You might not be able to judge a book by its cover, but you can definitely tell that this is a rowdy issue with Chris Pfanner's massive kickflip gracing the front page. Element and LE team up and blaze a trail through the US, Habitat and friends achieve wizard status as they casually rip through Morocco, and Dane Burman adds a few more stairs to the equation as he terrorizes every rail that dares get in his way. Sixteen rugged and raw pages of Skate Rock serve as a not-so-gentle reminder that no town is safe when that crew is on the loose. Top it off with some DIY words of wisdom from Pontus Alv and Pat Duffy discussing the highs and lows of his 20-year pro career and you've got an issue chock full of stoke.
It's always cool to see what photos from the mag stoke out the pros. Dennis and Ernie get hyped on the August 2013 issue.
