QS Top 10 – January 25, 2019

One of those weeks with a fairly obvious #1, though it somehow didn’t transcend into Trick Heard Around the World™ territory (tbh, it would probably benefit from a long lens angle, but oh well.) People in New York get it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Not sure what our Detroit area readership is like these days, but we built some obstacles for the Detroit House of Vans pop-up going on this weekend. We’ll be there with Alltimers, LQQK, Quasi, Community Push, and The Trilogy Tapes. Stop by if you’re around ♥ 938 Seldon Street.

Yeah, the Bannerot trick from the Thrasher cover is wild, but we can’t say no to two stylish flip tricks in a row with no push between them. But OBVIOUSLY, all skate content on the internet paled in comparison to the Soulja Boy interview. Draaake? Draaaaaake?

EDIT: The unnamed #10 is Daniel Ledermann.

QS Top 10 — January 11, 2019

Lil’ late today. So sorry for the wait.

UPDATE: #10 & 7 are Zane Timson, #4 is Kayl Johnson.

Need some help on the names. A lot of the clips came from the Stay Awaysted video out of S.F, and that thing only has names for people in the credits. We didn’t have a Bay Area agent in the field to reach out to for help ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Sometimes, I see comments like this one on Josh Wilson’s Brooklyn Tompkins Park video (the intro for this week’s countdown), and realize that the “this music sucks…wait, you guys actually like Rihanna?” comments we’ve been getting on YouTube for the past ~ten years aren’t even that bad. Sorry andythepoet420 ;) Talk that talk to me yeah.

QS Top 10 — January 4, 2019

2019! Happy New Year. This edition encompasses both this past week and the week before. We were able to finagle a post-Christmas Top 10 in 2017, but for 2018, it seems like the skateboard internet collectively agreed to slow it down.

No clue who #5 is, and though nothing from it made the countdown, “It’s Not A Fridge It’s A Fucking Club” is the best name for a web montage of 2019. Nice sprint ahead on not giving videos one-word titles anymore. Have a good weekend ♥

QS Top 10 — December 21, 2018

That big flip at #1 is actually probably the best big flip ever. Obvs the video isn’t out, but the loop has been rocking on IG all week.

The year in review got put on a slight hiatus due to a snag — sorry about that. December has been a mess around here. #sketchymonth, after all.
