chrome ball incident x transworld skateboarding #8

Number 8 on the list needs no introduction... especially on this site. June '86. 

“Angles are a precious thing.”

Trying to capture the complexities of someone like Neil Blender within the confines of a few magazine pages borders on the impossible. But TransWorld’s attempt, conducted by Stacy Peralta with a jawdropping layout designed by Blender himself, remains our greatest peek inside a mind of staggering creativity. The piece’s loose format thankfully allows Neil to play around and be himself, inspiring a generation of kids in its wake to do the same.

Don't ever reply.
