Ryan Mettz’s ‘Mettz Quest 2’ for Skate Jawn — A New One w/ Karim, Cyrus, Max, DREWWW, Nik & Them…

Had to check into the office real quick on a weekend because last night, Ryan Mettz dropped an edit for Skate Jawn that ticks every one of the QS boxes, and tugs at all of our heartstrings.

“Mettz Quest 2” is a peek behind many of the sessions that shaped John’s Vid, Paul Coots’ HIT Video, and Limosine’s Paymaster. Includes appearances from Cyrus, Karim, Max and them, plus video evidence of the Andrew Wilson back tail behind the Home Depot in Gowanus — the trajectory / physics of which make far less sense IRL than on video, perhaps even less-so now that the building chiseled out the quick-crete job on the barrier. Had trouble explaining that trick to a car of people scoping the spot out once.

Thanks Mettz! New Skate Jawn photo issue out now.

Everyone have a fabulous weekend ❤️

Must Believe in Spring

DREWWWWWWWWW. Photo by Max Hull.

Young legend Marcello Campanello is the latest to be profiled on Pocket‘s “Followed” series for a Queens x Tompkins day. Some of the crispest flip tricks in the business; that warm-up over the grate is crazy. That restaurant they hit at the end looks fire too 🔥

ICYMI: Darren Harper’s “Out There” is a must-watch, and a literal representation of the “skateboarding saved my life” axiom that we hear so much. And it is right on time given the uncertain future that Pulaski Park is facing. Some of those archive tricks they run back are still so nuts 🤯

Vega alert 🚨 Buggy Alert 🚨 J.P. Blair went to Spain with the Bronze boys. Sweeter than sangria out a box.

Nine minutes of Elijah Odom loosies!!!

Quick Lil’ Trip Edit — Carhartt WIP DMV Mix

Photo by Paul Coots

So it snowed today. It sucked. It also means that anybody’s northeastern skateboard pursuits are on borrowed time.

Below is an edit put together by Ryan Mettz — of first part in The Hit Video fame, yes — from a quick trip down to Baltimore and Washington D.C. that comprised of Max, DREWWWWWWW, Mecca, and Enzo. The latter two both got injured early on in the journey, but you can catch Enzo in The LC Video and Mecca in Group Chat.

It just snowed though. Great time to heal up ❤️

Like Glowstick, We Crack Then Shine

Antonio tomfoolery in the QS Dunk that is coming out pretty soon :) Photo by Jason Lecras

From a skate house above a chicken shop by Southbank to a GQ feature: Fashion-writer-who-actually-skates-and-can-write, Noah Johnson, profiled the minds behind Palace for a feature in Famous Men’s Magazine™.

Heckride interviewed Johnny and Mitchell’s brother, Andrew. Very excited for Coots’ video ♥

There is no shortage of crust evangelists working in New York skateboarding today, but every once in a while, there’s a part so endlessly dedicated to spots with eight things wrong with them that you need to stop and give #respect. Charlie Cassidy’s 4 x 4 part is one of those, and Vague mag has the part + an interview with him about it. The cast of In Crust We Trust would be proud :)

‘Let’s Talk After the Summer’

Photographer Ben Colen and his family need our help. Please donate if you have the means.

Tyshawn. Switch ollie. Metal traffic barricade. Wow.

Pushing Against Racism is an initiative launched by the Good Push Alliance along with a dozen other social skateboard organizations to promote a commitment against racism within the skate community and beyond. Skateism also has a full feature about it if you’d like to learn more ♥

DREWWWWWW was on the “Angel & Z” podcast chatting about skating n’ things for an hour.

Ok, this might legitimately be the largest slate of locally-filmed videos to make it on one of these link round-ups in a long time, so let’s get to it…
