Bringing you the latest and greatest skateboard news from the last week, including Avril Lavigne PRO AF, ReRun in Copenhagen, and The Bunt dunkin' on you.

Ryan Sheckler Avril Lavigne Skateboard Deck Collab - CSC, Cardiff Skateboard Club - UK Skate Store

In what can only be described as the collab of the century, Ryan Sheckler has teamed up with Avril Lavigne for a limited run of skateboard decks through his new company Sandlot Times, making Avril Lavigne the only other pro on the brand beside Shecks himself. Pretty based.

Take a trip to East Anglia with the O.W.L. crew in the second instalment of their 'Villagers' series, featuring the incomparable trio of southern legends, Dougie George, Dan Fisher-Eustance, and Harrison Woolgar alongside mega-hunk and #CSCShopDragon Jimmy Silv and the rest of the gang as they tackle a load of Eastern crust. Good shit.

In the absence of the Dime Glory Challenge, Canada has once again stepped up to put on the best skateboard event in recent memory. The reigning kings of the skate podcast game, The Bunt Live, came through with a serious NBD by combining skating and basketball for a one of a kind jam that only they could pull off. Major props to the Bunt boys for winning their own basketball tournament and immediately flexing on everyone else, absolute legends.

The Quasi skateboards crew continue to experiment with the medium of the skate video in their new banger, 'Heat is Life', which features a mixture of quasi-parts, impromptu curb sessions, random hijinx, and team montages.

Hockey have come through with a new 20-minute video packed with all the edgy imagery you expect from the brand, although with full parts from John Fitzgerald, Diego Todd, Joseph Campos, and the rest of the crew you can't really complain.

Jenkem chatted to 2021's Man of the Year, Trung Nguyen, to find out more about how his life's changed since he did those darkslides, as well as his views on capitalism, graffiti and more.

Victor Campillo in San Francisco? Say no more. Witness the King of Marseille as he makes his Stateside debut, bringing his signature flow to the hills of SF with some insane manny combos and general visual niceness.

Experience some serious trend in the new 'Gumpjunk' video from Alex Kitanoski with a load of up-and-coming London heads, including Ben Keegan, Cass Doig, and Isaac Gale, alongside some seriously edgy music and visuals.

Catch all your favourite Bristol heads in Copenhagen in the newest video from ReRun Streetwear, featuring Jordan Lightowler, Jay Lentern, Jordan Thackeray, and the star of the show, Bear Myles, doing what he does best in the streets of Denmark.

Treat yourself to 20 minutes of Wes Kremer raw footage from the Stee era.

Take a virtual trip to Budapest courtesy of the Rios Crew and their new video, 'Uccsó' for a thorough lesson on trick and spot selection.

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.
