Brian Reid is pro! Wooooooo! Long overdue ❤️ Photo by Jake Darwen via Brian’s Thunder ad in the December 2023 Thrasher.
MARONE, the Bay Area-based video starring a bunch of New Jersey homies by Paul Overstrom and Ryan Burge, is now live in full on Skate Jawn — alongside an interview with its creators.
INT3RDIM3NSIONS is the new video by Nova World Order and Chris Patti. Entirely filmed in New York and features sections from Jose Zapatero, Luca Mayer and an ender part from Pat Hoblin full of cutty spots only for the mentally strong (that polejam shuv out to grate landing…)
Something for the mansion-having sauna soakers out there: Naquan Rollings has a new, mostly New York montage out, entitled “$$$four.” Neil Herrick’s double-bar 5050 on the Manhattan side of the Queensboro Bridge bikepath is so sick. Saw marks on it early this summer and wondered if anything besides a bonk had been done.
The Say You Swear podcast chatted with Bronze mastermind, Peter Sidlauskas, for over two hours in their latest episode.
Jahmal Williams is the latest subject of Lookback Library’s cover discussions series, recounting his memories of three different covers, from three different decades.
Stu Kirst rides for Baker.
“It’s ironic and sad that a culture whose activity became popular enough to have space allotted for its own built environments would go on to design spaces according to its own tastes that would then become the worst environments for the further development and continuation of the culture.” Dave Caddo got on the Substack wave: Skait Brane explores how to better use street spots as a guiding light in how skateparks are designed. His latest is about how Pyramid Ledges succeeds at being a great place for skateboarding in a way that your average out-ledge at a skatepark does not.
“Once I started skating Pulaski, there was just simple shit that became way more important. Things like going faster, doing things properly, you didn’t have to flip into everything but you had to grind the ledge a certain way.” Skate Jawn has an interview with Carpet Company rider, Rashad Murray.
Hardbody and Emilio Cuilan teamed up with Hjalte Halberg and Anton Juul’s Dancer imprint for what is effectively a nine-minute Hjalte and friends part to celebrate the release of Hardbody x Dancer. Filmed over the course of a year, it features many of the faces from DANY, and some new inclusions like Kyota, Meatball, David Stenström, and Antonio doing a guest trick across the street from Blue Park, for good measure.
It is no secret that there has been a now-longtime kinship between QS and the city of Copenhagen — dating back to the “56 Tricks” days and when Norwegian Airlines was practically giving away transatlantic plane tickets (e.g. JFK-CPH flights were under $400 round-trip if you bought the right summer dates.) Many years and a pandemic later, nothing has really changed — it was really tough not to watch this and want to start planning an impromptu Euro trip.
Hardbody x Dancer is available now. If you’re in the U.S. 🇺🇸 (or Canada prob), it’s probably best to get it from Hardbody. If you’re in Europe 🇪🇺, it’s probably better to get it from Dancer.

Pretty much all of our collective experiences of Copenhagen are within the bipolar high that is the Scandinavian Summer. For a bit of a reality check of what it’s like on the opposite side of that seasonal coin, our friends at Dancer dropped an “Endless Winter” montage featuring Hjalte, David Stenström + others. Still seems pretty fun, tbh.
Some nice bits of New York footage in the Charlotte-based AVENUE video parts that have been dropping across a few outlets: Vague has Jermaine Whittaker’s part, which includes a 10/10 Three Up Three Down performance, and Skate Jawn has Ethan Kaplan’s part, which includes a NBD (?) ollie at the white building plaza across from Pyramid Ledges.
Orchard Skateshop Capo, Armin Bachman, has a new mini part out for Pepper Griptape. That bank to curb ender in Barcelona really came out of nowhere 💥
The Duplex crew has a new montage video series on Thrasher, entitled “Low Rent.”
