Go skateboarding day, typically a day of both excitement and dread (for some) in NYC, this is the first year I'm not directly involved with anything but I still couldn't help taking the day off to hop on my rollerboard and push around the city I was born and raised in. Steve Rodriguez was kind enough to drop some knowledge and school people on the history of skate jams in NYC and Go Skateboarding Day and that both are not exactly the same.

 [ 04.04.2011 ]
Luis Tolentino has been recruited at the Berrics

 [ 04.03.2011 ]
Long Island native, Sean Creamer has passed away.. He will be sorely missed. Rest in Peace Sean.

There was a skatejam for Sean at Astoria Skate park.

Check out some of Sean's footage posted by KuatoLives on their blog.

Naysayer and friends keep the halloween clip tradition alive with their latest creation for 2010, "Hollow Weiner".

This is the first year I couldn't make it to the Hellraiser contest, but we were still there in spirit, thanks to our homies at Rockstar Bearings for hooking up the banner!

 [ 10.21.2010 ]
Quarter Snacks has been killing it all summer long with the updates, but I just have to take a minute out to congratulate Kevin Tierney on his checkout in Skateboarder (Dec 2010).

Billy Rohan got an interview over at the Slap Magazine website.

Halloween Hellraiser contest is coming Oct 30th..

 [ 06.27.2010 ]
The weather seems like it's going to be pretty shitty today not that bad, luckily today at 2pm there will be a one hour special broadcast of of the NYC Maloof Money Cup event on FOX. For those who were not there on that long, hot, dusty, loud, and wet (it rained at the end) day you should really enjoy it from your air conditioned living room with a nice cold Gatorade and some pizza.

  - Quarter Snacks relaunch, they're back!

Like every year, June 21st is Go Skateboarding Day, except that this year the Brooklyn Banks is closed so the event will start at 2pm at LES skatepark. Check out the flyer in the forums for more details.

For those who are not into huge crowds and love tranny, check out the Dawn Patrol Jam at Pier 62 skatepark. But with an 8am start time, it might be tough for a lot of people.

If you're tired of hearing about events, check out Joseph Delgado's back to back web-coverage on the skateboard mag and transworld websites.

 [ 06.11.2010 ]
Rooftop Rampage has been postponed, it will NOT be on June 19th, and will probably be rescheduled to July, we'll keep you posted. In other news, Billy Rohan dropped me this link from his trip to china.

While I haven't gotten a chance to edit the photos from the Maloof Money Cup finals on Sunday, I was able to squeeze out this sequence of Luis (Tolentino) doing a fs 360 over the hydrant.

 [ 06.06.2010 ]
Things have been pretty crazy lately, with the opening ceremony, practice, Queens Museum exhibit, and video premeires on Friday and the actual contest on Saturday not including all of the various parties going on throughout the weekend. Today's the AM contest and PRO Finals, so until then, check out some of the photos I got from the past two days.

Opening Ceremony (DAY 1):

PRO Contest (DAY 2):

 [ 06.03.2010 ]
Tomorrow is the ribbon cutting and opening ceremony for the 2010 Maloof Money Cup NYC contest. Tomorrow night after the ribbon cutting event, at the Queens Museum, there will be an exhibit entitled "From the Banks to the Globe: The Geography of Skateboarding in New York City" that will feature a scale model of NYC, skate videos, and a skate through tour of NYC given by Rodney Torres.

 [ 06.02.2010 ]
With the Maloof Money Cup only a few short days away everything in skateboarding seemed relatively positive, but this news nearly slipped through the cracks, the NYCDOT has re-re-re-announced their plans to close the Brooklyn Banks, and this time the closing date is TODAY. If you are in the area today, help verify this, and snap a photo of the banks.

Update:The banks are still open (for now), thanks to Seth Levy and Eby @ Naysayer Skateboards for the news.

 [ 06.01.2010 ]
Especially in this economy, few things in life are free but thanks to Vans shoes, the Andy Kessler Foundation, KCDC skateshop and many supporting sponsors there is a free skate clinic this month. If you or your child want to learn how to shred the gnar and not your face, then register (the registration has been extended) NOW! (spaces are limited) Did I mention it was FREE? F R E E !

 [ 05.29.2010 ]
In recognition of his skill, dedication and accomplishments Zoo York has added Rodney Torres to the Master Division. Congrats homie, it's well deserved.

 [ 05.20.2010 ]
While everyone in New York is enjoying the new Pier 62 Skatepark, Billy Rohan called to let me know that he's been touring China, and while it could have turned into a scene from a National Lampoon's Vacation movie, he told me the guys at FunBoxx.cn have been showing him around to all the spots. Check out some more photos from his trip in the forum and on his blog.

