Private Shredquity

QS x Cons Available March 1 🏀

Vague has a premiere of Brian Powderly’s Static 6 part. Ollieing into that smudge of asphalt on the other side of the Ridgewood Reservoir spot is, as they say, ~completely unhinged~.

Vague also sat down for an extended video chat with three of the principal filmers behind the Static series to talk all the things that skate videographers talk about 🧠

Another Vague link?! Yes, another Vague link: they interviewed Hopps teamrrider and QS office favorite, Kyler Garrison.

Kicked Out of the Bar By the Swedish Military

Lucien Clarke in the Financial District by Mike Heikkila 📷 for 2001 Mag

We have our first one-spot video of 2024! Kurt Havens filmed a video entirely at the Abraham Lincoln statue in Prospect Park to show the world how much joy and creativity could be extracted from an innocuous patch of smooth stone in the middle of a big, green park. It has been added to the QS One-Spot Part Map 📍🐢

“The ConEd Banks sit quietly near the entrance to a mysterious 300-acre parcel of land that has been a site of energy, pollution, and controversy for over 100 years.” Village Psychic wrote the history of the ConEd Banks, which has a strong crossover with the New York hardcore scene of the 1980s. (Before anyone asks, yes we have looked into doing a “Favorite Spot” with Zered about it, but the consensus seemed to be that the footy was too scattered.)

Paris De Noche is the new video from Naquan Rollings filmed in New York, Philly and Paris, with standout clips from Jahmir Brown and Carl Aikens.

They don’t post on Instagram!” Yeah, well, they have a fire new website with a bunch of things to do on it besides buy shit, while your other favorite company’s entire existence is dependent on an IG page.

It’s Like Zero Bond, But With A Mini Ramp

HARD DRIVE is a New Haven, Connecticut scene video from the younger generation gyrating around Plush Skateshop. We have a soft spot for CT videos on here in general, but this one is very special. It makes a small(ish) city like New Haven feel like a big city scene and a small town all at once, full of night footage and the sort of third-eye-open spots you find when traversing the same hometown back lots over and over. No names, no info, but it rules. Last dude rips.

Most Wanted” is the latest bi-coastal edit from Crazy Ass Paterson Skaters. Ross’ kickflip front 5050 was 10/10.

The O.G. Tompkins bench is at the Star Team Shop.

BARRIO” is a new, all-Bronx edit from the Hunny Dip NYC crew. Kickflip back tail on one of those planter rails is a wild thing to try 💪

“Going to the Noguchi Museum to sit in the garden before I try a trick.” If you wondered how Trung Nguyen got to be …well, Trung Nguyen, the answer is sitting in a zen garden before trying to get the clip — as evidenced by Skate Jawn‘s latest “$100 Chill” episode, which features the last filming day for Late Nite Stars’ O video.

“Xavier, what does ‘rap game Bob Burnquist’ mean?” “It means I’m the rap game Bob Burnquist.” Our friend Greg Navarro hung out with Xaviersobased for a wholesome day in the life video that gives insight into his music and origins. “Skater boys always got motion, man.”

The Skate Muzik podcast’s latest year-end episode covers the best #musicsupervision moments heard throughout 2023’s skate videos.
