In case you’ve been under a rock since last Monday, Neema Joorabachi’s Til It’s Gone video is online in full.
“Oh, I definitely wasn’t cool enough for Zoo York back then. I was just some weirdo out on Long Island.” Long Islander, Frank Gerwer, is the latest to get Chromeballed. Frank’s Number Nine part from 1995 is a great lil’ time capsule.

Wait, so Ben Chadourne was Skater of the Year all along? Knew it! Sorry, Keith (and Mark.)
They began demolition on the East River Park Amphitheater last week :( Alligator Ledge is blocked off, but you know, it’s Alligator Ledge 🐊
Something …not good seems to be afoot at Blue Park.
A wild ender on Pyramid Ledges, Tribeca street crossing lines, and newfound FedEx choreography in Jasper Stieve’s incredible new “Visitors” part for Picture Show. Thought it was gonna be the Dua Lipa version of that song for half a sec 😝
The Broth boys out of New Orleans have a new edit out called “Haunted,” with an ender part from Philly Santosuosso.

Limosine [sic], the much speculated-on company born out of the exodus from 917 via much of the same roster (Logan, Cyrus, Max et al. + some new teamriders), released a five-minute teaser for their upcoming video ❤️
This one deserves way more burn on the skateboard media circuit: “blast!” by Vancouver-based videographer, Chance Swainson. Starts off with Dustin Henry and his brother, continues with a whole slate of new-gen Vancouver dudes, and has an awesome ender part from Tremaine Glasgow — with incredible #musicsupervision the whole way through. Can’t remember the last time I wanted someone to land a trick as bad as Tre’s boardslide on the wood fence.
Rest in Peace Virgil ❤️
Skate Jawn has a feature on Jody’s Spot, the D.I.Y. spot built by Fred Gall in his New Jersey hometown, which the world first saw in his “Out There.” Please sign the petition to keep the spot from being destroyed by the city for no good reason.
Put Will Marshall’s line at the Museum — as seen in his new Dime part — in the Museum Line Hall of Fame. Kickflip front crook is insane too.
Best city for skate edits in 2021? Marseilles, no doubt. Here’s #anotherone from the Raskal dudes: “Hellos Dias.”
It’s the “picture of Rihanna on vacation as a Monday Links headliner bc shit is slow” point of the summer…
We’re up to 68 parts on the QS One-Spot Part Map!
“I remembered from like being a kid and being like ‘Why would I fucking count how many times this dude pushes,’ but then when I saw the Andrew Allen stats and there was like flannel stats and shit I was like, ‘Yes! Fuck dude, thats awesome. I’m not the only one counting weird shit.'” The statisticians at 4-Ply crunched the numbers on all of Frank Gerwer’s footy, and got an interview with the man as well. We need to do a Frank Five Favorite Parts…
The Village Psychic dudes got Steve Brandi to talk us through his Static IV part.
Eby Ghafarian has a new part up over on the Vague site.
