A Pro And Their Cover

Heath Kirchart—El Toro, February 1999

How did you find out you had the cover of TransWorld?
I’m good friends with (Dave) Swift and was also working on an interview, so I knew that when it was coming out and what the photo looked like.

How did it impact your career at the time?
I didn’t notice. I was very reclusive back then, so I was pretty unaware if it impacted my career at all.

Was the trick filmed?
Yup, there was also a sequence in my interview that Seu shot.

Were you consciously going for a cover on that day?
Yeah, I knew if I made it, it would be the cover.
