Buntingford filmmaker starts feature movie on 3,000-mile longboard journey
A young filmmaker has started to create a feature movie that will document his journey of longboarding more than 3,000 miles across the USA with his friends.

ASU grad lights up skateboards worldwide
A Valley startup is on a roll, adding some flash to skateboards around the U.S. and more than a dozen countries.
Board Blazers, launched by Arizona State University graduate Greg Rudolph, are LED underglow lights that come in eight colors and self-adhere to the bottom of a skateboard or scooter.
“High-school students and college students really love the style aspects. Their parents love it for the safety,” Rudolph, 23, said.
