#QSTOP10 — May 17, 2019

Didn’t think some new company called April would take up half of a countdown, but some weeks are weird. Also felt the Shane O’Neill trick that flashed in front of the screen for 1.7 seconds more than a lot of the more sensationalized shit in that part. Shout out to boardslide fakies in ledge lines too.

And apologies for the slow content mill around here these past several weeks. All the worker bees from the writing and video departments got sent to the warehouse to fill orders for the webstore, and it paid off — we’re on the record as having lightning fast shipping. If you ordered something this week and haven’t received a confirmation, feel free to get in touch with us. Thank you everyone for your support, and we will resume with our regularly scheduled programing next week.

Rest in Peace Ben Raemers ♥ Skateboarding has had a rough 2019, and it’s not even half over yet.

EDIT: #3 is Tyler Wolford.

Most of the people in this Top 10 speak French ¯(°_o)/¯ The past week has involved a heavy handful of “Et Vasey” viewings, so all-in-all, pretty appropriate. The rest of the clips are [mostly] in New York hehe. We really gotta get this Paris satellite office popping…

Apologies for the slow news week around here — been a lot of backend work in preparation for us finally having new garms in the webstore for the first time in…like, months. Haven’t even had a chance to wallie that slanted box concoction at T.F. that everyone’s been skating :(

Webstore re-opens on Monday, May 13 @ 11 A.M. E.S.T.

Take your mom out to dinner this weekend. Have a good one xoxo ♥

#QSTOP10 — May 3, 2019

A few weeks ago, we pulled up to that gap Mike Arnold switch ollies in his marathon line from the Athens Atlantic Drift with some Canadian skate lords. They deemed that it looked too much like a spot in Calgary or something — and yeah, when you’re in a place that provided the blueprint for the majority of western architecture, skating something that looks like it’s in back on a warehouse fulfillment center is aiming a bit low on the aesthetic scale. However, Mike Arnold really thought that one through, and choreographed the fuck out of that spot. Kudos to Jake on the steady hand.

And while we’re not exactly the most pool-saavy media enterprise, there’s some really wild shit in that John Worthington part, enough to get even the most fair-weather transition skating fan going. The hurricane under a moving freight train is frontrunner for the “Trick Your Mom Would Hate — 2019” award…

Rest in Peace Pablo Ramirez

Congratulations Antonio Durao on the most overdue pro board in history ♥

And if you’re looking for that “How weren’t more people talking about this!?”-part of the past week (what non-Thrasher video truly even gets over 10k+ views on YouTube in the first couple days anymore?), you should give Jordan Thackeray’s Don’t worry Gordo, the universe will get us there section a good whirl.

The nosegrind down a hubba with a board that doesn’t have a nose was probably the best trick in that Max Geronzi part, but it didn’t register until repeat viewings outside of office hours. Otherwise, this one is as all over the place as the last few. Nice to see new Frank footage though :)
