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.”

Cover/trick mentioned in “chromeball interview #46: josh kalis” (2012):
What about that classic backside ollie Transworld cover? Did that ever come out in a video?

No, there wasn’t a filmer that day. That was Skin and I trying to think of a place to skate. Somebody brought up this old Fort Miley-style spot on the other side of the bridge so we went and hit it. With the bridge in the background like that, I wanted to try and get something because I knew it would end up looking tight. Skin was down and that was that.

But that thing was ridiculously hard to skate. There was no pushing to get enough speed. You had to push a little and then make a 90-degree turn while grabbing on to this bar and yank yourself around in order to get speed. That was rough, but also after you land, there’s a slight downhill that immediately turns into gravel. It’s the most pointless thing you can ever fucking skate… but the photo came out dope.”
