Bringing you the latest and greatest skateboard news from the last week, including some retro Collins Boss footage, Stussy in Hawaii and a new Alexis Sablone Converse shoe.

Don't usually include Vague's Throwback Thursday videos in these but when it's our mukka and number one Holsten Pils consumer, Jake Collins... well, it'd be rude not to. Witness Jake breathe fucking fiyah in a vintage part for Witchcraft Hardware, that's so old that it was originally posted on Vimeo, featuring clips all the way from Cathays to California. Call him Mr. Worldwide.

After bagging the cover of the latest Free Skate Mag, Patrick 'Rocco' Rogalski has come through with a banger of a part (alongside an interview on Free) that's guaranteed to significantly boost your hype levels. The man loves a back noseblunt.

Stussy bring the summer vibes in their new 'Hawaii 23' video featuring an impeccable squad of legends both old and new. It's not every day you get to see Lance Mountain skating alongside Hugo Boserup, Diego Todd, David Stenstrom, Gabe Thompson and more.

Two-for-one Japanese dopeness this week with the new Y-Town Playaz clip, 'Yanny Tape', featuring the Hongo Bros and their homies, as well as 'Love Bullet', the new clip from Toriotoko which features an even heavier lineup including the likes of Shin Sanbongi, Hiroki Muraoka, Tomohiro Ueno and more.

Euro correspondent, Nico Tavella, has treated us to an exposé on lesser-seen Milanese skate spots starring the likes of Davide Holzknecht, Oskar Rozenberg, Aref Koushesh, Mattia Turco and a load of the local fauna as they do their best to not just skate Centrale all the time with mixed success.

After a suitably sophisticated event at the Guggenheim and a mind-bending new ad to celebrate, Converse have announced a new Alexis Sablone pro shoe, the Converse AS-1 Pro, which basically just looks like a New Balance 550 if you ask me. Either way, huge congrats to Alexis!

Mason Silva goes full send in his new 'Take A Lap' part, using his monstrous pop to lay down some bonkers NBDs that few others would ever be able to step to. This geezer just doesn't stop; it's nice to see an exception to the SOTY curse.

One for the nerds: Solo have sat down with the legends behind 4Ply Mag to talk all things data and skateboarding for all the big brain skaters out there. Interesting stuff if you're a massive nerd.

Whole lotta G-shit in Andrea Dupre's new part, from buttery SF hillbomb lines to powerfully stomped Euro tech with no shortage of creativity. Just good, proper skating.

Elijah Akerley turns it up to 11 in his appropriately-titled 'ALL GO, NO SHOW' part for Independent Trucks with a load high-octane hell-riding that's sure to raise some hairs. 

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