The elusive Geo Moya sighting + a Leo Heinert Pyramid Ledges banger in the new promo for Rodney Torres’ Torro Skateboards brand.
“Money flies.” Felipe Munhoz is the latest subject of Skate Jawn‘s “$100 Chill” feature, shot in the waning days of the O.G. Tompkins flat. He makes everything look way too easy.
Melodi has a quick new New York edit featuring Quinn Batley, Alan Bell, and Kyler Garrison. (Did you hear the barricades are gone at the East Broadway and Division manny pad?)
Frog Skateboards shared an extended 10+ minute raw reel of Chris Milic’s footage from Daniel Dent’s 2020 video, With The Apple.
Love when videos from younger crews go in on midtown spots. “Cockeyed” by Jack Held is a new video mainly filmed in New York with a Miami clip here and there. Back tail down the U.N. hubba and back lip down the tall-ass World Trade rail were crazy.
The YouTuber formerly known as Juicy Elbowz (but currently known as Jesse Alba) dropped a watermarked masterpiece of iPhone footage featuring himself and other Frogian acolytes.
“Before I ever started skateboarding, I played Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. I remember doing wallrides on the game and thinking it was just impossible like it was something only possible in the game.” Heckride interviewed Akwasí Owusu. (Usually when someone has an interview with QS scheduled and it’s timed so close to another one the person just had come out, we fall back. Shout out to Heckride for mentioning the Village Psychic one upfront, and using it to begin the interview altogether. The two came out nothing alike, so shout out to them for that, too ❤️)
Catch the Hardbody crew on I-95 this week 💨
This is probably four clips shy of being a capital-P *part*, but our dude and Bunt Jam sharpshooter, Rezza Honarvar, has a new one for Miami’s Andrew Skateshop. Still surreal seeing tricks go down on that CBS ledge in 2023. Loved the fakie ollie, too 💪
Dustin Henry now rides for Frog. If you know anything about Dustin Henry’s extensive sponsor history, you know that it had to happen. Frog dropped a lil’ welcome video, but the real heavy hitter clips are in that Vans video Shari White has on the way…
Spezzatura and squad have a new Milan scene video out: Panorama 2.

“h” is a new, eighteen-minute homie video by Blaine Williams that’s mainly filmed in New York, with a sick part from Aidan Spencer to close it out. The fact the Polish Park planter-side ledges have endured for so long despite having three-feet of landing space is reason enough to never give up on your dreams ❤️
Casper Brooker has a great interview over on the Angel & Z podcast.
“So it was a little bit of everything: disappointment in myself, a little bit of wanting to try something new, and a lot of not thinking about it.” Spanky speaks about reinventing the way he skates and approaches video parts in the latest installment of Village Psychic + Ian Browning’s “Rules of Skateboarding” series. Spanky was also a recent guest on the How Long Gone podcast.

Chris “Mango” Milic has been in our hearts and minds for a long time. He has been a steady flow of fun skateboarding since his big break on Slap Magazine’s skateboard reality TV innovator, One in A Million. We may be familiar with the ensuing innovative video parts or Frog — but who really is Chris and what really is Frog? Turns out, no one’s ever really sat him down to ask.
