We figured it was time for a quick update on what's been going on at Isle.
Firstly, feast your eyes on Mark Jackson's latest edit, 'Licence Free', featuring Nick and Casper alongside Blondey McCoy and James Coyle. So damn good, from start to finish.
Tom Knox gets interviewed by Will Harmon in issue 5 of Free. Well worth grabbing a copy from your local shop.
Other tidbits: Chris Jones is over in NYC at the moment, Sylvain and Jacob Harris have just returned from Nicaragua and Shier has recently joined adidas as their new Team Manager.
New Isle boards and apparel are due into stores in the next few weeks. Watch out for the new Exposure series, alongside some special edition dipped boards. Check the latest catalogue here – contact your local store or distributor for more information.
Seeing as people have been searching for the image, I'll just leave this here...
And, in case you missed it, some of the London boys featured in a TWS Park barge video. Check it!
Enjoy your Easter – and if anyone can beat eating seven Cadbury's Creme Eggs in under 60 seconds, get in touch.
Jon Nguyen has finally turned pro – and we were proud to hand him his new boards at the TWS Awards on Friday 22nd January. Congratulations to Jon and well done on taking the last part in the new TWS video, 'Substance'. We're all hyped!
To mark this occasion, Carson Lee created a retrospective edit of Jon's video parts to date: check it out below.
Finally, Isle did well at the BRIGHT European Skateboard Awards in Berlin last week: we took Brand of the Year, Vase took Video of the Year, Tom Knox got Video Part of the Year and our beloved Jacob Harris took Videographer of the Year. To have achieved that in under three years is pretty humbling for us: congrats to all involved and thank you to anyone who voted for us. And, most importantly, thanks to anyone who's supported or believed in Isle.

We interrupt our Christmas holidays to bring you this special bulletin: Vase is now available as a download here: https://vase.vhx.tv
We're proud to say that Vase has been nominated for best video and Isle for best team in the TWS awards. If you've enjoyed our exploits in 2015, please feel free to show your appreciation and give us a vote!
Last, but not least: a huge thank you to everyone who's supported us this year. Roll on 2016!
Vase DVDs are available now in most good skate shops and also online. It's a dual-format DVD – one side is PAL, the other NTSC – and it's a touch over 30 minutes long.
For those without DVD players, there's a digital download coming soon: keep an eye on our Instagram feed for details.
Finally, we'd like to thank everyone who's bought a copy of Vase: the feedback and support is much appreciated by all of us here.
