Schaeffer Mclean skateboarding in Spain, part II...

Schaeffer's adventures in Spain are inspiring on so many levels -
not least, on this bleak January day, as a reminder of that weird yellow stuff in the sky
 that we rarely see in Blighty!!
  I really must get round to booking a sunshine holiday...

Schaeffer Mclean skateboarding in Spain...

Well folks - here it is!

Schaeffer Mclean's Skateboard Trip to Spain.

"December 2012 Fly to Reus Airport in Northern Spain. Drive 1000 miles south to our destination in Malaga and then back in 18 Days. To make the journey more interesting we stopped at every skatepark on the way.... 24 in Total. If anyone knows any skateparks on this route that we didnt stop at, let us know..... But wait until you have watched all the sections, there will be 6 in total. PS the car in the video is not what we used to get around Spain :) Part 2 Alicante to Nerja will be uploaded very soon, keep checking back....."

Doug Brown, pro skater update...

We were delighted to get an update from USA born & bred pro skater Doug Brown today!  Here's what he had to tell us:

"It's been an amazing year. Countless events with schools, libraries and a handful of visits to hospitals with Athletes for Hope. My latest book Looking Glass Self found itself on shelves in book chains mainly Barnes and Nobles throughout the nation. I had my 20 year class reunion. Outbreak Skateboards released my 11th pro model, the Medallion deck which to date is by far my favorite deck ever produced.

So many highlights from visiting Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall Gang camp to being a judge for the Quota International. TV and radio appearances to having my Beyond the Board exhibit touring libraries... all in 2012.

This is my 10th year as a pro skateboarder. My paying sponsors have been faithful and I continue to ride that skateboard to my fullest. I figured this ride would last maybe a couple years but with tenacity and staying productive I've always kept moving forward, if one door would shut another would open.

My relationship with my skateboard is an important one but nothing is more important than reaching people in a meaningful way and creating positive relationships both professional and personal. Lots planned for 2013 so stay tuned. Thanks truly for the support throughout the years. Best regards, Doug".
