Made Mistakes In ’98, But ’99 Will Be Better

Salomon Cardenas, Etienne Gagne + Jason Byoun share a part in the Frog video, Killer Skaters 2.

The first one-spot part of the decade: Sergio Rodas and Brian Douglas share a section entirely filmed at Scudder Plaza A.K.A. the Princeton University spot. It’s crazy how no matter what talk there is about the decline of plaza spots in the U.S., post-Love skateboarding on the east coast has coincided with a surge in footage from here, Empire State Plaza, Everson, etc. — all of which went largely under-covered in the two decades prior.

Rafael ‘Haffa’ Pereira — Inkwell Commons Part

The latest offering from Andre “Actually Everybody’s Father” Page’s Inkwell Commons imprint is a part from Rafael “Haffa” Pereira. I can’t exactly remember how many times I’ve heard Dre scold Haffa for his Grizzly grip, but I guess you have to be pretty stubborn to insist on going to skate fourteen stairs to begin with ♥

Filmed half in/around Boston, half in New York by Andre Page and Gatti.

Edited by Cruzctrl a.k.a. Eric Cruz.

He finally has the Inkwell site/shop up and running after 80 years. Pay her a visit.

Loosely related, but Dre has posting a ton of gems from old QS clips, etc. over on his personal Instagram as of late.

Do What You Gotta Do

Inkwell Commons is an upstart project by Andre Page. Here is a brief video showcasing some of the people involved with it. Features Brendan Carroll, Josh Velez (in his most Puerto Rican-est performance yet), Andre Page, Tyler Tufty and Rafael Pereira. No one out of the ordinary. Same standard protocol QS cast list from the summer. (Be warned: There’s a sheet of Grizzly Grip in it.) More info soon.
