After our premiere on Saturday, the latest banger from the Sour Solution crew is now up online in all its glory. With full parts from Barney Page, Gustav Tønnesen, Simon Isaksson, and new pros, Vincent Huhta and Martin Sandberg, 'The Sour Solution III' is full to the brim with genuinely mind-blowing clips. I really cannot emphasise enough how foolish it would be for you to not watch this video.

TJ Rogers came through with exceptional skating and incredible trou (shame about the Red Bull logo though) in his new 'T.J.I.F' part for éS Footwear. With a respectable tech:gnar ratio and extremely pleasant style, this one ticks all the boxes.

Joe Gavin's Maybe Hardware have just dropped their most substantial video to date with 15 minutes of Northern-based savagery from all sorts of legends including Joe Gavin, Shaun Currie, Harry Lintell, James Bush, Dom Henry, and many, many more. You can also check out an interview with the Joe over at Vague for more insight into how he juggles his countless commitments.

Get your weekly fix of Victor Campillo and the rest of the boys as they hit up Marseille and Paris in the latest edit from Maceo Moreau, 'Be Keyfull'. France's most productive crew are showing absolutely no sign of slowing down.

New contenders to the griptape throne, Pepper Grip, have just dropped their first promo with a seriously stacked lineup, including Andrew Allen, Evan Smith, Shane Farber, Jordan Trahan, Carlos Ribeiro, Nick Boserio, and many, many more.

'Papi' is a stylish new offering from the Tangram Division boys, featuring Thaynan Costa, Ibu Sanyang, Juan Virues, and more laying waste to a bunch of European spots.

More French goodness this week with Lucien Genand's insane 'Boardslide Hood' part. Incredible trick and spot selection with an emphasis on quirkiness - like that nollie bump to 50 that's been floating round Insta - this one's guaranteed to elicit a few 'oofs'.

Revisit the timeless style of Jake Rupp with the new anthology remix by Satori Wheels.

Voracious vertical villain, Jimmy Wilkins, has just been turned PRO AF for Real. I guess vert isn't dead.

After being teased with Jaakko Ojanen's part last week, El Rio Grind's 'Mañana' video is now up online in full, featuring hectic skating from the Tampere locals and some A-list cameos from Tyler Surrey, Simo Makela, and Ulph Andersson.

Check out the raw recap of Adidas' Southeast Tour, featuring all your favourite Adidas legends like Dennis Busenitz, Mark Suciu, Carl Aikens, Nora Vasconcellos, and more.
