    In The Mag

    Fans of GT, your issue is here! ATL’s finest lobs a lofty kickflip to claim the cover of our July mag, shot by the one and only Atiba Jefferson—legendary shit on both fronts! As if that wasn’t enough, Grant gets his own back, gracing the Contents page with a massive transfer at Garvanza. And further in we pack the pages with a full-scale LA takeover from Grant, Ishod, Ribeiro, Boserup and Nike’s Constant squad. Flip the pages and you’ll find all the answers you need to building your first shitty DIY. If you want some insanity, Shane Farber wreaks havoc in the Lunatic Fringe feature, bustin’ up the LA High banks and staring down death drops. Doesn’t stop there, Ryan Decenzo recounts the tale of his knee-risking bank bomb at the LA River. Then we got Sean Malto listing off 5 Greats on everything from Carroll quotes to condiments. Beagle’s People I’ve Known dishes on Reynolds, Herm, HK, J-Wray, Phelper and more. Searching for something Supreme? Ben Kadow's That’s My Shit will crack you up and give you the fix you need. OC homies Figgy and Collin Provost go head to head in a lightning round about early mentors, first sponsors and their biggest ollies. Next up in one of our most bittersweet photo features, we pay tribute to the singular Joe Hammeke with flicks, family photos and stories upon stories from his life well-lived. RIP, Hambone, you were one of the best we’ve had. In tales of up-and-coming rippers, Joey O’Brien and Kaue Cossa heat things up in their Heads interviews. Beyond the beach, Ace Pelka, Leo Romero, Jeremy Leabres, Salba and Jalba spend some time in the California Badlands. As always, your much-needed recovery from the carnage comes by way of the Zounds interviews. This month we got Billy Strings, Bongzilla and Rough Francis to soothe your weary eyes. Every mag is worth it’s weight in gold, but this is a must-have. Buy it now or forever live as a someone who missed the fuck out.
