Oliver Barton tells the story of the cover, from Transworld’s “Our Favorite 2011 Covers & The Stories Behind Them” article;
“Filed under ‘good looking spots that are harder to skate than they look,’ this bump to bar in Los Angeles is in a Latin Barrio. I made the mistake of watching Stacy Peralta’s Crips Vs. Bloods documentary a couple of nights before skating this spot, it’s quite the aperitif before going street skating in L.A. After two nights internet trawling L.A. gang activity, I was clued up enough to know that the “XV3” chicken scratch on the wall where I parked up next to the spot was not a sign of teenage rebellion but a warning that we were in 18th Street gang territory. Their Wikipedia CV is the sort of material that tends to distract you from worrying about flash durations and loading film the right way round when you’ve got a mid-range car’s worth of equipment set-up slap bang in the middle of their hood: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/18th_Street_gang. We bought the people in the building a box of Heineken, kept our fingers crossed and Lucas switch front heeled the bar like a boss. It was pretty dark when he made the trick so he went back in the day to film it, the footage is his last trick in his Pro Spotlight Video part. The photo was shot on Kodak E100vs film with a Hasselblad Cfi 180mm on Mike Blabac’s old Hasselblad 203fe which he used to shoot all the Danny Way mega-ramp photos. I hope that Mike and Danny are happy with how Lucas and I are continuing their photographic legacy.”
