QS x Cons Available March 1 🏀
Vague has a premiere of Brian Powderly’s Static 6 part. Ollieing into that smudge of asphalt on the other side of the Ridgewood Reservoir spot is, as they say, ~completely unhinged~.
Vague also sat down for an extended video chat with three of the principal filmers behind the Static series to talk all the things that skate videographers talk about 🧠
Another Vague link?! Yes, another Vague link: they interviewed Hopps teamrrider and QS office favorite, Kyler Garrison.
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.

Zach Sayles’ incredible Veil video is now online in full.
Carlisle Aikens is the latest subject of Hypebeast’s “Diaries” video series, which is a half-interview / half-day-in-the-life type of thing.
Was under the impression that Beta Blockers would be A Small Palace Video — maybe because it’s August and the skate media mental calendar often saves the year’s blockbuster releases for the holidays — but no, Beta Blockers is A Big Palace Video spanning the whole team, and at a Palasonic-equivalent runtime. In August! What a world.
7 Ball is the latest full-length from Nike SB and U.K. videographer, Will Miles. It feels like a continuation of the best bits from the Jacob Harris-helmed Trust Fall that dropped back in 2019, grouping the best-fitting riders from the colossus that is the 2023 SB team into a cohesive project. Everyone here feels like they actually enjoy skating with one another, rather than the “showcase” vibe that often happens when companies try to stuff their entire team into one project — to pretty much the detriment of everything. (The plus side of shorter attention spans today: it’s probably a good thing that we’re past the era of Nothing But The Truth and Away Days.)
