Michael Breitmaier’s Rochester scene video and follow-up to 2020’s Heirloom is now online in full. (To our less local friends: Rochester, New York is about a 5 1/2 hour drive from New York City.)
Memoir is almost entirely filmed in western upstate New York (sans a San Juan clip here and there), eschewing any compulsion to road trip out to Brand Name Spots™ in the big city or beyond — look no further than the mini montage dedicated to skating a crusty parking lot ledge behind a building peppered with melting snow piles.

“Summer Trip to New York” season has obviously been affected by COVID travel bans, yet it has not full-on stopped skate travel into the city. It’s a really interesting time to visit New York, and videos from right now will stand out a lot down the line. Can’t tell where these dudes are from, but enjoyed every bit of “Pull Up,” a new nine-minute trip edit from Juan Reyna. (They got the memo that Times Square is fun right now.)
“The one thing that has stuck out in my mind from early on was that clip of you backflipping off the Love Park sign after that contest. What the hell were you thinking?” Josh Stewart interviewed the forever inspirational Jahmal Williams for Germany’s Solo magazine.
