In many ways, 2022 was a benchmark year where so many definitive things turned ten. Everything from Labor to Tinder to Bronze to Jenkem to Bill’s first-ever edit with Tyshawn for Supreme have been with us for a decade now.
Things keep changing, time keeps flying, and we’re back to keep a lil’ inventory of it all.
[Ed. note — Wish Young Nudy dropped “My Gang” in late May. Any video that begins with the boys cutting their pants into shorts and hitting Biscayne Bay on jetskis is a bonafide summer anthem. Leaving this headliner as a tribute to the summer that could’ve been ❤️]

The world is a different place from the one in which I started this series a decade ago (not gonna go into all the ways here.) In my second summer of not drinking, I set out to find a new location to vibe out; the local bar wasn’t hitting like before.
So, I regularized my gym’s rooftop pool. For some reason, my gym has a pool on the roof in addition to the indoor lap facility. Although not as sick as those famous NYC rooftop hotel pools, it’s still pretty dope. Most importantly, the ratio at any given time of day is roughly the opposite of the one at your average skate function.

If you have the means, please donate to this GoFundMe for Tristan Mershon, Nate Grzechowiak and Josh Paynter, whose Bushwick apartment and possessions were lost to a house fire two weeks ago.
There’s no way you haven’t seen the new Bronze video yet, right?
There’s def an official Thrasher edit incoming, but Zubr ripped and combined everyone’s IG stories of Tyshawn’s Can Jam at Blue Park this past Saturday into a single video. Shout out to the legend who continues to show up to all the skate events and films with his laptop.
Figured it was due time, and that the city’s three dozen skateparks have evolved past a point of us needing to point some eager tourists towards the direction of the B.Q.E. lot. Updated the QS spot book for the first time in ~two years, mainly to acknowledge the fact that, yes, curbs are formal *spots* now. Removed a handful of outdated ones (yes, the B.Q.E. lot #lol), too. If you live here or visit often, nothing to see here.
The Bronze dudes return to the Polish Park ledges that they made famous in earlier videos with some new faces + Shaun Paul goes off + Will Marshall hops over and back on the furthest possible New York spot + Josh Wilson seals it with with a 10/10 performance in Bronze x DC Shoes’ “WHAT IF GOD SAID” video.

Could not stop watching this video. Nah, it’s not a skate clip.
Ville has been more than few friends’ favorite skater for a minute now. This 20-minute compilation of loosies should be what you watch if you’re going skating today ❤️
Somebody compiled a half-hour of Instagram clips from all the Bronze dudes.
The New Orleans section from last year’s Skate Jawn video is a lot of fun.
