Uncle Freddy has blessed us all with a heavy new part in which he hunts down a load of obscure spots as well as revisiting some classics. So sick seeing Fred sober and still killin' it almost 30 years after his part in Sub Zero's 'Real Life'. Is it too early to crown him as SOTY?

Spanish OG, Juan Algora AKA Jura, demonstrates his technical prowess in his new part, 'The Alibi', delivering a relentless onslaught of lesser-seen ledge manoeuvres with immaculate style. Be sure to check out the interview too for some extra insight into his early graff days, running his brand Damage, Madrid's skate scene, and more. 

Take a trip down the LA River with Al Schmidt, Jordan Taylor and the rest of the gang in the latest blockbuster from WKND, filled with some extremely creative spot selection and all the skits you expect from a WKND video. You can also find out more about the making of the skit in Jenkem's interview with the boys.

Loads of good stuff from the talented guys and gals of Leeds in the latest video from master lenswoman, Hilda Quick, featuring a load of Northern legends like Kizzy Yuill, Dale Starkie, Joe Allen, Connie Gascoigne and more.

Always been a big fan of Sammy Montano and his new part for Globe is a pretty perfect example of why you should be too. Man's got style.

More archival goodness from Joe Hiddleson this week with some timeless footy of a young Bam Margera skating Philly in 1995. Doesn't get much better than Bam tanking it through the Philly subway in some saggy-ass cargos.

Catch Jaakko Ojanen and countless other talented Finns in the new video from Mañana skate shop.

The extremely talented homie, Jimmy Silv, has treated us to an alternate version of Joel Banner's part from the HUF UK 'Contact High' video, which is a pretty solid reason to revisit the full video.

Need a reason to carry on living? Well Tightbooth have just released a trailer for the third instalment of their 'LENZ' series so you've got that to look forward to at the very least.

That's enough chit-chat though. Head to the shop to browse the latest skate product and buy now from CSC. Or, check out more of the latest news, videos, and product reviews on the CSC Blog. Safe.
