Thanks to everyone who grabbed something off the webstore sale last week. Should be caught up on shipping by end of today 📦💨
The NPR Story on the A.V.E. bench spills a bit of the secret on how the bench got to Richmond, Virginia at the end, straight from…the Temple University police. Bravo to skateboarders, for always figuring it out. If you aren’t already aware, @ave_bench on Instagram has been tracking the world tour at every turn.
This one premiered over the weekend, but only catching it now.
Stephen Ostrowski’s projects always feel special, and the latest is obviously no exception — though it’s hard not to wish that Stephen had a bit more time in front of the lens 😔
“wick & spit” is a Glue Skateboards + extended family video, featuring an intro part from Leo Baker (crazy that Carroll Gardens schoolyard truly popped off as soon as the Carroll manny pad met its demise), and a heavy closer from Donovan Wildfong, which includes the elusive *triple replay* of a clip from the same angle. In between, you’ll find guest clips from QS favorites like Cooper Winterson, Akobi Williams, Briana Delaney and Evan Wasser.
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 ;)

Moving right along…
QS is by no means a Laker enterprise — just trying to be supportive of any and all events that lead to joy in the life of shirtless icon, J.R. Smith. Also L O L L L L L L at him having as many titles as the entire New York Kn*cks franchise.
Theories caught up with a bunch of New York skaters to ask about their spot hunting stories from the initial COVID shutdown in the city. Those days when Natural History, CBS and Big Screen were all a go at once were magic amongst the shit ♥
Alex Klein wrote a piece on his friendship with Keith Hufnagel over on GQ.
Lurker Lou’s new part, “Lou Flowers” is now live ♥
