It’s Only a Movie — Limosine Skateboards’ ‘Paymaster’ Video

Over the past year, those who traffick in skate rumors have been possessed by the question of where the roster of the 917 team would land. The lead rumor was that they all went off to start their own endeavor.

There are few videos held in as high esteem around the QS office as the first two 917 projects, so we are pleased to report that much of the line-up has stuck together — Logan behind the lens and edit included — to bring you Limosine Skateboards, and their first video, Paymaster. Nelly Morville, Santino Gagliarducci and Karim Callender are the new additions. (Stoked on there being a team with a Nelly and a Genny on it 😎)

The 2021 Quartersnacks Year in Review: 25-16

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.

As we do every year, thus begins our [mostly] scene-specific Top 25 countdown of things that defined the past twelveish months.

Quick Lil’ Trip Edit — Carhartt WIP DMV Mix

Photo by Paul Coots

So it snowed today. It sucked. It also means that anybody’s northeastern skateboard pursuits are on borrowed time.

Below is an edit put together by Ryan Mettz — of first part in The Hit Video fame, yes — from a quick trip down to Baltimore and Washington D.C. that comprised of Max, DREWWWWWWW, Mecca, and Enzo. The latter two both got injured early on in the journey, but you can catch Enzo in The LC Video and Mecca in Group Chat.

It just snowed though. Great time to heal up ❤️

Max Palmer: The Video A.K.A. Paul Coots’ ‘HIT’ Video

A colleague remarked that months ago, he had driven past the red Navy Yard Philly step, saw a disconfigured piece of wood up to it, and knew that it had to be a Max Palmer concoction — despite there being no skaters in sight. (That spot is also the headline image for the first Max part QS ever posted in 2011.) He was right.

The Hit Video is the year-plus in the making project by Paul Coots, a principal architect behind the BSA videos. At the premiere on Saturday night, drunkards [remembered this was actually Max Hull’s quote and he wasn’t that buzzed ♥] lovingly dubbed it “basically Max Palmer’s Wonderful horrible life.” It feels like a warm VX throwback to the sideyard era of Johnny Wilson videos, with cameos from Cyrus, DREEWWWWWWW, Conor (!) and even John Choi (!!!) along the way.

Favorite Spot With Max Palmer on the Canal Fountain

Since starting the “Favorite Spot” series, there has been one skater + spot combo that has been requested above all the rest. And with the fifth installment (second local spot in a row!), we are proud to present Max Palmer and the Canal Fountain — or just “the fountain spot,” or what we have even lovingly renamed “Max Palmer Park” on the spots page.

(FWIW, it’s technically called Albert Capsouto Park, but nobody has ever called it that. Probably not even Al’s family.)

So, this one needs no further introduction. Max is a man of sparse words (in most cases, not all), and we’re all grateful he was down to talk about this absolute mess of a spot.

Biggest thank you goes to Johnny obvs, but shout out to everybody who contributed their footy ♥