In other news, to quench your deep down body thirst for skateboard videos, Gatorade just released a video of Sean Malto + friends on a road trip from KC to ATL. This is the first part of 2, and they promised that there will be a Chaz Ortiz video to follow.

 [ 05.16.2010 ]
With the high demand for MMCNYC tickets hitting the point where people are trying to sell theirs on craigslist for $200, the people at the Maloof Money Cup have collaborated with local skateshops to get you tickets for free. Stop by Homage Skateshop today at 1pm for tickets.

In other news, tomorrow marks the long awaited grand opening of the Pier 62 Skatepark. Grab your helmet, cruise over there tomorrow and slash the bowl corner.

 [ 05.06.2010 ]
Maloof Money Cup is around the corner, and the building process is under way, check out some of the in-progress photos and video timelapse to see how it's turning out courtesy of Rodney Torres and Maloof Money Cup. With Rob Campbell and Rodney Torres helping in the construction of the new skatepark, you know it'll be legit.

Speaking of Rodney Torres, he just launched his new website, check it out.

Also, if you're looking for something to do this weekend there is the Battle for the Bronx Contest and the Film Me video premiere on Saturday.

 [ 04.19.2010 ]
Now that the weekend is over, some more footage from the King of Spring contest has creeped out on the internet, each clip better than the last.

In other news, Billy Rohan is on Element? Peep Quarter Snacks for the scoop!

So while I was at the New York skateboard media pow wow at Flushing Meadow Park to ask SteveR and Joe Maloof a few questions about the Maloof Money Cup NYC 2010 contest and the ground breaking, I got a chance to meet the owner of the Uptown Skate School. Apparently they emailed me last year (that I never got) to inform me about their uptown skate school appropriately named the "Uptown Skate School" who now features Lorena Lima from 5boro as one of their instructors. So if you're just learning how to skate and you want to shred the gnar and not your face, be sure to check them out for a few lessons.

Speaking of MMCNYC 2010, construction has begun, and "BillyBoneBreak" posted a couple of pictures of their work. There's a lot to be done but these guys are off to a good start for the June deadline.

 [ 04.18.2010 ]
The weather's nice out, so you're probably going out skating but before you do, check out some footage from the King of Spring sent to us by Kellen Dengler for Mighty Healthy.

 [ 04.17.2010 ]
Earlier this week, the weather forecast looked pretty bleak for today's scheduled triple header of events, but according to weather.com it's all good all day but accuweather.com is reporting sketchiness later this afternoon. No matter who you believe whether you're going to the King of Spring contest (open road confirmed the event is still on today), or the Gowanus Grind 2 contest you can still skate/run down to the This Time Tomorrow video premiere (today) if it starts to pour.

 [ 03.21.2010 ]
OG NYC skateboard filmer Howard Glover (aka Howie) is working on a PRE 2K DVD featuring footage from 1997 - 1999 (Some of my favorite years in NYC skateboarding). Peep the trailer, and some vintage footage. (Read More)

 [ 03.19.2010 ]
I've been on the edge of my seat since they announced that the Maloof Money Cup was coming to NYC both with excitement of what the course could be as well as a little bit of dread for what it might be. With a sigh of relief, I am happy to announce that the 2010 Maloof Money Cup NYC plaza design has been released and it's a lot more than I had hoped for. What do you think?

 [ 02.25.2010 ]
With another snow storm hitting NYC, between making pernil and shoveling snow I was able to dig up some old Mike Wright footage from 2003, you might notice a lot of toe drags but with size 13 feet you can't really blame him.

 [ 02.18.2010 ]
RB Umali uploaded a tribute video he made for Harold Hunter. Harold RIP. (Read More)

 [ 02.09.2010 ]
The Maloof Cup will be coming to NYC on June 5-6, 2010. The resulting street course will be donated to the city as a permanent skate park in Flushing Meadow Park. (Read More)

Vans will be releasing an Andy Kessler x Vans Syndicate collaboration which will include the Old Skool "S" and the SK8-Hi "S" models. Both were made with performance "Outlast materials" to maximize protection and ventilation. Constructed of leather and suede, these were meant to be skated. So pick up a pair two and pay homage to a NYC OG. (Read More)

Speaking of collaborations, for me there can never be enough Wu-Tang skateboard collabos.. again and again!

Homage skateshop is holding a contest which could get you access to their private indoor skatepark. With a blizzard threatening to touch down tomorrow, you might look into it.

