Leo Heinert’s Blitz Jam series hosted an impromptu skate jam at Flushing last week, and a bunch of wild shit went down. Really sick seeing people huck down the six, which feels like it hasn’t seen a ton of action since they renovated it over COVID. Brandon has got to go back for that 360 flip — that was wild.
Hypebeast paid a visit to Carpet Company HQ in Baltimore, and came back with a video exploring the two brothers’ creative and production process.
Soo Saxton is back with Gabe Shah for another six minute part filmed entirely in New York. You can feel the cold through the screen in some of those clips.
Nearly 20 years to the day that Koston 360 flip noseblunted the rail that would cap off Girl’s Yeah Right! video (yes, Yeah Right! turns 20 this month), Antonio did it switch on the famous Houston, TX rail. Swipe to the second slide.

Brandon Johnson A.K.A. @nolimitbrod on IG has a new part out full of tech surprises, entirely filmed in New York.
“I’m scared of stray hairs and rats.” New York Mag‘s Cut publication did a quick Q & A with Alexis Sablone on the occasion of the Candy Courts Park obstacles opening up in Montclair, NJ. (QS #spotcheck here, ICYMI.)
“As far as
Jimmy Quartersnacks was concerned with Tommy being made Meatball making it back to Japan, it was like we were all being made making it back to Japan.” Happy Birthday Meatball (and Rihanna) 💞 QS for Classic Grip available at Japanese shops now ❤️
Fly’n across America 🇺🇸 Ryan Mettz dropped a quick new homie edit with Cyrus, Max, Karim & Franco.
Acai, film rolls and sushi: Skate Jawn‘s latest “$100 Chill” feature is with Naquan Rollings and perfectly encapsulates a low-stakes winter skate day in New York.
Also for Skate Jawn: Zach Moeller got on his Bourdain shit and wrote a guide on how to hit Europe for two with absolutely zero plan.
“Hey Troy, so how much shit do you usually get for having such pretty eyes?” Heckride interviewed Troy Gipson.
Bill Strobeck’s Violet imprint just dropped their first longish-form video since the inaugural Violet promo from last spring. “THE BUTTERFLY” is an Efron Danzig part (real name, for those who don’t know) intro’d by a montage from the rest of the team: Troy Gipson, Kyle Teh, Seven Strong, Auguste Bouznad, Patrick O’Mara and Kris Brown.
Yelled at the screen in shock when that Rodney Mullen-esque ender came out of nowhere — a Muni crowd pleaser very much in the mold of the kickflip front 5-0 line from Harry Bergenfield’s Down Bad video that made Efron a fan-favorite. Have a look at the bench-to-planter combo that Patrick O’Mara 5050’s into the street next time you’re cruising down Park Avenue, too.
Writing in 2019, when “cherry” snagged the top spot in QS Readers Poll results for best videos of the 2010s (voting for this year’s opens soon!), Boil the Ocean remarked “that it is easy to forget the gamble that “cherry” represented roughly one eternity ago.” The gamble clearly worked, and “BLESSED” felt like a result of the creative blank check a film studio gives out when someone’s first feature breaks expectations.
