Max Palmer got the Pocket “Followed” treatment as they …followed him from his home, to his studio, to Fort Green Park, and then to pizza ❤️ Might be the first or second time many people are hearing Max talk.
Richie Blackshaw has a new part for Metal Skateboards via Vague — full of New Jersey crust and a Fred Gall-ian eye for spots. That 5-0 pivot down the edge on those banks across from Lincoln Center was so wild. Video by Brandon Stepanow.
An extended dive into the last days of Muni + a Pyramid Ledge banger (into the construction!) in Kiernan McGinnis’ “Budget Junglizm” part that feels adjacent to the Sabotage universe.
Quinn Batley dropped a quick mini part for Melodi.
“What even is Hardbody? They don’t post on Instagram!” Yeah, well, they have a fire new website with a bunch of things to do on it besides buy shit, while your other favorite company’s entire existence is dependent on an IG page. Take your destiny out of Mark Zuckerberg’s hands. Make a website. The past is future. The future is today! Designed by Peter Sidlauskas.
“I’m still in New York doing the same shit I was like, six, seven years ago and that’s what I want to keep doing. I want to keep lurking around here and finding shit and seeing how it keeps changing.” Monster Children has an interview with Naquan Rollings.
Jenkem and Greg Navarro took the Asics team around during an autumn New York day. Includes appearances from Joey Marrone, Kyota Umeki, Evan Wasser and Zander Mitchell.
Coda uploaded a standalone edition of Tony Farmer’s EP part.
“Leftover and lost footage, glitched tapes, steady shot on, broken mic, windshield lens, and other angles.” Paul Coots uploaded a twenty-minute, black-and-white raw reel of outtakes from The HIT Video, which dropped this time, two years ago. Heavy on the Max clips, obvs. Rumor has it that Coots is working on a sequel! 🤞
Transworld, which apparently has the rights to the 411VM archive (or something to that effect, idk), revived the video magazine’s “Spot Check” featurette for a modern version. The first installment is shot by Mike Sass and checks out Borough Hall, covering every corner from the micro curved ledge to the tall ‘n short handrails.
Lee Madden and the Orchard crew put together a 2013-2023 retrospective edit of Brian Reid’s footage on account of him joining the pro ranks ❤️
Greg Szudzik and Ben Patrick’s shared part in Dana Ross’ Purpose video is live. You can buy the video in full via Dana’s webstore.
Do you have $99,000 lying around? Want to own a skatepark [a lil’ over an hour from the city]? Peekskill’s 2nd Nature park is for sale. No cybermonday promo code for that though ;)
The promo for the upcoming Late Nite Stars full-length video went live last week. (Yes, a Trung sighting is included.)
Shari White made a new 11-minute edit called “Gleek / Blueberries,” featuring a solid chunk of Dustin Henry footage + appearances from Una, Breana, Nelly, Stafhon, Shealy, Chandler Burton and a mini curtains section from Evan Wasser.

“I hate to lean on this clichéd-ass targeted-ad-ass assertion, but skateboarding is a global support system.” Zach Baker wrote a trip article about an Alltimers trip to Medellín for Thrasher. The video + Joel Meinholz’s photography from it are all included 🇨🇴 Somebody bring Tom Knox to that first plaza.
Known goat, Jawn Gardner, empties and shreds an abandoned pool in Bridgewater, NJ that was built during the Eisenhower administration, and skated as far back as the mid-80s — while giving us a nice history lesson in the process 🐐
Ron Allen is 60 years old 🤯
Joe Buffalo has a new part out for his Anti-Hero guest board. If you don’t know about Joe, please watch the New Yorker mini doc about him from 2021.