 [ 02.09.2010 ]
There's a new video in the works coming out of Long Island by Chris Carbaugh featuring our homie Bobby Izzo called "Spring Ahead Fall Behind", if the promo is any indication, it should be worth watching. (Read More)

48 blocks dropped a new interview with Quim Cardona, in it he mentions working on a show with HBO, How To Make It In America. Also sighted in this show are Tyshawn Lyons (of QuarterSnacks fame) and Anthony Cochrane (of Metrospective/OfficialNewYork but now fully grown). Now I might actually have to get HBO just to watch this one episode! (Read More)

The Chrome Ball Incident posted a little walk down memory lane through Rodney Torres' skateboard career.

QuarterSnacks premiered Justin White's latest piece of video gold, Absurd Hawaii.

Nick Sassa and James Reres are both sick skaters, and an even deadlier combo. Their video "DOWNWOPP" (LI NY) is a finalist in the Berrics YOUnited Nations contest. Show your support by watching the video and giving them your vote on the Berrics.

 [ 02.08.2010 ]
People have been asking me to post more content for ages, but receiving the honor of multiple listings in QuarterSnacks' NYC top 100 of the decade list, and watching Sho Ma's tribute video all week has left me both nostalgic and motivated. But with no time and no camera, what can you do? Luckily when you run a skateboard company, although short lived, you stock a bit of unused footage. So I'll be posting old footage that never made it onto the website for some reason or another. Reasons vary from toe drags, tictacs and overall sketchy landings, to shitty camera work or not enough light, saving it for videos that never came out or going to videos that you may have never seen, and then there's the lost tapes or just plain forgotten footage, but you get the idea.

Some of the footage might be a decade old, some of it might be far from perfect, but when you're skateboarding, it doesn't matter. If this website were a DVD, you could consider this the bonus section, so enjoy.. I'll post more as I find it. (Read More)

 [ 01.20.2010 ]
This Saturday there will be a rally at the Brooklyn Banks, and FuelTV will be there to cover it.

Everyone knows the Autumn Bowl, you may remember Mt Weather, well now Homage skateshop has started a private indoor skate park and are accepting new keyholders. The NY Times also did a story on it.

Speaking of Homage and skateparks, if you can't afford a key to the indoor park, they have been lobbying for a free public skatepark in their section of Brooklyn for a while and now need your input for what you'd like to skate there. So now if it doesn't turn out good, it's your fault for not contributing!

In local company news, Naysayer Skateboards dropped a new promo clip, and so did Prize Fighter Cutlery. What I think is great about new local grass root companies is that they tend to bring out new underground rippers that you either overlooked or would have never seen otherwise.

 [ 01.11.2010 ]
Happy New Year to you all, I hope your holidays were both joyous and merry. From the sidelines 2009 may have seemed like a rather lack luster year in NYC skateboarding but it's a new year and I'm remaining hopeful for NYC in 2010. According to the Mayans we only got 2 years left anyway so one of my resolutions is to make more of an effort to be less delinquent in my web duties. Unfortunately I cannot be everywhere at once and I am not a mind reader so if you got news, events, or footage you want added to the website please post it to the forums or email me at news@officialnewyork.com.

It's been a month since my last update but people have been keeping it live and getting the year off to a good start:

  - Quartersnacks reviews the decade
  - Rob Campbell got a new promo footage clip
  - 5boro went south for the winter
  - Billy Rohan opened a skatepark in Florida
  - ESPN's NYC skate guide
  - The Brooklyn Banks are closing this week

 [ 12.12.2009 ]
I'm sure everyone's busy trying to shop for the holidays or just stay warm, but take a minute out tonight or tomorrow to check out the Andy Kessler Memorial Benefit Art Show.

 [ 10.31.2009 ]
Happy Halloween from Naysayer Skateboards.

 [ 10.29.2009 ]
Halloween is upon us, and nicely scheduled as not to conflict with your current Halloween plans the Halloween Hellraiser contest is this Sunday (November 1st). Billy Rohan sent me a new promo clip for the contest. So try not wreck your costume while you're out partying Saturday, and come out to party with us Sunday at the contest.

 [ 09.27.2009 ]
Since it's raining and you can't skate the Unisphere at Flushing Meadow Park one last time, head over to the Autumn Bowl for the Brent Atchley best trick contest for a chance at $1800 (21+ only). Even if contests aren't your thing, they got Asahi sponsoring the beverages so there's something for everyone.

 [ 09.24.2009 ]
I just received an email saying that the Unisphere at Flushing Meadow Park will be remodeled and made unskatable after September 27th. If it's true, get in your last skate sessions in now before it's gone.

RIP DJ Roc Raida

A couple of people contacted me last night about Mike Wright getting stabbed in LES, it was the wrong Mike Wright, we're glad he's ok.

