It’s Basketball Season Baby!

Don’t let anyone ever tell you that it cannot be done.

“Worst style?” “Just go on the explore page. It’s like fishing with dynamite.” So hyped that The Bunt got the famous scientist, Charles Rivard PhD. on the show.

There’s no way you haven’t seen the new Mark Suciu part where the entire second half is him going off in New York, right? Five-trick line at Reggaeton with a nollie cab noseblunt, the front 3 switch back lip at JFK, etc. Wow.

The Wolf of Prince Street

Cyrus really elevated the bar on tricks that utilize the re-built fountain ground at Flushing in his new HUF commercial. Wow.

Enjoyed this quick Jasper Stieve part from Venture and NJ Skateshop. (You should rewatch his Sportsmanshit section, btw.)

Lots of interviews this week…

“[The spot has] got to have some element that makes it weathered, so not everybody wants to skate it. But the people who do want to skate it really want to skate it.” John Gardner’s discusses presidential aspirations with Fred Gall as his V.P. in his interview from the June issue of Thrasher, which is now online.

Dancing in the Street

Kareem by Atiba. Put this in the MoMA.

Phew.

If you have a few extra bucks, please contribute to Stacey Abrams’ Fair Fight organization, which combats voter suppression in Georgia — a place that you’re going to be hearing about a lot these next two months. Shout out to our Georgia readers ♥

Nobody will ever back 180 after a tre flip quite the way Huf back 180ed after a tre flip. R.B. Umali and Hanni El Khatib put together a touching video tribute for Keith Hufnagel.

You likely caught this one via Free last week, but Hosea Peeters’ “Interlude” part by Daniel Policelli rips, complete with a Karl Watson nose manny 360 interpolation on Park Avenue, and a 10/10 back 3 down the big steps across from World Trade. Filmed entirely in New York over the course of two summer weeks, with guest tricks from the new gen Chocolate riders.

Barnacles!

Alexis via Zered on the photo.

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.

For Days

Thanks to everyone who came through Uncle Leroy’s Sidewalk Sale yesterday ♥ Will keep you updated on if there’s another one coming up.

“You just got to find nice people you love and hold the fuck onto them.” Grosso’s final episode of Love Letters To Skateboarding is a beautiful salute to the LGBTQ+ skate community.

Not much you haven’t heard by now, but it makes a particular impression with the overhead shots of skateparks in the city that have sat empty for months now: a twelve-minute look at how COVID-19 has affected the skate industry in New York, and in many ways, made the act of street skateboarding come full circle to an approach that existed before the skateparks were built everywhere.
