Let It All Work Out

Via @keenanforeverfoundation

We did an end of the year inventory over at the warehouse, and turned up some loosies of things we had marked as sold out. Check the webstore in case you missed out on something from the last release. It’s not a restock, e.g. maybe we found quite literally two larges of a tee and threw them back online. Once they’re gone, they’re gone. Thank you everyone for all the support throughout the year.

“I think me doing all these other things outside of skating makes me like skating more.” Thrasher posted up Tyshawn’s interview from the last issue, and the full “BLESSED” article online. Still processing how Kadow’s Chinatown Banks lipslide ever worked out.

2018 Kiki mix and 2018 E.J. mix.

Boil the Ocean is still running down their annual Top 10 parts segment, and Cafe Creme offers up a #list for their 2018 “Gourmet Selection.” The final installment of our Year in Review will be live shortly ;)

Daniel Kim put together a Jason Byoun “Groer of the Underworld” remix.

Neil Herrick’s part in Fairman’s 4 really turns up a couple notches after Jordan Trahan’s (…right?) guest trick.

Mike Sass put up PFP5 online in its entirety.

We’ve discussed having to reach adulthood before truly ~getting~ Tom Penny before, but the Cult of Tom guy *got it* right away.

Despite talking shit about how nothing really went online video-wise last week, this Converse Brazil video has some wild clips in it. And while we’re at it, Tiago’s section from TWS’ Duets video is online too. Thx 4 the love bro ♥

Merry Jinxmas from Hijinx!

Paul Young uploaded a few minutes of circa 2015 Nick Ferro raw files.

New year, new Pace Ledge. Safe to say that the A.B.D. scroll has been refreshed.

Need a playlist with a sizable chunk of the Young Thug leaks from 2018? Yeah, you do. It’s insane some of these are sitting in purgatory compared to what gets released by the label. This playlist > the sum of his “official” 2018 output, and his “Let It All Work Out” is better than his dad’s ♥

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Theotis Beasley WITH THE BLOCK!!!

Quote of the Week:

— Jamal Smith

Frog Skateboards, Stingwater, Heineken & Hjalte Halberg Present — Came to Paris For Nothing

After millions of dollars spent on airfare and accommodations, nearly a full day of traveling over sea and land, and much meticulous planning that it takes to get dozens of boys across the Atlantic, we were in Paris asking the immortal question that guides our lives: “Where are we gonna skate today?”

About 70% of the way through the trip, Nolan revealed that the only reason he swam to Paris (he’s not a big fan of planes) was for the purpose of skating the famous colored manual pad spot seen in a myriad of skate videos growing up. Much to his dismay, when those “where are we gonna skate today?”-convos were taking place and the spot would get mentioned, the proceeding thoughts were familiar…

“I think that’s still under scaffolding?”

“Are there other spots around there?”

“It’s not as good as it looks in videos.”

“We gotta take a train to get there…I kinda wanted to push around today.”

See, it doesn’t matter where you are, or how many new spots you haven’t grown bored of skating you’re surrounded by. The struggle is real no matter where you go. The only difference is you might not be able to kick it with Sophie that day.

Watch below to see if we made it, or if we did in fact, come to Paris for nothing.

YouTube blocked the video is Canada on account of the fire George Michael song. Canadians!!! Here is a Vimeo link.

“Wavy Wings” is the new one from Andre Page’s Inkwell Commons imprint. Features Josh Velez further exploring the [switch] slappy and wallie arc of his skateboard career, which leaving quick footed ledge-ry to those two wooden benches in the financial district that are somehow the only subsequent ledges in lower Manhattan that you get time at. However, the spot’s most transcendent moment may be the switch slappy nosegrind pop-out that combines all of the aforementioned ingredients :)

Guest tricks from Nick Nunez, Kadeem Walters, John Diaz, Connor Champion, Tyshawn Jones and Troy Stilwell with reportedly the best clip he ever got in his life.

Filmed by Andre Page. Edit by CRUZXCTRL.

Merry Christmas. This our our tenth Christmas clip. It is also the shortest out of the ten, but that’s due to some stuff for upcoming projects getting put aside :)

We’ve never issued an apology for poor filming before. We alienated anyone who could be offended by bad filming in 2007 at the very latest. However, the worst filmed clip in this entire video is one of Jake Johnson, who is the best, and a long-time benefactor of the steady hands of Ryan Garshell, Bill Strobeck, Brengar et al. Sorry about that. First and last time you’ll see an apology for really bad filming on here.

Enjoy your holiday and the 50+ degree days up ahead.

Features Max Palmer, Dallas Todd, Keith Denley, Jake Johnson, Zach Baker, Pad Dowd, Lurker Lou, Alexander Mosley, Kevin Tierney, Josh Velez, Nick Nunez, Connor Champion, Andre Page, Kadeem Walters, Matt Perez, Alex Olson, Ty Lyons, Sweet Waste, Antonio Durao, Mike Gigliotti, Johnny Wilson, and Cyrus Bennett.
