Mark Gonzales has the intro, but Phelps says it best: "Look up ripper in the dictionary, and you'll see Tony Trujillo. He'll go to your fuckin' park and blow your joint out." Tony Trujillo, 2002 S.O.T.Y.
This classic part comes from the summer of 1999 and our "Scorching Summer" video. It belongs to Diego Bucchierri and his Argentinian bro's. Few talked about and maybe even attempted that double set, but only the Butcher nailed it. Valor!
In honor of the recent Baker/Deathwish tour, I unearthed this classic footage of Jim Greco. This is Jim's several attempts, and then the make, of his swtich frontside flip at Lincoln that landed him the September 2000 cover.
It's hard to find a Thrasher video that Dan Drehobl didn't at least have a few clips in, but out of them all, I'm gonna have to go with his part in Hall Of Meat as my favorite. This 1999 part introduced the late Wesley Willis to me, and with tricks like wrap-arounds and dumptrucks to fakie in the Vagabond? You pick a better nomination for a Classic. —Schmitty
In This Issue Louie Barletta scrapes some vert and Ben Raemers goes past the plane welcoming you to the December issue. The Oververt madness only escalates with a 26-page Enjoi video feature inside, including a Barletta interview, fun facts, new team-rider introductions and even a drinking game. Chug-a-lug. And that's just the tip of the blade: Bastien Salabanzi interviews Manny Santiago; LRG plunges into Cyprus; Hellride travels across the pond; and the Huf team explores Asia. And if the heavy hits leave you looking for some levity, Garrett Hill discusses his infamous two-tone pants and Beagle tells some tales of the Skate Tank. Done deal, dudes. Add this one to your collection.
