#QSTOP10 — February 19, 2021

Much like the vibe outside, it has been a slog over here at QS International HQ this past week or so. No, actually, it feels like the year in general is off to quite a slow start — hate hate hate when the only front-page updates are Monday Links + Top 10, but c’est la vie.

Content is coming! And if there’s one thing the internet doesn’t have enough of, it’s content ;)

The greater general skateboard media ecosystem continues to operate in hyperdrive. We might have our first “Trick Heard Around the World” of the year, which was preceded by the hipper heard around the world. Much like the Jarne flowerpot ender, sometimes the slam before can really propel a trick into another dimension. Audibly gasped the second time seeing that (first goes without saying.)

Pretty much every individual video linked in the original clips is worth watching in full. Have a good one ♥

The past weeks and really months have made these “ten things to get you hyped”-segments tougher and tougher to narrow down without inadvertently excluding so many incredible projects (this got made before the Santa Cruz vid went live on Thrasher, which people seem to have great reviews of so far.) Shout out to everyone making videos yaknow ♥

Keep your heads up, it’s fuckin’ bleak out there right now, but we’ll make it. Have a good one.

#QSTOP10 — February 5, 2021

This week was yet another impossible to narrow down week. There were great videos ranging from Poland to Portland that didn’t even get caught in time before the filing deadline :(

Jon Colyer’s Sanitizer video is incredible, and just adds to the growing volume of great local videos that have already dropped this year. It also gives us a reminder of how profoundly fucked Matt Beach’s Can’t Stop ender line from 2003 (!) is.