The Uptown Throwdown Showdown is today..

 [ 09.19.2009 ]
It's going to be a lovely event filled September weekend starting today with the DC King of series Chicago qualifier in NYC

 [ 09.18.2009 ]
I've been on a little hiatus from the internet to spend time with the new edition to my family, but I just had to crawl out of my cave to give a shout out to 48blocks.com for dropping this interview with Charles Lamb that features a little remix of recent and unused footage he's gotten. Good to see some homies getting their interweb grind on..

 [ 08.27.2009 ]
Only 3 more days to check out and skate the miniramp at 201 Mulberry, Quicksilver's popup shop.

Zoo York just released Chaz Ortiz's full part from "State of Mind" on MissionG.com, Zoo York will be releasing bonus footage from the film in the near future. Stay tuned.

Martin Wilson just posted a remix clip featuring some footy of NYC locals from various video projects he's contributed to.

The Daily News just printed an article on skateboarding in New York entitled "The Wheel New York".

Our homie Joseph Delgado is now repping Mighty Healthy. Speaking of which, Mightly Healthy just dropped a new website.

Today is the Es Game of Skate in Brooklyn. So hook up a new board, lace up your favorite kicks and get your skate on.

Tomorrow is also the Transworld Skateboarding "Right Foot Forward" video premiere at Homage skateshop in Brooklyn.

 [ 07.12.2009 ]
Today is the Bastille Day event by Homage in Brooklyn. Aside from all of the things to skate, and free product there are also other festivites going on at the street fair. The whole street is closed off for the event so check it out.

Last year was a lot of fun (footage), between all of the good skateboarding and Jeff Pang's colorful commentary how could you lose?

This has nothing to do with skateboarding but I got the craziest thing in the mail the other day.

 [ 07.04.2009 ]
Keenan Milton - RIP.

 [ 06.25.2009 ]
This Saturday is the "Go Skateboarding Day" raindate, the weather looks good so far so make sure to roll through on 6.27.2009. Pass the info on! I actually wrecked my ankle last weekend and tore some ligaments but even if someone has to carry me across the bridge, I'm not missing this event.

If you haven't heard, there's a new board company out of Long Island. It's small but off to a good start, rising from the ashes of the short lived Forte Skateboards is Seagle Skateboards. While there isn't much info to be had about the company yet and their website has yet to launch (not to mention that it's missing the obligatory OfficialNewYork link), but I can say its being built on a foundation of good skateboarding as shown in their premiere web promo. If that's not good enough to start a skateboard brand, then I don't know what is.

Here's some local stuff to check out:
- Seagle 2009 promo
- Zoo York video premiere at KCDC Saturday
- Joseph and friends skating the new Forest Park setup
- New (old) King of Spring 2009 footage
- Slap's (old) article about POETS skateshop

 [ 06.19.2009 ]
This Sunday is "Go Skateboarding Day", but with the weather being what it is a the event has been postponed, the rain date has been set for 06.27.2009. Pass the info on!

If you're stuck inside due to the weather, here's some stuff to check out:
- Footage from Rooftop Rampage
- Footage from Clean up the Banks
- Skateboarder Mag footage from Back to the Banks
- Transworld Mag footage from Manny Mania

 [ 06.06.2009 ]
When you get tired of watching your favorite pros throwing tricks with 1000 of your best friends today at the Back to the Banks contest take a minute to head over to the LES Skatepark (aka chinatown skatepark aka coleman oval skatepark) to check out the new skatures that Team Pain installed thanks to open road, the Tony Hawk Foundation, Steve@5boro, and the NYCSA.

If you're too wasted to skate (or watch skating) from last night's 5boro 13th Anniversary Party, then why not go for a jog at the 3rd ANNUAL "Run For Harold" Bridge Run.

If you missed the Zoo York "State of Mind" Premiere, Eby wrote an excellent review of the evening's festivities.

 [ 06.01.2009 ]
Today there will be an open session for input for the design of the new skate park in Canarsie Park. Stop by and get involved, the more you do the less skate parks in NYC will suck.

While I'm still waiting on the NYPD filmer to get me the footage from the clean up the banks event, Reda wasted no time in getting his commentary on the King of Spring contest.

This week is going to be pretty busy with the new Zoo York Video premiering on Thursday (6/4), 5boro celebrating their 13th anniversary on Friday (6/5), the Back to the Banks contest on Saturday (6/6), and Redbull's Manny Mania (6/7) on Sunday.

