Scumco seems to be shutting its doors. “Fading into oblivion” is how they worded it. Boards + more are on sale on their webstore if you’re looking for one last ride ❤️
Better late than never! Thrasher uploaded the edit of Tyshawn’s S.O.T.Y. trip to Australia from last year after it being stuck in music rights limbo forever. The footage of the backside flip from the cover is so nuts. Co-starring Will Jones.
Tipping Points is a sick upstate New York-based video by Taryn Ward with parts from Japhey Dow, Justin + Nate Grzechowiak, Jonny Goupil, and more.
Nico Marti made a 35-minute bro-cam video in the Krooked Gnaughty mode alongside his crew filming for Late Nite Stars’ O video.
HARD DRIVE is a New Haven, Connecticut scene video from the younger generation gyrating around Plush Skateshop. We have a soft spot for CT videos on here in general, but this one is very special. It makes a small(ish) city like New Haven feel like a big city scene and a small town all at once, full of night footage and the sort of third-eye-open spots you find when traversing the same hometown back lots over and over. No names, no info, but it rules. Last dude rips.
“Most Wanted” is the latest bi-coastal edit from Crazy Ass Paterson Skaters. Ross’ kickflip front 5050 was 10/10.
The O.G. Tompkins bench is at the Star Team Shop.
“BARRIO” is a new, all-Bronx edit from the Hunny Dip NYC crew. Kickflip back tail on one of those planter rails is a wild thing to try 💪
John Shanahan starts a line by rolling off the amphitheater at the Citi Field benches, props a tile up to the second level of the CBS benches, and kickflips off the grate side over the Crosby Street bump-to-bar in his latest DC part, in case you haven’t caught it yet.
Everybody’s unloading their fakie 5-0 flip out clips at Big Screen now that the spot’s knobbed 😔 Jasper Stieve and Neema Joorabchi come through with a new one for Free, featuring watery gap to grinds and exemplary frontside heelflip form.
“I think it’s safe to say that the range for a proper ledge height in a skate park setting should be between 13 1/2 and 14 1/4 inches.” Dave Caddo went around the city measuring the dimensions of some of its most oft-skated ledges, from the 12-inch-high Reggaeton fence ledge or the 19-inch-high Flushing Meadows Park Ledges. He compiled his findings over on his Substack, Skait Brane.
Congrats to E.T. on going pro 🍸 Board available on the Alltimers site now • Photo by Anthony Asfour.
Added Kevin Braun’s “Pier 7” part + Casper Brooker’s “Cathedral” part filmed entirely at Southbank (it’s actually the fourth inclusion to be filmed entirely at SB) to the Quartersnacks One-Spot Part Map, which is slowly creeping its way to 100 spots :)
There is absolutely no way you haven’t already caught these, right? Jamal Smith skates to his own music and returns to the Ithaca Park that made him a superstar in his new Adidas part (that heelflip front blunt!) + Jahmir Brown pays homage to Javier Nuñez’s front crook off the Courthouse Drop in his new DC part.
“I realized so many stories or moments that I’ve lived don’t have photos to accompany them. I wasn’t equipped, equipment-wise or mentally, to decide, ‘This moment is a photo,’ and I need to go out of my way to get it no matter what people think.” The Slam City Skates blog has an interview with French photographer, Benjamin Deberdt, about coming to New York to shoot photos of Keenan, Huf and the Cardona brothers in the nineties. (He shot the above Huf photo.)
Added Vu Skateshop’s “Lyric” video — filmed entirely at the Lyric Monument in Baltimore — to the QS One-Spot Part Map.
