YEOOO! The Will Marshall Crazy T Remix

We have posted Mr. Marshall’s “YEEEO!” on the QS IG story every Friday at midnight for about two years now. It has been a way to usher in the upcoming weekend; hearing it releases a jolt of serotonin. It means skating, friends, good times, laughs, and maybe an adult beverage or two are ahead. For at least a few proceeding seconds, you forfeit the right to be upset: “YEEEEO!”

(The clip is from Dime’s Knowing Mixtape 2 video, to answer perhaps the most-DM’d question in the QS inbox.)

But Will is more than just an announcer of good times. As you likely know, he is profoundly insane at skateboarding, and to commemorate his talents + wrap this summer season of fun, we have enlisted the services of Tyler Warren — no stranger to the curation of good times himself — to remix Will’s footage from the past two or three years.

‘B-Team Documentary’ by Classic Griptape

Making it through 2020 with a morsel of mental health in tact has required all of us to look for silver linings. For most, this meant reconnecting with those we may have fallen out of touch with, due to the hectic pace of pre-COVID life. For the Classic Grip office, it meant rekindling the flame with a childhood flatbar, taking it on a cross-country journey, and giving it the best summer of its life with a ragtag team of Canadian heart-throbs in tow (who you will recognize from Alltimers, Dime et al. edits.)

“B-Team Documentary” is a modern road film masterpiece — an Easy Rider for the the coronavirus age, Thelma & Louise if Louise was a 10-inch-high flat bar bought from a Canadian Tire, or simply Paris, Texas on a skateboard ♥

Alltimers’ ‘Bounce’ Video

Just as Warren Buffett off-loaded his shares in airlines given the foreseeable future of travel, skate companies have began doing the same with their stockades of footage from pre-COVID19 trips. Any clips from far-off lands coming out once we hit the dog days of the pandemic are bound to be dated by default — like, anyone who switched their pants game up in quarantine is gonna have a tough time convincing the skateboarding public that their Euro footage wearing last year’s silhouettes is current ;)

Village Psychic came through with a lovely Jawn Gardner remix, just as we revert back to mid 40-degree temperatures for this upcoming week :) Thanks for keeping us hyped in 2k18, John ♥

We were so naive to think that we could close the lid on 2018 while retaining the innocence of never hearing “Sicko Mode” in a “Summer Trip to New York” montage *facepalm* Jk, jk. The Chef boys from Milan came through in the eleventh hour and released a montage from their summer here.

Lukas Reed, the creator of this past summer’s all-Everson Art Museum video, “Mecca,” met up will Bill Strobeck on a cold day at Syracuse’s most famous skate spot to discuss his history with the plaza for a Bobshirt-esque video interview.

“E-Money” tracked down nearly five minutes of Will Marshall loosies for a remix. Wooooooooo!

New footage of Leo Heinert, Luis Tolentino, and the rest of the crew in “Crudo,” the raw footage promo for Rodney Torres’ company, Torro.

More feel-good moments: a one-minute 2018 recap via Chico Brenes.

Akira Mowatt, Charles Lamb, Robert Lim and some of the locals have a iPhone edit from their time in Shanghai. We were there for like a week and skated maybe half of these places? Place is as wild as everyone makes it out to be for spots.

Another one for the ever-increasing scroll of fun Upstate New York videos this year: “Tailgate” via Buffalo Dave.

Bronze dropped a quick edit of Nick Ferro leftovers from It’s Time.

New Era has a new commercial with the S.O.T.Y. and his dogs.

Some New York clips in the un-used footage reel from Pete Spooner’s Skating Is Easy video, which is premiering in Minneapolis later this week.

Jenkem asked skate shop owners about what we can do to keep them around for as long as possible.

On the minuscule chance that you missed it, Wade Desarmo, the World Champion of Skateboarding has a new full part for Grand Collection in which he’s looking solid as ever.

QS Sports Desk: John Wall playing like he doesn’t want to get traded to the Knicks and fade into obscurity in two years because of it.

Alltimers ‘No Idea’ B-Sides — Boston, Canada, Barcelona

And so, the prolonged afterlife of a full-length video released in 2018 comes to its close: the final “B-sides” clip.

No Idea was the video that earned Etienne a Gucci polo. These are the bits that didn’t — in fact, they didn’t even earn anyone a Ralph Lauren polo. B-sides are the U.S. Polo Assassins polo of the golf shirt hierarchy, and these are the ones that took place on various filming trips to Boston, that time E.T. got stuck in Spain for ten months, and Canada. Alltimers for Adidas available in skate shops now.

Filmed by Rob Harris and Corey McNeill.
