Chany is a polite man. The kind of guy who likes to look you in the eye when speaking to you.


No Comply Skate Shop in Austin, TX


Owner, Elias Bingham was there to greet us


Skaters were waiting for Kenny Hoyle outside in the humid Texas air


Pounds around with Matt Miller


Inside for the poster signing


Packed house


“You guys wanna see my wrist?”


Eeeww


You’re my favorite skater!


More T-shirts graced with Tom’s signature


Down the line


Michael Sieben and Spencer Hamilton talk tattoos


A few late arrivals caught up with Zered at the van


Zered with a lil' flatground switch flip for Matt Miller’s instagram


Then bomb the hill to the skatepark around the corner


Zered, backside flip straight out the gates


Spencer Hamilton frontside flips the stair set.  It’s a nine but a Texas nine.


Zered back 5-0 the hubba


Expedition flow rider Frankie Heck went to town on this thing.  Back Smith.


Some kid made sure to inform us that every trick the guys were trying were ABDs.  Zered went ahead and did the boneless anyway.


It was getting dark and the stairs were one of the only well lit sections. But that didn’t seem to bother Taylor McClung on this switch flip.


Frankie nailed the back overcrook in two tries.


Then the session moved over to the tight 1/4 pipe. Chany front rock.


Brianna pushed a lay back to the edge.


Tom and Zered with double 5-0’s, ABD?


Then Tom closes it out with a frontside tap


More moments for instagram

“You guys want some boards!”

740TH1213PC1.jpgIn This Issue
Be careful opening the July 2015 issue because this Vans Propeller-themed beast might just cut your damn fingers off. Featuring interviews with Zorilla, AVE, Rowley, Caples, Pedro, Dollin, Dill, Chima, Trujillo, K-Walks and more, you're probably going to need a crowbar to pry the damn smile off your face when you're done reading this one. In addition, the Visualtraveling crew rides the edge of Arabia, Cab talks classic covers, Neckface celebrates a decade-long party with the mag and Daan Van Der Linden gets the Lunatic Fringe treatment (you're gonna wanna remember that name). There's not going to be any space left on your bedroom walls after you rip the good photos out of this issue. Tell mom to buy more thumbtacks.
Add this one to your collection.
