Groeth Is Coming

Pyramid Ledges extension challenge summer 2k19.

Sign + share the petition to keep synthetic turf off the Tompkins flat.

The Stingwater video is on the way. Pretty excited because Daniel has a way of capturing Antonio’s magic unlike anyone else.

Obvs no shade to anyone else out there pointing lenses at Antonio intended! “Vue” by Stephen Spilker is a rad L.A. montage that also has a good bit of clips from 2018’s GRoER of the Year. Shout out to everyone out there creating plain, old fashioned montages. Should probably start working on a QS one right about now…

Gang Corp put out a sick five-minute summer edit. (The one line into the parking garage got me thinking about if anyone would ever do an all-parking garage montage, kinda how there was the all-subway one from Spirit Quest. So many insane spots in those.)

Can We Have A Pool Dad?

“I would be on tour with all these guys and that late 90s San Diego, hip-hop style of culture was ruling at the time. And I was just a kid from Northern California who liked My Bloody Valentine.” There’s a really nice interview with Jerry Hsu about life after sponsors in …GQ? Jk, Noah knows what he’s doing ♥

Dylan Holderness put together a rad ten-minute video from ten days in Puerto Rico. Shout out to having wild horses chilling in the background of city plazas. We went to that spot and didn’t see any damn horses!

The text is in German, but the dudes from Irregular skate mag put up a supplementary article to their “Summer Trip To New York” clip that was linked last Monday, and it includes a ton of really sick photos. Shout out to everyone going the extra mile in the #legacy #content realm. Tricks can be A.B.D. — but everyone’s story is different yaknow.

The fashion mags are onboard for the cause — Dazed ran an article about the cultural significance of the Tompkins asphalt, and Paper did the same. We cannot stress enough that this is so much bigger than skateboarding, and more about the community that this small patch of asphalt has cultivated. → Please sign and share the petition if you have yet to do so. Actually, if you read QS and haven’t signed it, please focus your board and computer. (And no, we haven’t heard an update back from Parks yet, but are hoping for some news this week.)

Waka Flocka Lockout

Unable to continue his DuFlockaRant and Lebron Flocka James series due to NBA labor negotiations, Waka Flocka Flame is expected to release mixtapes honoring key NBPA figureheads. Billy Flocka Hunter will be the first release.

Three-minute long Bronze promo for Phil Rodriguez, set to the sounds of Mystic Stlyez-era Three 6 Mafia revisionist, Spaceghostpurp. Phil is the man best known for his inspirational work in the Caviar video. Until there is a team with both Mike Carroll and Rob Campbell on it, Bronze will remain to be the best team in skateboarding.

Miles Marquez attributed his reason for quitting skateboarding to watching Christian Willis skate in real life. (This is when the “I’m going to buy a bottle of Jack and drink it until I no longer care that I suck at skating” quote was uttered.) Here is a new part from Christian Willis. Hopefully, it has an adverse effect on you, and you don’t quit skateboarding.

Robbie Gangemi and Gino Iannucci were both simultaneously at 12th & A on Saturday. Photo by Eli Reed via Instagram.

Nolan Lee noticed that there was a rail running parallel to the Forbidden Banks, and managed to somehow ollie over it. In other Forbidden Banks news, there’s a guy next door who flashes a PBA pin in his wallet as if it was a badge, thinking people will be dumb enough to mistake him for a cop.

Thugs Vs Skateboarders At A Skatepark & Gun Shots Went Off!” The intelligent discussion in the comments of this video must be seen to be believed.

Apparently, there is a skatepark in Brower Park (the Crown Heights spot mentioned last week), which has received minimal coverage. This is the only picture of it that came up after an online search. Looks like a bunch of concrete boxes, but could be decent if you live in the area.

“David Stern. Damn, David Stern. Got to teach you about the ghetto, some things you should learn.” — Ron Artest

It’s beautiful outside. You should probably go skate.

Quote of the Week: “I’m just glad none of us left with pinkeye.” — The Legendary Moya, referring to a wild night at a gentlemen’s cabaret
