Mark Suciu takes his patented quick snaps to a backside 50-50, grinding onto the August cover and just like that—he’s back! Full Suciu interview inside. His higher education has given him a new perspective on skateboarding and he’s ready for a new chapter. Magnus opus? Nah, he’s here for the long haul. The tenth annual Wheels of Fortune in Seattle proved to be the biggest and best one yet, and the King of the Road-inspired Witch Hunt ruled once again. We back the Sheckler tat. On the road again, the Bronson crew gets down and dirty in the South. Chicken wasn’t the only thing these guys were chompin’ on—Big Boy Foy, Delfino, Dixon, Ducky, Alexis Ramirez and Winkowski devoured every rail in sight. The Girl fam went on a mission to Melbourne. Don’t bother them, they’re on Smoko. Other travel tales have the FA/Hockey squad trekking it to the EU for some beach daiquiris and street sessions.
