Alex Greenberg hit New York’s first-ever concrete park with Oski back when it was a bit warmer, and came back with an enjoyable lil’ edit. Salute to the yellow shirt.

ICYMI: The teaser for Supreme and Bill Strobeck’s new video, Play Dead, dropped on Friday.
DUPLEX 4 coming soon. This YouTube review of DUPLEX 3 should get you hyped.
Crazy Ass Paterson Skaters posted the recap from their second “Land or Slam” event, where they just mob to street spots throughout Paterson, New Jersey giving out cash + product for tricks. It has the freeform feel of a skate contest from a distant past, just done for the sake of doing it. That tre flip into the kinked bank downtown and the one-foot hill bomb were wild 😮
Skateboarding — like anything else that has been around long enough to earn a mythology — is full of references, nods, winks and homages. In an effort to shine a light on some of these bits of lore that are often left unknown to anybody outside a skater’s inner-circle or saved for a career-spanning interview, Farran Golding began digging on some talking points that piqued his interest.
The first arrived almost serendipitously, as an aside to his convo with Mason Silva for our “Five Favorite Parts” segment, which took place two months after Mason rode his multi-part year into a S.O.T.Y. trophy — apparently with Jake Johnson Mind Field spots on the brain.
The goal of these pieces will be not so much as a commentary track or a raw files, but an expanded version of what otherwise often only appears onscreen for a few seconds.

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.
