Additional Notes:
Eby Ghafarian on the frontside ollie, taken from his blog (2011):
“We went to this spot one day because I figured someone could film a trick from one bench to the next one (I think Tim Bennett was on deck), and I started playing around on it, trying some trick, then realized that I was getting my ollies easily past the first bench, so I hucked a couple at the far bench, over the middle one and wasn’t too far off. It got too dark that night to see what I was doing, so I went back the next day and ended up getting rained out, then went back another time and kept trying until I got too tired, then went back again and just as I was about to give up for the day, I stuck it. The landing being made of plastic made many attempts just slide across, which was tricky.”

Seu Trinh on the trick, from Transworld’s “Our Favorite 2012 Covers & The Stories Behind Them” (2012):
“This photo was from a Supra NYC trip that I went on. The tour was amazing with the funniest memories of skating, partying and hanging out with the team. Everyone got along on the 3week trip without any problems and got tons of great footage and photos. It’s rare that a trip goes so smoothly without any kinks (a fight, someone flying home early or a moment were someone cries) NYC is my second most favorite city in the U.S. besides Los Angeles, California. I mentioned to Neen that if he ever gets a pro shoe for Supra he should use this silhouette of the heelflip as his icon like Michael Jordan’s slam dunk icon. Neen foot is fully kicked out as if he’s doing a karate kick. He does heel flips like no other and I think he looks picture perfect in the image.”
