Jeph Howard‘s been in this game for a long time. Seen the trends, bladed thru them all..
He’s a salty dog, definitely deserving of some praise. The pride of Minnesota ;) I am stoked to introduce Jeph Howard as the newest Razors Pro. Filmed by Dan Knapmiller, Michael Garlinghouse & Blake Cohen. Edited by Dan Knapmiller.

This year Razors UK looked to develop the younger generation of our future more than ever. With this in mind UK rider Scott Quinn organised the Young Blood competition.
This gave young guys 15 and under the chance to show what they could do. The response was immense and the standard of UK skating at under 15 is unbelievable.
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.

quoting Brett Davies:
Me and Alex Burston set out to film for this edit for a while ago although the majority was filmed in only four or five sessions. Alex is the kind of skater you want to film with, he can get five or six sick clips at different spots easily in under 2 hours.
He is also a perfectionist and will not stand for sloppily landed tricks just to get the clip quicker, basically he’s perfect to film with.
Thanks to Sam Brookfield for filming a couple of second angles and also Scott Hallows for providing me with some of Lawrence Badgers clips so that we had enough to get this finished up.
Also don’t forget to be at the MCR street comp Alex has throwing alongside side Nick Lomax on the 2nd of July it’s sure to be a big day for Manchester skating.
Previously: Razors Alex Burston SL Skate.
Alex Burston from Manchester (England) is one of the fastest rising stars in the European skate scene.
Over the last 2 years he was winning various contest such Laced, Chosen Few and Boneyard Jam in England, Ghetto Games in Latvia, Open Street Comp in Moscow and the Pony Cup in Denmark.
He was touring hard and putting out killer edits. His GC section showed the world what we already knew: Burston is here and here to stay.
To celebrate the hard work and dedication Alex has shown we are proud to bring you his first pro skate.
