Sunday saw our 12th annual Plaza Comp go down and it's safe to say everyone absolutely killed it. As always massive thank you to everyone who came down and made it a sick day. Keep your eyes peeled for the video and write-up coming soon!

Coinciding with the launch of their latest collection, the legends over at Skateboard Cafe have come through with another full-length for the ages. 'Tenor' features Sam Nobbs, Dom Henry, 'Rancid' Harry Ogilvie, Layth Sami, Ollie Lock and the rest of the boys showing us all how it's done. 

Check out a selection of some of the finest ladies in skateboarding - including Nora Vasconcellos, Samarria Brevard, Nicole Hause and Breana Geering - as they show off their subpar baseball skills before heading out on a tour of the Northwest, hitting up a load of iconic destinations along the way. Congrats to Nicole who got turned pro at the premier too, very well deserved!

Join Mike Mag as he travels round some of Europe's finest skate destinations, giving us an insight into his 'Own Little World' in this highly enjoyable three-part extravaganza.

Italy has the Ratz, New York has the homies network, and now apparently Germany has its own crew of talented little rascals in the from of Bug. Based out of Hamburg, the Bug crew have come through with a bangin' new full-length filled with a lovely mix of stunts and shenanigans that's guaranteed to get you hyped.

More top-tier skating out of Brazil this week in the shape of Arthur Ribeiro's 'Vento Bravo' part, in which he comes through with some seriously stylish tech and tasteful trick selection.

Bustcrew has treated us to a short but sweet clip of Gilbert Crockett from their 'Bodyfiller' full-length last year, and of course it's filled with extremely powerful skating and even more powerful trou.

Tyler Appel has come through with some very enjoyable raw footy of Kader smoking loads of weed in Paris and just generally being the best.

Catch the Glue crew doing their thing in Boston with Leo Baker, Trish McGowan and the rest of the gang bringin' some serious flavour.

Despite the fact that their latest full-length is still warm, the GX boys are back with yet another video. This time the squad headed to Portland in the hopes of getting down with the locals and conquering the city's infamous crust.

The full recap of this year's Vans Shop Riot in Leeds is now online so you can see all the UK's finest skate shops competing for the highly coveted crown, except for us because we didn't get any clips. Oops.

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