Naquan Rollings released a new edit on YouTube. Mostly L.A. stuff, with a bit of New York. Features all the staple characters from Naquan edits, and an impeccable transition from Sada Baby to MF Doom, whose MM..Food album has been #trending a bit as of late…
Jason Byoun made a recap edit of the Hardbody trip to L.A. Lots of food pics. Hard to watch and not get hungry 🌯
Torn to shit by weather and use, bondo’d back to functionality, and still standing — the Trenton Banks have to be one of the longest-standing O.G. New Jersey spots at this point. Phat House dropped a “10 Years of Trenton Banks” covering a greatest hits of their crew’s footage at the spot, and including a young Ishod Wair doing something obviously insane.
Simple Magic released an updated version of its Skaters With Glasses Power Ranking, which can’t resist the easy puns like “he may need glasses, but [Diego] Todd’s vision is 20/20 when it comes to finding and figuring out interesting, unassuming, and downright dangerous skate spots.”

Young goat Kyota Umeki is the latest guest on the Angel & Z podcast. (Also happy bday.)
“Bunt” is a 7-minute edit out of the Rochester scene by Steve Custozzo, spotted via Skate Jawn, and of no relation to the podcast.
Insta loosie comps have been like 20% of what gets posted on here in recent years (media landcape ‘n shit, yaknow), but this one rules: someone mashed together 11 minutes of Steel McAdam and Coles Bailey Insta loosies. Obvs biased, but can’t wait ’til both of them are pro ❤️
We’re all on the same page that Keith having his name and face on a Tech Deck is maybe a bigger life hammer than him having his name and face on an actual skateboard, right? What a time to be alive.
Anthony Pappalardo the Writer interviewed Amy Ellington about KCDC, twenty years in Williamsburg, and running the longest-operating female-owned skate shop in the United States. (Also a former employer of the aforementioned Keith!)
Brianna Delaney and Lee Madden dropped on a new part that also chronicles her transition and journey from the past few years ❤️ Features plenty of stunning lines and some of the best back tails in the biz.
Going to echo the resoundingly unanimous praise about Free x Memory Screen’s Ray Barbee remix/tribute/epic. Immune to trends, utterly timeless, and a shoo-in for one of the coolest skateboarders of all-time — there will never be another Ray Barbee. It was also a reminder to revisit the time Genny interviewed him for QS.
“Took this at the corner of 3rd Street and 2nd Avenue almost eight years ago to the day. DMX was stopped at the intersection waiting for a red light. I nervously fumbled to get my phone out, framed him up, snapped one off and gave him a nod. He smiled, nodded back and told me to buy his record. The light turned green and he was off… R.I.P.” — Keith Denley, 4.14.13 / NY, NY
Not often that you see such an expanding brain take on skating the Courthouse Drop :)
The Skate Media™ loves Hungary’s Rios Crew. They’ve kept it interesting and evolving for so long. Just take it from Live’s lovely write-up on Mátyás Ricsi’s new Rios part, or the corresponding Grey interview with him about it. Budapest and Marseilles — that’s the post-pandemic travel wishlist, and that has everything to do with watching random skate edits on the internet ♥
