RHINO INTERVIEW BY JIM MURPHY: Photo by Dan Sparagna. As Murf will tell you, “Rhino grew up in the Northeast where hardcore skateboarding survived through cold winters with a dedicated hardcore skate community driven by the passion to ride whenever, wherever, rain, sleet or snow. That hardcore drive brought him westward where backyard pool sessions in SoCal introduced him to the Cali underground hardcore skate scene. His passion to document his crew through photography became the medium where Rhino’s skills got him into the world of skate mags. It was his good-hearted personality and hardcore roots that also eventually landed him the job as the Independent trucks team manager, and I can’t think of a better person for the job! No ego and all about the love of skateboarding and his skate family.”
JULIEN STRANGER INTERVIEW BY JESSE MARTINEZ: Photo by Tobin Yelland. Jesse Martinez finally landed the long-awaited Julien Stranger interview and it’s well worth the wait. Jesse Martinez and Julien Stranger are two of skateboarding’s most notorious characters. Both have spent the majority of their lives, since their early days in Venice, dedicated and committed to skateboarding. Here are two of our favorite heroes and antiheroes: Mess and Stranger…
J. GRANT BRITTAIN INTERVIEW BY JIM MURPHY: Photos by Anthony Acosta and Grant Brittain. Grant was there when the skatepark explosion of the ‘70s took off and, from his homebase of Del Mar skatepark, he began his documentation of the evolution of vertical concrete pool riding. His love for skateboarding was honed by all the people he met that came through Del Mar and skaters he met up and down the California coast. His eventual kinship with MoFo is a great read into how we are all united around skateboarding regardless of where you’re from or what brand you are aligned with. Grant has been through the highs and lows of skateboarding for the last 40 years, and his perspective on the evolution and Devolution of skateboarding is a wisdom built on hard work and dedication to that rider on the other side of the lens – no matter what terrain is being ridden. He is older, wiser, but don’t let him fool ya, he is still that humble kid who just wants to take photos and never takes for granted that he can actually do this for a living.
LANCE MOUNTAIN X STEVE OLSON (Part 2): Photos by Brendan Klein and Anthony Acosta. Lance Mountain and Steve Olson go for round two of their conversational dual interview, which produces some interesting conclusions as well as comedy. As Lance states, “Steve has a way with words and making you feel good about yourself. Charming, maybe, but I’m not a girl. There are many words to describe people who have done and loved what they do for so long, but to have the ability to pretend that none of it matters is the hardest, and it comes so easy for Steve, as does his skateboarding. He has shown us how to turn on a skateboard better than anyone. He has won multiple contests and awards. He has turned down more sponsorship opportunities than most have been offered. He brought in a new wave of style, thought and look to skateboarding. Some called it punk. We called it Olson.” Olson has some words for Lance too: “When one plays King of the Mountain, you try to get to the top, right? But when you play the same game with Lance Mountain, it’s hard to win… Competitive, that’s an understatement… Passionate, his picture is in the dictionary… Talented, well, that’s easy… Yes. Committed, slightly, and very… ’til death does he part ways with his skateboard”… Goofy, Disney owes, know what I’m saying? Loyal, ah yeah…, I mean… Should he be the first man knighted in skateboarding? Just think of the way it would sound… Sir Lance Mountain… off with his head!”
GEORGE ORTON INTERVIEW BY STEVE OLSON: Photo by Jim Goodrich. Olson gets Orton to admit to inventing the frontside air, among other escapades, and describes Orton in one perfect paragraph: “When you go, and go hard… and that’s the only way you know… you’ve entered the world of George Orton. When all else fails, don’t bail, hold on tight… it’s gonna be all right, when you wake. Living proof is on the pages of this interview with the man who brought flying on skateboards to a reality, and changed the path of how we ride. Thank you, George. You’ve done good, boy… ”
JEFF KENDALL INTERVIEW BY JIM MURPHY: Photo by Jim Goodrich. Murf talked to Jeff Kendall about his perspective as a vert skater in the ’80s to his reign today as VP of NHS and how he handles being a heavy hitter in the skate industry yet maintains his passion for skateboarding. As Murf says, “I remember the first time I saw Jeff skate and how solid and smooth his style was, stalling inverts and hauling ass all over the vert ramp with no sketchiness in sight. He had such a rad and unique style that it would burn in your brain that you had just witnessed Jeff Kendall throw down. Hailing from the Midwest, Jeff grew up riding backyard ramps and street skating whatever was around. The way he sees it, skaters skate everything with no limits.”

GBH INTERVIEW BY JEFF HO: Photos by Dan Levy and Zoli. Jeff Ho sits down with U.K.’s GBH, a crew of anarchists that have been at it for over 40 years with no end in sight… The early days of punk rock and skateboarding share many parallels. It all began with a small contingent of hardcore creatives that refused to accept the status quo and wouldn’t take no for an answer. GBH came from a working class background in the heart of England, while Jeff Ho and the Z-Boys came from a blue-collar neighborhood in southern California. Both went on to leave a permanent mark on their subcultures and continue to do so today. Jeff Ho sat down with Colin Abrahall, Ross Lomas, Scott Preece and “Jock” Blyth to compare notes.

MICKEY MUNOZ INTERVIEW BY STEVE OLSON: Photo by Art Brewer. Olson talked with surf icon, Mickey Munoz, about how a bunch of “dumb surfers” were not only responsible for innovative surfing and surfboard design, but also adapted their hard-earned watermen’s knowledge of the ocean to build the fastest boats on the planet, as proven in the miraculous comeback to victory for the most recent America’s Cup.
