It’s cold out there. First posts of…2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017.
Here’s a gentle reminder to worry a bit less about ascending in skateboarding’s paid elite this year, and to save some money to travel with your friends to some far-off skate spots and simply have a good time ♥
Pretty stoked to start 2018 off with a whole roster of local videos…
It got uploaded just after last weeks links post went live, but Goodily is a new full-length from Diego Garcia featuring parts from Solomon, Yaje, Pat Hoblin, Jason Byoun, and basically all the people who skate more than you do.
“Banister” is the new ten-minute mini vid from Gang Corp, to which they already uploaded a a half-hour raw files clip of outtakes and kick-outs.
Angel Fonseca and the Bronx crew have a new one called “Money Orders Bill$ 2.”
Lurkers 3 is back online after a brief hiatus as well.
Here’s a fun new 2017 Bobby De Keyzer Instagram compilation.
Max Hull with some photos of a trip to a 17-degree pool party.
Krooked has a trip to New York raw clip over on the Thrasher site, from what looks like when they were filming for LSD.
Memory Screen compiled what is essentially a “best of pre-2010s skateboarding history” montage to the long version of 411‘s theme song to get you hyped. Leaving out S.J’s front 180 switch crook at J. Kwon is a tad bit preposterous though.
Still a good bit of end-of-the-year stuff floating around on the slim chance that you didn’t have enough of 2017…
Boil the Ocean with more 2017 video part life, and Cafe Creme Blog also has its own list of 2017’s best video parts.
Theories has a ten list for 2017’s “Underground S.O.T.Y.”
Ripped Laces runs down the ten best skate shoes of 2017 (“the bootie, if you’re not used to it, takes a few hours to adjust to”), and the 25 best board graphics of 2017.
It’s 2 degrees outside for the foreseeable future, but we’re getting Sremmlife 3 this month to give us strength. At least you’re not in Montreal.
QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Porzingis is obviously close (no playoffs…yet, maybe 2025), but Tyson Chandler is still the best Knicks player of the current millennium. Happy to see him up to his old tricks in a warmer climate.
