First things first, we wanna say a huge thank you to everyone who came out for our Go Skate Day 2024 event on Friday, we're gutted it ended up getting cut short by the rain but we've been pretty lucky with the weather in recent years so it was bound to happen sooner or later. Also, special shoutout to Hemmy for taking over the dreaded mic responsibilities!

Unless you've been living under a rock this past week, you've probably already heard about 'Everything Is Normal', the incredible new full-length Sirus Gahan has put together for Polar Skate Co featuring seven years worth of footage from their various trips to Japan with full parts from Shin Sanbongi and Kiki Kakitani alongside clips from the rest of the squad. We shouldn't have to tell you that this one's not to be missed.

Tampere's Mañana Skate Shop have come through with yet another belter of a video, this time featuring full parts from Ville Nyström and Jaakko Ojanen as well as montages from their trip to Gran Canaria and the El Rio Grind crew as they bring that signature Finnish creativity with a load of unconventional tech.

Following up on his top-tier part in New Balance Numeric's 'Wake Up Massi', Andrew Verde is back with even more Spanish smoothness in his new 'Buenas Noticias' part, delivering three minutes of powerful tech with an absolutely bonkers ender.

Throwing things back to 2015, Quasi have treated us to a plus-sized version of Gilbert Crockett's legendary 'Salt Life' video, beefing up the already exceptionally beefy part with a load of bonus clips from the era. Doesn't get much better than this.

Demonstrating Yuto Horigome-esque levels of nonchalance in his execution, Keyaki Ike unleashes his effortless technique on a load of unsuspecting Japanese spots in his new 'Flowgressive' part, laying down mind-boggling bangers with immaculate style.

The ultimate dream team that is Ben Chadourne and Bobby Dekeyzer have been putting in the graft in Vienna as BDK shows off his timeless style and two-wheeled prowess with a minute of straight bangers filmed over just 5 days.

Russia's Duraboys have headed over to Almaty, Kazakhstan where they've linked up with the local Wallride Skate Shop lads and made the most of the city's impressive selection of skateable architecture with the help of Jameson's whisky. Very nice!

Ahead of the release of their upcoming full-length, 'Debris', Tom Pickard and Source Skate Co have given us a glimpse of the action with a hectic two-minute clip featuring a strong selection of UK legends including Sox, Al Hodgson, Cal Dawson, Harrison Woolgar and more.

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.
