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.

It’s Like Zero Bond, But With A Mini Ramp

HARD DRIVE is a New Haven, Connecticut scene video from the younger generation gyrating around Plush Skateshop. We have a soft spot for CT videos on here in general, but this one is very special. It makes a small(ish) city like New Haven feel like a big city scene and a small town all at once, full of night footage and the sort of third-eye-open spots you find when traversing the same hometown back lots over and over. No names, no info, but it rules. Last dude rips.

Most Wanted” is the latest bi-coastal edit from Crazy Ass Paterson Skaters. Ross’ kickflip front 5050 was 10/10.

The O.G. Tompkins bench is at the Star Team Shop.

BARRIO” is a new, all-Bronx edit from the Hunny Dip NYC crew. Kickflip back tail on one of those planter rails is a wild thing to try 💪

Some Dump on Seigel Street

Kevin Rodrigues by Alex Pires • 2016

Another Tompkins Construction Date Change: The park is now being closed off for renovations and re-asphalting on Monday, October 2nd, exactly one week from today. (And the deli across the street isn’t even a deli anymore, as of a few days ago: they got rid of the entire counter for a mini smoke shop. No more sandwiches, grill or smoothies. End of an era.)

“Mainstream skateboarding finally caught on to the fact that when you’re driving to the spot, you’re passing all this other stuff that’s so much more interesting. Stuff people can skate more creatively. And you can make a far more interesting skate video by focusing on that.” New Zealand’s Manual magazine caught up with Josh Stewart to talk about putting himself through another Static video.

“BURNT” is the latest montage by Christian Kerr, featuring the continued evolution of Gabe Tennen’s tech-lord career arc, and the return of the Duane Reade benches.

“There also might be a slight difference in the value of technicality. I think a nollie crook means more to us out here than it may out west to you.” Heckride has a #longform interview with the man behind the lens of many of your favorite clips, Paul Young.

“Then I counted Tyshawn’s part and he only has 32 tricks in Blessed which was his S.O.T.Y. part. It made me realize that it’s not necessarily the quantity of tricks that makes a part good.” Korahn Gayle chats about some of his biggest influences for Slam City Skates’ “Visuals” series.

Can’t imagine many local residents are bummed about this, but something for the “Summer Trip to New York” video-makers to keep in mind: you’re not gonna have an easy time getting an Airbnb in New York.
