The Atlantic Drift mons are back and better than ever as they weave their way around the streets of Bangkok with the OG crew being bolstered by Nik Stain, Cyrus Bennett and Max Palmer; you really can't beat that lineup. Plus, if you were wondering what happened with the planned Atlantic Drift board brand then you can get the inside scoop from Jake Harris in his new Thrasher article.

The unbeatable partnership of Dan Fisher-Eustance and Quentin Guthrie are back with a follow up to his Free part from 2020, showcasing Dan's extensive shorts collection and unrivalled repertoire of spine-bending ledge tricks backed up by Quentin's VX mastery and some bangin' THPS-esque animations. Everything about this slaps.

Two of the finest brands from the other side of the world have joined forces in what's probably the best foreign-exchange scheme ever conceived with Pass~Port and Evisen meeting up in each other's homelands for their incredible new 'Hot~Pot' video. Make sure to check out the full article on Thrasher and in the latest issue of Vague for more shenanigans from this impeccable link-up; collabs don't get much better than this!

'Yellow Hornet' sees a strong squad of young Japanese legends, including Kyonosuke Yamashita and Shintaro Hongo, descend on the city of Tottori - the home of another Japanese legend, Hiroki Muraoki - to make the most of the city's ridiculously picturesque spots. Is there anywhere in Japan that doesn't have spots?!

Celebrating the new Nike SB x Tightbooth Dunk, Ryuhei Kitazume takes his signature blend of Tightbooth eccentricity and good, old-fashioned technical power to the streets of Japan in an impeccable edit overseen by Tightbooth mastermind, Shinpei Ueno.

Catch all your favourite Carhartt-associated Aussies (and a lovely Sylvain Tognelli cameo) in Geoff Campbell's latest video, 'Stake Out', which features Raph Langslow, Digby Luxton, Ben Lawrie and Riley Pavey laying waste to a load of Melbourne spots.

Yet another bangin' new edit from Makke Bengtsson, 'GrushöG' features all your faves including Heitor Da Silva, Aleksi Suovarra, Gabriel Bjørsvik, Simon Källkvist and more to give you your weekly dose of that sweet Scandi steeze.

Hilda Quick is back with 'Drafts Vol. 3' featuring a load of the North's finest - including Izzy Almond, Dale Starkie, Will Sheerin, Connie Gascoyne and Ali Watson - at home in Leeds and on holiday in Barcelona and Copenhagen.

As if Brazilian skateboarding didn't already provide enough to be envious of, child prodigy Matheus Mendes has just dropped an absolute barn-burner of a part at the ripe old age of 14 just to remind you that these guys really are built different.

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.
