Additional Notes:
Trick/Cover mentioned in “10 Years After ‘Static II’: An Interview with Paul Shier” (2014):
What was it like skating in Egypt at that time? I mean, the US and British forces had JUST invaded Iraq. Westerners weren’t exactly popular in the middle east. I think we told everyone we were Canadian, remember?

I actually don’t remember this at all, maybe you were just dreaming of being a Canadian.Just getting to skate at the Pyramids was insane, paying off the security so that Kenny could film a trick there was incredible. I am sure not too many people can say they did that or could get away with it now. Check out his old Slap cover and footage from his part in Static 2 ,so sick!”
