Pocket did a day in the life with the Rat Ratz crew out in Milan 🇮🇹
Here’s a 17-minute raw Max Palmer fan edit that somebody compiled, dating back to the days when the Delancey Curbs were a popping spot. If you want some additional Max entertainment, you might want to run back Johnny Wilson’s front nose compilation from 2019 :)

Though a bit lagging on concrete specifics, The New York Times had a feature last week about the pending restoration of the Brooklyn Banks, which apparently has the mayor’s support? (2023 is actually what they said when they pulled all the bricks out three years ago.)
Cutty spots and familiar faces in Nick Kassebaum’s Sinkhole video, which is almost entirely filmed in New York.
Does this spot have an agreed upon name yet, or is everyone going to do the whole civil war over naming rights? Neema Joorabchi posted up a two-minute edit from the new, blue and yellow recycled plastic ledges on Essex Street.
“I’m in the midst of a battle right now, I’ve gone back down to riding a 7.75” board.” The Slam City Skates blog interviewed Danny Brady for their “First & Last” series.
Congrats to Marcello Campanello for going pro for Max Allure last week 🏆 Came across this loosies comp on YouTube just after it went down. Also, run back our interview with Marcello from a year ago in case you missed it, and maybe there’s another lil’ surprise due on here soon ;)
ICYMI: The teaser for Supreme and Bill Strobeck’s new video, Play Dead, dropped on Friday.
DUPLEX 4 coming soon. This YouTube review of DUPLEX 3 should get you hyped.
Crazy Ass Paterson Skaters posted the recap from their second “Land or Slam” event, where they just mob to street spots throughout Paterson, New Jersey giving out cash + product for tricks. It has the freeform feel of a skate contest from a distant past, just done for the sake of doing it. That tre flip into the kinked bank downtown and the one-foot hill bomb were wild 😮

Feel like this should’ve been on the repost circuit way heavier… On Friday, Stussy dropped an eight-minute promo by Antosh Cimoszko featuring what amounts to small parts’ worth of footage from Aaron Loreth, Diego Todd, Jesse Alba and Hugo Boserup + appearances from others.
Also related: A few minutes of Diego Todd loosies.
The Halloween Stickers crew dropped HSS2 last week. No full Liam McCabe part, but that FedEx line is absolutely fucking insane. Not sure if anybody has done two flip tricks down the sixes before.
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.
