No Monday Links this week. Sorry :(

As you might have devised from various social media presences, we are in France. Need a break from the computer, and QS has always been a desktop and iPhone-based enterprise. No laptops on this side.

Btw Republique is every bit as chill as everyone says it is. Like, if all you demand from a skate spot is good ground, a low ledge, girls walking around, and maybe a sewer cap in the ground to do tricks over, it’s better than anything in Barcelona or Shenzhen.

Be back in a week. Stuff originating from this Parisian excursion should surface online later in the summer, depending on how productivity goes. If you placed an order on the webstore in the past week-and-a-half, it won’t ship for another few days. Basically, if you don’t have a shipping confirmation in the e-mail that you used at checkout, your order has not shipped yet. Sorry for the delays. You should know we run a janky operation anyway. Everything remaining in the webstore is on sale, too. Support your local skate site.

We were going to post some #relevant French skate clips…but if you visit this site enough, you’ve heard us wax on about Lucas Puig self-releasing the best skateboard media in existence. Click around the Helas YouTube channel if you’re bored.

Or stare at this Wes Kremer switch back 3 from Palais de Tokyo instead:

Once you’ve exhausted that, stare at this Jason Byoun GIF for a few minutes:

Have a good week. Check for updates in a day or two, we got stuff scheduled ;)

Sorry, no Monday Links this week. If you haven’t gathered as much from Instagram, we are out of the country right now. Part of it is because we simply wanted to check out a country that would let Shawn Powers onto its soil, but perhaps more importantly, it is a trip dedicated to negotiating the reignited Quartersnacks-Green Diamond beef on neutral, foreign land. We’re in Germany for another day or so, then headed back to the U.K. Hopefully, a mediated negotiation in Zurich will not be required.

A few updates are still scheduled throughout this coming week, including a really good one for Friday. And to reiterate, all web store orders placed after July 25th will not be shipped until August 7th. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

And since the real reason we’re out here is to see the best skateboarder besides Mike Carroll get married to a great girl, check out his Canadian opus from the 2004 Baby Steps video. See everyone in a week. Later.

Check the part’s equally good B-roll here. R.I.P. Big Moe.
