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.

“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.
Lebron is battling Carmelo in the NBA Playoffs …in August, and Nas made a new song with Foxy Brown, AZ and Cormega. Who really knows what fucking year it actually is, what’s going on — or anything, really.
Incredible manuals, great spots, and chic skate noises in Japhey Dow’s Heirloom part, which traverses all around New York state.
“If skateboarding is the quilt and all of these other interests that make up so much of skateboarding, if those things are the patches, just keep adding patches.” Sage Elsesser interviewed Ray Barbee for Thrasher.

Alexis Sablone self-filmed, scored and edited her new part, which includes a switch varial heelflip that should be played on loop in the flip trick museum.
Not only is Skate Jawn one of the best longstanding American skate ‘zines, but they are also the principal torch-holders for the “video magazine” format that people of a certain age grew up with. Their 10yerr video feels like a spiritual sequel to Fiddy, though more specified in its episodes, with sections in Japan, Prague, extras from the Rust Belt Trap squad, etc.
The classic “We’ve been stuck at Columbus Park all day but at least there’s a pretty sunset”-photo. Any skaters ever from these buildings?

“Are you getting the Travis Scott SBs?”
“Yeah, we’re getting them. We’re doing a raffle over the phone — you just have to sing a Travis Scott song right now. Just tell us which one, and we’ll drop the beat.”
Area Code is a new full-length video out of The Bronx by Edgar Padilla. Features an opener from Angel Fonseca, and an ender part from Olu Stanley. And like any video out of The Bronx, it feels refreshingly different than the Tompkins-Mural Ledge-Pyramids Ledges-whatever circuit we find ourselves in on a typical #content hunt.
