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…)

Alex Greenberg hit New York’s first-ever concrete park with Oski back when it was a bit warmer, and came back with an enjoyable lil’ edit. Salute to the yellow shirt.
“Little Blue Star” is a great new edit by Jake Kuzyk featuring a bunch of Canadian friends.
Our friends at Dancer in Copenhagen released an iPhone part with Hjalte Halberg and David Stenström. Cross dissolves are back, baby!
The only constant is change or some shit like that ;)
So much nineties New York footage on the #repost circuit is us re-mining R.B. Umali’s amazing archive over and over that it’s a shock to see something from then that you haven’t seen before. Alex Corporan started going through all his old tapes, and put together a montage as a preview for a Revisted-esque project he’s working on.
Grand Collection has a short commercial with Connor Champion on the occasion of their Umbro collaboration — loosely inspired by the DC Kalis commercial that played on TV twenty years ago. (Filmed in New York! Not Philly!)
Just make the next one Tyshawn Jones Pro Skater. Photo via Atiba.
“I just saw myself as a homie who was helping another homie. That was not something that ever crossed my mind like, ‘Am I good at this?’ Both of us are happy in that moment.” Jenkem has an amazing interview with Briana King about her meet-ups for girls and LGBTQ youth learning to skateboard.
“I think you really got to listen to your feeling. Don’t go for the show. Go for your heart.” Lucas Puig on relationships, wood, plants, oceans and not having his johnson fall out when he’s skating in shorts — also for Jenkem, also inspiring. Maybe it’s time we start working on a sequel to the “Poolside” remix…
“I went from being a kid skating on my block to hanging out with all the best skaters in New York City because I learned how to do a frontside 360 boneless.” A friend once had a story about how their book club took a razor to The Powerbroker and sliced it up into three books to make it more reasonable of a read. This isn’t that dramatic, but a blog interview that takes over two hours to read is a lot for most people in the era of byte-sized #content — but we’re *SO* happy that people are putting detailed, rich content on the internet that requires a commitment! Isn’t that what it’s for?! The Slam City Skates blog’s interview with Eli Gesner about skateboarding + graffiti in New York in the 80s, night clubs in the early 90s, the beginnings of Shut + Zoo York, etc. is like a little history book :)
“This skatepark was founded in 1906 by the Black Panther party.”
