One of skateboarding's few literate professionals, Walker Ryan, has taken a brief break from #SkateTwitter to put out his new 'Textures' part which features some seriously tasteful lines alongside a load of mind-boggling switch tekkers. Not sure I really get the borderline-Tarantino-foot-fetish intro though.

Sticking with the Walker theme, Chase Walker has got the gang back together for another flawless NYC full-length, featuring Trung Nguyen, Kyler Garrison, Max Garson, Zak Anders and the rest of the boys backed up by a hectic soundtrack (think 10cc, The Smiths and The Cure in between extreme metal and rave tunes). Very big fan of this one.

Poetic Collective's Aleksi Suovaara has made excellent use of his pristine, feather-footed style in his new part, 'AATSI', to pull off countless moves that few could do and even fewer could make look good. Geezer's basically the Mark Humeinik of Europe.

Been a big fan of Josh McLaughlin since his part in 'Set For Life' and unsurprisingly his new part for Frog is just as enjoyable thanks to his incredibly easy-on-the-eye style and very choice trick selection. The man knows how to spice up a manual.

Jonathan Mehring has put together an incredible new documentary, 'Walls Cannot Keep Us From Flying', exploring how two Palestinians are using skating to help themselves and other overcome the difficulties of living under the Israeli occupation. Very inspirational stuff and a strong reminder to support the Palestinian cause. 

Levon Conkin comes through with Christoper Columbus-level spot hunting (without the genocide) in 'A St.Losers Short' which features countless spots that are crusty enough to shred the palms of your hands through the screen. Good shit.

'Landline' is the latest video from Dial Tone Wheels which flaunts their impeccable team - featuring legends like Aaron Herrington, Jordan Trahan, Zander Mitchell, Jahmal Williams and more - through the heavily nostalgic lens of a VX1000. Now go buy Dial Tone wheels!

Covina's Pawnshop Skate Co are the latest brand to be treated to a Nike SB Dunk collab, accompanied by a bangin' new video featuring Donovon Piscopo, John Fitzgerald, Eric Koston, Guy Mariano, Lance Mountain, Joe Campos (a personal fave) and more. It's nice to see Donovon carving out his own niche with his singular trick selection.

The internet's busiest skate nerd, Farran Golding, has treated us to a Deep Dive into Dick Rizzo's recent Vans Half Cab part, investigating the East Coast influences behind the part and their use of Hi8 camera.

Steve Mastorelli's 'Don't Ask Me When' boasts 20-plus minutes of East Coast goodness featuring more legends than you could shake a stick at, including Fred Gall, Mark Humeinik, Josh Wilson, Brian Reid and many, many more.

Catch Justin Henry alongside some of his Columbus, Ohio homies in Jack Eddy's new video, 'Wax'.

Kristin Ebeling delivers the goods at some proper fun looking spots in her new part for Krux Trucks.

The creative juices are overflowing in Gleb Streltsov's 'Melody' as the crew swerve their way around Moscow and Istanbul. 

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