‘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?


Jake Johnson Mixtape

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

 

Quasi Skateboards and Jake Johnson are some firm favorites here at the store. Jake mixes a classic style with a modernised bag of tricks, so when we saw that this remix edit had landed on the web from VHYes we were hyped to say the least. Mixing some of his best clips from the GX 1000 edits, Midfield and various other sources, with cameos from fellow Quasi riders Gilbert Crockett and Tyler Bledsoe this is perfect for that pre skate buildup that you need. Can’t wait for Quasi full length!

Quasi Skateboards

Thursday, August 20th, 2015

 

Ever since the demise of Alien Workshop skateboarders across the world were waiting for the aftermath which came in the form of ‘The Mother Collective’. Everything seemed good in the world until last month when Mother announced they had to change their name to ‘Quasi Skateboards’. Have a look at the ‘Jenkem mag‘ interview with the founder to see why.

Quasi Skateboards‘ main intentions are “Paying the team, independence, free boards. No rules.”. Letting some of skateboarding’s finest let loose in doing what they do best. Sounds good to me. Yes, it’s another board company for you to indulge into, which may be hard as many are popping up every other week.

But let me just put it out there… This is definitely one to watch out for. They’ve already sold 3 months worth of stock in just 3 weeks under-estimating the demand. So as you can tell they’re already flying off the shelves. Later today (20/8/15) you can expect to see Quasi on sale here at The Black Sheep Store. Hyped!

The graphics are looking dope, simple and pure yet the pro models are reflecting the pro to the best they can. Main focus at the minute is the boards but the apparel, that is still strong will increase in time. Focusing purely on skateboarders, really excited to see this company grow.

There’s also word of a video being made which is exciting. Mainly because you’ll see the likes of Gilbert Crockett, Jake Johnson, Tyler Bledsoe and a few more additions to the team in the near future shredding Quasi. Really powerful crew! It’s a shame ‘Mother’ couldn’t have been kept although the way I look at it, its the same brand, only a different name but to be honest none of that will matter in a few weeks. Keep them eyes peeled!

Still not sure what the deal is, well why not watch these two sections from the new Quasi Skateboards team members Mr Tyler Bledsoe and Jake Johnson. Jake’s section from this years Static 5 then a dope Tyler Wu Tang remix part. Take note as these two could be some of the most stylish skaters to set foot on a board. Now a Quasi board…

Etnies Highlight Tyler Bledsoe

Monday, February 10th, 2014

 

 

Portland’s Tyler Bledsoe comes through with his all new pro skate shoe the Highlight along with a whole 4 minutes of fresh footage. Always been a massive fan of his skating as one of the new breeds coming through with serious technical finesse.

 

This is the first shoe from Etnies to incorporate the STI foam as the full sole unit making Tyler’s latest model super light weight and incredibly comfy. Also with the technical heel wrap featured on the outside these are proving great for that extra support. As with his past pro models the Black/Camo colour way is Tyler’s trademark and along with the Red and super clean looking Black/White versions these are sure to be a future classic in the making.

 

Get watching his all new Etnies Footwear section below and prepare yourself to be hitting the replay button on more than one occasion.

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013


 
 
Etnies have introduced a new shoe to the family, the Etnies ‘Scout’ for anyone, anywhere!
Truly a shoe to be worn anywhere, the Scout is made with innovative, durable, abrasion-resistant and high-impact rebound cushioning STI Evolution Foam™. You can buy these in-store at our Church Street Store, Manchester.
 
There is something about the new lightweight, breathable Etnies Scout that the guys on the Etnies skate team are all drawn to. When they aren’t on their boards, this is the shoe they wear while on the road, discovering new spots or simply living life to the fullest. The Etnies Scout has the comfort needed to make it the perfect companion to keep the spirit of adventure alive for anyone, anywhere. The path is yours to choose, and the Scout is there to guide you along the journey.

The all-mesh uppers are so lightweight and breathable that air can freely flow in and out. They also have a fully lined inner making them a great shoe to wear with or without socks. The signature Rap Bar on the side identifies them as etnies, and the Scout’s have an elastic heel support for comfort and versatility.
