8 essential skate videos from the 90s and beyond with Glue Skateboards

The queer NYC skate collective’s top video picks featuring Flip Skateboards, Jay Strickland, and Jacob Rosenburg

The 2021 Dazed 100 – part of Open To Change, a larger platform from Dazed and Converse aiming to carve out visibility for underrepresented voices – is all about spotlighting the cultural changemakers breaking new ground across the globe. It’s about platforming ideas that will enact radical change, and looking at what’s next for the creative industries too.

As part of the programme this year, five of the Dazed 100 cohort will explore their field, their practice, and their hopes for the future in their own article for Dazed. From open source digital archive and curatorial platform Habibi Collective to the groundbreaking South African magazine and agency Bubblegum Club. This iteration sees Stephen Ostrowski and Akobi Williams, of the queer NYC skate collective Glue Skateboards, put together their introduction to skate videos.

Co-founded by Dazed100 alumni Leo Baker, Glue launched with an editorial in Thrasher in November 2020, and have already carved out a name for themselves on the New York skate scene. They released their first full length skate video – Smut – in January this year, ahead of a feature in Dazed’s Spring 2021 print issue.

In their words, the Converse x Dazed 100 grant would be “crucial” to Glue’s second full-length video project. “We would use funding to produce a video including trips for filming street skating,” the collective says. “We want to set an example of queer representation in skateboarding and beyond.”
