The Legend: Geoff Rowley
"Constantly progressing in his own direction"

Posted:

Geoff’s on his own trip, constantly progressing in his own direction and forging his own road. I went and bought Extremely Sorry just to see him, honestly. I watched his part, then watched what everyone else had going, and then watched his part again. A couple days later, watch Geoff again. A few days after that, repeat. Geoff’s skating makes so much sense to me. His skating inspires me to say, “Fuck it! Maybe it would be better if I just eat shit right now.” Not really a “What would Geoff do?” but more like, “Fuck it,” and just slam. His approach is so direct. Fuckin’ do it. Don’t even think about it. I admire anyone who can live their life like that. —Marc Johnson

Two covers heating it up this month: Raven Tershy nose grabbing a back tail way over vert at FDR and Figgy getting crooked down a 24-stair monster. Tons more Stay Flared tour highlights inside, 20 pages if you're counting. Other travel tales include an epic Dubai mission for We Are Blood and the Asphalt Yacht Club voyages to Hawaii. Tom K and Frank Shaw both get the Heads treatment and music-wise we got interviews with Morrissey and Slayer, so that's worth the admission price alone.
