Tony Trujillo Interview With Sidewalk Magazine:
What’s the best spur-of-the-moment Cardiel trick you witnessed during those early years?

The one that comes to mind is that Thrasher cover he had doing an indy nosebone over the oilcans on the wet vert ramp, with a jump ramp to bank or whatever. He stacked up the cans and rolled in on like a vert ramp but half of the width of it was just roll in. It was like a BMX roll in, and he did it when it was soaking wet and just blasted this indy nosebone and with like sixty millimetre soft wheels. It was nuts. You couldn’t even ride across it without slipping and he’s rolling in, that was gnarly.”
