Kicked Out of Nowhere

Scumco seems to be shutting its doors. “Fading into oblivion” is how they worded it. Boards + more are on sale on their webstore if you’re looking for one last ride ❤️

Better late than never! Thrasher uploaded the edit of Tyshawn’s S.O.T.Y. trip to Australia from last year after it being stuck in music rights limbo forever. The footage of the backside flip from the cover is so nuts. Co-starring Will Jones.

Tipping Points is a sick upstate New York-based video by Taryn Ward with parts from Japhey Dow, Justin + Nate Grzechowiak, Jonny Goupil, and more.

Nico Marti made a 35-minute bro-cam video in the Krooked Gnaughty mode alongside his crew filming for Late Nite Stars’ O video.

It’s All on U

“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.

‘ab’ — Alan Bell’s New Part For Late Nite Stars by Nico Marti

The element of surprise is becoming tougher to come by in skate videos. It’s a numbers game: with simply more skaters scouring more spots and more videographers to document them, there’s more talent covering the bases of what makes us yell at our screens in disbelief.

Alan Bell, however, has been a leading purveyor of surprises lately. Whether it’s hopping a curb that slices a giant bank into two halves in “It’s All Good,” the video game combo heelflip heard ’round the internet from “Be Honest,” or the Allen Street kickflip that we discussed earlier this week — there’s a consistent thread of “what the actual fuck” running through it all.

In Alan’s latest part — put together by Nico Marti for Late Nite Stars — he uncovers a new approach to the knobs at Verizon banks barely two weeks removed from Mr. Palmer front blunting them, backside flips across one of New York’s burgeoning egg spots, and just when you think you’re about to be treated to the elusive triple replay of a trick, you get one last surprise as the curtains close ;)

“Fixed the spot, made it doable, and then did it.” The Warm-Up Zone (the proto-4Ply) still clocks into the office once a year for a Fred Gall recap. It may be March, and well past our cut-off for end-of-the-year wrap-up content, but it is, after all… Fred: the 2022 Freddy Year in Review.

Nico Marti, Trung Ngyen, Alan Bell, Zak Anders + pretty much the whole RESPECTFULLY squad spent some time in L.A. and came back with a 14-minute winter getaway edit.
