Leo Heinert’s Blitz Jam series hosted an impromptu skate jam at Flushing last week, and a bunch of wild shit went down. Really sick seeing people huck down the six, which feels like it hasn’t seen a ton of action since they renovated it over COVID. Brandon has got to go back for that 360 flip — that was wild.
Hypebeast paid a visit to Carpet Company HQ in Baltimore, and came back with a video exploring the two brothers’ creative and production process.
Soo Saxton is back with Gabe Shah for another six minute part filmed entirely in New York. You can feel the cold through the screen in some of those clips.
Human beings are infatuated with ways to measure their endurance: Usain Bolt’s 100-meter dash, Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game, 76 hot dogs in ten minutes, etc.
In ledge skating, this measuring stick is holding a given trick over a long ledge. If it stands to reason that everyone’s first time doing anything on a ledge is a quick grind off the end, then holding it the distance is the true form of mastery.
For this purpose — in New York, at least — The Grate™ is a unit of measure.
Have you been getting really good at backside tailslides? There is no doubt that one of your idiot friends will ask, “D’ya think you could do it over the grate?”

Jason Byoun made a recap edit of the Hardbody trip to L.A. Lots of food pics. Hard to watch and not get hungry 🌯
Torn to shit by weather and use, bondo’d back to functionality, and still standing — the Trenton Banks have to be one of the longest-standing O.G. New Jersey spots at this point. Phat House dropped a “10 Years of Trenton Banks” covering a greatest hits of their crew’s footage at the spot, and including a young Ishod Wair doing something obviously insane.
Simple Magic released an updated version of its Skaters With Glasses Power Ranking, which can’t resist the easy puns like “he may need glasses, but [Diego] Todd’s vision is 20/20 when it comes to finding and figuring out interesting, unassuming, and downright dangerous skate spots.”
