Trick: 360 Flip
Spot: Oceanside High 13
Oceanside, California
United States

Footage: Transworld, “The Dreams Of Children” (1994)

Additional Notes:
Dave Swift tells the story of the trick:
“It’s funny how all this went down. I might’ve met Geoff Rowley before this day but definitely had never shot a photograph with him. Geoff was fairly new to California and Jeremy Fox brought him to my house and we talked about places Geoff might want to skate. Oceanside High was the spot and when we got there a few others were already skating. I think Danny Mayer was there but I can’t remember who else. So Geoff rolls up to the stairs and tries a pop shove–which he landed first or second try. He ran back up the stairs and said he was gonna try and 360 flip them, which to me at the time seemed impossible. Well, he put it down in a few tries; the first of which you can hear Geoff say “dodgy” in Dreams Of Children, runs back up stairs and does another, cleaner than the first and that was it. Dudes watching were blown away and this shot landed on the cover of TWS soon after in 1994.”
