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.

#QSTOP10 — Best of 2018

Man, this coffee tastes like shit.

As the case with last year, we tried to suspend some of our personal biases and wrestle with the oldest dilemma of the social media age: what tricks will be remembered? The Top 10 for a year is a non-mathematical assessment of what clips got people talking. It’s easy to double tap and forget, but a whole different level of #impact when you talk about something with a fellow human, preferably IRL.

These are the tricks that humans talked about the most these past twelve months around our corridors. Maybe it’s different around the country, maybe it’s different just down the street, but we can only speak for ourselves here ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Mandatory seven minutes of bullshit at the beginning, ~obviously~.

Mega week for two-trick lines, and we have a countdown first where the #1 slot is awarded to someone behind the camera. (If you saw the clip, you already know which one it is hehe.) Shout out to Bobby D’s fakie flip. Have a good one.

Obvs the only S.O.T.Y. clips from “BLESSED” eligible for the countdown at this point in time are the ones Thrasher released in their quick recap video.

Any help on the unknown Adidas South America riders is appreciated.

Part one of the year in review countdown up shortly ;)

QS Top 10 — November 30, 2018

Apologies for a few duds of news weeks over here over this past month. (I think a certain nollie flip overtook pretty much all else in the skateboard news cycle.) Things should ramp back up as we approach end of the year content season + have a few other developments left for 2018, and obvs a chunk of nice fun things percolating for 2019.

Have a good one. Low sixties on Sunday :)
