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.”

Additional Notes:
Seu Trinh on the cover, from Transworld’s “The Story Behind The Cover – Dallas Rockvam” (2007);
“How would you feel if you called me up to shoot a photo of you trying a hammer, an ender, the curtains, the after-blacks, or whatever you prefer to call it, and I totally f-ked up your photo on purpose?

Would you hate me? Would you never shoot photos with me again? Or would you just talk sh-t on me?

I want to ask you a question.

Why do you skateboard?

For the potential money? Fame? Girls? Or do you skate just because you love to skateboard.

Who did which trick at what spot is all I hear nowadays. I wanted to do an article about the pure act of skateboarding.

After I shot these photos, I asked Dallas Rockvam if he’d like to see how they turned out. “Nah, I trust you,” is all he said. I really admired him for not caring about what he just landed, and skating for the love of it.

And with that I say to you, who’s next?!?”
