This Is The Fastest Sandstorm Has Ever Been Played

R.I.P. Giovanni 🐐

Drew x Everson” is a 14-minute video filmed exclusively at the Everson Museum of Art (the centerpiece of the scene in Syracuse, New York), and put together as a tribute to Drew Grabowski, who passed earlier this year. Drew’s family and friends created the nonprofit Skate 4 Drew to help build the Syracuse skate scene in Drew’s memory, which you can donate to here.

The Slam City Skates blog interviewed Casper Brooker about how the whole Baker thing went down.

Skyline is a full-length video out of Cincinnati by Seth Zwick, with tons of midwestern crust, and an epic shared part from Scott Zelner and Logan Hamm.

A billboard above Popeye’s Ledge. A dream come true 🙂🙃🙂🙃🙂

Kind of knew this day was only a matter of time given how bad the cracks are getting. Community Board 3 held a meeting that laid out a plan for repaving Tompkins next summer. Though it is not a hard date just yet, it looks like the court we all skate will be closed for up to three months while the asphalt cures. Doesn’t seem like they are pulling any silly shit like they did with the turf in 2019. (But they are ending softball permits!) Shout out to the lady who pulled up to the meeting like, “How have you gone talking this long without mentioning the skaters?”

The official Thrasher recap is sure to drop mid-week like it does every time, but people on YouTube already compiled an eight-minute 2022 Dime Glory Challenge best-of.

Best Bloody in Huntington

Figured it was due time, and that the city’s three dozen skateparks have evolved past a point of us needing to point some eager tourists towards the direction of the B.Q.E. lot. Updated the QS spot book for the first time in ~two years, mainly to acknowledge the fact that, yes, curbs are formal *spots* now. Removed a handful of outdated ones (yes, the B.Q.E. lot #lol), too. If you live here or visit often, nothing to see here.

The Bronze dudes return to the Polish Park ledges that they made famous in earlier videos with some new faces + Shaun Paul goes off + Will Marshall hops over and back on the furthest possible New York spot + Josh Wilson seals it with with a 10/10 performance in Bronze x DC Shoes’ “WHAT IF GOD SAID” video.

This video rules: “Nice On” by Par Skateboards out of New Jersey. Perhaps the first skate video to be cross-edited with golf footage, so if golf hits the #trendwatch, you know where the nascency was. Otherwise, an all-around inspirational watch on the levels of fun you could squeeze out of hanging out in a industrial park with your friends.

“What happens when Kim Kardashian posts a picture wearing one of your hats?” Village Psychic spoke to Jerry Hsu about the ins-and-outs of starting a brand in the era where everyone has a brand + about the 1993 Foundation team, naturally.
