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.
