#QSTOP10 — March 15, 2019

The first overly eventful week in the QS universe of 2019 — when’s the last time there were three clips in a row from friends on the front page? 2015?

And because of that, we’re going to nudge you in the direction of “Hope It’s Worth The Watch :)” again (linked it on Monday, but it’s fun, quick, and been on repeat just as much as the the more New York-centric offerings from the week), and Shawn Hale’s “Beautiful Mutants” part — no idea who dude is, but he did a ton of really cool shit with just the right amount of “different” sprinkled on everything. Plus, it’s always nice to watch someone’s part and know what their favorite shirt is by the end ;)

Didn’t know who the Pyramid Country dude at #2 was, sorry. Anyone?

Rest in Peace Jake Phelps

#QSTOP10 — March 8, 2019

Pretty excited for the 7 P.M+ sunset x consistently above 45 degrees collab that is supposed to drop next week.

It was one of those weeks with an obvious #1, where the #4 could’ve been #1 in a slower week. Also, I think we need to start lobbying Ben Chadourne and the powers that be for a “Looks OK To Me Part II” starring Hjalte and Brass on some Odd Couple shit.

CORRECTION: The Jacopo nollie flip crook on the waist high rail at Centrale should’ve been in there. Skateboarding just moves too damn fast 2k47.

#QSTOP10 — March 1, 2019

Greetings, on this first snow day of March :)

Gone are the slow weeks of scouring #MACBALIFE on Instagram in hopes of sliding in one final 10th slot on the countdown. Things seemed to go into hyperdrive in 2019, where there’s barely enough space in a given week to contain everything e.g. we had to snub the Cromer New York part, and the Suciu thing this week (Hudson Street quick ollies should’ve been in there tbh.)

Sorry 4 da wait. Have a good one ♥

QS Top 10 — February 22, 2019…A Sour Solution II Special Edition

We explored the possibility of trying to stuff this eventful week into ten slots, but no — way too much shit went on. If it were any other week, this noseslide would be a clear #1 (yeah, we watch Globe parts in the office…)

Had to pay respect to Sour for creating 2019’s first video that felt like a “moment.” Anybody who skates has had at least half-a-dozen conversations about it in the past week, both online and in real life. We tried to focus on some of the less obvious and re-posted tricks for this, but had to make #1 the video ender because, like, how many fucking street loops are out there? And who’s gonna collab with NY Ramp Co. on one for Tompkins?

QS Top 10 — February 15, 2019

No titles in the Lovesick clip, so #8 and #7 are question marks until someone leaks the info. Great video, though. Seeing good form on a regular-stance varial heelflip is nice, and somewhat …rare? Or any plain old varial heel for that matter.

Can’t say that’s the Mozzy song we would’ve chose for an ever-elusive Mozzy skate part, but it reminded us that we would all benefit from listening to more Mozzy.

Based on the teaser for the next Arson Department video, next week should be pretty insane. Disqualified everything in the teaser in favor of waiting for the full video obvs. Have a good one. Sorry for the wait. Maybe it dries up today?
