We went to this iconic chunk of New Jersey crust last summer, and somebody in the car was like, “I heard some Brazilian dude frontside flipped into this.” Didn’t doubt it, because, you know — Brazilian skaters — but wow. The footage dropped in Retta Skateshop’s Atemporal video that went live on Free last week. It’s in Rafael Gomes’ incredible closer part, which includes an ender at another famous nearby Jersey bank. *Prepares for somebody to say “Tony Macaroni from Lodi actually already frontside flipped into that in 1912.”*
Brianna Delaney has a new, all-Barcelona part out for Grand Collection and Converse. In a career full of incredible back tails, that ender still belongs in the hall of fame.
Our guy Rafael Pereira B.K.A. Haffa dropped a new part filmed on his travels throughout Latin America, with some impeccable switch heel form to close things out.

Scumco and Tristan Mershon present Striking Distance 2, their latest project featuring Jake Baldini, Dave Abair, Kyle Nicholson, the legend Jerry Mraz, the legend Kevin Taylor, and many of today’s most esteemed crust evangelists.
Will Rosenstock and Venue Skateshop present Ninetyfour, the latest full-ish length video from Bust Crew and the slice in time when the A.V.E. bench was in Richmond, Virginia.
Huge past week for Ty Beall, who had heavy footage across both of the aforementioned projects, in addition to this mini part for Pepper Grip.
Jake Todd’s Philly [and beyond] video, Devil’s Pocket, is now live in full.
Naquan Rollings released a new edit on YouTube. Mostly L.A. stuff, with a bit of New York. Features all the staple characters from Naquan edits, and an impeccable transition from Sada Baby to MF Doom, whose MM..Food album has been #trending a bit as of late…
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.”
What in the wide wide world of sports is a “Training Field?!” Ummm hellooooo, it’s a F A C I L I T Y. There’s a quick feature on the making of the Palace Calvin Klein collab up on GQ. If you want some more Willem Dafoe New York content, highly recommend you watch Light Sleeper from 1992, assuming you’re ok with your movies being more ~vibes~ than plot. Written/directed by Paul Schrader (dude who wrote Taxi Driver obvs), and Susan Sarandon is hot af in it (lol) 🥵
Switch flip goals via Jessyka Bailey’s part in There’s Ruining Skateboarding video, which went up on Thrasher late last week.
Sometimes the skate gods smile down upon you, and you and some friends get a lot of time at Forbidden Banks. SOMETIMES. All that and more in Misc Moments #4 from Marcello, Nabi, Caleb, and the Canal boys.
One of the lesser seen Harlem Banks shots — the infamous uptown spot discussed in the Full Bleed ten-year anniversary interview earlier this month. Mike “Tex” Kelly, shot by Spike Jonze in 1988. Spotted via Science Versus Life.
Definitely one of the last tricks to be captured at the Carroll Street manny pad — one of Gabe Tennen’s favorite skate spots — via Max Rowlette’s “Shadow” part, spotted via Skate Jawn.
Chauncey Ledges is an entirely different spot once the ground gets cold. Headgear’s “I’m Just Livin’ It” edit is pretty much an all-Chauncey video features James Sayres and friends.
Feels like this one should have some more eyes on it: “kindasorta” by Nate Hanson. The needle-thread ollie to completely perpendicular boardslide in Murray Hill (?) is wild.
