…and the new LocoSkates team rider is… (long pause)… Richie Eisler!
It’s a pleasure to have Richie as part of the team. Canadian Richie currently resides in Barcelona and is our first team skater outside of the UK as we move towards a more international stance both with the team and the shop. Not only do I consider Richie as one of the top 5 rollerbladers in the world he is also a super sick-guy to hang out with. The only two criteria we really needed! We had a Richie/Loco intro edit all planned out for you… until, of course, it rained for 2 weeks straight! Cheers England. Dom West did manage to capture a bunch of skatepark footage of Richie along with Jeff Stockwell though, so watch out for that in the next couple of days. Welcome along Richie! -JE
