Bringing you the latest and greatest skateboard news from the last week, including Aaron Loreth PRO AF, Magnus and Gunes' new board brand and Bobby Puleo on Dan Corrigan.

Been a minute since we've seen anything from the man with the hectic arms and even more hectic kits, Magnus Bordewick, but turns out he's been grafting behind the scenes on a new board brand, Sensi Skateboards, with fellow lej, Gunes Ozdogan. Usually pretty cynical about new brands but if it means we get Magnus footage I'm not complaining.

In what's potentially the most based collab of the year, Ace Trucks and Theories of Atlantis have teamed up for a stylish new truck colourway alongside an equally stylish video offering featuring the likes of Nick Rainey, Jordan Trahan, Connor Knoll and Tyler Dietterich. Big fan of Nick Rainey.

The non-stop good content factory that is 4PLY Mag has delivered yet another morsel of enlightenment for eager skate nerds in the form of an interview with cult icon, Bobby Puleo. As always the analysis is proper interesting but surely Bobby's trolling us saying Dan Corrigan's his favourite skater.

Sour's resident Frenchman, Oscar Candon, is back with a bangin' new part doing what he does best: smoking fags and skating banks, alongside a really insightful interview over on Free. 

To celebrate his elevation to the PRO AF ranks, our lords and saviours at Limosine have treated us to a banger of an Aaron Loreth part filmed by Hockey filmer, Benny Maglinao, packed with all manner of insane manuals and steep, urban terrain. 

Japan-based hardware brand, Lola Hardware, have just come through with a belter of a full-length that's, of course, filled with all manner of good stuff, like Shintaro Hongo skating to The Sundays which is basically all I could ever hope for.

Ryan Thompson's 'Texas Three Step' definitely ain't your average skate video with it's line dancing tutorial theme and tripartite structure; there definitely ain't many people who could release three full parts back-to-back (while working full-time) and there's even fewer who can keep that shit interesting.

Big fan of the filming and editing in A Visual Contrafact's new video, 'Water Rabbit', and with a belter of a Diego Todd part to kick things off, this video is well worth 15 minutes of your time.

Loads of typically effortless manoeuvres from Matt Militano in Zach Sayles' new full-length, 'Veil', with more than enough cellar door tricks to satisfy all your cravings. Doesn't get much better than this.

Start your week with a healthy dose of edginess from the EC Melodi crew in their new video, 'Break Your Legs', featuring plenty of ride-on grinds, slams and a soundtrack that's either bangin' or shite depending on if you ask me or The Gaffer.

Experience a Parisian Dickies trip through the lens of top CSC customer, Jake Hayes, featuring Tom Knox, Mike Anderson, Jacob Harris and the rest of the boys stacking clips in between stacking clips.

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.
