Trade Deadline

Yoooooo, obvs we out, but summer on Friday 4real.

#Surfboard Vines had a good run, but they’re officially done. This guy won.

Holy switch hardflip. Anyone else feel tempted to go buy a pink crewneck now?

Even in winter, the most productive skate crew in New York is still putting out three-minute montages. Fashion goes in cycles, so it makes sense that people are skating Verizon Banks again, albeit between hundreds of knobs.

It’s awesome that Chrome Ball never really shut down; it still has better interviews than everywhere else. The latest post-faux-mortem installment is with Reese Forbes, one of the most frequent recipients of “You had to see him skate in real life to really get it“-honors. Also, these ads were great.

Before you get too nostalgic about the nineties…(BTW, Blind jeans are back.)

A new part from history’s most prolific half cab boardslider, Jersey Dave.

Any clip with a Z-Ro song in it gets an automatic post. Still waiting for someone to skate to this

“Snowboarders, like, see the world differently, dude.”

The new all-night, short sleeve heavy montage from the Haha Funtime crew is going to make you really sad about the state of outdoor activity right now.

New Albany-centric video from Jeremy Jordan and friends.

Still Scummin’ is a cool 40-minute bro cam video of Jersey dudes skating around known haunts of the New York region. Austin Kanfoush’s part did it justice, but it’s perfectly reasonable to use “Fuck That Shit” in every single skate video that gets put out for the remainder of skateboarding’s existence.

ICYMI: Just like Robocop (or something?), Traffic Skateboards got rebooted. They have a new montage out that features Luke Malaney footage :)

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Gotta be Waiters v.s. Hardaway J.R. in the rookie-sophomore game.

Quote of the Week: “I never thought switch skating was going to catch on. I’d tell people they’re better off investing their money in laser discs.” — Justin Barnes

Beanies are sold out until next winter. Thanks to anyone out there wearing one xoxo.

So Cold as Siberiaaaaa-a-a

qs riri wall boards

“What’s the whitest trick in skateboarding?” “Snowboarding.”

Domestics Clothing is now being distributed in the U.K. by the crew at Wayward Gallery. They have a new promo out featuring Torey Goodall, Fred Gall, Quim Cardona and others. T has a sick 180 switch crook ender in some Light Ass Denim™, so you know he’s getting money. (See also: Ishod in Chronicles 2.)

Billy Rohan on Harold Hunter’s Mixtape part. “At least I went pro, you only went flow.”

It seems like the next generation of skate videos is going to be pretty Tumblr, huh?

Speaking of Tumblr: some (photographic) highlights from Olson’s Thrasher interview.

Another five-minute round of leftovers from the Spam video.

No complys are officially trending in New Jersey.

Honestly, the the image of Three Up Three Down and the idea of girls jogging past it in 70-degree weather is the only thing keeping the Quartersnacks office going right now. Until then, here’s video blog #205 from Johnny Wilson and friends.

Kingpin magazine has given in to the #listicle-ized / ad dollar maximizing direction of the internet, and offered a list that is relevant to the interests of this website: The Top Ten Euro Tech Parts. Though we’re partial to Enrique Lorenzo’s L.A. County part as his best offering (#musicsupervision, among other things), the list notably points us in the direction of his under-appreciated Logic part.

Another new Bolts 4-5-6 clip with Chris Lingat.

The Berrics spent last week putting out New York-related content, which will all be of varying interest to you.

How appropriate is it that Brian Wenning’s Lockdown Skateboards is the only enterprise still releasing footage from Staten Island’s ABC ledges? Also, did they get sandblasted or something? They look newer than they did in 2003.

The PFP3 video is premiering at the 2nd Nature Skatepark on Saturday. Promo here.

Non skate-related link alert! If you’re one of those people that complains about rap and uses annoying phrases like “the state of hip-hop,” NPR (yeah, seriously…) recently released two interviews — one with Bun B and the other with Starlito and Don Trip — that are more interesting than any conception of an “interview with a rapper” has the right to be (i.e. they go far beyond typical rapper interview “get this money”-isms.) Listen to them and shut up. Thanks.

QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Carmelo’s 62. Please, everybody, don’t let this fool you into thinking this team is elevating anywhere beyond a first-round playoff out (with a losing record) this year, or any other year as long as Dolan owns them.

Quote of the Week (cannot remember who this interaction was between, sorry.)
“I met your ex’s new man the other night.”
“Yeah, he has a great backside tailslide.”

Having a tough time figuring out what stance Bieber is
