Additional Notes:
Mike O’Meally on the trick, from Transworld – Your Favorite Transworld Skateboarding Cover of 2009:
“In a small town in the forests of Stuttgart, Germany, Colin McKay was shown this little gem of a volcano while on DC’s Live From Europe tour. The tiles were pretty rough, and he even took a mean scrub into the floor, but the tough S.O.B. got back up and spanked a lofty air over the hip, while most of the guys had trouble hitting the lip.”

Additional Notes:
Mike O’Meally on the trick/cover, from Transworld’s “2010 Covers & The Stories Behind Them”;
“Shot in a warehouse near TWS.

It was a big gap and really smelly due to all the pyrotechics and smoke in the warehouse that had nowhere to go. It was dark, so the timing was crucial—getting the flames to pop in just the right time and place to highlight Vince as he blasted across that big gap and into the steep landing ramp.

The nicest thing about it being the cover, was that it was a surprise, as we didn’t find out until the winner was announced at TWS at the awards ceremony for S&C. I think Vince was pretty stoked but he’s so humble I think he just took it in stride. Kelly Bird might have been more stoked!

I think it’s one of my favorites, just ’cause it was so difficult photographically and the gap was really big in such a cramped, smoky, and hectic situation, but Vince made it look easy, which is what a good skater always does.”
