The Static series built its reputation on going against the grain. Its inaugural 1999 video spotlit the talent sitting under the Florida sun when everyone else was chasing the California Transworld dream. Static II solidified a path through the crust and diamond-plate when everyone else was horny for Barcelona marble. Static IV + V doubled-down on the full-length’s viability when the rest of skateboarding was all-in on the trend of calling it dead. (Apologies for not coming up with a nod for Static III, but it’s honestly the one I’ve watched the least.)
“Trust me, I tried to shoot it without getting down there.” New York magazine’s real-estate publication, Curbed, interviewed Atiba for a feature about Tyshawn’s Thrasher cover kickflip. (Though, based on some more precise intel, the gap definitely seems to be more than nine feet as outlined in the above article.)
Cooper Winterson’s new video, The Sex Emo Promo is half filmed around the vicinity of Cadman Plaza, and includes appearances from Nelly Morville, Evan Wasser, and a bunch more.
Speaking of Wasser, him and Nick Michel’s Frog for Thunder Trucks part by Daniel Dent is beautiful.
There’s no part like a hometown part (or, let’s say home state part), and Jordan’s latest is a de facto sequel to his section in Broth, the New Orleans full-length that dropped late 2020.
Released by Ace (“ride these trucks or you’ll fucking die“) and under the direction of Broth videographer Charles Johnson, New Orleans skating always feels wholly of its own world — making the most of their scene, in a place truly unlike anywhere else in America. Had a chance to visit that Crescent Park pier they all skate over the holidays, and that wood ground demands an level of precision that you can only learn by having it be your local.

Could not stop watching this video. Nah, it’s not a skate clip.
Ville has been more than few friends’ favorite skater for a minute now. This 20-minute compilation of loosies should be what you watch if you’re going skating today ❤️
Somebody compiled a half-hour of Instagram clips from all the Bronze dudes.
The New Orleans section from last year’s Skate Jawn video is a lot of fun.

Wait, so Ben Chadourne was Skater of the Year all along? Knew it! Sorry, Keith (and Mark.)
They began demolition on the East River Park Amphitheater last week :( Alligator Ledge is blocked off, but you know, it’s Alligator Ledge 🐊
Something …not good seems to be afoot at Blue Park.
A wild ender on Pyramid Ledges, Tribeca street crossing lines, and newfound FedEx choreography in Jasper Stieve’s incredible new “Visitors” part for Picture Show. Thought it was gonna be the Dua Lipa version of that song for half a sec 😝