Until then here's some stuff to check out:
- Eli Reed's Bangin' on the Berrics
- Danny Supa's Bangin' on the Berrics
- Steve Rodriguez's interview in Time Out New York

 [ 05.08.2009 ]
April was jammed packed with events, both the King of Spring and the Clean up the Banks events were nuts. Luckily this streak of rainy weather is hitting us while we get a short break in the event calendar, but keep checking the event listing regularly because there's new events that can pop up (at the VERY last minute if they don't get me the flyers and details *cough*) any day.

UXA and DC shoes have just announced a new collaboration, so if you're into sneakers, check it out.

Our homie Luis Tolentino is currently rolling in the Gumball 3000 along side Bentlys and Lamborghinis. While you're letting that picture sink into your brain, go watch him mack with celebrities and throw crazy stunts on his website.

In case you haven't noticed, Homage skateshop has finally updated their website.

As far as I remember there wasn't a box marked "skateboarder" in the last census to check, so the government doesn't really know how many of us there are out there. But Open Road would like to give them an idea by registering for the President's Challenge. Who knows maybe the government will realize the error of their ways and stop illegalizing skateboarding and use a fraction of that bail out money for something useful like a skate plaza. It's always nice to have a dream.

 [ 04.17.2009 ]
Congrats goes out to Billy Rohan for being NY1's New Yorker of the week. Despite being a transplant from Florida, that has not stopped Billy from working his ass off to help better the NYC skateboard community. So what's your excuse?

With the "Clean up the Banks" event getting rained out last week, that makes tomorrow's "King of Spring" event the first event of spring. So if you've been bummed on all the foul weather we've been having on the weekends come through tomorrow and have some fun. Peep the preview clip to get psyched on some of tomorrow's set up.

If a full day of skating and stickball doesn't tire you out, be sure to swing by the "Rich Mahogany" video premiere at the Autumn Bowl.

Now if that's not enough to get you psyched to skate, then check out Nolan Lee's throw back clip or this clip of Kyle Iles (also both from Florida).

What is up with all of these productive Floridians? Today is definitely Florida Friday in my books. Thanks to QuarterSnacks for the linkage.

 [ 03.24.2009 ]
Mother nature keeps teasing us with random days of warmth padded with 8 days of bitter cold, but despite that everyone's been busy filling up the 2009 event calendar so keep checking back because there's new info weekly.

After winning the much televised 2008 Dew Tour, Gatorade welcomes Chaz Ortiz to the team. I'm surprised Gatorade didn't try to get involved in skateboarding sooner, but better late than never, and a good start with this young ripper. In this downward spiral of an economy, it's nice to see something new being infused into skateboarding.

It's a new year, 2009, and unfortunately I'm still sick with the same 2008 flu. Aside from all of the usual fruit baskets and ecards, one of the more entertaining gifts I got was from Peter Sidlauskas in the form of Joseph Delgado's Flipmode 4 part in Trife. If you're looking for a copy of the video, they are available at Homage skate shop. I'm also strangely psyched on the Tech Deck Brooklyn Banks Replica I got over the holidays from 5boro, thanks guys! This is pretty old but someone neglected to tell me about this internet gem featuring Number 9 OGs Eric Rossetti, Kevin Candella, and Wes Pulsik.

 [ 12.22.2008 ]
Hope you all have been having a safe and happy holiday, the weather in New York has been far from skate-friendly, but in the spirit of the holidays take a minute and remember to think of others. I've been sick with the flu since last week, causing me to miss the video of the year, Trife (aka Flipmode 4).

If you weren't already psyched enough on the upcoming Halloween Hellraiser contest, then check out this clip and get more psyched!

5boro just dropped a press release and a promo video welcoming Danny Falla to the pro ranks.

 [ 10.20.2008 ]
While some corduroy wearing skaters may disagree, two of my favorite Bobby Puleo parts of all time would have to be his Infamous video part and his part in the La Luz video. Jay Maldonado (who created La Luz, and is one of the people responsible for getting me into filming.. and who showed me how to do half flips back in the day) was kind enough to upload the full La Luz video and some other assorted projects he has worked on.

While I was waiting in line at the OG chicken and rice plate spot for dinner, I ran into the Quarter Snacks crew. This reminded me that they were so kind as to inform us that Astor Place (the cube/Alamo) will be renovated to accomodate a public (sitting) park and in turn no longer accomodate skateboarding. The spot that has the least to skate, is one of the spots that have hosted the most skaters (not to mention some of the best) in New York City's skateboard history.

