Dave Chami on the trick, from Transworld’s “2010 Covers & The Stories Behind Them”:
“My favorite is Taylor Bingaman’s. It’s cool because it’s at a skatepark in Sacramento that Taylor skates a lot, it’s also where I shot his Check Out less than a year before he got the cover. We went there four times to get this with Taylor experimenting with different setups to be able to get enough speed. One time we went there and he could only find three of his soft wheels in the trunk of his car. Months later he said the fourth one showed up jammed inside an old shoe. Sometimes when he was trying it he would bail out of the grind and just drop to flat, it was like watching someone being thrown off a roof.
I’m stoked when I shoot a cover cause it’s pretty hard to get in there with Mike, Oliver, and Seu shooting all this epic shit. We had the mag shipped out to us when we were in Denver on a trip, but someone had already texted Taylor a photo of the cover so the surprise was blown a little. I like how he said in an interview that his favorite thing about getting a cover was rolling joints on it, that’s f—kin’ classic.”
