Angel and the Papi Brand dudes dropped the new installment of their Bronx-centric video series, and it’s the most extensive one yet: Bill$ 4 Inflation went live last week. Features great parts from Angel Fonseca (who’s still getting better and better) and Justin Adams + other homies, and a lot of dives into Bronx spots that only the locals skate.
Nothing is touching Limo edits right now. It’s not even that much skating, but the eight minutes fly by in Limosine’s North Carolina trip video featuring the entire team.
Ryan Mettz made an extended edition remix of Max Palmer’s “Spiked Off” part from March with more guest clips, B-sides and unseen clips.
Feels like fuckin’ yesterday: The Shady One dove into some old footage and made a “Summer With Friends 2016” montage that provides a vivid snapshot of downtown Manhattan skateboarding just seven short years ago. Features pretty much anyone you would’ve seen in a Johnny Wilson video circa 2016.
About nine hours after its release, we are perhaps the last skateboard media institution in existence to not have posted something about the new Limosine edit.
By now, you have probably caught wind of the fact that the video contains two — yes, two! — tricks heard around the world. (A trick heard around the world is that rare moment when the Instagram timeline unifies into a consensus and every account reposts the same clip. Notable examples are Tiago’s switch back tail on the high, not-skated ledge at MACBA in 2017, or Midler back 3’ing into the Hollywood car wash in 2020.) Today, these were, of course, Noah Mahieu’s other-way 5-0 pivot to fakie 5-0 in Paris, and Karim’s already certified classic frontside flip over the Houston Park rail.
And we’re only reporting on them now.
When you hear Lenox has the fire wifi…
Naquan Rollings dropped a quick edit of his crew’s first session down the Brooklyn Banks 9. There are some beautiful pieces of flip trick #form in there.
Not even a few hours after it finished, the YouTubers compiled all the stories and Insta posts of the footage from the Hardies x Supreme event at 12th and A this past Saturday. Features obviously Tyshawn, but also Karim Callender, Troy Gipson, and Who Kid in the dunk tank.
Aaron Herrington and Lurker Lou hit the Staten Island flatbar park and more in the latest installment of Village Psychic’s “Lurking With Lou” series.

Congrats to Aaron Loreth on going pro for Limosine Skateboards ❤️ Aaron has a new part by Benny Maglinao out. As an added bonus, Farran Golding chopped up the audio of Trung Nguyen talking about Aaron’s 917 #2 section over the original part via Trung’s Five Favorite Parts installment.
Hugh O’Hare + some of the Travel Skateshop heads have a New Jersey-based montage out featuring a bunch gentleman who are exceptionally talented at manuals 📍
EC Melodi has a new one out entitled “Break Your Legs,” featuring favs like Akobi Williams, Coles Bailey, Myles Underwood, and more. Also includes maybe the most insane minute of slams in recent memory towards the middle.

“That could have been me.” The Guardian spoke to several Black skateboarders — including our dear friend Aaron Wiggs, along with Harold Hunter Foundation chair + architect of The Black List, Patrick Kigongo — about their experiences in the shadow of Tyre Nichols’ murder at the hands of police.
“Yeah! At Glendale High!” Farran Golding had Nelly Morville talk over her Paymaster part about how the Limosine connection came to be + filming for their inaugural video.
Columbus Circle continues to enjoy its reign as the spot of the winter: Christian Kerr just dropped an edit with a days’ worth of Columbus footage, and yes, you get to see Gabe Tennen shred in it! It’s a foregone conclusion someone is going to drop a one-spot part from there by May, right?
