“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.
Brian Reid is pro! Wooooooo! Long overdue ❤️ Photo by Jake Darwen via Brian’s Thunder ad in the December 2023 Thrasher.
MARONE, the Bay Area-based video starring a bunch of New Jersey homies by Paul Overstrom and Ryan Burge, is now live in full on Skate Jawn — alongside an interview with its creators.
INT3RDIM3NSIONS is the new video by Nova World Order and Chris Patti. Entirely filmed in New York and features sections from Jose Zapatero, Luca Mayer and an ender part from Pat Hoblin full of cutty spots only for the mentally strong (that polejam shuv out to grate landing…)
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.

Destroyed skater jeans. Pre-order now. $1,290. And here we were fretting about having raised the price of QS tees by $2 ☺️
“Forced into the wilderness for years first by cords, then by Dickies, Carharts and assorted chinos, jeans now are the stuff of kingdom-making and eternal glory.” And on that very same note, Boil the Oceans offers some analysis on how jeans have climbed to become the north star of the skateboard industry.
Leo Heinert + crew blitzed Black Hubba and threw a big contest on it a week ago. Flipping into a crook on that thing is nuts.
Boil the Ocean’s piece on Revolutions on Granite — the Ukrainian skate scene documentary that went live on Thrasher earlier this month — sums up the power of those 40 minutes in a way that every skateboard writer wishes they could.
Fake puke is expensive. Pryce gave a bunch of the backstories behind a lot of the best Alltimers boards for Solo Skate Mag. Yes, he met Marisa Tomei after they did that cruiser. Yes, she was hyped on it. Like the old proverb goes: “Nobody has a crush on anybody the way men born in the 80s have a crush on Marisa Tomei.”
Shopping carts and bicycle wheels are the new skatestopper. Hosea Peters has a new part entirely filmed in New York.
Throw some old King Louie shit on and watch these 15 minutes of Louie Lopez loosies.
