Quartersnacks is one of the funniest and most original platforms in skating. They hooked up with The Muska & the sole tech team to talk shoe design and the return of the puffy sneaker.

It is pretty amazing that there are really good skaters in New York that you never noticed before. It is almost like that musician that you heard featured on some songs, but then all of a sudden their time comes and they drop a great album.

Mike Vallely once said that his tricks were like songs and his video parts were like album’s if that is so Marcello just dropped a damn good album.

Is this title a flex or a post-modern declaration of uselessness?
“We are ballin’ let’s randomly go to Paris.” or “We did not know where to go so we went to Paris again.” we certainly don’t have the answers but maybe the video does.

A Quartersnacks back in the day re-edit with footage from way back in the day. In our opinion, this is still the QS re-edit to beat the only thing this might be missing is a guy yelling “YERP!”. Otherwise, it ticks all important “skateboarding in the big apple” boxes.

Quartersnacks is releasing their new collection, “Keep Skateboarding Romantic“, in cooperation with Street Machine, and they flew over to Copenhagen to film this promo together.

Not the first and not the last time, Quartersnacks & Nike SB came together for a brand new collection. To celebrate it the right way you will get to see some skating of Daniel Kim, Cyrus Bennett, Max Palmer, Josh Wilson & more. That sounds like a win-win-situation, right?

We posted the two Quartersnacks Copenhagen offcuts now here is the final result. Filmed by the prolific Johnny Wilson with skating by Ishod Wair, Alex Olson, Bobby Worrest, Hjalte Hallberg, Oski, Andrew Wilson, Cyrus Bennett, Ville Wester, Hugo Boserup, Max Palmer and Ryan Bobier.

Quartersnacks has done it again! After OG’s like Quim Cardona it is now time for the French emperor J.B. to get the QS treatment.

The Quartersnacks guys just put together this Dime compilation and the only question we have is when is the full video coming out?

I can’t clearly remember the moment I first heard of the Quartersnacks website and crew, but it must have been on the Slap forum. I don’t even know if I liked what I saw… Ten years ago I was 18 years old and my vision of what skateboarding was differed completely from my current day taste. Skateboarding nowadays seems to have split into a couple of different directions: from professional film makers that push skateboarding visually to the art side of skateboarding to a more Homeie type of feel. Me as a 18 year old would have disliked what I like today. I hated most older videos, I wanted to see tricks and clean styles and felt like older videos where often poorly filmed and the skating was either sketchy or it wasn’t pushing the envelope.

Off course I didn’t know shit then, but I was eating and sleeping skateboarding. I started making videos with my friends and we tried to emulate Transworld & Girl videos, which is normal when you start creating your own things… I missed the point when the Quartersnacks crew started to push their own agenda and created their own lane. When I started to frequently visit their website, the focus of the skateboard world shifted once again from the west to the east coast, skateboarding in NYC looked cool and the terrain was different from the sun filled schoolyards (cliché alert!) in Cali.

The Quartersnacks crew was a combination of “cool” pros like Spanky, Alex Olson and Zered Basset, but most of the crew consisted of more humanly skilled skateboarders skating the same terrain together. It gave me a behind the scene’s type of feeling that I really didn’t see before. I naively thought pros only skated with pros, the thought that pros have their own clique with high school friends never dawned until I started following the Quartersnacks website. Even back then QS brought out Christmas edits etc. which slowly but surely started to influence my music taste away from Bob Dylan towards Young Jeezy, Rich Homie Quan and more recently Future.

As my taste changed together with the ever changing skateboard bussiness Quartersnacks seemed to grow, they started to make clothing and did collabos with Nike (they played an important role in bringing back the Dunk), QS rose to the top… The best thing about this 10 years of Quartersnacks edit is to see that their growth lead them into Skate pop culture! I am excited what comes next. Happy Birthday!

Quartersnacks has been putting out clips like crazy lately, this one shot by Johnny Wilson of “Horny” and Paych fame. The clip features: Cyrus Bennett, John Gardner, Dom Travis, Ty Lyons, Rob Sissi, Tyler Tufty but more importantly this clip might initiate the return of the extremely oversized big white tee know to many as a as Ghetto Gown.

A Quartersnacks Video never disappoints and it seems like summer just hit New York City… Rihanna, Tompkins Square Park and Alex Olson, just to name a few appetizer.
