We talk to the Obey founder about his life, work and thoughts after all the fallout from his sensational Barack Obama ‘Hope’ poster.

As this issue marks the 30th incarnation of Huck, there’s a special 22-page retrospective of the many people who have graced our pages over the past five years.

But there’s also tons of fresh features including Thomas Campbell and his surf trip to Chile; Kevin Pearce on his recovery and tentative return to snowboarding; illustrator Evan Hecox on his new exhibition; and a look into the world of emceeing in Detroit.

Plus, we explore the growth of DIY skate spots, talk to pro snowboarder-turned-pastor Jim Rippey, go on a skate trip with Jay Adams and the Solitary Arts crew, and there’s a special report on the Dale Farm traveller camp evictions.
