Prototypical of what an old-school skate zine is, was, and should be both visually and content-wise. A nice mix of Interviews with Wolfie Retard and Tommy of The Stupids, vert photos of Gary Sanderson, Jim Thiebaud, John Grigley, Sergie Ventura and Eric Nash, a short interview with Mark Gonzales, a bloody long thesis on street skateboarding contests and contests in general, and some great music reviews. Good layout and nicely copied.
Notes: Photocopied on 8 1/2" by 11" paper, but stapled at the far left side, this zine is intended to be read panorama-style. This is the only zine I ever received from the UK.
