Nike SB: Gettin' Vert

Second half of KOTR is in full swing. Quick stop in Albuquerque for the meeting point with all the teams, then back on the road to AZ for some pool skating for a day. Just flew into California to hit some vert and some rails.  End of the line: Vegas!

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.
