It's been a good couple of weeks for South Wales skateboarding with both Jack Branch's 'Enjoying Bridgend' and Rhys Tweek's new banger, 'Street Code', being released online for your viewing pleasure with almost 50 minutes of goodness from some of South Wales' finest between the two videos, including Jess Young, Jack Branch, Welsh Tommy and countless others.

Tech and hesh collide as Primitive team up with Independent Trucks for their first non-anime-related collab in recent memory, although obviously they had to keep things tacky with a gold truck. On the plus side however, they've also dropped a new video with a load of bangin' footage from Tiago Lemos, Charlie Munro and the rest of the gang.

Baker have treated us to another bangin' video this week, this time starring Figgy, new kid Lyric Bennett and Riley Hawk, as well as a sneaky appearance from Casper Brooker potentially hinting that he's joined the team. Big fan of all these new Baker vids but, come on, you could put a bit more effort into the names.

Romain Batard is back with another 'Giddy' edit, this time documenting an assortment of stylish Frenchmen as they flow around Mexico, alongside cameos from some of the local dawgs.

Free Skate Mag have teamed up with Vans for a new shoe collab which of course means we get treated to a new video. 'Full Circle' features a load of Vans-affiliated legends including Dougie George, Oscar Candon, Notis Aggelis and more as they make a loop around Switzerland.

Child prodigy, Noah Mahieu, shows off his wise-beyond-his-years trick selection in his new part for Welcome, hitting all manner of weird and wonderful spots from curbs to rooftops. Good shit.

The dust still hasn't yet settled from his last part but TJ Rogers is back with a belter of a VX part complete with big shoes, big trousers and big tricks.

Barcelona skateshop, Al Carrer, has just dropped a new video to promote their campaign to make the WTC plaza more skateable by removing skatestoppers and adding in some curbs - which you can sign here if you're feeling charitable.

We've got yet another visual treat out of South America this week; 'Then Again' features Federico Hazama, Matias Gagliardo, Andrew Gray and friends in Buenos Aires and Patagonia with a seriously hectic ender.

'William' is a short but sweet offering courtesy of Helas and William Monerris as he cruises his way round London and Paris with impeccable style.

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.
