Oliver Barton on the trick, from Transworld’s “Our Favorite 2012 Covers & The Stories Behind Them” (2012):
“My favorite cover of 2012 is Nick Garcia’s hurricane in Las Vegas. This monumental slab of concrete dropped in the middle of a downhill ditch has been around for a long time, but few people have really skated it. The first time I saw this spot was in one of my favorite skate photos of all time, a black and white image of Phil Shao ollieing off the deck into the bank shot by Lance Dawes.

It is amazing looking at Lance’s photo and seeing how much the valley in the background has been developed. Most people in the past have skated this spot with bigger softer wheels or a wooden roll in, Nick had the option of both on this day but he chose to roll in on some 52mm Spitfire classics, a fact that might seem a bit irrelevant here but when you’re at the spot you can see it makes all the difference. Of all the issues we put out in a year, it seems that the am issue cover is the most heavily competed for and Nick’s hurricane beat out some heavy contenders, so it was cool for that reason, but it was the cherry on the cake when the Element video Future Nature dropped and not only did Nick have the last part but this was his last trick. I love shooting photos with Nick–his skills on the board are plain for all to see but he’s such an uber human to be around that getting a photo ran of a trick he’s hyped on makes it mean so much more, I can’t wait to go out skating with him again.”

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.”
