Bronx O.G. and Papi Brand capo Angel Fonseca has a new part out entitled “No Need For Closure.” Love the night clips, love the deep spot digging, and always an inspiration 🫡

Decent bit of New York footage + an ender in Heitor Da Silva’s new part for Adidas.

Carson Reuther has a great six-minute Philly edit out featuring Brian O’Dwyer, Matt Militano, Kevin Liedtke + more to commemorate the closing of Fairman’s Skateshop, which shut its doors several weeks ago. 47 years has got to be the longest running American skate shop, right? Anyone have another? (Guessing it’s in California, if so?)

Nothing Boosts Crew Morale Quite Like A Later Sunset

Thrasher‘s “This Old Ledge” series with Ted Barrow is back, this time in New York. The first episode is about the Brooklyn Banks. Forgot about that Austyn ollie — so nuts.

Jack Greer put Circles in Tompkins Square, his doc / slice of life video that was filmed while hanging out at T.F. every single day in 2016, live on his YouTube page. Even the Tompkins of eight years ago feels like it is on an absolutely different planet.

Rory Milanes and Danny Brady filmed a joint part in Catania, Sicily to commemorate their new shoe for Vans. The fact that Brady just goes to Sicily whenever he needs to get a bunch of footage fast is a beautiful thing. He’s been doing it since his welcome to Palace part.

Antonio Durao & Hjalte Halberg Sk8 For Hardbody

Boards available now 💪

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.
