CCS Weekly Skate News Roundup
Apr 19, 2013 7:41 PM CDT

Making headlines this week is Jake Brown who shocked the world with the first ever grabless 720 ollie over the 63 foot mega-ramp gap during the X-Games in Brazil last night. It's pretty shocking footage and not a bad renewal for the same guy who shocked the world last time around by falling out of the air from fifty feet above the flat bottom back in 2007. He also happens to have just linked up with new board brand, Life Extension. Not a bad way to start with a new team. 

In other contest news, Stereo's Yoshi Tanenbaum walked away the winner of last week's Damn Am Atlanta. Keep you eyes on this talented young am as he just won a golden ticket to this year's Tampa Am. 

In media news, Skateboarder Magazine has released its first, fully interactive, all digital issue this month with Mikey Taylor gracing the cover. In related media buzz, the elusive Raymond Molinar just released an all iphone filmed and imovie edited video short called Boyz2men. CCS' own Torey Pudwill has an epic feature in the brand new Thrasher chronicling his recent voyage to China. 

In team departures and additions, it appears as if Billy Marks has parted ways with Fallen. Meanwhile, Austyn Gillette has been spotted in Cons. No official word on this yet, but we'll keep you updated as this story develops. 

In addition to redesigning our homepage over at, CCS has officially launched The Forums on The Corner where you can come to get your daily fix of skate news, gossip and dirt. Go ahead and drop a topic or a comment right HERE

With smokers around the world gearing up for the international pot holiday of 4/20 tomorrow, Emerica has launched a limited 4/20 edition Bryan Herman G6 that will be dropping online right here at CCS tomorrow just in time. Check back this weekend to cop it. 

Finally, we're sad to report that Lizard King's loyal pooch Shredder has passed away. RIP Shredder.
