Max Palmer got the Pocket “Followed” treatment as they …followed him from his home, to his studio, to Fort Green Park, and then to pizza ❤️ Might be the first or second time many people are hearing Max talk.
Richie Blackshaw has a new part for Metal Skateboards via Vague — full of New Jersey crust and a Fred Gall-ian eye for spots. That 5-0 pivot down the edge on those banks across from Lincoln Center was so wild. Video by Brandon Stepanow.
An extended dive into the last days of Muni + a Pyramid Ledge banger (into the construction!) in Kiernan McGinnis’ “Budget Junglizm” part that feels adjacent to the Sabotage universe.
Quinn Batley dropped a quick mini part for Melodi.

We have our first one-spot video of 2024! Kurt Havens filmed a video entirely at the Abraham Lincoln statue in Prospect Park to show the world how much joy and creativity could be extracted from an innocuous patch of smooth stone in the middle of a big, green park. It has been added to the QS One-Spot Part Map 📍🐢
“The ConEd Banks sit quietly near the entrance to a mysterious 300-acre parcel of land that has been a site of energy, pollution, and controversy for over 100 years.” Village Psychic wrote the history of the ConEd Banks, which has a strong crossover with the New York hardcore scene of the 1980s. (Before anyone asks, yes we have looked into doing a “Favorite Spot” with Zered about it, but the consensus seemed to be that the footy was too scattered.)
Paris De Noche is the new video from Naquan Rollings filmed in New York, Philly and Paris, with standout clips from Jahmir Brown and Carl Aikens.
“What even is Hardbody? They don’t post on Instagram!” Yeah, well, they have a fire new website with a bunch of things to do on it besides buy shit, while your other favorite company’s entire existence is dependent on an IG page. Take your destiny out of Mark Zuckerberg’s hands. Make a website. The past is future. The future is today! Designed by Peter Sidlauskas.
“I’m still in New York doing the same shit I was like, six, seven years ago and that’s what I want to keep doing. I want to keep lurking around here and finding shit and seeing how it keeps changing.” Monster Children has an interview with Naquan Rollings.
Jenkem and Greg Navarro took the Asics team around during an autumn New York day. Includes appearances from Joey Marrone, Kyota Umeki, Evan Wasser and Zander Mitchell.
Coda uploaded a standalone edition of Tony Farmer’s EP part.
Something for the mansion-having sauna soakers out there: Naquan Rollings has a new, mostly New York montage out, entitled “$$$four.” Neil Herrick’s double-bar 5050 on the Manhattan side of the Queensboro Bridge bikepath is so sick. Saw marks on it early this summer and wondered if anything besides a bonk had been done.
The Say You Swear podcast chatted with Bronze mastermind, Peter Sidlauskas, for over two hours in their latest episode.
Jahmal Williams is the latest subject of Lookback Library’s cover discussions series, recounting his memories of three different covers, from three different decades.
Stu Kirst rides for Baker.

“h” is a new, eighteen-minute homie video by Blaine Williams that’s mainly filmed in New York, with a sick part from Aidan Spencer to close it out. The fact the Polish Park planter-side ledges have endured for so long despite having three-feet of landing space is reason enough to never give up on your dreams ❤️
Casper Brooker has a great interview over on the Angel & Z podcast.
“So it was a little bit of everything: disappointment in myself, a little bit of wanting to try something new, and a lot of not thinking about it.” Spanky speaks about reinventing the way he skates and approaches video parts in the latest installment of Village Psychic + Ian Browning’s “Rules of Skateboarding” series. Spanky was also a recent guest on the How Long Gone podcast.
