The Week Today, Now - 15/08/2022
Bringing you the latest and greatest skateboard news from the last week, including Louie Lopez at USC, an insane full-length out of Uruguay, and Sk8wine vs. Gifted Hater.
Although skating can often seem like it's doomed to an apocalyptic future of energy drinks, competition-based wackness, and transphobia, Will Miles has given the scene an inspiring vision of a very different and far more positive tomorrow. 'Mamma Mia, Bro' features some of the best young skaters from Europe including Noah Mahieu and Eetu Toropainen, alongside Nils Matijas, Nico Giovannoni and Vince Palmer of Milan's Ratz crew and it's guaranteed to fill you with optimism.
After his incredible video, 'ALL THOSE DAYS', Nico Marti is back with another full-length banger, this time filmed mostly around the East Coast. 'ALL THOSE DAYS' is always on repeat in the shop and it seems like 'be honest' will be too as it features a similarly bangin' soundtrack and equally enjoyable skating from the seriously stacked crew.
In one of the most underwhelming internet feuds to date, mullet enthusiast and serial bad take purveyor, Sk8wine, has locked horns with Gifted Hater, taking to the internet to whinge about the apparent injustices inflicted upon him after Gifted Hater responded to his car crash of a video, 'Why Skateboarding Sux in 2022', via Patreon. The whole thing's an absolute mess so we won't be including a link but I'm sure you can find it easily if you fancy making yourself cringe.
Louie Lopez firmly establishes his SOTY aspirations in his new 'Honor Roll' part for Spitfire Wheels, coming through with a banger filled section filmed entirely at the iconic USC campus in just two weeks. That ender is absolutely psycho.
Guillaume Thibault is back with another bangin' video out of Montreal, featuring a load of mind-blowing stunts from all your favourite Canadians like Charles Rivard, Leon Chapdelaine, Ian Clelland, Zander Mitchell, and more.
No, it's not a new video from Tyshawn Jones' underwear brand, Brick and Mortar's 'Autumn' is a bangin' new video out of Melbourne featuring a load of stylish Aussies showcasing the insane amount of spots the city has to offer.
'Cow Boy' is a very enjoyable Zak Anders part filmed by Chase Walker (the filmer that brought us 'Respectfully') and it's absolutely jam-packed with top-tier trick selection and plenty of style.
CAB Hardware have dropped a new video featuring everyone's favourite skater, Don Irfan, alongside all his Malaysian homies.
Soothe your eyeballs with seven minutes of archival footy of Alex Olson, Jason Dill, and Anthony Pappalardo from 2004. This shit is worth it's weight in gold.
Witness the chaos of the Vans Showdown 2022 with the full recap video.
The Hoddle boys have treated us to a remix of some of the best footage from their newest pros, Digby Luxton and Simon Zuzic, in their new 'Pro Redux' compilation.
It's not often you see a skate video out of Uruguay, but if 'Mal Ciudadano' is anything to go by then the country has talent and style in abundance. Good shit.
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.
