Quartersnacks have blessed us all with an 8-minute banger documenting their trip to Majorca. It’s got a seriously stacked line-up including Danny Brady, Etienne Gagne, Justin Henry, and Nick Michel. Plus, they exclusively hit up spots Brady skated in the Blueprint years which is an absolute treat if you’re a skate history nerd.

The skate world was set ablaze this week with Elijah Berle and Austyn Gillette butting heads over who's the biggest poser. Austyn fired at Berle on the Nine Club - which is probably the first time anything mildly controversial has every happened on the podcast - and Elijah took to his Insta stories to fire back. If you missed out, you can get the full recap and analysis via Gifted Hater.

'Shrimp Blunt' is the new hijinx-packed full-length from the Skate Junt crew featuring everyone you expect from a Shake Junt video and more. With OGs like Theotis Beasley and Dustin Dollin sharing the spotlight with new-school legends like Kader and John Dilo, this video ticks all the boxes.

Thrasher’s Am Scramble is back with a stacked lineup of legends including Rowan Davis, Krazy Frankie, Ronnie Kessner, and more. The boys (and girl) come through with hammer after hammer in this action-packed 20-minute banger. Having to watch that 15 year old tre double flip a double set really left a sour taste in my mouth though, save that shit for the Berrics dawg.

After what feels like an eternity of radio silence from the GX squad, SF's gnarliest gravity enthusiasts are back with a new clip. This time the crew find themselves in Las Vegas where the lack of hillbombs forces them to seek refuge in the city's various ditches.

Brad Cromer has a new part out for Solo featuring clips from his impeccable archive of iPhone footy. This one's very easy on the eyes.

917 are back for the first time since everything went to shit, teaming up with surf brand, Token, for a new multi-disciplinary video. The clip starts with an OG 917 intro for some serious nostalgia, before we're treated to some delightful bits of Alex Olson footy and some snippets of the new squad, as well as some random surfing clips.

Solo have treated us to a really interesting piece about the stories behind some of Alltimers' most bizarre decks, including the Marisa Tomei cruiser and the Puke logo deck.

'Ballroom' is a new clip featuring Hosea Peters with some pretty eye-pleasing New York stunts. Geezer's got the exact same style as Carl Aikens, wonder who ripped off who?

Not one, but two bangin' new videos out of Texas this week, with John Danielson's wholesome 'short-length' video 'Homage', and Roger Skate Co's 'R11VM' which pays homage to the legendary 411 Video Mag and features strong homie vibes.

The EC Melodi crew always come through with the bangers and their new video ‘Sparks’ is another to add to the list. It even have some tasty morsels of Trung Nguyen footage which is enough to make it worth watching alone.

Alex Lawton has come through with a new part for poolroom Skateboards, one of the sickest new brands out of Australia. Alex comes through with some extremely soothing manoeuvres at a range of Melbourne spots before shutting it down with a hectic KFBSTS.

BEAT - the Japanese skate shop run by Traffic pro, Hiroki Muraoka - have just released their first promo, featuring Hiroki himself alongside Issei Kumatani and Shintaro Hongo.

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