‘Grand Prairie’ 50 minutes of Quasi skateboards with Rizzo, Gilbert, JJ and more

Tuesday, April 6th, 2021

Wow! Not even a quasi-wow either: a full on WOW. Quasi skateboards delivered. When’s the last time that you a) were presented with a 50 minute company skate video? And b) were able to watch a 50 minute company video on said company’s YouTube channel (rather than on Thrasher’s)?
Birthed from the ashes of pre rebirth/post Dill and Ave quitting Alien Workshop – Quasi was Mother first.
Shady copyright claims intervened and Mother became Quasi skateboards. Since their inception they’ve done very little wrong to be honest – big up Chad Bowers.
Grand Prairie serves up yet more evidence, along with a smorgasbord of Midwest crust, rather than the 10 LA spots that are on Instagram every 15 seconds.

Dane Barker opens it up with a two-song banger of a full part running everything from massive handrails to flawless ledge tech. Great music, great style, all round greatness from baldy. Contender for one the most inspired bit of BP spot graffiti in this one too ‘Cops are creepy’.

Bald magician and firm favourite Bobby DeKeyzer follows with a truly mind bending section. This dude has so much board control, it’s almost supernatural at times. Brilliant music choice again too. Lots of prime Toronto marble in this: possibly Covid liberated? Either way, this is one of the most watchable but uber-progressive tech parts that you’re going to see any time soon. Absorb the trauma.

Gilbert Crockett, Jake Johnson and Josh Wilson share a part which is short but heavy (like R2D2 full of gravel) and surprisingly free of trouser violations. Tyler Bledsoe delivers Chicago lines, tech combos and an array of different shoe brands which suggest that some footwear bellend ought to hook him up properly really.
Dick Rizzo’s epic contribution follows an introduction based around a young girl screaming ‘Fuck LA’ and a Hasidic scooter rider eating shit at Flushing Meadows. I mean, that definitely beats ‘I’m Dirk Randomberg and you’re watching 411’ doesn’t it? Strong Eastern Exposure 3 vibes here from Quasi skateboards’ bank manager. Inspiring shit and a cellar door count that Bobby Puleo would co-sign. Quasi skateboards‘ newest pro, Justin ‘WuKeeper’ Henry closes off the proper video with an apocalyptic-scored banger of a part filled with lanky power and exemplary heelflip variations. Brilliant.

Following the 20 minute video proper, you’re treated to a further 30 minutes of behind-the-scene japes, alternative angles, slams, comedy and Dick Rizzo bombing the hill outside the house from The Sopranos.
It’s all worth your time – go peep.

No Al Davis though huh?
