By now you should have all had chance to get your hands on a copy of the latest issue of The Skateboarder's Companion - unofficially known as 'The CSC Issue' - which not only features a double-page ad of the newly-crowned Bug 'Ed locked in battle with a giant snake and a Push interview for our very own, Leo Comanescu, but also a 7-page article about our extremely productive trip to Mallorca, documented by the trip's reporter in the field, Don Irfan. With Don's masterful prose and Trix's well-honed lensmanship helping to provide a behind-the-scenes look into the chaos while stirring up suitable levels of hype, the moment you've all been waiting for has finally arrived and the full 'Bug Vs. Snake' edit is now online!

Literally you right now.

Loaded with five solid minutes of clip stacking, can smashing, water park splashing action; 'Bug Vs. Snake' is the cinematic experience of the year (although realistically it should probably be called 'PJ vs. Can'). Starring all your favourite South Walian skaters including Paul 'PJ' Jenkins (AKA The Cardiff Panther), Oscar 'Bug 'Ed' Evans, Jake Collins, Mike Ridout, Don Irfan, Alun Webb, Mike Hellier and Ed Carter, all artfully chopped and screwed by chief selecta, Harry Deane.

Unfortunately, with The Don already injured and Mike Hellier destroying his knee almost immediately we were already two men down before we'd even started. Luckily though, PJ, Bug 'Ed and Collins were more than happy to pick up the slack for everyone else, coming through with more than their fair share of hammers. Not only this, but we also called out one of our reserve squad, Alun Webb, to bring his Barcelona-honed tekkers and even got Ed Carter out of retirement for some background props and a flatground nollie heel guest trick.

Safe to say the boys had an absolute belter of a time soaking up the sun, dicking about in water parks and spilling about 20 gallons of lukewarm lager over themselves, and it was an added bonus that they managed to land the occasional skateboard trick in between. So remember kids, keep spending your money at CSC so we can keep blessing the world with slow-motion montages of Peej smashing cans in half!*

To coincide with the video, we've also got some new, limited run 'Bug vs. Snake' themed clothing. The CSC 'Bug vs. Snake' collection includes a new T-shirt and hood featuring the iconic 'Bug vs. Snake' artwork from our Skateboarder's Companion ad, designed by the one and only, Nat Jones. We've got very limited quantities of these so don't hang about if you want to get your hands on one of these bangers, but luckily for you all you have to do is scroll down to buy!

That's enough chit-chat though. Head to the shop to browse the full range of CSC Clothing and buy now from CSC. Or, check out more of the best skate videos on the CSC Blog. Safe.
