QS x The World’s Best Griptape™ is a good home for your Christmas $ ❤️

For a more curated best of 2022 run-down than our crowd-sourced one, Boil the Ocean is in the midst of its annual top ten list of the year’s finest video parts. Jahmir ✅, Elijah ✅ and Diego ✅.

Simple Magic ran down a list of the year’s best skateboard writing. Shout out for the nod on Frozen in Carbonite’s griptape piece from June, and Ian Browning’s L.E.S. Park profile from August.

The Skate Muzik podcast also dropped its year-in-review podcast running through notable #musicsupervision selections from the past 12 months of skate videos. Shout out to the Louke Man song from the Limosine edit.

Best Piña Colada in Newark

The game of S.K.A.T.E. everybody has been waiting for. Nah, it’s not B.A.T.B. — it’s Turtle v.s. Rohan via Masterplan.

Beloved by few, hated by more, tolerated by the majority. The Corlears Hook Pedestrian Bridge — better known to us as the home of Alligator Ledge — was just demolished last week, following suit with the East River Park Amphitheater.

Plazacation: Ibiza

Via @whatisnewyork

Brianna Delaney and Lee Madden dropped on a new part that also chronicles her transition and journey from the past few years ❤️ Features plenty of stunning lines and some of the best back tails in the biz.

Going to echo the resoundingly unanimous praise about Free x Memory Screen’s Ray Barbee remix/tribute/epic. Immune to trends, utterly timeless, and a shoo-in for one of the coolest skateboarders of all-time — there will never be another Ray Barbee. It was also a reminder to revisit the time Genny interviewed him for QS.
