Oliver Barton on the trick, from Transworld’s “2010 Covers & The Stories Behind Them” article;
“It was my first time going to the spot, but we knew each other well through our friend the VX1000. The rail lives in the middle of Beverly Hills, just down the road from Eddie Murphy’s police station in Beverly Hills Cop. It felt like we would get kicked out immediately because there are plenty of expensive houses that look out onto the rail and it was really quiet in the neighborhood. It’s pretty amazing that someone had the courage to cut the knobs off and I’d like to say thank you to whoever that person is. The building in the background plays recordings of predatory birds from Costa Rica when movement sensors are triggered by crows. It’s cheaper, more effective and not as unsightly as putting spikes on every window ledge and wall. It’s an avian audio skate stopper. Anyway, in this frame, Paul is listening to recordings of bald eagles attacking prey, so now you know what he really bumps in his iPod. Paul switch back noseblunt slid the rail in the most rude-boy fashion possible, and Heath Brinkley chose the VX1000 with a Century fisheye to film it with. You can check out the footage of this trick and another six minutes and ten seconds of carnage in Paul’s video part Paul Rodriguez, Me, Myself and I under Plan B Skateboards on iTunes.”
