GLEN E. FRIEDMAN
INTERVIEW
One of Skateboarder's first star lensman, Glen E. Friedman captured some of the most iconic images of the '70s and '80s. He went on to document the early days of punk rock and hip-hop and their stars such as Black Flag, Fugazi, Run-DMC, Public Enemy and the Beastie Boys to name a few. Recently, while on a trip to Los Angeles, Glen got inspired to snap a few skate flicks, which he hadn't done in years. Check out what he¹s be doing lately and learn some skate history.

INTO THE SOVIET RING
BELARUS AND THE UKRAINE

Finding untapped skate spots seems nearly impossible these days with the extensive traveling that skaters have done all over the world in the past decade, but they do still exist. You just gotta dig a little deeper to find them. Louie Barletta, Chris Haslam, Nestor Judkins, Casey Rigney and Kenny Reed headed deep into Eastern Europe and deep within the Soviet Ring, in Belarus and the Ukraine, they found entire cities made of pristine marble that have never been skated.

NEVER LEAVING VEGAS
ELEMENT IN SIN CITY

Besides gambling, Wayne Newton, and extra-marital sex, there aren¹t many other reasons to visit Las Vegas. Fortunately, Levi Brown, Chad Tim Tim, Nick Garcia, Julian Davidson and Mike V. thought otherwise and decided to try their luck at the plethora of new spots that have been discovered recently in the city of sin.
