The elusive Geo Moya sighting + a Leo Heinert Pyramid Ledges banger in the new promo for Rodney Torres’ Torro Skateboards brand.
“Money flies.” Felipe Munhoz is the latest subject of Skate Jawn‘s “$100 Chill” feature, shot in the waning days of the O.G. Tompkins flat. He makes everything look way too easy.
Melodi has a quick new New York edit featuring Quinn Batley, Alan Bell, and Kyler Garrison. (Did you hear the barricades are gone at the East Broadway and Division manny pad?)
Frog Skateboards shared an extended 10+ minute raw reel of Chris Milic’s footage from Daniel Dent’s 2020 video, With The Apple.
Insta loosie comps have been like 20% of what gets posted on here in recent years (media landcape ‘n shit, yaknow), but this one rules: someone mashed together 11 minutes of Steel McAdam and Coles Bailey Insta loosies. Obvs biased, but can’t wait ’til both of them are pro ❤️
We’re all on the same page that Keith having his name and face on a Tech Deck is maybe a bigger life hammer than him having his name and face on an actual skateboard, right? What a time to be alive.
Anthony Pappalardo the Writer interviewed Amy Ellington about KCDC, twenty years in Williamsburg, and running the longest-operating female-owned skate shop in the United States. (Also a former employer of the aforementioned Keith!)
Bronze’s Christmas mix will warm your heart and make you smile ♥ Maybe the funniest one yet. Shout out Lindsey Robertson’s Bagels. It was a good run.
Notable snow content is as follows, choose your player: Kyota Umeki, MITCH, Alexis Lacroix.
This final stretch of the year has typically meant there was some sort of QS winter getaway in the cards after New Year’s, but you know… pandemic, etc. Instead, let’s travel ~*VIRTUALLY*~ with these recent features… 1) Skate spots in the Swiss alps with Irregular, 2) The Cuban skate scene with Skateism, 3) Marble relics of the Soviet Union with Free.
Alexis Sablone has a two-hour (!) interview with The Bunt, along with a new one over on Monster Children.

ICYMI: A message from Tyshawn Jones ♥
Christian Kerr is selling prints from a 2017 visit to Lebanon in order to fundraise for disaster relief in Beirut.
Our family at NJ Skateshop spent a lot of time at the Hebrew Hideout D.I.Y. spot, and they have a new “Freddy & Friends” edit of that time over on Thrasher.
Salomon Cardenas, Etienne Gagne + Jason Byoun share a part in the Frog video, Killer Skaters 2.
The first one-spot part of the decade: Sergio Rodas and Brian Douglas share a section entirely filmed at Scudder Plaza A.K.A. the Princeton University spot. It’s crazy how no matter what talk there is about the decline of plaza spots in the U.S., post-Love skateboarding on the east coast has coincided with a surge in footage from here, Empire State Plaza, Everson, etc. — all of which went largely under-covered in the two decades prior.
