COVER BOY: Brian Shima

The Nimh team went to Europe and all Brian Shima got was this cover! Sam Butt shoots and writes the story of their travels, offering his two cents on the increasing importance of being skater-owned and the energy of Montre Livingston. Joey Chase wasn’t on that tour, but as chance would have it he nabbed himself the feature interview in the very same issue. We sent Drew Amato to shoot in Florida during the Pow-Wow but Joey broke his ankle, so shooting was postponed until a hectic three-day stretch in San Diego. Called in for the job of capturing the action was NorCal’s Nick Korompilas, and the results are every bit as raw as Joey’s reputation. See all this and more when ONE Issue #15 ships this month. — ONE

Shima is perfect in a sense, kid gets bent, reps harder than Scott Bentley and hes not even feelin the wrath of it

Some peeps might say the great Shimanater is ahead of his time like Mr Miyagi, but if u ask me I predicted his uprise over the blade syndicate way before his hayday

A simple wax on/wax off technique will not get you the plausible critique you find inaudible in some of his rhymes. rhymes? you say what does this have to do with the blade game? its all intertwined to the art forced into your minds when LEGENDS such as Shima land a front torque grind.