NYC's landscape is changing faster and faster and the list of lost skate spots is growing longer and longer, like WTC or the small banks (at the brooklyn banks) and now possibly the unisphere at Flushing Meadow Park and even more recently I heard that the big banks will undergo a major renovation (TBD) but Steve Rodriquez has assured me that it will be mostly restored (and possibly enhanced). So if you're done getting nostalgic while reading Police Informer and watching La Luz, get out there and skate while you can because the next thing you know they're going to start skate stopping metal curbs.

While it's old news that Danny Falla was going pro for 5boro, it's new news that his board has finally been released and is now available at your local skate shop. It's also his birthday this weekend, so look out for the homie and scoop up one of his boards so he can buy himself another beer.

The Uptown Throwdown Showdown contest is tomorrow and is the first skateboard event of fall, while some of you have probably never skated north of Central Park hopefully this event will encourage you to explore what rest of what this city has to offer.

One of tomorrow's contest prizes is a trip to Woodward skatecamp, it's every teenage boys dream, non-stop skating at one of the best skate parks you'll ever get to skate and I'm told being able to hang out with the girls at the gymnastics camp doesn't hurt either (*as long as you're both the same age, and not violating any laws). If you've never been there, or have no idea what I'm talking about then check out this clip that the guys at Instant Winner / Acapulco Gold put together from their summer trip to Woodword this past summer.

The city is proposing to turn the water back on at the Unisphere in Flushing Meadow Park for good.. but as one of my friends pointed out, it is unlikely that it will be on 24/7/365 in our current financial crisis. I'm more worried about the fence idea people were throwing around. (discuss)

On a brighter note, thanks to people like Billy Rohan and Steve Rodriguez, planning has begun to repair the LES (Coleman Oval) skatepark, because I'm sure you all love the giant pot holes in the park. With that said, things only happen when you get involved.

In other news, my friends Louie (Louie) and Lamonte Macintosh were quoted in a recent NY Times article on skateboarders and their shoes. (discuss)

Never Forget...

TransWorld Skateboarding Business, January 2002 - New York - Area companies and shops rebound after September 11

 [ 09.06.2008 ]
While I normally only report on NYC related news, you don't have to be from New York to feel great sadness over the loss of another skateboarder. Rest in peace Van Wastell.

 [ 09.05.2008 ]
If you haven't seen it already, Epicly Later'd dropped their premiere episode for season 2 featuring Gino Iannucci. Before I finished typing that last sentence, they dropped the second episode (out of ten).

On a sadder note, Coney Island Astroland park will be closing for good this Sunday (9/7/2008), head over there while you can.

 [ 08.27.2008 ]
In case you missed the CCS DC demo at Coleman skatepark over the weekend, DC was kind enough to film and post a clip of the festivities.

Speaking of DC I just got a pair of the new Biltmore, it's a combo of two of my favorite shoes.. the Wenning and the Howard. These are my favorite shoes from DC out right now, at least until they re-issue the original Lynx (keep dreaming).

The Biltmore were supposed to be the Brian Wenning's second shoe but as many of you know, Wenning is no longer on DC, rumors spot him wearing several brands over the past few weeks but we can all assume that he won't be shoeless for very long.

The Quarter Snacks crew have been making regular skateboard media updates all summer and while I love skateboarding as much as the next person (probably more), the total sum of that does not compare to this recent piece of cinematic gold.

If sitting here staring at my broken video camera wasn't painful enough, Steve Marino @ Square Films really grinds the salt in the wound by showing off his new HD camera in his latest clip. Yes I'm jealous but what I'm really wondering is when he's going to rename his website "Rectangular Films".

 [ 08.18.2008 ]
It was another exciting, jam-packed summer weekend for skateboarding here in New York, in case you missed any of it, here's a few highlights which include video and/or photos:

- Back to the Banks
- Redbull Manny Mania

In other news, Charles Lamb spontaneously dropped off my crackberry buddy list without a trace, reports indicate that (via Taji's blog/QuarterSnacks) Charles, Taji, and Billy Rohan have popped up in Europe and are shredding the gnar (amongst other things).

Zoo York just dropped a teaser for their new video "Zoo York state of Mind".

 [ 08.09.2008 ]
I've been relatively busy lately trying to drop new product, but I finally found time to capture and roughly edit the summer event footage for your enjoyment:

  - Bastille Day - 2008
  - Go Skateboarding Day - 2008

Speaking of videos, the New Thirsty video definitely floored some people and I for one cannot wait to get the DVD when it comes out. Quarter Snacks hit us off with some newness. I don't have anything new to add to what's already been said about the major accomplishment (and utter disappointment by some) that is the new Traffic video, all I know is that I watch it every day and wish I had it on DVD.

