A New Dick Rizzo & Paul Young Link-Up… in Glorious Hi-8

Dick Rizzo parts always contain their share of Easter egg nods to east coast skate history — whether it’s Mother‘s Bobbito shout-out and splice of The Photosynthesis Hamburger™ or Grand Prairie‘s desaturated, largely flip trick-less pursuit of spots that would’ve fit into a would-be Eastern Exposure 4.

And his latest, with Paul Young behind the lens + editing deck (Down By Law due out 2023!), stretches these nods into an entire concept. In other words, it’s a 2022 skate part that could seamlessly fit into a VHS tape of Peep This or opened any nineties Real video, and it comes with that glorious Hi-8 audio that P-Rod was talking about.

Hit You Off Management Presents… ‘Museum of Sex’

When the city began to shut down last spring — before anybody knew wtf was about to happen — skateboarders all had the same thought, and they all wound up at Big Screen Plaza.

Soon, the hotel decided “Fuck this,” boarded the entire park off, and left it like that to this day.

Skateboard endeavors moved northward towards CBS, which was heavily featured in John’s Vid (a video that simultaneously feels like it came out three months ago and three years ago), until that spot got knobbed.

It turns out that the real party was at the Museum all along — a spot that 4Ply learned was the most frequent #QSTOP10-featured New York spot in 2020. Considering there has been a generation (two?) of skateboarders who have not experienced a period of the Museum being a go, it’s no wonder everyone flocked there to take advantage of the glitch.

Paul Young logged some heavy hours there this past spring and summer, and came back with this edit featuring Mark Humienik, Joe Russo, Nick Ferro, Vin Perso, Joseph Delgado, German Nieves, Ben Tenner, Myles Underwood, Dana Ericson and Dick Rizzo.
