Lots of Brazilians, lots of Euros + obviously LOOOUUUUUU, and T.J. skating in what are essentially Yeezy Crocs.
Lucien Genand’s “Boardslide Hood” part on Free rules 🤯
Heavy on the Euros this week. Have a good one ❤️
EDIT: #6 is TJ Rogers, not Ben Paterson.
Was honestly tempted to put Tenzin’s nollie big heel at Tompkins at #1 this week just to fuck with all the people who absolutely lost it in the YouTube + IG comments last year over Jack O’Grady’s cover 5050 getting #2.
But yeah. The most #1 of #1’s. If you ask a room full of skaters to list three tricks that they would’ve previously never have thought of as possible, it’s on there for a lot of them.
A Violet catch-up week, sorcery on curved ledges, a boned out ollie by Bone Stallone, and an exemplary crook shove.
Yes, now the Baker video was deferred until next week. So much going on!
Can’t imagine Heitor’s part not being considered one of the year’s best by the time we reach awards / QS Readers Poll season. Wow.
YES, the Violet video was deferred until next week in the interest of not posting a recap of the most oft-discussed project of the past 36 hours…36 hours later.
Anyway, who doesn’t love a long line 🤝
…or a really long 180 switch crook, for that matter?
Frankly, this one could’ve been filed on like… Sunday? Wild week. But that’s Hollywood, baby!
