Bringing you the latest and greatest skateboard news from the last week, including Carve Wicked's first ever full-length, a new Static VI teaser and Street League's sketchy alt-right connection.

After two absolute belting premieres, the first ever full-length from Carve Wicked is now online for your viewing pleasure. Featuring the talents of some of South Wales' finest, including Sam Pulley, Jake Collins, Lloyd Houston and Paul Jenkins, and masterfully filmed by Harry Deane, we shouldn't have to tell you this one's a must-watch. Massive congrats to Jake on getting the cover of Companion and turning pro for Carve, keep your eyes peeled for when his decks and the rest of the CSC x CRV collection land in store!

Ohhhhh shit! Josh Stewart and the legends at Theories of Atlantis have just released the teaser for 'Static VI' and we couldn't be more hyped! If you're unfamiliar, we definitely recommend checking out some of the other videos in the series to find out what the fuss is all about.

Yet another lesson on skateboarding and architectural history courtesy of Ted Barrow this week in his third instalment of 'This Old Ledge', this time taking a look at San Francisco's Bay Blocks. And if that's not enough skate history for you you can also check out the new '15 Years of Potrero' video.

Quasi are back with another banger of a full-length, this time featuring a few fresh faces, like Jon Rowe and Jason Nam, alongside some of the usual heads. Kinda gutted there was no Jake Johnson footy though I can't lie.

Important reading courtesy of the lads at Vague: Jono Coote explores the sketchy alt-right politics of Street League's owners, Thrill One Sports, and the potentially negative impact SLS' streaming on equally sketchy social media platform, Rumble, may have on young skaters. Pretty sinister shit.

Absolute banger of a part from Aussie prodigy, Corey Young, in Cameron Fraser's 'Arcadia', filled with a load of delicate two-wheeled manoeuvres and more than his fair share of pinch-based wizardry. Shame it's not the first of the month really.

Another absolutely wham part from one of Brazil's CPTMAFIA crew, Felipe Munhoz's 'Devaneios' part is full to the brim with powerfully stomped tech bangers including a fair few tricks that you don't see every day. Good shit.

Sink your teeth into a new Aus-based Ace Trucks video starring Nick Boserio and Robert Schmitt as they take advantage of some fairly esoteric Southern Hemisphere spots.

Short but sweet new clip from Magenta's Shogo Zama featuring all the frantic night-time lines and quick-footed wizardry you expect from someone who is both Japanese and on the Magenta team.

Mexico City continues to dominate the 2023 skate video meta, this time with a video from the local Decline crew showcasing the city's wealth of often intimidating spots.

Pop Trading Company offerings are always a treat and their new 'KING & EMILE' video keeps the tradition alive with a minute and a half of stylish Dutch weirdness from new team riders, King van den Ban and Emile de Vos.

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.
