Heath Kirchart

Heath Kirchart, Lipslide, El Toro High School, Lake Forest, CA 1998

Art Director: Ted Newsome


“Probably the cover I’m most known for because at the time this was THE gnarliest thing done on a handrail hands down. 20 stair lip slide in 1998? You’ve got to be kidding me. Two filmers, two photographers and Heath on a weekend morning before anyone else would want to ride a skateboard, especially on such a big rail. One roll of film (this is part of a sequence), I think he did this second try and all I could do was hope I didn’t fuck it up. All’s well that ends well.” Prints Available.
