Some Footage …For Posterity’s Sake

It is easy to forget that we’ve been living in “this” for two years already, given that 2020 and 2021 feel like one giant blob of time. And for all the things that have irreversibly changed during the pandemic, skateboarding — particularly with friends outside, not in a skatepark — has remained a consistent comfort for all of us.

I found this folder of unused footage that Dre filmed almost two years ago (a lot of the A-roll stuff wound up in Josh’s “Quaranteam” part), and just got sappy and appreciative skimming through it, so felt compelled to put it on a timeline to have as a memento ☺️

This Magic Shmoment

Andre Claus by Tom Gorelik

Limosine [sic], the much speculated-on company born out of the exodus from 917 via much of the same roster (Logan, Cyrus, Max et al. + some new teamriders), released a five-minute teaser for their upcoming video ❤️

This one deserves way more burn on the skateboard media circuit: “blast!” by Vancouver-based videographer, Chance Swainson. Starts off with Dustin Henry and his brother, continues with a whole slate of new-gen Vancouver dudes, and has an awesome ender part from Tremaine Glasgow — with incredible #musicsupervision the whole way through. Can’t remember the last time I wanted someone to land a trick as bad as Tre’s boardslide on the wood fence.

Feels kinda crazy starting a QS update without a picture of Keith… Was tempted to use some of Pat Steiner’s modern art masterpieces this week, but we have a whole year-end content season for that! ;)

Jawn Gardner leads the charge on an important message with a nine-minute documentary about shedding the stigma of discussing mental health issues in the skate community ♥

On the chance that you haven’t been catching the …Arizona Iced Tea skate team edits on the TWS site (..yeah!), some of the most insane skateboarding in New York released this year was via their trip edit, e.g. the back tail off the marble kicker, the switch frontside flip across from the Stock Exchange, etc. TWS just posted up the first two raw edits from it, and wow it is crazy to look back at how desolate the city was last fall.

Where In The World Is Tommy Cuilan?

Huf on West Broadway (the summer before 9/11) by Gerhard Stochl, via Science Versus Life.

A video profile of Jahmal Williams for Juxtapoz magazine.

There are tried-and-true tales of crust synonymous with New Jersey, Philly, Ohio and the greater midwest — but for some reason, as the eastern seaboard begins transitioning into seafood shacks and Ivy League schools, a lot of that narrative gets lost, despite the fact that spots in places like Connecticut are every bit as rugged as those of its crustaceous neighbors. “Your Big Cheesecake” is a 14-minute video out of Connecticut by Dave Sullivan that is well-worth your time, and full of spots that you haven’t grown tired of seeing ♥ It really ramps up a few octaves at the end …that nollie at Trinity in particular, wow.

(Saw that comments weren’t working for most of last week. That issue has [*hopefully*] been fixed. If you’re a devout QS commenter and still getting an error, hit us on social or e-mail.)

“Every interview cemented that yeah, he accomplished a lot but it was about skateboarding and that actually meant something that he fostered: growing a community by supporting people you believe in.” Anthony Pappalardo the Writer wrote a bit about Huf’s impact on him as an east coaster with teen eyes on San Francisco in the nineties.

Village Psychic re: “Huf & Friends” from Interface.

TWS rounded up the words and tributes from fellow pro skaters about the influence Keith Hufnagel had on their lives ♥

All remaining QS tees + whatever else we have left is on sale for cheap on our webstore. Mostly smalls and mediums left ♥ Thanks for your support, as always.
