The best skatepark in the world (Spit and Sawdust, obviously) has just turned 10 years old! It's pretty crazy to think Spit has been around for a whole decade now; a whole lot has changed in that time and there's even more exciting stuff on the horizon. Huge shoutout as always to Christian and the team for looking after us for all these years and remember to support your local!

Coming in hot with a fresh dose of Milano Centrale bangers alongside some rare footage outside of Italy, Milan's Rat Ratz crew are back with a new video showcasing their immaculate technique and recent growth spurts with the young legends continuing to grow into their man-sized tricks.

Enigmatic New York skate brand, Stingwater Groes, have come through with a belter of a video filmed all over the States with an incredible selection of legends, including Johnathan Perez, Chris Athans, Alexis Lacroix, Daniel kKim and countless others.

More good shit courtesy of King Skateboards this week, Zach Saraceno delivers hammer after hammer on his global rampage while teammates Nakel Smith and TJ himself come through with the guest bangers.

Hot off the back of his recent circle video, Chase Walker has treated us to some top-quality throwaway clips from all your favourite Late Nite Stars heads. You're definitely doing something right if even your throwaway clips are this good.

Moscow's OKTYABR skate shop make the most of Istanbul's immaculate spots in their new video ‘BOSSFORUS’ video, featuring RASSVET’s Tolya Titaev, Igor Smirnov, Dilip Kharel and more with Pasha Kryukov behind the lens.
