In a world of Instagram gimmicks and YouTube contrivance, Chad Bowers' Quasi Skateboards is a name you can rely on. Synonymous with high quality skateboarding and top-notch video production, it's been that way since day one.
Hailing from Dayton, Ohio and rising out of the (ultimately temporary) ashes of Alien Workshop's 2014 demise, the team of Dick Rizzo, Tyler Bledsoe, Jon Rowe and Gilbert Crockett exists to serve the needs of the discerning adult skateboarder. It is, for want of a less trite term, the connoisseur's choice and their brand-new video 'Simulation' is a choice cut indeed.
Jason Nam opens with harsh east coast winters, reminding us that is won't always be summer, closely followed by Dane Barker, a CeeBlues car jump, Dick Rizzo finding the most creative bank lines and fellow NYC local Josh Wilson keeping it strictly East Coast. Jon Rowe closes proceedings with a Mark E. Smith inspired all-out crust assault and 17 minutes is wrapped up in the blink of an eye.
