Transworld Skateboarding's staff photographer, Oliver Barton, just did a post of his top 5 YouTube skate videos, and wouldn't you know it, John Rattray's part he filmed years ago when he was on Blueprint Skateboards was the first one.

SLAP Magazine's, Joe Brook accompanied the Kelly Hart and the rest of the L-R-G team on one of their last-blast filming missions for their video up to Seattle and Portland. If you havn't seen the video at a premier spot yet, be sure to snag it when it comes out to catch Kelly's part and Rodrgo TX destroys it with the last part in the video!
A huge éS fan from the UK, Barnaby Fisher-Smith just sent us this photo of himself. Here's what he wrote to us to accompany his photo.
"Just a quick comment for you at éS footwear. I have been skating your shoes for a good few years now and haven't turned back. To date I have had; 3 pairs of Nortons, 2 pairs of Rodrigo TX's shoe, 7 pairs of Accels in various colours (favourite shoe to skate by the way) and have just ordered a new pair of Theory 1.5 in maroon flavour. I would just like to say I am completely thankful and satisfied with every single pair i have bought and owned. I have a love for skateboarding that just cant be filled with anything else, whether it be cruising, having a session with my friends or trying to get something filmed. I even went as far as to have the logo tattooed on my hip (which is another story, kinda as a dare) Also, just want you to know I'm not some sort of lame fan boy. Just showing my love. Keep at it and for the love of god, please continue making the original Accel!"
We'll do that, Barnaby! The Accel is here for life!
