Ryan Gee comments on the Cover in chrome ball interview #54: ryan gee (2013)
“The reason for this angle was because there were over 50 skaters in the way of the shot. I figured by climbing up the LOVE sign and shooting down, I’d eliminate the majority of people. The end results were more than overwhelming.

TWS only photoshopped out Fat Bill and Frankie to give it a cleaner look.”

Brian Wenning on the trick, from his Village Psychic Interview (2018):
“It was Gee’s idea to shoot from above. I can’t even believe he got up there, he doesn’t exactly have the best coordination. He’s up there with a Hasselblad in his hand just looking down. Someone from Transworld told him they had an opening for a cover, so Gee took me aside and was like ‘You have the opportunity to get a cover’. So I was like ‘I am getting the fucking cover’. That was the first time I tried it, but it had been an idea for a while. I’ve never even ollied it.”
