2011 was a good year. It went by fast as hell, but it was fun.
We complained about the weather a bunch, made a custom-cut cruiser board, listened to the NPBS mixtape on repeat, contemplated / wore camo, skated SoHo, got Carmelo Anthony, didn’t win a playoff game, lost our favorite skate spot, gained a new skate spot, related to Chad Fernandez’s struggles, met Young Dro, experimented with hair color, bought a fake iPhone, got to the top where we belong, gave away free advice, received some stupid love letters, saw Waka Flocka at 12th & A, went HD, went to Europe, skated a $700 skateboard like it ain’t nothin’, bought a bunch of shit we didn’t need for a fake hurricane, lived ten years since 9/11, witnessed the greatest mall grab in the history of mall grabs, ran through a check at King of Diamonds, made it on WorldStar, got married, joined the army, didn’t occupy Wall Street, deleted Watch the Throne, and bumped a lot of 2 Chainz.
If you don’t want to click all of those links, well, this five minute QS “Best of 2011” video will summarize the year perfectly. Cast list isn’t neccesary, because it features at least one trick from 75% of the people who matter in skateboarding.
