Zered over The Grate™ by Jonathan Mehring 📷 • ~10ish years ago • Tell Zered happy bday today ❤️
Pat Smith’s Coda Skateboards imprint turned 20 this year, and to celebrate, they dropped their fourth full-length video entitled Coda EP, which is heavy on the D.I.Y. spots (some built outta mulch…) + crust + includes a Tony Farmer section! Lots of crazy shit towards the end.
The Mômes boys out of Paris did a Barcelona trip and came back with a new edit: “Zero Footage.”
Videographer Joe Hiddleson has been uploading tapes captured from 90s skate missions, and this one of Bam Margera skating the Financial District in ’96 is gold. Ends on a drop-in battle down the grey wall that Stu Kirst rode into in Johnny’s Vid. Was shocked to see how much of lower Manhattan in 1996 still looks the same today.

No way you haven’t seen it but also no other way to begin the round-up: On Friday, Bronze dropped the second edition of “Bronze TV Channel 56” over on Thrasher. Includes full-ish parts from many staples of the Bronze franchise. That CBS ollie into the pit is absolutely insane.
Updated the Quartersnacks One-Spot Part Map for the first time in 2023: Tony Zhang’s Purgatory: The Sproul Video, is a video video filmed entirely at UC Berkeley’s Sproul Plaza, referred to in the YouTube description as “the worst spot in Berkeley.” (“Purgatory” is a fantastic way to describe the spots we waste away the most at.)
Jake Johnson runs through his history with no complies alongside an accompanying sizzle reel for Skate Jawn.
Christian Henry has a new, seven-minute part out with a hall of fame Columbus Park trick right in the middle. Not on the rail! Not on the two block! And it’s a noseslide!
There’s Sexhippies Albany edit featuring the Vargas bros and the rest of the team.

“Fixed the spot, made it doable, and then did it.” The Warm-Up Zone (the proto-4Ply) still clocks into the office once a year for a Fred Gall recap. It may be March, and well past our cut-off for end-of-the-year wrap-up content, but it is, after all… Fred: the 2022 Freddy Year in Review.
Nico Marti, Trung Ngyen, Alan Bell, Zak Anders + pretty much the whole RESPECTFULLY squad spent some time in L.A. and came back with a 14-minute winter getaway edit.

The union reps at Hit You Off Management shared just under two minutes of footage from Paul Young’s upcoming project, Down By Law.
The Hellraiser Promo out of Atlanta has a bit of New York footage and appearances from Ron Parker, Shareef Grady + others.
Something about the colors in this one… Will Lloyd and some brodies out of Arkansas dropped a “Summer Trip to New York” edit.
Jake Johnson’s Mind Field part has remained the most talked-about section in our Five Favorite Parts series, the reason for which was probably best explained by Gilbert Crockett: “He was about my age, he was an AM coming up, and he was on the east coast, just doing it. At that time, I remember thinking, ‘Nobody is doing that, nobody is skating on the east coast like this, and pursuing their skate career… like this.’ It kinda freaked me out, like ‘wait, so I can do anything I want?’ It was trippy. At the time, I was just going through the motions a bit, and that part made me realize that wasn’t the only way to be doing it. From then on, I approached everything differently. It was irreversible, you can’t unsee it.”
