On his first issues of TWS:
I still have the first and second TransWorlds. The first was [Steve] Caballero and the second had Tony Hawk on the cover. I bought them when they came out. The first day I went to Del Mar [skatepark] I saw Grant [Brittain] take photos of Tony Hawk, that’s when it all started for me.
