Quartersnacks, an online epicenter for the skate culture of downtown New York, never cared about “best-of-the-best skateboarding.” Instead, with acute self-awareness and biting humor, it chronicles the exploits of everyone bound together by a common interest in skateboarding in New York. Life isn’t a high school movie where a crew of the best skaters in town exclusively skates together and terrorizes the losers. In New York everyone skates with everyone else–“talent” is secondary. Quartersnacks captures the energy of a session in the city with your childhood friends, some younger kids you just met just last year when they moved here for college, their friends visiting from out of town, and some token pros, all skating together.
Quartersnacks was founded in 2005 by a generation of New York skaters who grew up with the internet–sharing spots on message boards, and meeting people online to go skate with in other parts of the city. Since then, it has become the anti-authoritarian authority on East Coast skating. In 2014 Nike SB released a limited Quartersnacks edition dunk. In fall 2015 Quartersnacks will celebrate it’s 10th anniversary.
