This issue sees Mark Baines taking the cover slot for 89 and should be on shelves to buy now.
Sandwiched in between the front and back pages is a plethora of radical moves from the world over.
First up we’ve got the Aussie powerhouse, Chima Ferguson, interview. Shot during the filming of his Since Day One video part for Real Skateboards, we pick his brains about the filming process, eternal summers and other such stuff.
Backing Chima up is tech-pop, smooth operator and Benelux-badman, Kevin Tshala, showing us how it’s done right in his Effect.
And filling them Q and A gaps, with tales of travelling and intoxication, are the mighty Perus and Sk8mafia crews.
There’s all the usual suspects in there too and of course it’s time for a new artist to step up to the plate, get quizzed and design a new tee shirt for us. This time around it’s the turn of Craig ‘Questions’ Scott, an interesting chap from Whitstable, Kent with a penchant for collecting things – mostly gross things. On top of Craig’s work there is now the additional draw of our co-branded Mabasi Swiss-made skate tool – these things are honestly really handy and small, and built tough too. Best believe..
