Bringing you the latest and greatest skateboard news from the last week, including Yuto's first Tampa win, new Billy Trick part and Kader on Violet?!

Tasteful skateboarding galore in Niels Bennett's new 'Heroes / Helden' (Helden means 'Heroes' in German) which features two distinct sections filmed between the States and Europe by Chris Mulhern and Torsten Frank respectively. There's also an accompanying article on Free that's guaranteed to make you fall even more in love with him. I think everyone can relate to the story about screaming Bobby Puleo's name while off your face on ketamine.

Strobeck's back with another Violet clip and with a load of bangin' Kader clips as well as Kader featuring in the thumbnail holding a Violet board, this could finally be the proof everyone's been waiting for that Kader has left Baker for Violet. Either that or Fat Bill's fuckin' with us big time. But Kader or no Kader, Troy Gipson's the absolute best.

After blowing minds alongside our homie Don Irfan in Grey's 'Hot As Hell' video, the Indonesian prodigy Rubianda is back with an even more bonkers section in the new video from Vans APAC, 'Lava'. Nice to see some more attention being paid to the South East Asian scene and it seems like we'll definitely be seeing more from Rubi in the future.

Shop favourites, Baglady, have continued their tradition of releasing strictly top-tier videos with their new VX offering, 'I'm Sorry G', featuring Tom Delion, Luka Pinto, Daryl Dominguez, Henry Gibbs, Davide Holzknecht and the rest of this wholesome crew laying down hammers at home in London and away on their holibobs.

Sirus Gahan's videos are always easy on the eyes but with a full section dedicated to local hero, Billy Trick, alongside footage from Jamie Platt, Ville Wester, Zach Riley and more certified legends, 'picking up a bug' may just be his best work yet. We love you Billy!

Witness the Krooked team doing their thing on British soil in their new UK tour video, packed with loads of lovely Mike Anderson footage and local guests, Harry Lintell and Tom Knox - the latter of which has now found himself a permanent place on the pro team! Power moves.

After leaving enjoi the other week, Louie Barletta has opened up to Jenkem about the reasons for him making the difficult decision as well as what the future holds for him - including details of his rumoured new brand, Jacuzzi Unlimited.

Yet another banger of a part from 'LENZ III', Rinku Konishi comes through with pacey lines and some typically outrageous kits. You can definitely see a mix of influences from some of Tightbooth's OGs in his trick selection.

'key going' is a very stylish LA-based offering from beloved videographer, Nico Marti, and the LateNiteStars crew, featuring cult favourites like Trung Nguyen, Max Garson, Zak Anders, Gifted Hater, Chandler Burton and more backed up by a very diverse but thoroughly bangin' soundtrack.

Picture Show expand the traditional concept of the East Coast in their new video, 'The Eye', stacking clips from Miami to New York at a wide variety of of cutty spots. Big fan of Jasper Stieve.

Quick clip from Mike Arnold at Stalin Square to celebrate his new adidas shoe and remind us all that he's still the best. Of course there's some mandatory cliff jumping footage included.

The people's champ, Yuto Horigome, bagged himself another trophy for the collection this weekend with his first Tampa Pro win thanks to his usual nollie-based trickery. Guy's an absolute beast.

Lovely manoeuvres from Frog-adjacent legends in Nathan Fayyazuddin's new edit 'County Road 40', featuring Kyle Geldert, Shane Dillon, Chris Milic and more at a load of crusty LA spots.

More insanity from Teddy Seeley this week in his 'Undone' part for Venture. The man is an enigma.

Fabiana Delfino charges hard and fast in her new 'Santa Cruz' part, laying down burly tricks and even burlier bails - seems like taking horrific slams runs in the family.

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