Happy late birthday Max. Photo by Johnny Wilson.
Late start today, after an unprecedented first week of the year with five updates :)
Probably caught this already, but Bronze dropped a Euro trip video right before the weekend, featuring two weeks spent in Berlin and Paris.
Best Johnny Wilson clip and Max footage in a minute. A road trip with Cyrus Bennett and Loose Trucks Max from the south, thru the midwest.
Even though Sheffey and Gonz tend be the most oft-mentioned parts, in doing those “Five Favorite Part” segments, one name has been mentioned by almost every person 30+ as one of their biggest influences, and it’s Ocean Howell. Chromeball has an extensive new interview with him about his career, hiatus and return.
Disregarding the world’s toughest question, Jordan Trahan knows where to skate AND eat, as he gives a tour of his favorite restaurants, all of which are on Orchard Street.
A bunch of podcasts / audio interviews seem like they made their way online in the past week: 1) The Nine Club interviewed Gino Iannucci. 2) “I had a job working at a skate shop since I was 12 and the only thing it prepares you for in the real world is how to deal with assholes.” — Somehow missed this “Max White Presents” one with Dave Caddo. 3) Max White has another new one with Taylor Nawrocki. 4) Tim O’Connor had Bobby Puleo on for his Jenkem Podcast. 5) The Bunt’s new one is with Chad Dixon.
Colin Sussingham has a quick photo feature over on Skateboard Story.
China footage isn’t boring, it’s just all in *how* you do it.
Cafe Creme came through with a “Best of 2016” list, reminding everyone to rewatch Kyron Davis’ “No Longer a Wasteman” part, and this IG remix of Vince.
How many more years until somebody finally ollies this?
Hotbox Social compiled a 12-track mixtape of Future loosies from 2016 (“How It Feel” is still super important), and Shrimp C put together a comprehensive best of 2016 for the endlessly underrated Strap from Travis Porter.
QS Sports Desk Play of the Week: Duh. Porzingis’ double block on Giannis, proceeded by a three.
Quote of the Week: “You don’t skate, nor is this inspirational to you.” — Lurker Lou
Found a version with no Lil Uzi. Enjoy the extra minute to your life from here on out ;)
