Took Some Thousand Dollar Pants & Cut ‘Em Into Shorts

The Top 10 desk would like to thank Sour Skateboards for the vacation it is taking for the rest of the week. Sour Solution III is now live.

Getting your pro board thrown into your skull and having to spend the rest of the premiere celebrating while bleeding from the head is a new one. Sk8 or die taken to its logical extreme. Maybe it was just out of solidarity with Giannis ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

QS B.F.F. Zered Bassett was on the Angel & Z podcast last week. There’s a bit of graffiti talk at the start, but it gets into skating about ten minutes in. A lot of wisdom and honesty from one of the first few to truly do it at that level on the east coast. Also, the Greece story is insane.

Streetsweepers

It’s wild that this thing reached a level of being skated-enough to where the city actually went out of their way to knob the ledge. This photo certainly does the spot the most justice out of all the coverage you’ve seen on it • 📸 Mike Heikkila on the photo, Thomas Dritsas on the board.

Enjoyed “Whistle” a lot — a Washington D.C. video by Eddie Gutierrez that at once feels nostalgic while firmly of the moment. A lot of unfamiliar faces to those outside the D.C. scene, though it’s hard not to wish you knew who some of them were (to the chagrin of the position that homie videos should have titles.) Skate Jawn has an interview with Eddie about the video’s creation as well.

Village Psychic has a part-by-part deep-dive of what it would take to make a sustainable skateboard.

9 hugs, 41 blunts, and 54 slams — 4Ply Mag went ahead and crunched the numbers on Shake Junt’s new video, Shrimp Blunt.

A half hour of Tyshawn loosies!

Could not stop watching this video. Nah, it’s not a skate clip.

Ville has been more than few friends’ favorite skater for a minute now. This 20-minute compilation of loosies should be what you watch if you’re going skating today ❤️

Somebody compiled a half-hour of Instagram clips from all the Bronze dudes.

The New Orleans section from last year’s Skate Jawn video is a lot of fun.

Must Believe in Spring

DREWWWWWWWWW. Photo by Max Hull.

Young legend Marcello Campanello is the latest to be profiled on Pocket‘s “Followed” series for a Queens x Tompkins day. Some of the crispest flip tricks in the business; that warm-up over the grate is crazy. That restaurant they hit at the end looks fire too 🔥

ICYMI: Darren Harper’s “Out There” is a must-watch, and a literal representation of the “skateboarding saved my life” axiom that we hear so much. And it is right on time given the uncertain future that Pulaski Park is facing. Some of those archive tricks they run back are still so nuts 🤯

Vega alert 🚨 Buggy Alert 🚨 J.P. Blair went to Spain with the Bronze boys. Sweeter than sangria out a box.

Nine minutes of Elijah Odom loosies!!!

Procrastination Olympics

Boil the Ocean’s piece on Revolutions on Granite — the Ukrainian skate scene documentary that went live on Thrasher earlier this month — sums up the power of those 40 minutes in a way that every skateboard writer wishes they could.

Fake puke is expensive. Pryce gave a bunch of the backstories behind a lot of the best Alltimers boards for Solo Skate Mag. Yes, he met Marisa Tomei after they did that cruiser. Yes, she was hyped on it. Like the old proverb goes: “Nobody has a crush on anybody the way men born in the 80s have a crush on Marisa Tomei.”

Shopping carts and bicycle wheels are the new skatestopper. Hosea Peters has a new part entirely filmed in New York.

Throw some old King Louie shit on and watch these 15 minutes of Louie Lopez loosies.
