RASCAL is the first full-length video from our friends at Andrew Skateshop down in Miami. (Yes, three parts and two montages is definitely a full-length in 2022.)
Filmed and put together by Andrew videographer Justin Stout, this one’s got an intro part from Josh Wolff + parts from Elijah Odom (2nd Elijah part in three months!) and Rezza Honarvar, the two dudes who co-starred in “Yastle” from spring 2021. Between all that is Chris Morgan and a bunch of Andrew friends + a lil’ Joel Meinholz section full of familiar faces.
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.)

The curved median ledge on Canal, just one block east of the Hudson River, has been one of those “why is this waxed?” mysteries for years. Everyone had always assumed BMXers or rollerbladers, and while that may have been the case for past years, Zak Anders (from RESPECTFULLY) lipslid it in his new “COW BOY” part, putting the first known skate footage of it to record. Appropriate that it would be across the street from what is still one of the most fucked New York clips that Brandon Westgate ever logged.
Peak-era Brian Brown was truly a magic talent on a skateboard. Joe Cups dropped an extended footy tape of his from 2004, a lot of which was in Vicious Cycle, but a lot of which wasn’t 😉 (The reigning S.O.T.Y. cited that part as one of his reasons for wanting to move out east…)
It feels like ~*literally*~ yesterday that people would come up to you asking, “Is your name Andrew? No? So why does your shirt say Andrew?! Ahahaha!”
But no. It has been four years. Jimmy Butler carried the Heat to the NBA Finals in the time since Andrew’s inaugural video, “Landfall,” back when the shop first opened in spring 2017.
It was in Miami earlier this year that we first heard the phrase “coronavirus.” This was a January trip celebrating the impending birth of Pryce’s first child, so skateboarding was limited to “checking out the skatepark,” with priority otherwise placed on sitting around doing nothing all day, and hearing someone play “The Box” every four seconds, all night.
A couple things happened on earth between then and now.
