    The covers—front and back—should clue you in, but the September 2020 issue is chock full of LEGENDS. Up front, Darrell Stanton breaks down his June ’02 Classic Cover—the backside noseblunt down Clipper which is jaw dropping to this day, Gary Rogers pontificates on people he’s known, Clyde Singleton dishes on the chef life and his newfound sobriety, Alphonzo Rawls talks H-Street, art and skate footwear, Sal Barbier reminisces on his first big trip to CA from Louisiana, ‘80s pro Stephanie Person explains why nothing will ever be as hard as being a female skater, Karl Watson discusses Maxallure, his rider-owned biz supporting the next generation and we catch up with Forrest Edwards—and we’re not even halfway through the mag yet. Atiba Jefferson weighs in on the heroes and heavies who made him who he is today and we’ve got feature interviews with Ray Barbee, Kareem Campbell, Stevie Williams, Samarria Brevard, Steve Steadham, Robert Neal, Zion Wright, Marty Grimes, Kader Sylla, Ishod Wair and Nyjah Huston. Atiba sums up this mag with these poignant words: “This issue is a celebration of one of many cultures that have made an amazing impact on skateboarding… This is a story I have always been proud to be a part of, a story that has always been told by Thrasher and that we will continue to tell.”
