John Rattray

BIO:

Originally from Scottland, John Rattray is a veritable skateboarding ATV with a deep bag of tricks and a keen eye for interesting spot selection upon which to execute them on, over, down, under, et all. Not afraid to slay any harsh tranny without hesitation, and also not a stranger to the varied urban landscape that cities have to offer across the globe, Rattray really is a well-rounded ripping man of the world. Be sure to check out his site thepredatorybird.com for some clever and interesting and often skate-based posting, and die-hard Rattray fans will also want to check his work in the “Beez” videos as well as the now cult classic skateboard industry parody film, “Machotaildrop“.
