As we enter our second year of operations here at Isle, it's only right that we acknowledge everyone who's supported us over the past twelve months. To all the distributors, shops, magazines, social media followers and skaters who've picked up or featured an Isle product or team rider – thank you! Extra special thanks to Henry at Grey magazine and Jake Harris for their continued support too.
Speaking of Jake Harris, we'd like to congratulate him and the featured riders in 'Eleventh Hour' for winning 'Video of the Year' at the Bright European Skateboard Awards in January. A worthy winner indeed and we're proud to have had a strong Isle presence within. Watch for more Isle footage from Jake coming soon. Shout to Sam Ashley for winning best photographer too.
You might have already seen them in the shops, but if not, look out for our latest two series of board graphics – the first of our Artist Series with Lee Marshall (see Lee's new website here: www.lamarshall.co.uk) and the Material Series, where we worked up a trio of graphic treatments featuring our Isle logo. Paul's board features model making foliage, on top of a background image of the ceiling panels at Southbank, Nick's graphic takes two different marble textures and Sylvain's board references the Memphis design and architecture group established in 1981.
The Isle team recently went to Athens, Greece for a little trip, the results of which will be featured in the next issue of Kingpin magazine: keep an eye out for that very soon. We're about to hit the studio next week to start producing the next batch of graphics and apparel – we'll keep you posted.
The sun's out and it's warming up a bit over here in London... and on that positive note, we're signing off for now!
