Plazacation: Ibiza

Via @whatisnewyork

Brianna Delaney and Lee Madden dropped on a new part that also chronicles her transition and journey from the past few years ❤️ Features plenty of stunning lines and some of the best back tails in the biz.

Going to echo the resoundingly unanimous praise about Free x Memory Screen’s Ray Barbee remix/tribute/epic. Immune to trends, utterly timeless, and a shoo-in for one of the coolest skateboarders of all-time — there will never be another Ray Barbee. It was also a reminder to revisit the time Genny interviewed him for QS.

Wish It Were Sunday

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!

This Year Halloween Fell On A…

Sorry, sometimes the headline is too obvious to resist 💋

WOW2G is a new 22-minute video by Eighty Twenty, Hell World, and the Travel Skateshop family. Half-New York, half-Jersey spots. Aron Moloney (first full part) and Derek Thor (second-to-last part) both crush it. The pinches on those switch front crooked grinds!

Also a decent dose of Jersey City footy in Neema Joorabchi’s new B-roll montage.

If you haven’t seen Fred Gall’s “Out There” on Thrasher, it fucking rules. Make yourself a nice sandwich and throw on his Bobshirt interview from 2018 afterwards.

The Post profiled Alexis Sablone.

The crew behind The Upper West Side Curb Club is holding a contest at the Riverside Park curb this Saturday, July 10. Video teaser here.

Old Spots, New Bondo, Same Friends

Is there any chance you haven’t seen Tenzin’s nollie bigspin heelflip yet? Top 3 Tompkins trick all-time, no hyperbole. Don’t even know what the other two are, just that this is definitely in there ♥

Skate Like A Girl is hosting a silent auction fundraiser that you should definitely support. Bid on everything from #hype sneakers to gear from local brands, with all proceeds going to a great cause.

Who thought an opener part to that Weeknd song from all the memes could hit this hard? Pete Spooner’s New York / Minneapolis / Los Angeles -based Various Artists video extols the synergy of working for an airline while making skate videos on the side, and is now playing up on Free in full. (They’re big fans of Zach Moore’s recent comedy work as well.) Ender part from Jeremy Murray is fire.
