    Louie Lopez front feeble pop overs into a GD mountain for the October front—much more L-Lopez inside as we talk to all the good homies about why Everybody Loves Louie. He really is one of the best. Baker 3 just turned 15 and we dive into all of the hi jinx and hammers that made it a modern-day classic. Travel-wise, Krooked meandered to Mexico City and we got Gonz to tell the tale and add some art to go along with it. Legendary. Willis Kimbel dishes on dream spots and deep thoughts and Chris Pfanner, Cody Chapman and Jonno Gaitan all get the Heads interview treatment. New REAL hot shot Christian Henry lands on the Lunatic Fringe and we speak with First Nation legend Joe Buffalo about his trials and tribulations overcoming his addictions. Need more? Damn, y’all are greedy. Okay, how about an 18-page photo feature and Sieben teaching you to steal a parking block? Fall is almost here but this one is still scorching.
