The bros. New QS goods available in U.S. shops now. International sooner than soon. Our webstore relaunches this Friday, November 3 @ noon E.S.T. 📷 by Jason Lecras.
Jersey legend Ron Deily has a new part out for NJ Skateshop and Square Up Skateboards, full of NJ crust + an emphatic stomp on a switch front blunt in The Bronx.
“In general not being so hard on yourself is a big one. It can get dark, you gotta love yourself, all the cliche shit is kinda true.” Music talk, the origin of Late Nite Stars + more in Skate Jawn‘s interview with Alan Bell, available in both video and written form :) Run back Mr. Bell’s “ab” part after you’re done with the interview.

The longer you stay in one place, the more you get to know the people there. If you’ve skated in New York anytime since the Autumn era, it probably didn’t take long until you ran into Keith. As around as he was, though, you somehow never got as much as you wanted. Closer friends saw him skate on trips or sessions between work, while co-workers got some of his hardest working hours.
The skating that did trickle out to the public was always timeless, though. As it turns out, one of those co-workers turned him pro. It is this kind of steady, thoughtful, genuine living that makes Keith’s personality and skating alike so delightful to be around. It’s been long overdue to hear, in his own words, what makes Keith …well, Keith.

From a skate house above a chicken shop by Southbank to a GQ feature: Fashion-writer-who-actually-skates-and-can-write, Noah Johnson, profiled the minds behind Palace for a feature in Famous Men’s Magazine™.
Heckride interviewed Johnny and Mitchell’s brother, Andrew. Very excited for Coots’ video ♥
There is no shortage of crust evangelists working in New York skateboarding today, but every once in a while, there’s a part so endlessly dedicated to spots with eight things wrong with them that you need to stop and give #respect. Charlie Cassidy’s 4 x 4 part is one of those, and Vague mag has the part + an interview with him about it. The cast of In Crust We Trust would be proud :)
It’s sold out everywhere, but just another nod to how great the Brandon Turner guest board for Carpet Company is. 10/10 to everyone involved.
Thanks to everybody who grabbed something from the webstore last week ♥ Should be caught up on shipping in the next few days. Available at shops worldwide now. If you came looking for XLs after the relaunch and it was coming up sold out, check back now. Restocked a bunch of styles in XL. (Will do 2XL on the next release for everyone who has been asking, yes.)
Last week, the New York City Public Design Commission voted unanimously to remove and relocate the Roosevelt statue in front of the Museum of Natural History. There are renderings available that propose fully flattening the chains + pedestal section of the
plaza skate spot, but there has been no formal decision on the design once the statue is gone — with people saying they should rethink the pedestal space (A.K.A. the #perfectlearningheight ledge that everyone loves) rather than just leveling where it once stood.
