Bringing you the latest and greatest skateboard news from the last week, including Eetu on Pass~Port, Adidas on tour and Trevor Thompson on cellar doors.

Whether you missed our shop premiere the other week, or you just want to relive the magic, Josh Stewart in all his benevolent wisdom has treated us to a sneak preview of Trevor Thompson's part from 'Static VI' and we highly suggest you give it a (re)watch. Unless you're not interested in cellar door-oriented, East Coast street skating, in which case we'd suggest taking a long, hard look at yourself.

God damn, didn't see this one coming! Finnish prodigy, Eetu Toropainen, has joined the Pass~Port team in a completely unexpected but undeniably bangin' act of international relations. The man has always deserved better than Element; definitely looking forward to seeing Eetu alongside the rest of the lads in a new Pass~Port vid!

Highly recommend checking out, 'Corridor', the new Lausanne-based full-length from Eliah Cand. The video's soothing vibes are just what you need to recover from any weekend tomfoolery while Jordan Quiejo's exceptionally tasteful last part is guaranteed to blow your socks straight off.

Leo Bodelazzi has taken his buttery, Brazilian swag all over the world for his new Venture Trucks part, hitting spots from Scandinavia to San Francisco with the ever-talented Pekka Lovas behind the lens. Is it just me or is there a whiff of Jake Johnson about this man?

Despite what the name would have you believe, the new video filmed and edited by Merseyside mega-lej, Vaughan Jones, is actually rather good. 'Not Very Good' features Vaughan alongside Joe Paget, Isaac Gale, Jerome Sossou, Cam Barr and more as they make the most of London's spots before Vaughan headed back to his homeland.

Adidas have rounded up the troops for their latest East Coast tour, hitting up a load of iconic spots and parks from New Jersey to Philadelphia with some absolutely bonkers manoeuvres from the likes of Daewon Song, Alec Majerus, Vincent Milou, Carlisle Aikens and countless others.

Ludicrously stacked lineup in Top Heavy Entertainment's first promo, 'Baggie', which sees the likes of Tiago Lemos, Ryuhei Kitazume, Nikolai Piombo, Diego Najera, Marcus Shaw and more exhibiting some top-tier, bolt-stomping action.

Experience seven minutes of sheer madness from the mind of Fred Plocque-Santos, AKA YEAHLEYEAH, for his new Film Trucks capsule packed with a load of highly unorthodox stunts from the man himself and some of his equally eccentric homies.

Witness the pure, unadulterated power of Frankie Spears as he unleashes a torrent of handrail hammers in his new 'Union' part for Adidas, with a heavy emphasis on lesser-seen fakie grinds.

Shane O'Neill's April Skateboards have supplemented their super-team with the additio of Dashawn Jordan who's come through with two minutes of straight power to celebrate. This definitely makes more sense than him being on Toy Machine.

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