Live Every Day Like It’s Chuck’s Birthday

It’s sold out everywhere, but just another nod to how great the Brandon Turner guest board for Carpet Company is. 10/10 to everyone involved.

Thanks to everybody who grabbed something from the webstore last week ♥ Should be caught up on shipping in the next few days. Available at shops worldwide now. If you came looking for XLs after the relaunch and it was coming up sold out, check back now. Restocked a bunch of styles in XL. (Will do 2XL on the next release for everyone who has been asking, yes.)

Last week, the New York City Public Design Commission voted unanimously to remove and relocate the Roosevelt statue in front of the Museum of Natural History. There are renderings available that propose fully flattening the chains + pedestal section of the plaza skate spot, but there has been no formal decision on the design once the statue is gone — with people saying they should rethink the pedestal space (A.K.A. the #perfectlearningheight ledge that everyone loves) rather than just leveling where it once stood.

The Price of Fireworks is Skyrocketing

Summer QS goods available in shops worldwide now. (Should be arriving in Europe / the U.K. throughout the week.) The QS webstore relaunches with summer items this Wednesday, June 23rd, at 11 A.M. E.S.T. Photo above via Labor Skateshop.

It’s incredible that when some people rally for the preservation of a place that inadvertently became an iconic skate spot, it could just get kept the same and furnished with flawless new ground — rather than the alternative, which is of course, them being told to go fuck themselves. ANYWHO, the Hélas caps company offers a who’s who of European ledgesmanship in its latest video filmed entirely at Lyon’s Hotel de Ville plaza.

There’s a solid batch of New York clips in Kevin White’s new “GLOBETROTTER” part. (Everyone get your time in on that Tribeca manny pad while that corner is still up for lease…) He’s also the latest subject of Pocket‘s always-enjoyable “Followed” series.

Rain All Week

Wavey via Troy

Hardbody Puerto Rico shirts for Puerto Rican Day on the Hardbody site.

This video rules: “Me And My Dogs” by Will Poon, spotted via Skate Jawn. It’s great how a childhood skate crew video set in New York circa 2021 (e.g. the type of video that will forever exist through all generations of skateboarding) has the potential to get you more hyped to skate than a summer blockbuster :)

“You know what I like? When people go pro. You know what I like more? When people go pro as fuck.” The forever-brilliant Bronze 56k radio mixes are back with a Dick Rizzo guest mix. Shout out to Group Home “Tear Shit Down.” Also forgot how good that Wayne song is.

Carl Aikens and Hosea Peeters’ shared a Thrasher part last week that includes some final remnants of plazacation at Big Screen Plaza :)

Grand Reopening

Naquan Rollings has a new 16-minute video up on Thrasher. Mostly footage from trips out west, but a few New York clips in the middle. Marcello’s trick on the Joe’s Pizza Park thing was rad.

This story is crazy, sad, unbelievable: three men died early on Saturday morning after speeding past an intersection into the dead end street that contains the L.I.C. D.I.Y. spot. The car apparently went over the barrier, through the woodsy zone, and was submerged into Newtown Creek.

Anyone know if Little Island has spots yet? Jk, jk — that’s a rhetorical question. They prob won’t even let you in there with a board ;)

Like Whoa

Send Za” is the latest New York edit from videographer Eryk Burton. Ender nollie heel at the new spot everyone’s been getting yelled at is wild.

“I always liked no complies, even when they weren’t cool.” Love these — “Watching Jerry Fowler with Jerry Fowler” is the latest in Village Psychic’s “Watching” series, and it’s about his Continuum part. Glad that he likes it, because it rules ♥ Doing one of these with Jahmal about his section would be just as rad :)

The union bosses at Hit You Off Management re-saturated and remixed some of Dick Rizzo’s Grand Prairie clips.
