Angel and the Papi Brand dudes dropped the new installment of their Bronx-centric video series, and it’s the most extensive one yet: Bill$ 4 Inflation went live last week. Features great parts from Angel Fonseca (who’s still getting better and better) and Justin Adams + other homies, and a lot of dives into Bronx spots that only the locals skate.
Nothing is touching Limo edits right now. It’s not even that much skating, but the eight minutes fly by in Limosine’s North Carolina trip video featuring the entire team.
Ryan Mettz made an extended edition remix of Max Palmer’s “Spiked Off” part from March with more guest clips, B-sides and unseen clips.
Feels like fuckin’ yesterday: The Shady One dove into some old footage and made a “Summer With Friends 2016” montage that provides a vivid snapshot of downtown Manhattan skateboarding just seven short years ago. Features pretty much anyone you would’ve seen in a Johnny Wilson video circa 2016.
Village Psychic put together all of Zered’s footage from the objectively bad skatepark next to the B.Q.E. They call it “Bad Park.” Zered calls it “Shit Park.” Queue up Z’s quote from when the park first opened: “Yeah, it’s terrible…but I’ll still skate it all the time.”
Ok, let’s get all the remaining 2020 Year-in-Review content out of the way now, lest we ever need to discuss it again. (More as a courtesy to all the people #creating #content, not for nostalgia’s sake.)
“Just cuz it’s obvious don’t make it wrong.” Boil the Ocean wrapped its annual countdown of the year’s ten best parts (+ a bonus track of ten more.)
Our friends at the Milan-based Skate Muzik podcast have a new NTS Radio episode that runs down some skate video #musicsupervision highlights from last year. That “Joy Road” song from Will Miles’ “Lambrusco” edit goes. Surprised the song Alicia Keys made about Max Palmer didn’t make it on there tbh.

HUF uploaded a raw footy diary of a cross-country road trip with Mason Silva, which includes much of the Spitfire part. The New York portion runs from ~6:55 through the end. It’s rad to see him pay tribute to Jake Johnson Mind Field-era spots, and they do a good job of showing why that West Houston Street hubba was an NBD for so long.
Angel Fonseca has a new part out that’ll have you missing summer days at that BAM ledge.
Vague magazine shared Hiroki Muraoka’s part from the new Traffic video, Third Shift. It includes a *wild* keyhole kickflip at the McCarren Park couch.
The classic “We’ve been stuck at Columbus Park all day but at least there’s a pretty sunset”-photo. Any skaters ever from these buildings?

“Are you getting the Travis Scott SBs?”
“Yeah, we’re getting them. We’re doing a raffle over the phone — you just have to sing a Travis Scott song right now. Just tell us which one, and we’ll drop the beat.”
Area Code is a new full-length video out of The Bronx by Edgar Padilla. Features an opener from Angel Fonseca, and an ender part from Olu Stanley. And like any video out of The Bronx, it feels refreshingly different than the Tompkins-Mural Ledge-Pyramids Ledges-whatever circuit we find ourselves in on a typical #content hunt.
