Looks Pretty Dope

Congrats to E.T. on going pro 🍸 Board available on the Alltimers site nowPhoto by Anthony Asfour.

Added Kevin Braun’s “Pier 7” part + Casper Brooker’s “Cathedral” part filmed entirely at Southbank (it’s actually the fourth inclusion to be filmed entirely at SB) to the Quartersnacks One-Spot Part Map, which is slowly creeping its way to 100 spots :)

There is absolutely no way you haven’t already caught these, right? Jamal Smith skates to his own music and returns to the Ithaca Park that made him a superstar in his new Adidas part (that heelflip front blunt!) + Jahmir Brown pays homage to Javier Nuñez’s front crook off the Courthouse Drop in his new DC part.

Destroyed skater jeans. Pre-order now. $1,290. And here we were fretting about having raised the price of QS tees by $2 ☺️

“Forced into the wilderness for years first by cords, then by Dickies, Carharts and assorted chinos, jeans now are the stuff of kingdom-making and eternal glory.” And on that very same note, Boil the Oceans offers some analysis on how jeans have climbed to become the north star of the skateboard industry.

Leo Heinert + crew blitzed Black Hubba and threw a big contest on it a week ago. Flipping into a crook on that thing is nuts.

(Saw that comments weren’t working for most of last week. That issue has [*hopefully*] been fixed. If you’re a devout QS commenter and still getting an error, hit us on social or e-mail.)

“Every interview cemented that yeah, he accomplished a lot but it was about skateboarding and that actually meant something that he fostered: growing a community by supporting people you believe in.” Anthony Pappalardo the Writer wrote a bit about Huf’s impact on him as an east coaster with teen eyes on San Francisco in the nineties.

Village Psychic re: “Huf & Friends” from Interface.

TWS rounded up the words and tributes from fellow pro skaters about the influence Keith Hufnagel had on their lives ♥

All remaining QS tees + whatever else we have left is on sale for cheap on our webstore. Mostly smalls and mediums left ♥ Thanks for your support, as always.

All tees still available in the webstore, hoodys are sold out. Available instore from Supreme New York & LA, Seasons, Humidity, One-Up, Commissary, Exit and NJ Skateshop. If you’re in Europe, QS gear is available online via Lost Art (free shipping in the UK), Palomino and Cali Roots. Thanks for the support.

Alexander Mosley launched his new website, Watermelonism.com. New clip on there featuring a quick Billy Waldman cameo. Support the Watermelon man by buying a board or tee. Down since day zero.

Trevor Colden won over the entire QS office by skating to Migos for his Skate Mental intro part (oddly to the song we joked about using for the Westgate remix.) Needless to say, skimming through people crying about the music supervision in the comments was real familiar experience. Now who’s gonna skate to “Freak No More?”

In addition to the lost Reese Forbes part that made it online last week, Donny Barley had a full section from the same Quiksilver promo. It’s great.

Volume 2 of Muckmouth’s “Where are they now?” series featuring Billy Valdez, Aaron Snyder, Robbie Gangemi, Eric Ricks and others. Speaking of Aaron Snyder, how good would an Epicly Later’d on the entire Shorty’s team be? (Huf is getting one, BTW.)

Diamond Days #73. Keith still doesn’t know where the lipstick came from.

There’s, like, one good spot in London.

There’s a 59-year-old cab driver in the Guangdong providence of China (a place with more than one spot) who doesn’t speak a word of English, but makes a living driving skateboarders around to spots that he shows them on his phone.

There’s a Leo Heinert video check-out over on the TWS site. He frontside 5050s through the knobs on the long Union Square rail.

New Balance with probably the highest production value on a “Summer Trip to New York” clip ever. Can we please stop attaching two-minute credits sections after three-minute web clips? All due respect to those behind the scenes, but it’s excessive.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Kevin Durant’s fallaway four-point play was insane, but the Thunder ended up losing the game in overtime, so it’s got to go to Vince Carter’s three-point game winner. Who knew Vince Carter was seventh in all-time made threes? How good have the playoffs been? Is the cloud of Donald Sterling’s worldview from two centuries ago going to end up costing the Clippers the series?
