Bearded and Slightly Beweirded with John Rattray


Scottish pro John Rattray treats us to a different perspective of himself skating today and growing a beard in this new clip from his Predatory Bird blog. In his own words:

Every now and again Jupiter and Venus are in conjunction in the western sky. Rare shit like that occasionally coincides with me getting a trick that might be worth dropping off at Zero and dumping into the Cold War folder. In between those scarce moments, in order to avoid plunging into the deathly-dark pit of boredom and depression, I tend to make videos inspired by skateboarding. This video is a collection of self-portrait clips shot over the course of a 3 month period in which I completely forgot to shave. The more observant among you may glimpse flashes of severe joy and inner pain throughout.

P.S. It doesn’t have to be Jupiter and Venus, it could be any rare celestial configuration, a blue moon for example.
