“Mired in gloom, to whom to look to for hope? A swaggering, bearded and sometimes-shirtless Frenchman beckons, modeling responsible social distancing behaviors from within a picturesque seaside flat. Lucas Puig is the COVID-19 therapeutic the world needs to see through these dark, blurring-together days.” Boil the Ocean throws Lucas Puig’s name in the hat for S.O.T.Q. — Skater of the Quarantine. And after that Biarritz edit, we are inclined to agree ♥
You’re about to think you’re reading a 2014 Monday Links update: “Buzzcam 01” is a new Johnny Wilson video blog. We LOVE YouTube Johnny. Mostly filmed around the Vans park, with some street clips at the end.
Zach Baker put together a new edit featuring E.T. and E.J. for when she tells you that you’re too old to be listening to YNW Melly.
“NENGAJO” is a fun five-minute New Years VX montage via a bunch of dudes from Japan in New York, with some cameos mixed in between ♥
After celebrating our seventh anniversary this past Wednesday, we present you with an unprecedented development in Quartersnacks’ history — a five-minute clip entirely set in Los Angeles, California. We don’t plan on launching an indoor T.F. that causes us to become afraid of the sun, joining any cults, or living off a diet of alfalfa sprouts and plates of mashed yeast anytime soon, but who knows. Below is the entire #stupidbitch2012 tour in video form. Here’s the photo post in case you missed it. Thanks to Joe Cups and Josh Velez for for their filming contributions.
Features Mike Gigliotti with his last appearance in a QS clip as a civilian, Aiden, Lui Elliot, a lot of dancing idiots, Charles Lamb, Tino Razo, some shitty cab drivers, Josh Velez, Baker landings, Javier Nunez, Andrew Brophy, and some more bad cab drivers. (L.A. has an epidemic of insanely awful cab drivers — we were staying on California Avenue and one of the cab drivers asked how to spell “California” while he was typing it into his GPS.) Have a good weekend.
To everyone’s disappointment, the following video clip does not contain footage of Geo Moya landing the above trick. More importantly, did you wish Moya happy birthday yesterday?
Below is a clip we put together featuring the team from Akira Mowatt’s company, After Midnight New York — not to be confused with the free newspapers. It has a high concentration of hood legends, in addition to music supervision from the era when Harlem ruled the summer (AKA before the Ed Hardy tees.) Features Quim Cardona, Joseph Delgado, Geo Moya, Charles Lamb, John Wisdom, Leo Heinert, Rob Campbell, Akira Mowatt, Masashi Shiroma, Dakota Segree, and Ariel Perl.
Filmed by Gosh Goto.
“Best west coast noseslide is Muska. Best east coast noseslide is Moya. Best half cab noseslide is also Moya.” — The Worst Dude These Days
The 2000s summarized in one, technology encompassing shoebox — physical CD mixtapes, 3.5″ harddrives, and a grip of unmarked Mini DV tapes.
This site has never been about technological allegiances, but if the more candid, less-ambitious skateboard endeavors that make their way to this website can be shot on either of these two devices, as opposed to something that contributes to the rising need for Mini-DV-containing shoebox storage, so be it. Quartersnacks is filmed largely on a damn Canon Mini DV camera, so if you’re looking for video quality, you’ve been coming to the wrong place for quite some time. That being said, this clip has all the expected hallmarks of a digi-cam clips: skateparks, heads being cut off, feet being cut off, 12th & A, annoying security guards asking why you’re trying to put them on YouTube (you know everyone is on the lookout for the next Bush video), skating the suburbs and crashing into Lexuses, and an ensemble of other don’t-take-it-too-seriously-isms.
This clip was filmed by Josh Velez. Features Yaje Popson, Emilio, Corey Rubin, Alex, Matthew Mooney, Charles Lamb, Galen Dekemper, Josh Velez, DJ Roctakon, Pryce Holmes, Ty Lyons, Alex Mosley, Andre Page, and Ritch Swain.
