Just like VHS, DVDs are coming to an end which I think is a sad truth but it is a truth all the same. The amount of online content you get to see in skating is astronomical but there is very little that lives on that you watch over and over like you did when Brain Fear Gone came out.
In my opinion when looking at skating in general, the danger level and difficulty level has declined majorly. I still like a lot of peoples skating but just speaking in general.
But if you look at the best bladers in the world they don’t fall into that general population. Iain Mcleod and myself discussed making a section that we would put out that people would always remember, and truly respect which is a bit harder to do now because of the fast speed of content via the internet.
1 year ago we put together a list of tricks and spots that we both thought was close to impossible. I put the word “close” there because it gives skaters like Iain enough wiggle room to make it happen. I explained to Iain that if we were going to do this together that I would have to be able to shoot it the way I wanted without any interference. He agreed.

Underestimated, sometimes. Underrated, maybe. Out-skated, never. Iain McLeod has been on a professional level for what seems like forever. 2 pro skates, 3 pro frames, 3 pro wheels… and counting.
Always a leader in both the tech and stunt aspects of blading, his ability to land some of the largest gaps, grind near impossible rails, and progress the ledge game further than few could have dreamed, continues to amaze anyone who’s seen him skate.
When asked how he does it, he simply smiles and says ‘practice.’ Fact is, within the 16 years he’s been on blades, you can probably count the number of days Iain hasn’t skated on both hands. This kid loves blading and his skating deserves -scratch that- demands respect.
It is for these and many other reasons that we are introducing the Iain McLeod Pro Skate.
