Boil the Ocean pontificates on skateboarding’s most iconic dump truck — at least for those who don’t know the Dallas Todd dump truck story from ~summer ’18 ;)
Heck Ride has an interview with Aaron Meza that touches everything from the story behind Super Champion Funzone to the Epicly Later’d episodes that never ended up coming into fruition. Fun read.
