The Price of Fireworks is Skyrocketing

Summer QS goods available in shops worldwide now. (Should be arriving in Europe / the U.K. throughout the week.) The QS webstore relaunches with summer items this Wednesday, June 23rd, at 11 A.M. E.S.T. Photo above via Labor Skateshop.

It’s incredible that when some people rally for the preservation of a place that inadvertently became an iconic skate spot, it could just get kept the same and furnished with flawless new ground — rather than the alternative, which is of course, them being told to go fuck themselves. ANYWHO, the Hélas caps company offers a who’s who of European ledgesmanship in its latest video filmed entirely at Lyon’s Hotel de Ville plaza.

There’s a solid batch of New York clips in Kevin White’s new “GLOBETROTTER” part. (Everyone get your time in on that Tribeca manny pad while that corner is still up for lease…) He’s also the latest subject of Pocket‘s always-enjoyable “Followed” series.

The Wolf of Prince Street

Cyrus really elevated the bar on tricks that utilize the re-built fountain ground at Flushing in his new HUF commercial. Wow.

Enjoyed this quick Jasper Stieve part from Venture and NJ Skateshop. (You should rewatch his Sportsmanshit section, btw.)

Lots of interviews this week…

“[The spot has] got to have some element that makes it weathered, so not everybody wants to skate it. But the people who do want to skate it really want to skate it.” John Gardner’s discusses presidential aspirations with Fred Gall as his V.P. in his interview from the June issue of Thrasher, which is now online.

… And Then There Was X

“Took this at the corner of 3rd Street and 2nd Avenue almost eight years ago to the day. DMX was stopped at the intersection waiting for a red light. I nervously fumbled to get my phone out, framed him up, snapped one off and gave him a nod. He smiled, nodded back and told me to buy his record. The light turned green and he was off… R.I.P.” — Keith Denley, 4.14.13 / NY, NY

Not often that you see such an expanding brain take on skating the Courthouse Drop :)

The Skate Media™ loves Hungary’s Rios Crew. They’ve kept it interesting and evolving for so long. Just take it from Live’s lovely write-up on Mátyás Ricsi’s new Rios part, or the corresponding Grey interview with him about it. Budapest and Marseilles — that’s the post-pandemic travel wishlist, and that has everything to do with watching random skate edits on the internet ♥

So Icy

November 20th from here on out should be Brandon Turner Day.

There is no chance that you haven’t caught this already, right? Naquan Rollings’ “BUSS” video for Thrasher went live last week. This, “Rerock,” Kill Bill,” and “Pre-Roll” are the de facto box set of 2020 edits that we’ll look back on for a snapshot of New York skateboarding in this year.

Village Psychic was inspired by skier style (yes, skiers are as big fashion of nerds as we are, though they’re a bit more “official” about it) to consider the ideal skate outfit. Illustrations by Abada ♥

Which one of you has a foot fetish and hooked up with a writer from Vogue this past May? S/O for being responsible and getting a COVID test beforehand.
