The Interview of the Year in 1984? Gotta give it to Blender. 50-50 into the channel at Lance's, on PVC cope.

Euro Skate Camp '84: Hans "Puttis" Jacobsen, frontside boneless in Sweden. Mike McGill invented the 540 here.

Slappo, tuck-knee flapper, 1984 style.


Hawk was the master of the old Combi pool. Gotta be 1982—little kid, nice air, gnar-zone pool.


Pete "Kiwi" Gifford, layback over the bridge of death at Chantry's in South Lake Tahoe after a long night of drinkin' and playin' quarters. Kiwi had great style and the best quote in any skate mag, ever: "I just get in there and commence goin' for it."

Cover boy Jeremy Leabres front blunts through the kink and slides through a 16-page jaw dropper of an interview. Ben Raemers backs it up with a 12-page interview which leaves no doubt that he's one of our country's most valuable imports. GX1000 scrubs away at London; Volcom crushes some cobblestone in Portugal and Vans sends some notes from their video base camp. Fall may be coming but this issue is gonna lift your spirits, kid.Add this one to your collection.
