If you were too young to have experienced the real-time reign of the skaters most synonymous with the nineties — but had already clocked your 10,000 hours of watching skate videos by the time, say, Jake Johnson hit the scene — there’s a decent chance you carry a vivid memory of first seeing Zered in a video (especially if you grew up in the northeast.)
Skateboard endeavors moved northward towards CBS, which was heavily featured in John’s Vid (a video that simultaneously feels like it came out three months ago and three years ago), until that spot got knobbed.
It turns out that the real party was at the Museum all along — a spot that 4Ply learned was the most frequent #QSTOP10-featured New York spot in 2020. Considering there has been a generation (two?) of skateboarders who have not experienced a period of the Museum being a go, it’s no wonder everyone flocked there to take advantage of the glitch.
Paul Young logged some heavy hours there this past spring and summer, and came back with this edit featuring Mark Humienik, Joe Russo, Nick Ferro, Vin Perso, Joseph Delgado, German Nieves, Ben Tenner, Myles Underwood, Dana Ericson and Dick Rizzo.
Ben Kadow has a new Hockey part filmed pretty much entirely in the city, on insane spots that seldom register as “spots” to us normies, e.g. the 5050 bench ollie at Central Park, the perpendicular drop in boardslide, et al.
Some of you might remember the “EGG” edit that graced the homepage of this website back in November of last year, which was an Orchard Skateshop production showcasing the new generation of talent coming of age at Boston’s premier ledge spot.
“Club Dragon” is the latest from that crew — except instead of a one-spot outing, the tricks honed at Eggs also make their way to an ensemble of New York City ledge spots and greater Boston locations that have become increasingly a go in the COVID age of lower security.

Just as Warren Buffett off-loaded his shares in airlines given the foreseeable future of travel, skate companies have began doing the same with their stockades of footage from pre-COVID19 trips. Any clips from far-off lands coming out once we hit the dog days of the pandemic are bound to be dated by default — like, anyone who switched their pants game up in quarantine is gonna have a tough time convincing the skateboarding public that their Euro footage wearing last year’s silhouettes is current ;)
