Max Schaaf goes low to high on a Smith grind bash at a Fourstar demo in Palm Springs.

Who's pro? Ishod is pro! Check out the clip from Ishod Wair's going pro ambush at the Westchester Plaza in Los Angeles, here.

Years before he reached the pro milestone, Wair came from humble skateboard beginnings like the rest of us. This clip from Real shows how it all began for the young phenom.

Next up, one of the infamous McClung brothers, Taylor McClung has been inducted into the elite Expedition squad. Check his welcome video here for proof of the skills that earned him the spot on the team.

The Fourstar crew hit some street skating and what seems to be a pretty epic demo out in Palm Springs recently. Check out Eric Koston, Max Schaaf, Tyler Bledsoe, Shane O'Neill and more in this clip.

The Fiveboro crew is finally getting ready to unleash their latest video offering. Take a look at this teaser featuring Dan Pensyl, Willy Akers, Jimmy MacDonald and the whole squad, here.

The Omit crew including Chris Cole, Trevor Colden, Peter Ramondetta and Kyle Frederick did a tour through Texas following the Johnny Romano Skate jam benefitting Make A Wish last month. Check out some of the great skating they fit in along the way, here.

The Etnies crew took a trip across much of Europe this past summer and are just now releasing a web video of their travels and adventures featuring the talented feet of Nick Garcia, Jose Rojo, Willow, Ryan Pearce, Albert Nyberg and Sean Malto.

The Habitat crew including Fred Gall, Marius Syvanen, Silas Baxter Neal and Guru Khalsa hit some ditches through Texas in this memorable little clip.

Finally, Pontus Alv takes a very unique and personal approach to a video part and the results are fantastic. Take a look at everything involved in this opus from his film "In Search of the Miraculous." It's parts like this that remind us that skating, at its root, comes from true out of the box thinking. Well done, Mr. Alv.
