Now that you’ve caught up on the skaters who’ve shaped the magazine over the last twenty years, it’s time to give you a teaser of what’s in store for the next twenty. There’re so many new kids killing it at this moment in time. Dudes like P.J. Ladd, Mark Appleyard, Tony Trujillo, Ryan Sheckler, Brian Wenning, Paul Rodriguez, Mikey Taylor, Spanky, Brian Herman, Billy Marks, Jon Allie, Greg Lutzka, Corey Duffel, Bryan London, Florentin Marfaing and … shit, we could go on for days. And this is just the beginning of a whole new generation of skateboard maniacs. I think I’m getting scared!-D.S.
