    Hear ye! Hear ye! We have a new King of Crust upon the horizon, Sir Mason Silva! Mason pops an unfathomable ollie (over a rail, past the flat) into a blistering bank. That’s how you score the front! More Silva inside as he weighs in on the heroes and heavyweights who have shaped his skating. How did Dashawn Jordan turn into an Olympic athlete seemingly overnight? Find out! Getting caught masturbating? Wack. Over-instagramming? Wack. New Palace pro Jamal Smith schools us on how he finesses the skate industry. Seems to be working. On the travel tip, GT, Collin Provost, Jackson Pilz, Chris Pfanner and the rest of the Volcom crew explore the wonderful world of Deutschland. From the biergartens to the streets, these guys are a force to be reckoned with. Stateside we have the FA guys trekking from Dallas to Oklahoma City, gobbling up dog shit sandwiches and epic spots every step of the way and the Monster crew gets sick in the Colorado Rockies. Need more? Martino Cattaneo gets the Lunatic Fringe treatment, we present you with a skater’s guide to head injuries, Emmanuel Guzman takes some high-speed plunges and Steel Pulse, Wolf Parade and Witch all get grilled. This issue is so chockfull of stoke you’re gonna need two faces for it to melt.
