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.”

Oliver Barton tells the story of the cover, from Transworld’s “Our Favorite 2011 Covers & The Stories Behind Them” article;
“Filed under ‘good looking spots that are harder to skate than they look,’ this bump to bar in Los Angeles is in a Latin Barrio. I made the mistake of watching Stacy Peralta’s Crips Vs. Bloods documentary a couple of nights before skating this spot, it’s quite the aperitif before going street skating in L.A. After two nights internet trawling L.A. gang activity, I was clued up enough to know that the “XV3” chicken scratch on the wall where I parked up next to the spot was not a sign of teenage rebellion but a warning that we were in 18th Street gang territory. Their Wikipedia CV is the sort of material that tends to distract you from worrying about flash durations and loading film the right way round when you’ve got a mid-range car’s worth of equipment set-up slap bang in the middle of their hood: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/18th_Street_gang. We bought the people in the building a box of Heineken, kept our fingers crossed and Lucas switch front heeled the bar like a boss. It was pretty dark when he made the trick so he went back in the day to film it, the footage is his last trick in his Pro Spotlight Video part. The photo was shot on Kodak E100vs film with a Hasselblad Cfi 180mm on Mike Blabac’s old Hasselblad 203fe which he used to shoot all the Danny Way mega-ramp photos. I hope that Mike and Danny are happy with how Lucas and I are continuing their photographic legacy.”