 [ 07.19.2008 ]
The summer event calendar has been pretty full, and this weekend is no exception, so if you've got nothing else going on in your life tomorrow (Sunday) you should definitely check out the Throggs Neck Skate Park Skatejam 2008.. <<

 [ 06.20.2008 ]
Go Skateboarding Day is tomorrow but even if you're not coming to our event, you should make an effort to hop on your board and go push somewhere.

In addition to the all day skateboard event, there will be a 21 and over after party at "Supreme Trading" (no relation to Supreme(TM)) in Brooklyn with a special guest appearance by Slick Rick.

In other news, QuarterSnacks dropped a new clip followed by an even more awesome Kirsten Dunst post. StickupKidsNY also kept us in the loop with their status for the month.

 [ 06.10.2008 ]
From the same person that brought you the Long Island original "$20 off no tax", Steve Fletch is dropping a new straight-to-internet release for Forte skateboards, "Slowpokes". There are four, two person, parts. Each part will be released over the next 4 nights, starting tonight and ending Friday. Leaving the past behind, these new videos have an entirely different look, feel, and vibe than his last video.

 [ 06.08.2008 ]
It was 98 degrees on Sunday at the Brooklyn Banks, in the shade. It's not even officially summer yet but if Sunday is any indication then it's going to be one hot summer. If that's not enough, then the sweat and haze permeating my lens should tell you something.

 [ 06.07.2008 ]
Billy Lynch took a road trip to Baltimore for a week with his friends from Long Island to skate and were nice enough to drop off all of the footage. I'm testing out this high resolution clip, so the file size is a little bigger, if you want to watch it more than once, please save it to your computer.

 [ 06.04.2008 ]
If you had any questions about the upcoming Rooftop Rampage contest then this video of Billy Rohan and friends should have all the answers you need.

 [ 05.31.2008 ]
Bobshirt.com recently interviewed one of Brooklyn's favorite sons and recent father to a son of his own, Jeff Pang. Never being one to pad the truth with fluff, he says a lot of what's in the heart and mind of many a native New Yorker.

"People claiming New York City when they don't even live here; it's embarrassing. I'm not going to say any names but it is pretty pitiful."

I was flipping through some old mags and I decided to add some of the print press MetrOfficial has gotten over the years in some form or another to the "about" section.

 [ 05.29.2008 ]
Being allergic to milk AND lactose intolerant for me milk is ALWAYS a very bad choice, but in the case of new websites MilkWasABadChoice.net is a pretty good choice.

Steve Marino recently posted a commercial he shot for Thunder Trucks with Luis Tolentino over at SquareFilms.com (Hosted by Official New York).

 [ 05.28.2008 ]
The second annual "Harold Hunter day" 2(008) was a huge success, it gave everyone a chance to celebrate Harold's life through fun and skateboarding. If you weren't able to make it then check out and enjoy the footy I just uploaded and some photos from the day. If you didn't make it then you missed out on one of the best shirts ever made, it's basically a license to act crazy when you're wearing it, it's what Harold would have wanted.

In other news, I got some new product in the other day. I was busy all day unpacking boxes but I snapped a quick photo of them with the digicam so you could see what they really look like.

 [ 04.30.2008 ]
QuarterSnacks dropped a nice little clip that is topped off with Charles Lamb's European vacation.

StickupKids(ny) dropped a few new clips, some have some good skateboardering and some don't.

Puzzle Video redesigned their website and posted a whole mess of new video content.

The King of Spring contest kicked off spring right and was a lot of fun. In case you missed it, peep the footy from RB Umali and Steve Marino.

 [ 04.08.2008 ]
Warm weather is starting to break through and that means it's time for the NYC skate scene to shake the chill off and get out of hibernation. To kick off this season's event calander, 5boro is having a demo at NJ Skateshop, as with most 5boro events I predict there will be a lot of bro-ing down, sick skating, and yelling.

Our friends at 2nd Nature skateshop will be premiering their first shop video through out this month. Between Doug Brown, Brian Brown, Steve Marino, Mike Alexander, and the rest of the crew I might have to see it twice.

The media department at Zoo York (aka RB) has been pretty busy, not only did they drop a pretty funny skit but they also released some new footy from Eli Reed and a montage from their trip to SF. Fuggedaboutit.

I'm fashionably late in reporting this (mainly because he didn't tell me) but Jeremy Cohan has blessed us with an outtake clip from the fashionably late to be released Chapman video. In other news, my Jeremy Cohan news source, Quarter Snacks will be cutting a "best of" video to be released with the Watermelon 2 video (which will now be referred to as the QuarterMelon video).

 [ 03.19.2008 ]
It's about friggin time but Zoo York has finally added Boston/NYC transplant Eli Reed to their amateur team.

