First Shred of Spring

“This video encapsulates that sense of solace and escape.” Constantine Baranovskyi and his crew dropped “GOING THROUGH,” a Kyiv scene video filmed over the past year. Wow 🇺🇦

Sorry I’m Not From Here is a video by Shaquille Waite filmed during his first year of living in New York. Feel good vibes the whole way through + there’s a kickflip crook towards the end that is so wild and comes out of absolutely nowhere 😮

That Shit Held Me Down is a full-length New York scene video by Daniel Star, which includes tons of familiar faces (that Alan Bell clip at CBS is wild) + a part from Mecca Mshaka-Morris!

Antonio Durao & Hjalte Halberg Sk8 For Hardbody

Boards available now 💪

Max Palmer got the Pocket “Followed” treatment as they …followed him from his home, to his studio, to Fort Green Park, and then to pizza ❤️ Might be the first or second time many people are hearing Max talk.

Richie Blackshaw has a new part for Metal Skateboards via Vague — full of New Jersey crust and a Fred Gall-ian eye for spots. That 5-0 pivot down the edge on those banks across from Lincoln Center was so wild. Video by Brandon Stepanow.

An extended dive into the last days of Muni + a Pyramid Ledge banger (into the construction!) in Kiernan McGinnis’ “Budget Junglizm” part that feels adjacent to the Sabotage universe.

Quinn Batley dropped a quick mini part for Melodi.

Carhartt WIP’s ‘PRECIOUS’ Video Is Now Live

Carhartt WIP’s follow-up to 2022’s Inside Out is now live. While that one was entirely filmed on Euro trips, Precious is a half New York / half L.A. production featuring an ever-expanding team that now includes Eddie Cernicky, Jackie Michel, Ewing Ayala, Noah Mahieu, Tanner Burzinski (who fits right in as the team’s one and only tech lord) and more.

Don’t know what’s more surprising: the fact that the Joseph Campos bank on Water Street is just a “spot” now, or that people are still finding tricks to do on the Mraz bank-to-hubba in The Bronx? Eddie Cernicky steals the show on both.

Someday Monday

“[The Muni benches] were going to get sent it to a yard where they grind up concrete and granite, but we were able to save them. They stacked them up one day and they had left a pallet jack out, so we used it to move it into another area with some smooth ground…So we saved six benches in total and they’re currently in a storage unit.” Brian Panebianco has a new interview with Heckride.

Constantly Thankful made a video recap of Late Nite Stars’ O premiere from a few weeks ago, which includes a pre-main event interview with Alan Bell.

Dalton Palacio and the 700k crew just dropped a promo for their upcoming video, Mahogany. (For all the handwringing that olds do about not “getting” the music that the youngs are listening to — it’s funny how the youngs are just editing their skate videos to …Gang Starr. See also: The last Crazy Ass Paterson Skaters edit.)

Turning the Page

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.
