Rain All Week

Hardbody Puerto Rico shirts for Puerto Rican Day on the Hardbody site.

This video rules: “Me And My Dogs” by Will Poon, spotted via Skate Jawn. It’s great how a childhood skate crew video set in New York circa 2021 (e.g. the type of video that will forever exist through all generations of skateboarding) has the potential to get you more hyped to skate than a summer blockbuster :)

“You know what I like? When people go pro. You know what I like more? When people go pro as fuck.” The forever-brilliant Bronze 56k radio mixes are back with a Dick Rizzo guest mix. Shout out to Group Home “Tear Shit Down.” Also forgot how good that Wayne song is.

Carl Aikens and Hosea Peeters’ shared a Thrasher part last week that includes some final remnants of plazacation at Big Screen Plaza :)

Like Whoa

Send Za” is the latest New York edit from videographer Eryk Burton. Ender nollie heel at the new spot everyone’s been getting yelled at is wild.

“I always liked no complies, even when they weren’t cool.” Love these — “Watching Jerry Fowler with Jerry Fowler” is the latest in Village Psychic’s “Watching” series, and it’s about his Continuum part. Glad that he likes it, because it rules ♥ Doing one of these with Jahmal about his section would be just as rad :)

The union bosses at Hit You Off Management re-saturated and remixed some of Dick Rizzo’s Grand Prairie clips.

Stay in the Zone, Turn H20 to Cognac

Village Psychic put together all of Zered’s footage from the objectively bad skatepark next to the B.Q.E. They call it “Bad Park.” Zered calls it “Shit Park.” Queue up Z’s quote from when the park first opened: “Yeah, it’s terrible…but I’ll still skate it all the time.”

Ok, let’s get all the remaining 2020 Year-in-Review content out of the way now, lest we ever need to discuss it again. (More as a courtesy to all the people #creating #content, not for nostalgia’s sake.)

“Just cuz it’s obvious don’t make it wrong.” Boil the Ocean wrapped its annual countdown of the year’s ten best parts (+ a bonus track of ten more.)

Our friends at the Milan-based Skate Muzik podcast have a new NTS Radio episode that runs down some skate video #musicsupervision highlights from last year. That “Joy Road” song from Will Miles’ “Lambrusco” edit goes. Surprised the song Alicia Keys made about Max Palmer didn’t make it on there tbh.

Hybrid Learning

2020 Time Traveller and/or Tom Penny in 1993 by Andrew Horesly, spotted via Science Versus Life

HUF uploaded a raw footy diary of a cross-country road trip with Mason Silva, which includes much of the Spitfire part. The New York portion runs from ~6:55 through the end. It’s rad to see him pay tribute to Jake Johnson Mind Field-era spots, and they do a good job of showing why that West Houston Street hubba was an NBD for so long.

Angel Fonseca has a new part out that’ll have you missing summer days at that BAM ledge.

Vague magazine shared Hiroki Muraoka’s part from the new Traffic video, Third Shift. It includes a *wild* keyhole kickflip at the McCarren Park couch.

Any week when you have two full-length local videos both exceeding 30 minutes is a special week…

Suppy is an HD video by Dylan Holderness and Evan Pacheco, filmed largely in Brooklyn, with an insane ender at the spot that everyone has been getting yelled at by mean security guards for the past month.

Irish Wrist Watch is a SD video by John Clodfelter, filmed around the city with some Jersey clips in between. It’s amazing how watching someone roll away from their first two-stair ollie can lead to more vicarious joy that any number of wild tricks you see on IG every day.
