A Brief Glance

I've just discovered this online magazine and i'm so stoked on it. The quality for an online magazine is ridiculous, really good photos and a super clean layout.
It's put together by Davide Biondani who to be honest, i hadn't heard of. Do yourself a big favour and check it out right now.

Nice fold out cover. Daryl Angel switch pole jam.

The best photos from last months issue, some sick sequences and a hefty Blueprint presence, they have the whole 'Focus' section at the back!

Skateboarder is definitely still my favourite U.S mag, great photos every month and still a lot of film. I'm going to subscribe as i can't find it anywhere in Edinburgh, i suggest you do the same.

Nestor Judkins Interview to follow soon.

Brophy Cliche Ad

You've probably all seen this by now but i had to post it, Andrew Brophy is a beast. I'll take big pop and solid tricks over tech wizardry any day.

French Fred always come up with the goods.


The ipath guys have been and gone in the U.K, unfortunately it was raining when they came to Edinburgh. Things like that give Scotland a bad name, dry for weeks then when a demo is set it rains, always the way.
The shit weather didn't stop the fun though, check Fred Gall getting down with the drink of champions!

They're now making their way over to France, keep up to date with them via the 'Blazed and Confused' blog over at Sidewalk.

For Kieron.....

Terry Richardson, he's no Kanye West but he'll do for the first famous sighting this trip.
If you're not familiar with his work, he takes photos of famous folk, hot girls, and his penis.
