Fritte Söderström and all your favourite Scandinavians are back with another episode of 'Jante', this time seeking out more temperate climes in Portugal. As always the filming and skating are both absolutely next level but this might just be their best offering yet.

While it might be at the complete opposite end of the spectrum in terms of production quality, Sidney's Valencia edit is just as enjoyable with a strong selection of Cardiff's finest delivering some serious flavour to the streets of España amidst plenty of chaotic B-roll. Good shit lads!

Yet another 5-star banger this week, Limosine have blessed us with their new Texas tour video to coincide with their latest drop with Cyrus and Noah leading the charge as the crew make their way around the Lone Star State. Nice to see some textbook Cyrus flick in there.

Scouse turbo legend, Geoff Rowley is back doing what he does best in his new part for his brand, Free Dome, getting surprisingly tech in some absolutely monstrous ditches. For more insight into the mind of this certified lej be sure to check out his interview in issue 4 of Closer Skateboard Magazine.

It's easy to forget just how good Chris Colbourn is but his new 'Flower Suit' part is here to remind you that this man can do near-enough anything on a skateboard, with mind-boggling creativity and no-nonsense hammers in equal measures.

Remind yourself of the definition of 'skitz' with a retrospective edit of Jack O'Grady clips alongside an interview by Farran Golding and some wholesome words from his mates Trent Evans, Geoff Campbell and Matlok Bennett-Jones. Geezer does not mess about.

Join the Habitat squad as they make their way round the Great Lakes States in their new edit, 'Highway Habitual', featuring all-time greats like Silas Baxter-Neal, Austyn Gilette and Stefan Janoski alongside new blood Kaue Cossa, Zac Coyne and Jiro Platt.

Plenty of choice manoeuvres in Marky Numbers' part in 'Minted' with loads of tasteful bank-to-ledge tricks and an ender that'll definitely have you pressing rewind.

Seriously heavy lineup in the new Damage x NJ video with archival footage of legends like Zered Bassett, Quim Cardona, Louie Barletta and John Motta from their 2010 trip to Portugal.

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.
