Josh Clark had been planning this Fakie Flip into the New York City Courthouse bank before he'd even arrived. When the last day of the trip came, he had to deal with parked cop cars, large crowds and a long wait, but in the end was able to roll away from it within a handful of tries. This is also the first time in SBC Skateboard history that a still and it's corresponding sequence have graced the cover.

The first thing American writer Rob Brink did when we assigned him this feature interview is Google up TJ Roger’s name. He found shit talking, slams and old footage of TJ with some unfortunate fashion choices. Not promising. Fortunately, with just a little digging it’s easy to see that TJ isn’t your average kid. Combine that with his on board skills and TJ becomes more than just a stereotype.

If you scan the barcode in this article you can see this exclusive video from the tour.
