QS is by no means a Laker enterprise — just trying to be supportive of any and all events that lead to joy in the life of shirtless icon, J.R. Smith. Also L O L L L L L L at him having as many titles as the entire New York Kn*cks franchise.
Theories caught up with a bunch of New York skaters to ask about their spot hunting stories from the initial COVID shutdown in the city. Those days when Natural History, CBS and Big Screen were all a go at once were magic amongst the shit ♥
When Bobby’s QS part dropped back in 2014, there was a background current about how “Bobby and Migos doesn’t make sense” (no doubt from guys who pester teenagers’ montage music selections on YouTube.) Somehow, he exists in people’s minds as this Kool Keith evangelist, due to his obvs great Right Foot Forward song.
The joke is on them though — because when I originally asked him about what song he wanted to skate to for it, he told me Wiz Khalifa’s then-buzzing, “We Dem Boyz.”
No, this remix isn’t to retreat back on him skating to 2014’s Song of the Summer contender. We even resisted the more literal route of editing it to something from 2017’s most underrated album, which just so happens to be from the DMV area (kinda ABD, tho we used the most obvious song off it.) Nah, this one is for another lesser known side of Bob. We dedicate this QS remix to Bobby Worrest: Ladies Man ♥
Here’s a gentle reminder to worry a bit less about ascending in skateboarding’s paid elite this year, and to save some money to travel with your friends to some far-off skate spots and simply have a good time ♥
Pretty stoked to start 2018 off with a whole roster of local videos…
QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Porzingis is obviously close (no playoffs…yet, maybe 2025), but Tyson Chandler is still the best Knicks player of the current millennium. Happy to see him up to his old tricks in a warmer climate.

Was contemplating taking a four-day weekend and not posting Monday Links until Wednesday, but got enough people in the office to cruise around the internet for a bit. Russ got MVP, Phil got fired and Tyshawn fakie ollied a trash can in front of Supreme since the last Monday Links post, and all of those things feel like they happened a month ago…(Don’t know who took the photo above btw.)
Romain Batard uploaded a “Summer Trip to New York” montage with one of the cooler recent lines at Fredrick Douglas Plaza. Also, why does it seem like that spot almost exclusively appears in “_____ Trip to New York” videos?
Seems like it has been a big past couple of years for spots resurrecting. Here’s an interview about the effort to restore London’s Southbank undercroft to its original form from pre-2004. (Small Banks helllllooooo.)
Unswayed by the fact that no storied skate company has ever come back from the dead to come close to its glory days, Alien Workshop announced yesterday that it will be joining Habitat under the Tum Yeto umbrella. Seagullllllssssss…
