#QSTOP10 — February 21, 2020

We’re never in the market for 5050 kickflips (though have written about *one* before…), but that particular 5050 kickflip was fucked. We won’t be shopping around for another one until 2040, thanks.

And the WKND video is quite great, yes. That Japan section towards the end feels like something from a mid-period 411 in the best way possible. Grant even used a classic Project Pat song. #musicsupervision is easy if you remember crunk ain’t dead ;)

Usually try to make these things from a mix of sources, but it was one of those weeks when Thrasher had most of the good stuff. Give the Razor video out of Australia a whirl if you’re looking for something a bit less ~obvious~. Could’ve included way more shit from it if it weren’t one of those weeks with 25 suggestions for the countdown on the office whiteboard.

And not only is the best skate meme of 2020 another Drake one (see bottom for 2019) — @shrimpdaddy on IG elevated it to another level. Thanks for all the laughs in these trying times.

Happy Rihanna’s Birthday, everyone ♥

EDIT: #5 is Sam Sutton.

#QSTOP10 — February 14, 2020

We went from one-word part and video names dominating the past five years to even simpler times. New part? Let’s call it “Bob.” Let’s call it “Shin.” Do people only know your Instagram name? Let’s use your ….real name. It’s stressful enough living in these last days (before you see “Mikey Taylor’s ‘Bloomberg 2020’ part premiering tomorrow” in our dystopian hell) without having to come up with some long-winded part title that you explain in an interview ;) Raise some money to clean the oceans instead, yaknow?

POP Clip mainstay, Billy Hoogendijk’s new video “Cabrio Enterprise” gets a nod for “good video you may have missed” in a week full of parts from QS office favorites — Max, Shin, Bobby DeKeyzer, etc.

Happy Valentine’s Day y’all

#QSTOP10 — February 7, 2020

The real highlight from the skate community this week is obviously Kyota’s first attempt at fare evasion, but that already got #hardposted. We opted for last month’s subway highlight for an intro this week, in case you forgot ;)

Russia is #trending hard in 2020. For real though, you should watch the Planeta Patsanov video on Thrasher if you have yet to do so. About half the clips here are from it, and it truly feels unlike anything else out there right now.
