Skin Phillips on the trick, from Transworld’s “Our Favorite Covers Of 2013 And The Stories Behind Them” (2013):
“This backside 50-50 of Jim Greco was shot during Deathwish’s Skate & Create. Most of our days had been mapped out in some of the city’s landmarks, Jim mentioned to me that he had a couple of things he wanted to skate in Chinatown. So at bird’s fart, we meet Jim in Chinatown, the first day we get the footplant in front of the temple and the next day this on the parking hut. Jim turned up in a suspicious looking van and unloads an 8×4, shopping trolley, some 2x4s and before you can say Jeremy Klien, we have two sweet morning missions in the bag.”

Mike O’Meally on the trick, from Transworld’s “Our Favorite Covers Of 2013 And The Stories Behind Them” (2013):
“Eman had his eye on this spot for years, it’s really heavy. Rough, windy, and steep. It was towards the end of last years Skate & Create with Santa Cruz, the spot is located right in the zone in SC. So after a full morning session on a flat bank on the seawall, Eman got his guts together and started sizing it up—there was some silent apprehension from all present, as nobody knew if it was even possible. We were worried he might get hurt, but nobody said anything, he had that eye of the tiger and any good MC knows his limitations. So after a few roll ups to case out the drop, Emmanuel Guzman cracked one and ran out—it looked pretty painful, just the stress on the legs of running down such a steep bank. Then second try it was all in and he hung on for life or death and made the ride away smooth. I was really glad he handled it so quick, it was just one of those big, ugly brutal spots were you were hoping that nothing bad happened, in fact the opposite was true—he made it look easy. One of the gnarliest things I have ever shot.”
