Kanten Russell.

A contemporary of Pat Duffy.

Kanten was one of the main guys in the early 1990s to push the boundaries of big gap and rail skating. He maybe should have been on Plan B, but let's leave that as water under the bridge at this point. Besides if Chris Miller is your boss, than you are pretty much winning at life.

We've been having problems with the internet at work lately, hence the evening update. There's something ironic or maybe mildly amusing about listening to Hüsker Dü's "Divide and Conquer" while the tech guy figures out what is wrong with your system. If they didn't want you to push the reset button, why did they put one on the modem anyway?

Kanten's daughter Kaelia recently went missing and he and his family are looking for her. More details can be found here: http://skateboarding.transworld.net/1000146556/news/missing-kanten-russells-daughter/

Thought it was important to include this for anyone who hasn't seen it yet. Thanks

Thanks for adding that. I had seen the news alert on the Deluxe website, but I didn't have the time to add anything about it yesterday.

Kanten's daughter has been found. All skateboarders should be happy for their fellow skateboarder.

That's a relief. I hope everybody is OK and nothing bad happened.
