“I went to a trade school in the 8th grade to try out a few potential careers that might be interesting. I was in a HVAC course and we all had to use the older guys’ work clothes, which was like a lab coat that doctors would wear. Well, when I put mine on, it was super big on me, so everyone started calling me ‘Dr. Z.’ It just kinda stuck. I wish it was a better story but there you go.” Zered Bassett sits down with The Chromeball Incident for a #longform, career-spanning interview.
Josh Stewart is a lunatic and put his body through another Static video. The trailer is live. (He promised it’s the last one.) Excited for that Jordan Trahan part.
Paul Young B.K.A. Hit You Off Management on the mix for the latest Bronze 56k Radio.
We went to this iconic chunk of New Jersey crust last summer, and somebody in the car was like, “I heard some Brazilian dude frontside flipped into this.” Didn’t doubt it, because, you know — Brazilian skaters — but wow. The footage dropped in Retta Skateshop’s Atemporal video that went live on Free last week. It’s in Rafael Gomes’ incredible closer part, which includes an ender at another famous nearby Jersey bank. *Prepares for somebody to say “Tony Macaroni from Lodi actually already frontside flipped into that in 1912.”*
Brianna Delaney has a new, all-Barcelona part out for Grand Collection and Converse. In a career full of incredible back tails, that ender still belongs in the hall of fame.
Our guy Rafael Pereira B.K.A. Haffa dropped a new part filmed on his travels throughout Latin America, with some impeccable switch heel form to close things out.
Hardbody Beast Coast Tour — Part 1.
Congrats to Beatrice on the pro board. Stephen Ostrowski has a cool story about the guest trick that she had in his Glue part on IG.
Austin Bristow dropped a seven-minute edit of the Palace boys, entitled “Laust in Translation.” Includes what is effectively a full-ish Rory Milanes part, and an ender part from Lucien Clarke, which wraps up with him hitting some of the same locations from the very first Palace trip to New York edit from 2011.
The Jenkem dudes snuck into what can without hyperbole be called the biggest bust in New York City (the Roosevelt Island Monument), so Julian Lewis could pull off two N.B.Ds. Fakie flip was worth a summons though :)
Alexis Lacroix (the 2019 Q.S.O.T.Y.) is the latest guest on The Bunt. The origin story behind the eponymous catch-phrase is as good as you think it is.
A new edition of Bronze 56k radio to help celebrate that stimmy.
Skate Jawn and Adidas came together for a new edit of the current Philly generation, which includes the first Jamal Smith sighting in a minute ♥

We are never not in the midst of a perpetual stop and go with “Five Favorite Parts.” (The last one was Suciu in …September!) With just three days left in January, going to make a public pledge on here to do one of these a month for all of 2021 ♥
The year’s first installment comes from the first lady of F.A. who has made straight-on no comply mechanics make sense to my no-comply-deficient brain more than anyone else — but not enough for me to actually have a breakthrough because no complys will never make sense ;)