 [ 03.12.2008 ]
Good things really do come to those who skate, New York magazine named Homage skateshop in Brooklyn the Best of New York Shopping 2008: Best Hangout That's Also a Store. Congrats to all of the homies at Homage.

 [ 03.10.2008 ]
If you're in Philly or can make it there on Wednesday be sure to go to the Focus "Rise and Shine" video premiere. Rumor has it that there's a decent amount of NYC footage in the video.

Speaking of Focus skate mag, Rodney Torres is the guest editor for this month's issue.

 [ 03.08.2008 ]
I've been pretty busy lately but I just noticed that Zach Malfa-Kowalski won the Slap "Focused" contest. As the winner he'll be a Slap staff photographer for six months. If you thought it was hard enough to get in touch with him before, now it'll be impossible. Congrats Zach!

One of my favorite people, Billy Rohan, now has his own blog. With gems like Taji bodyslamming Gary, you can't lose.

 [ 02.06.2008 ]
Washington Square Park has been a long standing part of NYC skate spot history, but now it's history. They say they are just moving the fountain 23 feet to center it with the arch. While I highly doubt the OG bumps or ledges will be back any time soon, one can always dream..

 [ 02.05.2008 ]
Rodney Torres dropped me a link to this recent interview he had where they spoke about Harold amongst other things.

There was a time when everyone skated at the Banks, chilled at Astor Place, had one of these stickers on their board, some of the Zoo York team were actually from New York, Menace Tech was the shit, and Axion footwear was hotter than Nike. If you remember those times then you should check out the blogs at PoliceInformer and BobShirt.

Speaking of Menace (RIP), the City Stars revival is finally a reality, I'm sure I'm not the only one who is interested in seeing how this develops.

 [ 01.25.2008 ]
I was checking out 48 Blocks and I ran into a bunch of recent NYC related interviews with some of my favorite people including Billy Rohan, Huf, and Scot Schwartz.

When people talk about east coast skateboarding North Carolina isn't on the top of most lists, but Post22.com is back to help change that.

Our homie and Official alumni German Nieves has been getting into big things lately, amongst other things his latest project is a promo he produced for street wear brand 10 deep..

"Deathbowl to Downtown" is more than your average montage of New York skateboarding. Instead this documentary hopes to offer an entertaining, eye opening, thought provoking take on why the action on New York's dirty, grimy, and hectic streets represents skateboarding to millions of skaters and non-skaters worldwide.

Speaking of NYC skatebard montages, Steve Marino dropped a new clip on his website.

In the small world of New York skateboard paparazzi, photographers are outnumbered by filmers 10 to 1 (maybe more), it's a thankless job filled with little reward.

I've been missing in action, but here's a few things that you might have seen that are new to me, kinda..

The Harold Hunter book by Reda was originally just for friends and family, but we all know Harold wasn't exactly a shy guy so Reda decided to share some love with the rest of us poor slobs. Good looking out.

The flipmode kids are back, and theys alls growns up. Watch out for the Stick up Kids because you're about to get jacked..

I feel like today is the "where are they now" of little kid filmers.. because Stefano also just dropped a new clip from Florida.

Not to be outdone by their former arch-nemeses (arch-nemesii?) QuarterSnacks.com just pulled a jedi mind trick ninja move and used all of the little kid skatesite clips against them. hi-YAH!

There is going to be a New York Skate Movie and no one told me? WTF!

I ran into Luis on the train and he told me that Etnies collaborated with Shut and put out a white/black/gold rap-high for their anniversary. It'll probably be real limited and already sold out by the time you read this.

Take a minute out to remember a man who is responsible for about half the skateboard industry as we know it: RIP Fausto

 [ 03.31.2006 ]
One of those "other" websites just dropped a teaser for their first full length video, I don't know what mode they have their camera flipped to but it looks like it could be good.

 [ 03.07.2006 ]
So I was flipping through an old Thrasher mag, and I ran into this old Pat Smith "Angry, Young, and Poor" ad. Since those days Pat's a lot older now, owns a car, but he's still pissed.

He continues to shred the streets with this friends on Coda Skateboards. I really like that some of their boards have non-standard modern shapes, check 'em out.

 [ 03.06.2006 ]
In case you didn't know..
  a) Billy's NUTS!

    already, get on it.

If you've been skating long enough you sometimes get nostalgic and wonder what happened to some of the skaters from "back in the day". Sometimes you hear vicious rumors about them going to jail, becoming a drug addict, or an accountant, or sometimes their friends spam your forums with their new website. Fortunately, Matt Bell only suffered the latter fate with flower pot head (dot) com. <<
