Halloween Stickers Skateboards just dropped their latest full-length video, HSS 3 — the formal follow-up to The HSS Video, which you may remember running on here exactly two years ago.
If you remember that, you certainly remember Liam McCabe’s green sweater day, where he skated the best possible set of stairs in Manhattan [at the time …it’s now skateblocked] and then proceeded to tre flip the worst possible set of stairs in Manhattan a few blocks away wearing the same St. Patrick’s Day garb.
Today, we are proud to present to you the sequel to the green sweater part, in the form of Liam’s HSS 3 curtains section. There’s no definining ~garment~ to follow in the footage, but yeah — holy fucking shit. Love how he manages to hit so many deep Jersey spots that date back to the Wenning days to tick off NBDs, and subsequently upends all expectations on the Brooklyn spots that everybody passes by twenty times a week at the same time (Monument, Williamsburg Bus Depot, Verizon Banks…)

Keeping things moving right along…
It is December. Can you believe it? The year that began with you suggesting to a friend, “Hey do you want to go to an outdoor dining shack in 18-degree weather with snow on the ground to have a beer because if I stay inside my apartment any longer I’m going to claw my own eyes out,” and that friend going “Sure!” is coming to a close.
As we do every year, thus begins our [mostly] scene-specific Top 25 countdown of things that defined the past twelveish months.

Our brainwaves are well-accustomed to the experience of watching a friends video by: wholesome vibes, seshing the same spots together, smiles, daps, hugs, beers, someone hucks more than the others.
But sometimes, our expectations get thrown with the last part. Sly videomakers will hold out until the very end. P.J. Ladd’s Wonderful Horrible Life is the most famous example of this; The Hardbody Video inverted this approach earlier this year.
Maybe you caught Dylan Holderness and Evan Pacheco’s Suppy during 2020’s Skateboard Oscars Season, one of the more low-key releases from the footage onslaught that coincides with the final three months of the year. If you’re not sure, do you remember seeing a clip of a guy kickflipping the double set at the Escape From New York church? Yeah, that’s pretty hard to forget.
