“The pop guys are good looking and the drop guys are weird looking.” Lurker Lou and Aaron Herrington head out to Staten Island to skate “anything besides ABC Ledges” in the latest installment of Village Psychic’s “Lurking With Lou” series.
It takes Shaggy nearly 100 blocks to spend $100 in the latest installment of Skate Jawn‘s “$100 Chill” feature, which spans from World Trade to the Upper West Side. If you’ve always wondered what goes on inside the mind of skateboarding’s most prolific letter-writer, this is a nice intro ☺️
“In response to an art-making AI, the only comforting thing is, who cares? Art has never been about being proficient and skilled at making images with mediums. It’s always been about the time and the place and the person behind it and the story, and a computer doesn’t have any of that.” Jenkem spoke to Alexis Sablone about AI art, secret societies and invisibility cloaks.
Jeff Cecere’s latest feels like a nice palette cleanser after the onslaught of Skateboard Oscars Season™. Mostly filmed in New York, with lots of deep dives for spots, the continuation of the Polish Ledges’ 2022 Renaissance, and banks protruding from places you hadn’t even noticed had banks — Mind How You Go is a perfect way to close the lid on a month of skate videos worthy of a ESPN 30 For 30.
Features parts from Zac Gavin, Max Maffucci, Nate Grzechowiak, Tristen Ramirez and an incredible ender part from Johnny Cumaoglu (not to mention a surprise Bronze section held down by Mark Humienik, Dick Rizzo, Josh Wilson and Grady Smith.) Filmed and edited with precision by Jeff Cecere.

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!
Holiday QS stuff arriving at U.S. shops now. Online soon. Europe + Asia + Canada should be arriving this week. Much love for the support as always 🎁
The quality + quantity of footage Antonio got in one day of skating downtown L.A. for an Insta clip promoting a Dunk collab does a decent job of capturing his magic. Kinda felt like a more lo-def edition of those Numbers edits they were dropping in the late 2010s.
Our friends at Classic Grip dropped a new edit: “Basgrain 700k.”
Thrasher posted their photo feature from Supreme’s Play Dead video online for all those who didn’t catch the print issue, with captions from Ben Kadow. “This concludes bump-to-can skating.”
Pro skater / hockey player / tennis player / jump roper Gino Iannucci is the latest subject of Thrasher‘s “Out There” series.
Pat Hoblin dropped a part with Place filmed in New York over the course of five days, full of cutty spots and cramped spaces.

Zach Moore (director of last summer’s remix blockbuster, “Jake Johnson: The Movie“) is front-running for delivering 2021’s best laughs so far. A) “The Ultimate Skate Songs Collection” envisions skate videos’ most iconic music in the format of a late-night TV commercial for a CD box set. The plot twist in this one is so brilliant. B) “A Caption To Die For” pays tribute to Thrasher‘s often absurd video captions in the form of old-timey newspapermen by way of classic Hollywood film noir. Give Zach Moore his skate Oscar.
This likely got to you last week, but ICYMI, Cyrus was the latest guest on The Bunt.
