CCS Weekly Skate News Roundup | June 7, 2013
Jun 7, 2013 2:53 PM CDT

Despite the fact that this week has shaped up to be a rather slow week in skateboarding news, the industry was abuzz early on Wednesday with the Oakley team including CCS riders Arto Saari and Ryan Sheckler who were clearly getting busy down in Australia this month with the release of Oakley's Fear And Loathing In Australia video and mini-site drop. If you haven't seen it yet, give it a Click and peep the goods. We promise it's worth your time. 

Big news hit the Thrasher Magazine wire this week surrounding San Francisco's legendary Wallenberg stairs. Not only we're two never-been-dones handled there in perfect form, but they were handled on the same day at the same session. Forrest Edwards nailed a switch flip down the monster set then DJ Gaudin followed it up with a face melting switch backside flip. Clearly the bar has been raised at Wallenberg. 

In footwear happenings, Nyjah Huston released his long awaited pro model shoe from DC late last week with an incredible clip featuring a noseblunt slide down Hollywood High. Definitely worth a peek if you haven't already. Stay tuned for tons more Nyjah coverage around the official release of his shoe in the CCS shop in the coming weeks.  

In contest news, Damn Am Los Angeles went off last weekend at Nike's newly remodeled 6th & Mill training facility. When it was all said and done Dylan Williams walked away with the first place finish. In other contest related news, PJ Ladd walked away with yet another title from The Berrics' Battle At The Berrics event. Chalk up another one for one of Beantown's finest. Finally, ESPN's Real Street 2013 launched this week and CCS' own Lizard King is in the running. Click HERE to cast your vote for Lizard!  

Finally in CCS news, the Midwest Mayhem tour wrapped up last weekend with a full five days of skating some of Chicago's illest and most iconic spots. If you haven't seen the recaps, click HEREHEREHERE or HERE to see the goods.
