Yesterday saw hordes of skaters take over Cardiff's town centre for our 2022 Go Skate Day event. We took a kicker round town to open up a load of new spots and it's safe to say everyone killed it. Big up everyone who came down! We'll have the writeup and edit online soon for anyone who missed the chaos.

Whole lotta legends in the new Parisian full-length from James Cruickshank, including FA/Hockey pros like Vincent Touzery and Caleb Barnett, UK legends like Casper Brooker and Jamie Platt, a surplus of stylish Frenchmen, and many, many more. Your favourite skater's probably in this video, and if they're not then you might need to reevaluate your pick.

Get a glimpse of the (somewhat dystopian) future of skate videos with the galaxy-brained new offering from Late Nite Stars. Filmed by viral sensation Trung Nguyen (you know, the guy who did that darkslide to Natalie Imbruglia) the video has a heavy EDM soundtrack with a load of equally heavy New York skating from the crew. The future is now.

After some of the parts have been slowly trickled out over the past few weeks, Magenta’s latest visual offering, ‘Magentapes’, is now available to watch online in full. As to be expected, the video features long lines, fast feet, and cutty filming with bangers from all the boys including Casey Foley, Jameel Douglas, Ben Gore, Glen Fox, Leo Valls, and Ruben Spelta.

If James Cruickshank’s new video wasn’t enough for you, we’ve been blessed with even more premium Euro tekkers in the new Haze Wheels x 242 Skate Shop video, which features Luc Boimond, Simon Perrottet, Victor Campillo, and more.

Michael Brunner demonstrates his tasteful trick selection and dedication to crunchy old school visuals in his ‘Slow Def’ part. Apparently he filmed it on a VX and edited it on his computer, before transferring it to the oldest VHS he could find to get those highly sought-after lofi visuals. Now that’s commitment.

Gabriel Summers handles monstrous hubbas, banks and rails in his new part, 'Dedication', as well as offering Zero's interpretation of curb skating.

Very pleasant offering from a youthful crew of stylish Japanese heads, the latest video from Lesque is the first solid piece of evidence that Japanese people do sometimes skate in the daytime.

Joao Galvao takes the SF approach to Brazilian skating, ditching the ledge tech in favour of taking it down crusty hills in his extremely enjoyable ‘Só Força’ part.

Disinfect your brain with pristine German tech from Justin Sommer in his new part for Independent Trucks.

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.
