Favorite thing from this past week? This 45-second Vincent Touz mix that Johnny Wilson posted on IG.

Jake Kuzyk’s new one is called “Kick Back,” and is effectively a sequel to Courtesy, except this time for Spitfire instead of Vans. Features most of the Alltimers team, Chris Milic, Diego Todd, Nick Michel, and Jed Anderson. Dustin’s three-trick line at the brick bank in downtown Vancouver is fire.

R.I.P. Fall ’19 — We Barley Knew You

Spread via @geometricskateshop on IG

Quartersnacks for Spitfire Wheels arrives in stores today. We will not be carrying this in our webstore, but have a lot of fab regs QS stuff in there if you’re trying to support. Any shop with a Deluxe account near you should be a safe bet though ♥ (And for anyone asking, yes there are both hard wheels and cruiser: hard wheel is Formula Four 53mm 99du, and soft wheel is 54mm 80du.)

“We did crime to fund it basically.” File this one under: Had no idea how much I would love this interview when I first started skimming it. You’re probably familiar with @muckmouth the Instagram page, you might be familiar with Muckmouth the website, but you probably aren’t familiar with Muckmouth the Auckland-based skate magazine. Free has an incredible interview with Muckmouth founder, Alex Dyer, about his journey through three generations of skateboard media that is full of stories to make you laugh and sit at the edge of your seat. “Where the fuck is Callum?”

Skating to one of the ten best songs ever recorded by humans is bold, but whatever, the world is gonna end soon anyway ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Justin Grzechowiak’s part in the Buffalo, New York-based Remedy video is a good time.

Dying To Link

Village Psychic came through with a lovely Jawn Gardner remix, just as we revert back to mid 40-degree temperatures for this upcoming week :) Thanks for keeping us hyped in 2k18, John ♥

We were so naive to think that we could close the lid on 2018 while retaining the innocence of never hearing “Sicko Mode” in a “Summer Trip to New York” montage *facepalm* Jk, jk. The Chef boys from Milan came through in the eleventh hour and released a montage from their summer here.

Lukas Reed, the creator of this past summer’s all-Everson Art Museum video, “Mecca,” met up will Bill Strobeck on a cold day at Syracuse’s most famous skate spot to discuss his history with the plaza for a Bobshirt-esque video interview.

“E-Money” tracked down nearly five minutes of Will Marshall loosies for a remix. Wooooooooo!

New footage of Leo Heinert, Luis Tolentino, and the rest of the crew in “Crudo,” the raw footage promo for Rodney Torres’ company, Torro.

More feel-good moments: a one-minute 2018 recap via Chico Brenes.

Akira Mowatt, Charles Lamb, Robert Lim and some of the locals have a iPhone edit from their time in Shanghai. We were there for like a week and skated maybe half of these places? Place is as wild as everyone makes it out to be for spots.

Another one for the ever-increasing scroll of fun Upstate New York videos this year: “Tailgate” via Buffalo Dave.

Bronze dropped a quick edit of Nick Ferro leftovers from It’s Time.

New Era has a new commercial with the S.O.T.Y. and his dogs.

Some New York clips in the un-used footage reel from Pete Spooner’s Skating Is Easy video, which is premiering in Minneapolis later this week.

Jenkem asked skate shop owners about what we can do to keep them around for as long as possible.

On the minuscule chance that you missed it, Wade Desarmo, the World Champion of Skateboarding has a new full part for Grand Collection in which he’s looking solid as ever.

QS Sports Desk: John Wall playing like he doesn’t want to get traded to the Knicks and fade into obscurity in two years because of it.

All Snacks Not 1 Opinion

Photo by Colin Sussingham

Our webstore is now restocked with fall items. Available now in the U.S., Canada, Japan and Korea. Arriving to Europe and Australia this week. You can find a list of shops that carry QS garms on our stockists page. Thanks ♥

Here’s the video of the Alltimers team’s van trip through New England’s circuit of skateparks. If you didn’t think Dana Ericson could be in contention for MVP of a skatepark trip, then you were dead wrong ;)

Village Psychic did a quick interview with J.P. Blair about filming for the new Bronze 56k video, It’s Time.

“For longtime devotees of the Art Dump, SHT Sound and goldfish-toting retirement home scammers, it’s difficult to separate dudes’ seeming lack of enthusiasm for skating their own boards with the company’s at times painful evolution.” Boil the Oceans looks toward the future of Girl Skateboards on the announcement of their upcoming am-focused video, Doll.

Element did a Keith Harring collaboration and the only reason we’re telling you about it is because the accompanying video for it contains about a minute of new Brandon Westgate footage from the Banks.

This dude’s flip tricks are something else: watch Shawn Butler’s new 80% L.A. / 20% east coast part by Harry Bergenfield.

Big week for Chief Keef video parts, and a bad week for that antiquated tradition of keeping an unenthused stone face after you land your ender. Here’s another section from the Buffalo-based Jeb video. We have been claiming we’d drive to Albany to skate Empire State Plaza since before the summer, and now’s it’s probably too cold, huh?

Thrasher posted up the video for the Alltimers’ skate jam at Fat Kid Park.

Stop Fakin’ 3 is now online in full.

“Bryan saw this pool while landscaping at the house next door and somehow charmed the owner into letting us skate for two weekends. How he did this, I have no clue. Must have been just the right mix of 7-11 egg salad, and ’90s skate photos that gave him the confidence.”

Some of you will be triggered by the aesthetics, but the skateboarding in Romain Batard’s “Giddy” series is always unique, albeit in a fried way. Episode #9 is live.

Ignoring the fact that its objectively horrid to look at (not even talking as a skateboarder here…but what the hell is wrong with them renovating these parks in a way that makes it look like their budget was a $200 Home Depot gift card?), there are these weird slappy metal things at the park on Spring and Sixth Avenue now A.K.A. the old marble chessboard park.

Bad news: McNally Jackson is closing. Good news: They’re insisting that they will remain in the neighborhood. So excited for that corner to become a Chase bank :(

QS Spots Desk Play of the Week: The Trae Young game winner seems like it was the most unavoidable highlight of the preseason. Regular season starts Wednesday!

Quote of the Week: “They don’t play Drizzy in pubs man.” — Tiko re: whether he heard the Spanish Drake song in London

Happy early 10/17!

‘Core:’ A Nike SB & Quartersnacks Video by Johnny Wilson

All photography by Zach Malfa-Kowalski

Nike SB and Quartersnacks present “Core,” the new video by Johnny Wilson. The project depicts a week-long journey through Upstate New York, with stops in Albany, Syracuse, Ithaca, Rochester and Buffalo.

This was unequivocally the first skate trip in the history of skateboarding where not a single person complained. No “these spots suck,” no “let’s go somewhere else,” no “pull over to this Taco Bell.” Not even a request to stop at local D.I.Y. spots, as it was deemed that skating D.I.Y. without having contributed their construction is not as #core as a #bond with the #streets. Nobody even knew what a “skatepark” was. #core ;)

Features Bobby Worrest, Hjalte Halberg, Nick Boserio, Antonio Durao, Cyrus Bennett, Q.S.S.O.T.Y. Max Palmer and Andrew Wilson. Filmed and edited by Johnny Wilson. All trip photography by Zach Malfa-Kowalski.
