“This skateboard rivalry is getting downright gnarly.” Pretty sure everybody agreed to move on from the A.V.E. bench’s relocation from New York to Philly after a string of memes last week, but then… the New York Post decided it was newsworthy, right down to quotes from A.V.E. and Harry Bergenfield. Didn’t have that one on the 2022 bingo board, that’s for sure…
Had to check into the office real quick on a weekend because last night, Ryan Mettz dropped an edit for Skate Jawn that ticks every one of the QS boxes, and tugs at all of our heartstrings.
“Mettz Quest 2” is a peek behind many of the sessions that shaped John’s Vid, Paul Coots’ HIT Video, and Limosine’s Paymaster. Includes appearances from Cyrus, Karim, Max and them, plus video evidence of the Andrew Wilson back tail behind the Home Depot in Gowanus — the trajectory / physics of which make far less sense IRL than on video, perhaps even less-so now that the building chiseled out the quick-crete job on the barrier. Had trouble explaining that trick to a car of people scoping the spot out once.
Thanks Mettz! New Skate Jawn photo issue out now.
Everyone have a fabulous weekend ❤️
Limosine Skateboards just dropped their first piece of #longform #content since the inaugural Paymaster video from last holiday season (obvs a favorite for 2022* year-end accolades on account of the timing, a la John’s Vid last year.) It includes plenty of fanfare for those who’ve been following these dudes’ path to running their own company: at least a face-shot of everyone you’d expect in a late-period Johnny Wilson HD video blog (Mitchell!), Max Palmer finding a way to pinch a front crook on a ledge that extends two-inches from a wall, and Cyrus bringing this one out of a skatepark and into the streets.
But the real stars are Nelly Morville — Paymaster‘s breakout part who has a whole new one here — and the newly pro Hugo Boserup rocking the best 90s bowl cut since Eric Lloyd.
Over the years, there has been a decent amount of QS discourse about “EuroTech™” and the successor to the seminal European skate document of the roaring 00’s: Lordz’ They Don’t Give A Fuck About Us video.
The irony, of course, is that EuroTech™ was finding itself bumped down into a smaller sub-genre of European skating throughout that same QS coverage — in favor of the type of cutty city-scouring practiced by the generation that came of age on “cherry”, and videos from Palace, Polar and GX.
Carhartt WIP’s first-ever full-length is full of names that will be familiar to anyone who supplements their Thrashersphere diet with videos from Free, Grey, Place, Solo, et al.
