Thanks to everyone who grabbed something off the webstore sale last week. Should be caught up on shipping by end of today 📦💨

The NPR Story on the A.V.E. bench spills a bit of the secret on how the bench got to Richmond, Virginia at the end, straight from…the Temple University police. Bravo to skateboarders, for always figuring it out. If you aren’t already aware, @ave_bench on Instagram has been tracking the world tour at every turn.

Summer’s over, school’s back, and it’s fashion week, baby! 👠 To celebrate, we’re doing a big sale on the webstore to help us clear out in anticipation for the fall. Use the discount code ENDOFSUMMER at checkout for 40% off. Expires E.O.D. on Friday, September 9. Tell a friend, to tell a friend, to tell a friend 💆🏼‍♀️ (Doesn’t apply to wax or sticker packs you sicko.)

“This skateboard rivalry is getting downright gnarly.” Pretty sure everybody agreed to move on from the A.V.E. bench’s relocation from New York to Philly after a string of memes last week, but then… the New York Post decided it was newsworthy, right down to quotes from A.V.E. and Harry Bergenfield. Didn’t have that one on the 2022 bingo board, that’s for sure…

“There are only so many synonyms for ‘gnarly’ and ‘smooth’ available.” 4Ply Mag created a statistical analysis of 2022 Thrasher captions, in addition to a Thrasher caption generator.

Seven Steps To Tompkins

Jenkem has an interview with Trung Nguyen, the architect behind last year’s most talked-about trick, and Big Parody.

“We are sad. People can say we are overreacting and that this spot will likely be liberated, but there is a gross feeling seeing the city prioritize something like this.” Village Psychic made a tribute to their local curb on the occasion of… the city knobbing a curb — appropriately titled, “Sadman Plaza.”

The QS office favorite Rios Crew out of Budapest just dropped a new video, entitled Uccsó. They’re as atmospheric and third-eye-open with the spots as ever, but it’s the filming that truly took on a new dimension in this one.

Best Piña Colada in Newark

The game of S.K.A.T.E. everybody has been waiting for. Nah, it’s not B.A.T.B. — it’s Turtle v.s. Rohan via Masterplan.

Beloved by few, hated by more, tolerated by the majority. The Corlears Hook Pedestrian Bridge — better known to us as the home of Alligator Ledge — was just demolished last week, following suit with the East River Park Amphitheater. Pretty sure that the last sighting of it in footage was Trung Nguyen’s section in Melodi’s “Sparks” video. Tough break for the same week they started knobbing city curbs.

Add sugarcanes on curbs to the #trendwatch.

Joe Cups uploaded a snapshot of skateboarding in New York in 1999: the original BAM, the World Trade manny pad, the mini Banks rail, trips to Casino Skatepark, and obvs Andre Page.
