How About Those Orange Shorts — An Interview With Evan Wasser

📝 Intro + Interview by Adam Abada

If you’re born right into the middle of the hotbed of skateboard industry and history, I could forgive you if you turn away from it all. Instead, Culver City, Los Angeles County native Evan Wasser managed to live alongside it, receiving a skate education by osmosis that’s in his bones rather than his head. At only 23-years-old, he’s been skating as long as I have. He turned heads last year with his shared Frog part and has popped up in a bunch of in-the-moment New York edits, so we wanted to get him on the record.

‘Let’s Film A Montage’

No way there is a single person who checks this website and hasn’t seen the Tyshawn part yet, correct? Photo above by Dan Zaslavsky 📷

“Trust me, I tried to shoot it without getting down there.” New York magazine’s real-estate publication, Curbed, interviewed Atiba for a feature about Tyshawn’s Thrasher cover kickflip. (Though, based on some more precise intel, the gap definitely seems to be more than nine feet as outlined in the above article.)

Cooper Winterson’s new video, The Sex Emo Promo is half filmed around the vicinity of Cadman Plaza, and includes appearances from Nelly Morville, Evan Wasser, and a bunch more.

Speaking of Wasser, him and Nick Michel’s Frog for Thunder Trucks part by Daniel Dent is beautiful.

Big news: the Dunk is out. We can stop clogging your social feeds now.

Have you heard the other big news? Everybody’s favorite skateboarder — yes, Keith Denley — is pro! At risk of not coming off absolutely insane promoting two collabs in the same week (we never planned for things to pan out that way, but c’est la vie), we took pause on pushing the new Hopps x Quartersnacks stuff, but it’s arriving at all Hopps accounts now. We’ll have it on our webstore soon. Whether Keith ends up filming *that part* remains to be seen, but in the eternal words of Mr. Hjalte Halberg: “You Americans are too serious about the pro board shit, in Europe you just turn the homie pro. Fuck it! It’s not about being ‘pro’ at skating. If you are a sick character, you should be pro!”

WEALTH is a new 17-minute video by Steve Lancello filmed all throughout the northeast, with a fire Neil Herrick part at the end. Is that the first footy of someone connecting a trick over the concrete divider on that that side street off Flatbush? Feels like an Aaron Herrington spot too, but maybe misremembering.
