Sam Muller on the trick, from Transworld’s “Our Favorite Covers Of 2013 And The Stories Behind Them”;
“Raven Tershy’s frontside ollie to wallride down the pillar was shot on the first night of El Chocolate Tour, a Girl/Chocolate filming trip to Panama, Costa Rica and Chico [Brenes]’s native Nicaragua. We had been skating all day and after dinner decided to check out this spot atop a 9-story parking garage not far from our hotel in Panama City. The parking lot is designed like a big corkscrew, complete with death drops in the middle of the structure and on the outside edge. The guys started to warm up, skating the snake-run of quarterpipes down the winding road, approaching the lip a bit more every time. After getting pretty comfortable frontside grinding over a light on one of the walls, Elijah got a little carried away on one try and almost went flying over the outside edge, saved only by his leg getting caught under the little flatbar on top of the quarterpipes. After coming down from the massive near-death-witness adrenaline rush, Raven got his trick just before we got kicked out by an under-enthusiastic security guard. I thought the skating would be over for the night—we had gotten an epic trick and it was getting pretty late—but on the way back to the hotel Kenny and Vincent spotted some epic rooftop pyramids that were itching to be skated. Little did we know that 30 minutes later we’d all be in handcuffs on our way to Panamanian jail—not a night I’m going to forget any time soon.”
