LSP, short for Local Skate Photography, is a nice photo zine out of Fort Collins, Colorado, which is--true to its name--filled to the brim with snaps and captions from the area. It looks like the Centennial State harbors a healthy scene full of all kinds of skating, including banks, backyard ramps and pools, ditches, Jersey barriers, ledges, skateparks, wall rides and more. It's great to see kids skating lots of terrain besides just ledges, rails and stairs. (I'm not hating on ledges, rails and stairs, I just believe the old saying that variety is the spice of life.) There's even some coverage of a road trip to Las Vegas and Salt Lake City, so hit up Sean for a copy today. Maybe he'll even tell you what "Can't Fade the Pad Dad" means.

It's really nice to see a youngster like Colin Read mix it up with a little old school and a little new. Not only does Col enjoy commonly seen obstacles like stairs and rails, but he also includes a plethora of natural many pads, banks, wall rides and even a backyard pool in his daily skate diet. We're talkin' lines, footplants and a sweet no-comply pole jam!

I have a couple of questions, though, so Colin, read this: Aren't filmer shadows and park footy illegal in sponsor me videos? Just kidding. And I wonder who's in that car that drives by in the first scene? Ha-ha! Thanks for submitting your footage, Colin, You just eared yourself a free pair of Emerica shoes.--Post King
