Promaster — Limosine Skateboards, 2022

Limosine Skateboards just dropped their first piece of #longform #content since the inaugural Paymaster video from last holiday season (obvs a favorite for 2022* year-end accolades on account of the timing, a la John’s Vid last year.) It includes plenty of fanfare for those who’ve been following these dudes’ path to running their own company: at least a face-shot of everyone you’d expect in a late-period Johnny Wilson HD video blog (Mitchell!), Max Palmer finding a way to pinch a front crook on a ledge that extends two-inches from a wall, and Cyrus bringing this one out of a skatepark and into the streets.

But the real stars are Nelly Morville — Paymaster‘s breakout part who has a whole new one here — and the newly pro Hugo Boserup rocking the best 90s bowl cut since Eric Lloyd.

Expensive Navy

This is the last week it gets dark before 7 P.M. 🤞

Shadow is a full-length Long Island scene video (though obviously much of it is filmed in the city) by David Rind. Last two parts are fire, though you may have caught the link for Max Rowlette’s section last week when Skate Jawn ran it.)

Not sure there has been a Johnny Wilson trip edit since that “Roadtrip” one way way back. Tom Knox, Nik Stain, Eric Koston, Louie Lopez, et al. in Texas with Miles Griptape, ICYMI. Love that this roster could come together for something as arbitrary as a griptape team trip, and have it feel like an actual homie edit ❤️

“If, when I was 15, somebody told me to stab someone and they’d give me this, I would’ve done it.” Greg Navarro — creator of The Upper West Side Curb Club — hung around …the Upper West Side with Eli Gesner to get a breakdown of the neighborhood’s landmark spots for a new Jenkem video series called “Neighborhoods.”

In 2021, Joey O’Brien won by 28 points. In 2020, Tom Knox won by a whopping 534 points. The inverse is true with full lengths. In 2020, Cons’ Seize the Seconds video won by just 18 points over FA’s Dancing On Thin Ice. In 2021, The Reuben won by a sizable 174 points.” 4Ply Mag, the official statisticians behind the QS Readers Poll, wrote a deep-dive on the methodology and breakdown of how the votes got tallied 📊

The Best Skate Videos & Parts of 2021 — QS Readers Poll Results

Ballot Count by 4Ply Magazine

The votes are in, the ballots are tallied, the blurbs by writer friends from the internet are written, and our annual exercise of trying to combat content fatigue and fried attention spans is live.

For anybody uninitiated: back in 2019, we asked QS visitors for the five parts and videos from the 2010s that they would bury in a capsule under the earth for future inhabitants to reference once all other evidence of skateboarding had been erased. In 2020, we adapted this concept to encapsulate one year. And here we are in 2021, with the results of the same excerise.

No commentary for the full-lengths or 20-11 ranked parts. Special thank you to all the writers that took the time to share some words about their favorites. (Lol that the order for the 4-1 writers is the same this year as last. Total coincidence.) Major shout out to Pete at 4Ply Magazine for compiling all the data.

If you are just joining us, this ranking was voted on by QS readers from November 29th to December 3rd.

It’s Only a Movie — Limosine Skateboards’ ‘Paymaster’ Video

Over the past year, those who traffick in skate rumors have been possessed by the question of where the roster of the 917 team would land. The lead rumor was that they all went off to start their own endeavor.

There are few videos held in as high esteem around the QS office as the first two 917 projects, so we are pleased to report that much of the line-up has stuck together — Logan behind the lens and edit included — to bring you Limosine Skateboards, and their first video, Paymaster. Nelly Morville, Santino Gagliarducci and Karim Callender are the new additions. (Stoked on there being a team with a Nelly and a Genny on it 😎)
