Sunday saw the first ever Urdd Urban Games take place in Cardiff and it's safe to say everyone killed it in the comp. Big ups to Jojo and Ru Richards who took first and second in the under 12s, and the good homies Jordan Sharkey and Dan Hill who took first and third in the pro category, but we all know Lloyd was the people's champ. Just a shame the comp ended up being cut short.

Last Resort have solidified their position as the best skater-owned shoe brand with their impeccable new offering, ‘Alv’s Angels’. Featuring all your favourite skaters, like Jesse Alba, Dane Brady, and our mate, Billy Trick, this one’s guaranteed to get you hyped.

Skateboarding's equivalent of Lady and The Tramp, Supreme and Antihero, have teamed up again for a presumably expensive clothing collection, but luckily they've also treated us to a bangin' edit that you won't have to sell your kidney to enjoy. The clothing might be overpriced, but you can't put a price on new John Cardiel and Julian Stranger footy. Kinda sick they gave some random kid the ender too.

Catch some of the very handsome Levi’s boys in Puerto Rico, documented by master lensman, Romain Batard, with all the usual tech from Charlie Munro, a load of French trend, and wallie wizardry from #CSCShopDragon, Conor Charleson.

‘Roughers Connective’ lives up to its name, as the crew - which features Akobi Williams, Soma Sugiyama, Anthony Gordon, and more - charge through some serious East Coast crust. This one will make you think twice next time you complain about Bute.

Premium new offering from the Sovereign Sect, Habitat’s ‘Chrysalis’ video stars Zac Coyne and Sean Evans, supported by cameos from Austyn Gillette, Stefan Janoski, Silas Baxter-Neal, Mark Suciu, and the rest of the gang.

SK8MAFIA young gun, Alex Willms, has been promoted to the pro ranks with a hectic new part showcasing his ATV tekkers as he handles all manner of sketchy setup. Props for the underwater gangsign too.

Bust Crew have dropped the third instalment of their 'Road Heads' series, featuring loads of savage skating and plenty of good times with the homies. I don't ever want this series to end.

We do a fair bit of urban DIY here at CSC, so we were really hyped when we saw Polly Ledge Repair Co, who’ve created their own fast-setting putty that’s specially optimised for repairing spots. Check their latest video, ‘Delay’, which features heaps of Aus-based bangers from Jarrad Carlin, Gabriel Summers, and more.

Treat yourself to some eye-pleasing vertical action from Jimmy Wilkins and homies as he celebrates being turned PRO AF for REAL.

Witness Sam Mason powering his way through a load of Northern crust in his new 'Hangar' part.

Satisfy your cravings for stylish Japanese night footage with the slappy-intensive new clip from Kento Okamoto.

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.
