Do you have $99,000 lying around? Want to own a skatepark [a lil’ over an hour from the city]? Peekskill’s 2nd Nature park is for sale. No cybermonday promo code for that though ;)
The promo for the upcoming Late Nite Stars full-length video went live last week. (Yes, a Trung sighting is included.)
Shari White made a new 11-minute edit called “Gleek / Blueberries,” featuring a solid chunk of Dustin Henry footage + appearances from Una, Breana, Nelly, Stafhon, Shealy, Chandler Burton and a mini curtains section from Evan Wasser.
Catch the Hardbody crew on I-95 this week 💨
This is probably four clips shy of being a capital-P *part*, but our dude and Bunt Jam sharpshooter, Rezza Honarvar, has a new one for Miami’s Andrew Skateshop. Still surreal seeing tricks go down on that CBS ledge in 2023. Loved the fakie ollie, too 💪
Dustin Henry now rides for Frog. If you know anything about Dustin Henry’s extensive sponsor history, you know that it had to happen. Frog dropped a lil’ welcome video, but the real heavy hitter clips are in that Vans video Shari White has on the way…
Spezzatura and squad have a new Milan scene video out: Panorama 2.
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.)

In case you’ve been under a rock since last Monday, Neema Joorabachi’s Til It’s Gone video is online in full.
“Oh, I definitely wasn’t cool enough for Zoo York back then. I was just some weirdo out on Long Island.” Long Islander, Frank Gerwer, is the latest to get Chromeballed. Frank’s Number Nine part from 1995 is a great lil’ time capsule.
Jenn Soto and Mariah Duran share the screen in a Hi-8 trip to New York edit for Mess Skate Mag.
Here is a rundown of skate spots located at landmarks named after Martin Luther King Jr. — though the most famous is the ledge spot in Miami and that got omitted. (Also! The benches have been knobbed for a decade-plus, but MLK High School on 66th and Amsterdam has the janky runway 13 that got tre flip’d in The HSS Video.)
“You trying to skate?
“Where you going?”
“We’re going to ConEd.”
“Nah, I’m good.”
👆 This actually sounds like 90% of the conversations ever had about Con-Ed Banks. Congrats to Max Palmer for his Best Special Effects Oscar nomination, and to Max Hull for his Best Director nod!
