Nourish your mind after all the bank holiday boozing with musings on skateboarding and education courtesy of Ben Powell and a load of skateboarding's finest academics in Free's 'Learning Curve(s)' piece.

Shop favourite, Griffin Gass, delivers the goods in his new Seattle-based part for 35th North and Spitfire, stomping a wide array of tech bangers with absolute authority.

Seriously heavy squad in Volcom's new 'Barci Bash' video with legends from all around the globe linking up in the Spanish skate capital, featuring Harry Lintell, Simon Bannerot, Giovanni Vianna, Milton Martinez and more. 

Two of skateboarding's dopest underground brands have joined forces in the new Hardbody x Dancer collab, resulting in a heavy squad hitting the streets of Copenhagen and NYC with Hjalte leading the charge. 

Eddie Claire's new video is absolutely overflowing with sumptuous San Francisco street surfing from the likes of Chris Athans, Josh McLaughlin and Mason Coletti with no shortage of satisfying manoeuvres.

Kirk Gaitskell-Kendrick's (who it turns out played Kirk in 'The Mighty Boosh') new video is a 'let down' in name only thanks to its heavy lineup of London-based up-and-comers. The Jamie Platt influence is strong. 

Another Barca edit this week, the Grand Collection crew have taken their silky styles to the streets of Spain in 'Barcelona Chair', featuring Wade Desarmo, Spencer Hamilton, Brian Reid, Brianna Delaney and even a cheeky Tom Penny cameo.

For their latest 'Followed' video, Pocket Skate Mag linked up with Limosine mega lej, Karim Callender, to watch him do his laundry, set up a new board and go for a wander round some iconic Queens spots. It's better than it sounds, I promise.

The Heated Wheel have dropped their new '5 Minute Full Length' (which is actually just under 10 minutes long) featuring their steadily growing team of legends doing their thing in Mexico City.

Rob Taro has treated us to a teaser of his upcoming full-length, 'Timescan 2', using a load of unused clips from the video - and if the off-cuts are this good then the video's guaranteed to be next-level.

Johnny Purcell has come through with a load of textbook Canadian tech in his new 'Nova Scotia' part, the only thing missing is the triple-XL T-shirts.

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.
