“Why Has It Rained Every Weekend in NYC and When Will It Stop?” 🌧️
Village Psychic premiered our friend (and QS correspondent) Adam Abada’s part in Perennial by Kevin Horn, “a skate video by our friend from Minnesota starring our friends from New Jersey that was filmed in L.A.”
New Baker rider Stu Kirst is the latest guest on the Angel & Z podcast.

Leo Heinert’s Blitz Jam series hosted an impromptu skate jam at Flushing last week, and a bunch of wild shit went down. Really sick seeing people huck down the six, which feels like it hasn’t seen a ton of action since they renovated it over COVID. Brandon has got to go back for that 360 flip — that was wild.
Hypebeast paid a visit to Carpet Company HQ in Baltimore, and came back with a video exploring the two brothers’ creative and production process.
Soo Saxton is back with Gabe Shah for another six minute part filmed entirely in New York. You can feel the cold through the screen in some of those clips.
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.”
Happy New Year 🍾
Tyshawn Jones was on Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning last week. He says he’s retiring the can tricks.
Kei Tsuruta put out an extended end-of-the-year iPhone edit of all the Homies Network crew with reportage from Tompkins and beyond.
Monster Children has an interview with Naquan Rollings out.
Neema Joorabchi already released another video — not even a month removed from the release of “limp” in December. “Okay Then” dropped on the Transworld site just before the year timed out. Looks like the knob-job on the Crosby and Grand diamond-plate thing has already been conquered. Also, holy frontside flip at the Lily Pads.
Added Thrasher‘s “The Union Square Video” — from San Francisco’s Union Square, naturally — to the Quartersnacks One-Spot Part Map, which turns one this coming July! We started out with 46 parts filmed exclusively at one spot, and have quickly worked our way to two shy of 80, with at least one on every continent except Antarctica 🥶 Wonder what it’d take to film a video exclusively at New York’s Union Square though (slated to be renovated soon, too.)
Be sure to stop by and support Skate Like A Girl’s 4th annual “Get On Board” silent auction fundraiser.
Anybody who has pulled up to the Kosciuszko Bridge spot (the new home of all the Blue Park obstacles) has asked, “Wait… is this a skatepark or..?” Jenkem got the full backstory on how it got built and why it differs from other skateparks in New York. Still didn’t answer why they used round coping 😡
