“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.

It seems that the impossible has happened: we’ve tallied a QS Readers Poll, and there’s no Tom Knox in sight 😲😲😲
All jokes aside, beyond light output from Mr. Knox in 2022, this is perhaps the year that the multiple part approach wielded by S.O.T.Y. hopefuls began to adapt itself to people’s recollections of the past twelve months. Whereas in past years, when multiple releases tended to split the vote in clear favor of one over another, 50% of this year’s Top 20 parts are from the same five people.
Also worth noting that the point spread between slot #14 and slot #10 for single parts was four points. Maybe we introduce a runoff feature next year ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
The #1 video was a landslide.
If you are just joining us, this ranking was voted on by QS readers from December 5th to December 9th ✨
In many ways, 2022 was a benchmark year where so many definitive things turned ten. Everything from Labor to Tinder to Bronze to Jenkem to Bill’s first-ever edit with Tyshawn for Supreme have been with us for a decade now.
Things keep changing, time keeps flying, and we’re back to keep a lil’ inventory of it all.
ICYMI: The D.O.A. dudes have a new edit and tribute video out for their friend Drew Grabowski ❤️
Nollies into flatscreen TVs, noseslides on boat boards, and a dumpster-adjacent spot that’ll inevitably send group texts scouring “where is this?!” in Neema Joorabchi’s “feast your eyes” edit featuring all the dudes from the Til It’s Gone video.
Joe Cups uploaded a reel of Alex Olson, Jason Dill and Anthony Pappalardo kicking around Manhattan back in 2004.

In case you’ve been under a rock since last Monday, Neema Joorabachi’s Til It’s Gone video is online in full.
“Oh, I definitely wasn’t cool enough for Zoo York back then. I was just some weirdo out on Long Island.” Long Islander, Frank Gerwer, is the latest to get Chromeballed. Frank’s Number Nine part from 1995 is a great lil’ time capsule.
