    Almost 20 years after Darrell Stanton’s cover, Carlos Ribeiro pays homage and hits Clipper with a switch backside noseblunt, landing square on the front of the February 2021 issue. Crack the back and find another history maker—Alex Midler’s Illegal Civ ender, a backside 270 ollie into the Sunset Carwash. WTF? More IC inside as we chat with Davonte Jolly about his new full-length vid GODSPEED. If the new year’s got you feeling nostalgic, look no further—we dip back into the ‘90s for a photo feature including The Phelper, Carroll, Stranger, Speyer, Hensley, Jovontae, Muska and more legends. Interview-wise, Dominick Walker gets grilled about living in Nyjah’s park, his push to turn pro and teaching the stars (or at least their kids) how to skate. Nick Michel, Henry Gartland and John Worthington all get the Heads treatment and Nora Vasconcellos chats with Ryan Townley about art, being a dog dad and filming for his new Layers part. Need a laugh? Check the Darren Navarrette People I’ve Known feature—the Vertical Vampire’s history goes deep. Finally, for all you music fanatics we’ve got interviews with Mogwai, Thurston Moore, Baptists and more. Start your year off right and plant your face into this issue.
