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.

Much Deeper

Rest in Peace Virgil ❤️

Skate Jawn has a feature on Jody’s Spot, the D.I.Y. spot built by Fred Gall in his New Jersey hometown, which the world first saw in his “Out There.” Please sign the petition to keep the spot from being destroyed by the city for no good reason.

Put Will Marshall’s line at the Museum — as seen in his new Dime part — in the Museum Line Hall of Fame. Kickflip front crook is insane too.

Best city for skate edits in 2021? Marseilles, no doubt. Here’s #anotherone from the Raskal dudes: “Hellos Dias.”

Added Simone Rocca’s “BILLET DOUX” video, filmed entirely at Rome’s D.I.Y. spot, Ponte Della Musica, to the QS One-Spot Part Map. It is where we discovered 12th & A design principles had made their way to European skate spots while visiting in 2018.

“Is that an NFT on Mike Carroll’s opening line in Modus Operandi?” New Michigan-heavy Bronze 56k radio just dropped.

Ryan Mettz shared some photos from the making of HIT.

“Worst style?” “Just go on the explore page. It’s like fishing with dynamite.” So hyped that The Bunt got the famous scientist, Charles Rivard PhD. on the show.

There’s no way you haven’t seen the new Mark Suciu part where the entire second half is him going off in New York, right? Five-trick line at Reggaeton with a nollie cab noseblunt, the front 3 switch back lip at JFK, etc. Wow.

Dancing in the Street

Kareem by Atiba. Put this in the MoMA.

Phew.

If you have a few extra bucks, please contribute to Stacey Abrams’ Fair Fight organization, which combats voter suppression in Georgia — a place that you’re going to be hearing about a lot these next two months. Shout out to our Georgia readers ♥

Nobody will ever back 180 after a tre flip quite the way Huf back 180ed after a tre flip. R.B. Umali and Hanni El Khatib put together a touching video tribute for Keith Hufnagel.

You likely caught this one via Free last week, but Hosea Peeters’ “Interlude” part by Daniel Policelli rips, complete with a Karl Watson nose manny 360 interpolation on Park Avenue, and a 10/10 back 3 down the big steps across from World Trade. Filmed entirely in New York over the course of two summer weeks, with guest tricks from the new gen Chocolate riders.
