End-of-Summer Viewing: Stefano Kerster’s ‘It’s All Love’ Video

It’s All Love is the new full-length from Stefano Kerster A.K.A. @steffybigpotatoes for those of you who only know people by their IG handles ;)

Filmed over the course of the pandemic (had a thought of like “I forgot there were this many schoolyard spots in the city” while watching it, only to remember they all would’ve been shut down during a lot of the filming), and it features parts from Faheem Allah, Julio Peralta, Mike Powley, Elijah Cole, Alberto Olivero, Gio Ricardo + an ender from Andre Beverly. The entire middle section is a massive montage with plenty of familiar faces, some of whom you might only recognize from seeing around skateparks, only to now bear first witness to them crushing street in this very video.

“‘You had all these planners and architects in the 1950s and 60s saying cities need these grand, celebratory spaces — and they really didn’t.’ But apparently skaters did.” Curbed has an awesome feature about how some odious, post-WWII federal legislation ultimately lead to the creation of the sorts of public plazas that would prove to be the breeding ground of modern skateboarding.

“That might be a trick that’s been done, but it’s done differently…and with different pants on.” Vice has a video profile of Breezy and Una about growing up being two of the few girls skating in Vancouver.

The new Bluecouch edit starts in CT and ends in the city. Some rad stuff in there.

The Finnish guys who made the Hard Water video that went live on the Free site last week actually also put together a trip to New York edit that we only now caught onto. Love a vacation edit when the trees are bare + everyone is still in hoodies, though I’m sure it’s warmer than Helsinki. Also impressed by their cobblestone deterrent that keeps your board from rattling down into Sutton Place traffic.

Maybe it goes through a vigorous off-screen sanitizing process — but one’s bed seems like a bad place to sort through street debris. Anyway, here is an eight-minute glimpse into the life of Bobby Puleo.
