A Deadstock German Shepherd

Shout out to Twitter for tracking this one down. More skate photos with friends in the background please ♥

Interblend” is a New York / New Jersey montage by Tokyo-based filmer Rob Taro, who made the full-length Time Scan video from last year. Features a mini Central Park section in the middle. Eby’s ollie over the barrier into the rock is fucked.

A fun Twitter thread, which hones in on a #trend that we had not noticed until now: skaters whose parts are set to recent movie scores, some of them totally random. Cheers to Henry for the research.

#Skatevideohouse lives! “Parking Lot Music Video Installation 1” is a montage with some new faces at a very #current circuit of spots around the city.

Cracks & Crevices

Nah Yeah is an all Long Island video by Duran Murphy, which is a twenty-minute deep dive into a scene that we too often only associate with the most obvious names + an annual trip to the Rosyln Banks/pool. It’s also crazy how much a dude switching between éS, Etnies, Vans & Osiris in a single part stands out in 2019. Also, shout out to Mook.

A bit north and to the left, we have Concerned Citizen, a rad 15-minute video filmed all around upstate New York: Rochester, Elmira, Binghamton, Ithaca, et al. Noticed a lot of Homegrown tees and boards, so assuming they have something to do with it :) We really need to make it back up there next summer. “What the FUCK does ‘really’ mean?”

Web Premiere — Tino Del Zotto’s ‘PFP5’ Part

Photo by Bryan Weis

Mike Sass has been making Westchester videos with his PFP / Picture Fucking Perfect series for pretty much this entire decade. The series offers a view of a scene that’s very much a satellite of the city, yet full of skaters and spots not trapped in the “let’s meet at L.E.S. or Blubba and see what happens” pattern that is synonymous with so many 2010s New York videos. (And anyone living in Brooklyn can replace the Blubba in this meme with Blue Park.) City life will have you so wrapped up in routine and safety nets that a place only ten miles north of The Bronx can come off feeling like its from a different skate scene entirely.

We are proud to present our friend Tino Del Zotto’s section from the video — also his first-ever part altogether ♥

PFP5 is Sass’ fifth full-length video since 2010, and can be purchased for $12 here. TWS has Andrew Singh’s part up for viewing, and Jenkem has Brandon Gironda’s section + a mini interview with Sass about the series.

Also forgot to mention it on Monday, but apparently, when we joked about this thing getting knobbed in like…2015, it was because someone actually fully really did roll in on it. Check the 1:12 mark of Girodana’s part if you already haven’t. Crazy.
