Released 16 years after the first video came out, 'Baker Has A Deathwish Part 2' is the follow-up we've all been waiting for as the old guard, including Andrew Reynolds, Spanky, Erik Ellington, Elissa Steamer, Jim Greco and the rest, usher in the new generation with hectic full parts from Zion Effs, Brian O'Dwyer, Vince Palmer, Casper Brooker and more. Don't be put off by the hour-long run-time, it's worth it we promise!

It's pretty rare for a videos filming to be just as bonkers as the tricks on display but by now you should already expect that from Fritte Soderstrom's 'Jante' series. The latest episode sees the lads take the ferry over to Helsinki where they work their magic on a wide variety of spots, from pristine ledges to children's play areas, with help from some of the local legends including Jaakko Ojanen, Eetu Toropainen, Alexsi Suovaara and more.

New Balance Numeric had one helluva year in 2023, releasing a load of new pro shoes as well as welcoming some all-time greats to the squad, and now you can relive the madness with their Year In Review video featuring some of their top hits from throughout the year from the likes of Franky Villani, Tom Knox, Andrew Reynolds and more.

Top-quality looseness from Ville Wester in his new Nike SB part as he takes his one-of-a-kind trick selection on a worldwide rampage alongside a load of his Nike homies, including Hugo Boserup, Oski, Cyrus Bennett, Antonio Durao and more. That ender's absolutely nuts.

Continuing to age like the finest of French wines, Lucas Puig has treated us to a new Morocco-based part as he test drives his latest Adidas pro shoe around some bangin' seaside spots with maximum style. Is it just me or is he looking more and more like Fred Sirieix as the years go by?

Experience 13 minutes of unhinged, chilli-chomping chaos in 'Dranochugger IV: Capsaicin Warpath', the latest video from Bob LaSalle's hot sauce brand, Satan's Drano, packed with nunchuck-twirling boardslides, hot sauce warpaint and all manner of spicy manoeuvres.

Lola's Hardware have teamed up with the Y-Town Playaz for a new video featuring 11 minutes of stylish Japanese shreddery in Kobe and Yokosuka from the likes of Shintaro and Masaki Hongo, Jinnosuke Okada, Reese Barton, Ryan Thompson and more.

Felix Soto showcases an extremely stacked lineup in his new West Coast video, 'Feather', featuring legends like Dill, T-Funk, Tyler Pacheco, Leo Bodelazzi and even some rare Kader footy alongside a load of the local heads.

Tai Wepa cruises round the streets of Napier and Hastings for New Zealand's Arcade skate shop, coming away with a minute and a half of footage from just one work. Not bad.

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.
