously.

ANYWHO, he did mention he had put in some work there regardless (“It’s easy™”), much of which pops up in his Paris-heavy new part for DC.

Did you know every pool table is also a skate spot?

Drive The Fiat Like It Was A Chevy

“I hate to lean on this clichéd-ass targeted-ad-ass assertion, but skateboarding is a global support system.” Zach Baker wrote a trip article about an Alltimers trip to Medellín for Thrasher. The video + Joel Meinholz’s photography from it are all included 🇨🇴 Somebody bring Tom Knox to that first plaza.

Known goat, Jawn Gardner, empties and shreds an abandoned pool in Bridgewater, NJ that was built during the Eisenhower administration, and skated as far back as the mid-80s — while giving us a nice history lesson in the process 🐐
