Two Weekends Later… Brian Reid’s Grand Collection Part

Eggs’ Brian Reid has a new part for Grand Collection out today. Between the front crook and immediate curve-out on the White Hubba currently undergoing its third (fourth?) post-deknob renaissance, the nonchalant no-push lines at Museum of Natural History + Lenox, and a kickflip back noseblunt that most would be ok with retiring on, the guy really continues his string of imprinting tricks in your mind with every video appearance.

Word is that this took two weekends to film, and it’s more eventful than what many could do in twice the runtime. Excited to see what else is headed our way. Imagine three (!) weekends of this! ;) ♥

Guest appearance from Danny Dipalo. Filmed and edited by J.P. Blair With The Hair.

Triple Kink

The new Blue Couch edit is their best one yet — a lot of which is just filmed in the vicinity of the 125th Street Fairway? Never realized those inch-high curbs at Grants Tomb were a doppelgänger for the London ones Tom Knox, Mike Arnold and them always skate.

Krux has a new edit with Arin, Marbie, Cooper, Kristin Ebeling, Ryan Lay, and others hitting Blue Park, Alligator, and all the spots under the Kosciuszko.

The Creed Video” is filmed around New York, Richmond and Charlotte. These sort of homie videos have a special charm ♥ Sincerely smiled at the turnaround after the 5-0 180.

The only constant is change or some shit like that ;)

So much nineties New York footage on the #repost circuit is us re-mining R.B. Umali’s amazing archive over and over that it’s a shock to see something from then that you haven’t seen before. Alex Corporan started going through all his old tapes, and put together a montage as a preview for a Revisted-esque project he’s working on.

Grand Collection has a short commercial with Connor Champion on the occasion of their Umbro collaboration — loosely inspired by the DC Kalis commercial that played on TV twenty years ago. (Filmed in New York! Not Philly!)

Who Got The Link?

“That has been my wallet since I got it from Alien in 1994.” If you are under the age of 25, Fred Gall’s wallet is older than you, as per the TWS “Skatehoarders” video where he runs through his board collection. Also a reminder that Freddy’s Bobshirt interview is still one of the best anthologies of skate storytelling from the past decade.

Sometimes, a good vibe is all you need :) “Ceelo Champs in the Field” is a really rad 13-minute video via a bunch of dudes out of Raleigh, North Carolina. It’s comforting to know that these types of close-knit friends videos will always exist (and have always existed) for as long as skateboarding does. There’s a decent bit of New York footage, too.

“Third Worst Video” is a fun edit by Lloyd Richards, filmed almost entirely in the city, and is def not the third worst video. Sk8rs ♥ that Tweet song.

Not a ton of New York news this past week…

4 Cities, 100 Nuggets” is a mini video featuring some Canadian dudes (…I think?) doing a two-week road trip through North Carolina, Philly, New York, and Boston. That back noseblunt bigspin at Baldi really came out of left field + good to see people coming up victorious over the speed bumps at the recently-knobbed plaza on 110th and 8th (which is sure to be utilized by absolutely nobody now, considering it’s in the middle of the street, with no shade, and across from a 840-acre park full of trees…)

Thoroughly enjoyed this… a lot: Kris Brown in the Philadelphia-based, A Regular Ass Video by DJ Traceman.

“It’s not a boot-camp for the Olympics.” “No, it’s a boot-camp for life.” Given the stature of its alumni, you likely know of its existence, but you probably don’t know much about the skateboarding high school in Mälmo, Sweden. Skateism has a full interview about Bryggeriet, and how’s its not exactly what you would expect.

Brian Delaney and a few others skate some Boston classics in a collab clip between Grand and Orchard Skate Shop. (Is that the first time somebody has backside 360 kickflipped a trashcan on flat?)
