Mr. Horigome seems to be on a Monday victory lap after defying both the frustrating difficulty of skating in Tokyo, and the Olympic bureaucracy’s cockamamie idea that you could keep a young man off the streets in his all-Tokyo part late last week.
Today he’s the star of the show in Nike and Supreme’s Parisian promo piece for their upcoming Dunk, filmed by William Strobeck and Augustin Giovannoni. If you weren’t holding onto a firm thread for S.O.T.Y. speculation just yet, he seems like a pretty safe bet from where we sit three months out ;)
When you hear Lenox has the fire wifi…
Naquan Rollings dropped a quick edit of his crew’s first session down the Brooklyn Banks 9. There are some beautiful pieces of flip trick #form in there.
Not even a few hours after it finished, the YouTubers compiled all the stories and Insta posts of the footage from the Hardies x Supreme event at 12th and A this past Saturday. Features obviously Tyshawn, but also Karim Callender, Troy Gipson, and Who Kid in the dunk tank.
Aaron Herrington and Lurker Lou hit the Staten Island flatbar park and more in the latest installment of Village Psychic’s “Lurking With Lou” 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 😮
If you’re a longtime QS reader, there’s a decent chance that the ~2014-2020 run of Johnny Wilson videos have saved up enough repeat viewings for a penthouse apartment in your heart. And within that sweet-spot of unbridled productivity that went down from 2014 to 2016, “rack” always felt like something of a crown jewel. There were Cyrus’ night lines, Hjalte and Brass interchanging clips before they were Polar teammates, and Antonio throwing a switch tre down D7 in the middle of a web edit — all soundtracked to Moodymann, when #skatevideohouse was at its peak.
Which is also the reason we’re talking about “rack” today. Johnny just dropped a Chicago edit with the Supreme dudes to commemorate the opening of their new store out there, and a Moodymann reprise was naturally in order. Except this time, it’s Nik Stain, Kris Brown and Kalis trading granite cathedral lines, Caleb with 10/10 switch heel form, and Tyshawn doing Tyshawn shit.
Spring QS goods arriving to U.S. shops this week. Gonna post a lil’ preview this week. Arriving internationally starting next week and onward ❤️ Online soon • 📷 via Patrick Buckley.
Closer has an extended cut of Louie Lopez’s footy via last year’s F.A. sesh at Tompkins, along with an excerpt from the interview Farran did with him.
Paul Young has a new video on the way starring Ben Tenner (that flick on the kickflip noseslide!) and Joe Russo. Hate that we’re already thinking about 2023 though.
Our friends at Andrew Skateshop in Miami got a feature in Vogue.
