Over the course of filming No Idea, the Alltimers boys logged some hours at Login Lava spots out west to escape what has scarred many as one of our worst winters in years. Below are all the outtakes from L.A. that didn’t make the final cut, via everyone. Filmed by Daniel Wheatley and Corey McNeill.
They also have a bunch of new stuff on their webstore today if you’re trying to garm up for your summer getaway, and are still sad about how you missed out on QS shorts ;)
It was mid-July 2017, hot out, and we were in an air conditioned bar enjoying some adult beverages. Ben Blundell walked in with some fire Celine glasses at 11 P.M., and a conversation that centered around how the skeleton of the inaugural Alltimers full-length was taking form, drifted towards another fashionable subject: fashion itself.
Even a year removed from MadeinTYO’s sleeper hit, we began to talk about Gucci polo shirts. Then, an offer was made. E.T. had to film a full-length video part, and in return, his sponsors would purchase him a Gucci polo as a reward.
If you want to be technical about it, Torey did in fact make him promise that it would be “the greatest skate video part of all-time.”
But what IS “time?” Recent research has indicated that time — not money — is the 21st century’s greatest commodity. Are you really going to waste it thinking about all the other video parts that came before it? Is E.T’s part in the Alltimers video better than Guy in Mouse? Is it better than Jason Byoun in Life is Goodie?
You’re really going to spend the world’s most precious commodity on those fickle questions? No, hopefully, you’re not an idiot.
Alltimers’ first full-length features full parts from Etienne “Gucci Polo” Gagne, Dustin “Skater You Would Be Most OK With Your Daughter Dating” Henry, and a shared part from Tyler Warren and Ben Blundell.
Appearances from Adrian Vega, Will Marshall, Dan Ericson, Brian Delaney, Zered Bassett, Conor Prunty, Adam Zhu, and Charles Rivard.
These “new old” clips can be hit-or-miss (often miss), but Tombo’s 2000-2010 one that dropped late last week is an incredible document. It encapsulates the entire first decade of east coast skateboarding in this millennium — brown pants, first-wave cellar door searchers, Justin Barnes cameos, I-Paths, ABC Ledges, etc. Also, why does it still feel like Brandon Westgate has been 20-years-old for the past 15 years?
It’s that time of year when the Barcelona clips really start to roll in. Spencer Hamilton, Dana Ericson, Brian Delaney, Nick Ferro and Wade D. went out to the land of zero skate spots and came back with a sick clip for Grand Collection.
Much respect to Uru out in Japan for distributing and spreading the word about QS, Alltimers and other hot skateboard brands in the far east. Skateboard Story has an interview with him about his operation.
You can take the Bostonian out of Boston, but you can’t take the Boston out of the Bostonian. In the days of Joey Pepper’s Aesthetics section and Jahmal Williams riding for DNA, Boston was the epicenter of bump-to-bleacher skateboarding. Longing for those sweet green metal days and displaced from their homeland, some savvy New Englanders decided “Fuck going to Reggaeton Ledges” this past summer, and began their own propped up empire nearby. The crowd followed suit.
Other notable developments in Grand’s latest are Spencer Hamilton bringing his two signature moves to Columbus Park, and the QS Spot Desk being wrong about people needing Bondo to skate the one surviving bank under the 125th Street 1 train ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Features Spencer Hamilton, Nick Ferro, Dana Ericson, Connor Champion, Kevin Tierney and Brian Delaney. J.P. Blair on da lens.
Alltimers is the first of 500 skate crews that spent January in Barcelona to release a proper video of their trip. As reported on QS earlier, it rained for over half the time that the full squad was in town, which sent The 2016 Skateboarder You’d Be Most O.K. With Your Daughter Dating and his friends back to the poutine pastures of Canada with only a few clips for the final video. Everyone had a good time though :)
As a bonus, we compiled all of @dutchmasterdelaney’s Instagram videos from the trip into one convenient clip. Give him a follow because every IG video that man makes is truly a work of art. Favorite editor in skateboarding right now.
Couldn’t upload it to YouTube because Travis Scott is a cop.
