Max Palmer got the Pocket “Followed” treatment as they …followed him from his home, to his studio, to Fort Green Park, and then to pizza ❤️ Might be the first or second time many people are hearing Max talk.
Richie Blackshaw has a new part for Metal Skateboards via Vague — full of New Jersey crust and a Fred Gall-ian eye for spots. That 5-0 pivot down the edge on those banks across from Lincoln Center was so wild. Video by Brandon Stepanow.
An extended dive into the last days of Muni + a Pyramid Ledge banger (into the construction!) in Kiernan McGinnis’ “Budget Junglizm” part that feels adjacent to the Sabotage universe.
Quinn Batley dropped a quick mini part for Melodi.
Ville just dropped a new part for Nike SB with cameos from everyone [who skates Nikes] in the Limo-verse and the greater Johnny Wilson-sphere (+ Oski.) Helmed by Tor Ström and filmed throughout his home in Copenhagen, L.A. and New York — it really feels like the New York clips were the crowd pleasers in this one …at least if looking at your Insta timeline in chronological order is any indicator. (You get up to make a sandwich for lunch, sit back down, and all of a sudden, you’re the last person on the internet to see the new Ville part!)
It didn’t take long for people to figure out a new angle at Police Plaza since the rail got lost in the matrix, but truly was not counting on that angle being those rubbery benches.
And raise your hand if your brain let out a “hmmm…what’s he up to?” when you saw Cyrus cruising down the Williamsburg Bridge.
In our face-paced age of information, it is easy to forget that un-used skate footage is a commodity with an expiration date. Any number of factors — tees featuring logos of sponsors from yesteryear, spots that haven’t been with us for some time, new tats, hair — risk pulling the viewer out of the simulation that the person onscreen didn’t toil for months and years over the product at hand.
Young legend Tor Ström put together a surprise Ville Wester part and dropped it on his YouTube channel this morning. Some of it feels like it was culled from the Polar days before the switch to Palace, likely from the sessions that produced their last video, which Ville obvs had the ender in. Seeing as how “What Now?” feels every bit as — to quote a recent Thrasher caption, “fully formed” — as the part that ended up closing The Polar Video With Endless Name Variations, Ville def had an extra opus worth of footage on ice.
One of the best doing it today.

Added Dusty Familia’s “101 Fulton” edit of the Veteran’s Plaza in Grand Rapids, Michigan + Maceo Moreau’s “La Plaine Brute” edit from La Plaine in Marseilles to the QS One-Spot Part Map.
Paul Young uploaded the full raw files to the “Museum of Sex” edit.
“I lovvvveee your outfitttttt. Mwah.” Cee-Lo Champs’ new video, Demon Time, is now live.
In a shocking turn of events, there is currently a New York City Council Proposal to expedite a restoration of the Small Banks and the adjacent basketball courts into an active public space. Leave a comment to show your support.
An eight-minute Jahmir Brown Instagram loosies comp.
A four-minute Carl Aikens IG loosies comp (pretty much all city footy.)
Polar videographer Tor Ström has an incredible new edit out entitled, “Until Then.” Filmed in Malmö, Copenhagen and Portland, Oregon (funny how those places half-a-world apart feel so spiritually connected by terrain, D.I.Ys and weather.) Features much of the Polar extended family.
