PTSD

Via Pat Stiener

Wait, so Ben Chadourne was Skater of the Year all along? Knew it! Sorry, Keith (and Mark.)

They began demolition on the East River Park Amphitheater last week :( Alligator Ledge is blocked off, but you know, it’s Alligator Ledge 🐊

Something …not good seems to be afoot at Blue Park.

A wild ender on Pyramid Ledges, Tribeca street crossing lines, and newfound FedEx choreography in Jasper Stieve’s incredible new “Visitors” part for Picture Show. Thought it was gonna be the Dua Lipa version of that song for half a sec 😝

The Broth boys out of New Orleans have a new edit out called “Haunted,” with an ender part from Philly Santosuosso.

This Magic Shmoment

Andre Claus by Tom Gorelik

Limosine [sic], the much speculated-on company born out of the exodus from 917 via much of the same roster (Logan, Cyrus, Max et al. + some new teamriders), released a five-minute teaser for their upcoming video ❤️

This one deserves way more burn on the skateboard media circuit: “blast!” by Vancouver-based videographer, Chance Swainson. Starts off with Dustin Henry and his brother, continues with a whole slate of new-gen Vancouver dudes, and has an awesome ender part from Tremaine Glasgow — with incredible #musicsupervision the whole way through. Can’t remember the last time I wanted someone to land a trick as bad as Tre’s boardslide on the wood fence.

Bump To Supply Chain

“I realized so many stories or moments that I’ve lived don’t have photos to accompany them. I wasn’t equipped, equipment-wise or mentally, to decide, ‘This moment is a photo,’ and I need to go out of my way to get it no matter what people think.” The Slam City Skates blog has an interview with French photographer, Benjamin Deberdt, about coming to New York to shoot photos of Keenan, Huf and the Cardona brothers in the nineties. (He shot the above Huf photo.)

Added Vu Skateshop’s “Lyric” video — filmed entirely at the Lyric Monument in Baltimore — to the QS One-Spot Part Map.

A Brief History of Andrew Allen’s Bank Spots

Intro & Interview by Farran Golding

It is convenient to think of Andrew Allen’s love of flatbanks as a post-Propeller phenomenon. However, winding back a decade reveals the bank to be as intrinsic to his output as a flannel shirt.

His onscreen career begins in 2007 with 522 On The 411, a Krooked/DLX-themed installment and one of the video magazine’s final. We open to A.A. surfing through a schoolyard, calmly hitting a Lockwood-style bank-to-bench before hopping a handrail switch, landing into a sizeable bank. Prevent This Tragedy came a few years later, and with it, the “breakout part” status earned by the first clip alone.

Four Billion Skaters

Photo by Dave Smith 📷

Unsolicited reminder for everybody to get reacquainted with the story of Fred Gall saving the Cambodian monks from a burning building. Shit deserves a 30 For 30.

Tristan Mershon, creator of the Fool’s Gold video from this past May, has a quick new check-in edit called “Almost There.” First time that garage on Crosby and Houston has popped up in an edit for a while ;) Classic spot from simpler times.

“We doin’ shit! We’ve always been doing shit, only now it’s being recognized.” Skateism has a very sick interview with Jaime Reyes.
