Looks Pretty Dope

Congrats to E.T. on going pro 🍸 Board available on the Alltimers site nowPhoto by Anthony Asfour.

Added Kevin Braun’s “Pier 7” part + Casper Brooker’s “Cathedral” part filmed entirely at Southbank (it’s actually the fourth inclusion to be filmed entirely at SB) to the Quartersnacks One-Spot Part Map, which is slowly creeping its way to 100 spots :)

There is absolutely no way you haven’t already caught these, right? Jamal Smith skates to his own music and returns to the Ithaca Park that made him a superstar in his new Adidas part (that heelflip front blunt!) + Jahmir Brown pays homage to Javier Nuñez’s front crook off the Courthouse Drop in his new DC part.

Came To Majorca For Nothing

Photo by E.J.

Man, 8:15 might be long for a trip edit in our era of torched attention spans — but, hear me out — the majority of the crew from the Sicily trip spent the past two years cooped up stateside. And, AND, AND — the first time we made it out to Europe, Majorca was kind enough to bless us with no rain for ten days straight… we came back with a fuckin’ 30+ minute raw timeline 😲

Also, Justin and Nick went pro since that last trip, and pros stack 😈

Some of that 30+ minutes is chilling with horses, some of it was goofing around in an out-of-season water park, and all of it was at spots that Brady had been to throughout his ten times (seriously, ten) of visiting Majorca since the Blueprint days. Wrote a more extensive thing about it in the current issue of Free, which they’ll put online eventually ;)

Features Nick Michel, Justin Henry, Etienne Gagne, Diego Todd, Ben Blundell and Danny Brady. Supported by Vans.

Etienne Gagne — E.T. For Nothing

Videos & Words by Zach Baker

Making this only sucked when we took it seriously. I mean, I guess we took it as seriously as the devices, times, and quality of filmer called for. We were in New York, it was shitty out, and the best thing to do in the winter here is hang out in warm dark bars with the windows all foggy.

We couldn’t do that.

We hung out in some social distance huts a couple times. Don’t know if you’ve had the chance to eat a tuna melt with a knife and fork inside of a fort / snowbank with mittens on and numb toes in the dark at 4:45 in the afternoon — but it sucks ass. Our routine was drive around and skate horseshit when there wasn’t snow on the ground. Then, we’d usually get takeout, and eat it in the car, then sit in the parked car drinking beer for sometimes really long times.

Alltimers’ ‘E.T. & Dustin’ Video Is Now Live

Thrasher just posted up the first fullish Alltimers video in a minute — yes, a part’s worth of footage from two skaters, plus a bunch of cameos is fullish by 2021 standards. It bounces back and forth between Europe, both coasts, and clips from extended stays at home, stringing together the old world of travel-friendly skateboarding with today’s for one last hurrah: “Remember when it was like this?”

It’s Not Bro Time It’s Showtime

Everything is a YouTube link this week, so if you’re showing up here to get your read on, you’re better off taking your ass to the library ;)

Antics is a sick 18-minute New Jersey video by Hugh O’Hare, featuring a mix of homies from Branded and Travel Skateshops. Lots of time put in at the Newark Peach Ledges and Big Screen Plaza (still boarded off unchanged, btw.) Shout out to anyone grinding the edge of a glass pane. Shout out to the drop-in at Museum of Natural History (those security guards sure have had an interesting pandemic….) Shout out to Anthony Gordon’s part and front crook fakie.

It is *so hard* to show off your great skate hair in a winter edit. 80% of the footy in Josh Payner’s new winter video blog is in beanies, hoodies and gloves, so the skating itself is left to do the talking :) Also, these edits are awesome and inspiring. Here’s the first one.
