The Quartersnacks web store is now open with holiday gear. This includes hoodys, longsleeve tees, a light reissue of the Tompkins crew, and some beanies. Everything is available at Labor, Exit and Orchard right now. Other shops and abroad this week. Also, UK residents: Slam City Skates carries our stuff now. Support your local skate site. *Promise to update every day this week if you buy something* :)
Vote for Bobby. Pretty tight how he mentions Javier Sarmiento in his top three of 2014. Javi has a few lines at some insane spot and a great nollie backside flip in in this new, uh, Arnette clip.

Rigged a lil’ wear test video for the new Nike SB Grant Taylor shoe at Flushing a few weeks ago.

Or did we have bad luck?)
Tony Ferguson on the first-ever Girl tour to Europe. “Oh yeah, did you hear about the van? The van is gone too.”
SMLTalk reviewed an illegally downloaded version of True, while Frozen in Carbonite provided an analysis on the similarities between True, Questionable and Virtual Reality. A QS review of the new Plan B video? The trick Pudwill does over the Milan grate is psychotic and Sheckler should’ve skated to “Lifestyle.”
Someone was bound to edit a video part to “Coco” before the year was out.

Johnny didn’t want to compromise his artistic integrity by putting an advertisement from a multimillion fashion conglomerate in the middle of his video, so he pulled it at the last minute. It’s online now for your viewing pleasure:
You might have heard about the Coda Long Island City indoor spot. Here’s a clip.
All things considered, this went as good as it possibly could have gone.
