Scumco and Tristan Mershon present Striking Distance 2, their latest project featuring Jake Baldini, Dave Abair, Kyle Nicholson, the legend Jerry Mraz, the legend Kevin Taylor, and many of today’s most esteemed crust evangelists.
Will Rosenstock and Venue Skateshop present Ninetyfour, the latest full-ish length video from Bust Crew and the slice in time when the A.V.E. bench was in Richmond, Virginia.
Huge past week for Ty Beall, who had heavy footage across both of the aforementioned projects, in addition to this mini part for Pepper Grip.
Jake Todd’s Philly [and beyond] video, Devil’s Pocket, is now live in full.

“The heelflip to kickflip ratio is also an impressively well-balanced 9:10.” 4-Ply Mag crunched the numbers on Tyshawn’s “General” part. (on the off chance that you’re smarter than everyone else and don’t have Instagram, Thrasher also dropped an addendum Insta part.)
If the front skatepark section of the B.Q.E-adjacent park is Zered Park, then the back, basketball court street section is definitely Leo Park, as evidenced by the new Leo Baker Spitfire part.

Rest in Peace, New York City payphones ❤️
Why go to Greece like all the other skate crews, when you can go to a hell-like planet that rains lava in the night footy? (Nah, jk – Greece is pretty dope.)
We’re up to 80 spots! Just added Dustin Eggeling’s “Reggaeton” part for Village Psychic (as in…the ledges, not the music genre) to the QS One-Spot Part Map. Includes guest tricks from Kyler Garrison, Brian Scherer + Keith Denley.
Frankie Decker talks Vegas, late shuvs, and the “Evan Frankie” ender in his new interview for Heckride. (Does anyone remember what edit the backside flip down the Canal and Division set at the Manhattan Bridge is?)
Sorry, sometimes the headline is too obvious to resist 💋
WOW2G is a new 22-minute video by Eighty Twenty, Hell World, and the Travel Skateshop family. Half-New York, half-Jersey spots. Aron Moloney (first full part) and Derek Thor (second-to-last part) both crush it. The pinches on those switch front crooked grinds!
Also a decent dose of Jersey City footy in Neema Joorabchi’s new B-roll montage.
If you haven’t seen Fred Gall’s “Out There” on Thrasher, it fucking rules. Make yourself a nice sandwich and throw on his Bobshirt interview from 2018 afterwards.
Austyn Gillette by Andrew James Peters. 2011.
An interesting quarantine contest would be best rendition of Fred Gall’s phone call to Tony Hawk, which Boil the Ocean just transcribed for posterity purposes. That means comic book renderings, live action re-creations, claymation, anime, abstract art, whatever. Kinda like a skate version of The Simpsons “Steamed Hams” remixes. Yes? No? Do we call a Zoom meeting to figure out logistics?
“The only TV show I’ve been watching is FaceTime with Mitch B.” Will Marshall is the latest guest on The Bunt. Will has a tactful ability to almost *go there* but he never quite goes there, unless of course, you skate for Bones Wheels ♥
