From The pages of the Sept 2011 Issue Of TransWorld SNOWboarding Magazine.


You’d think that by now, skaters, BMX dudes, shredders, and other non-religious types have all scaled this church roof in pursuit of sinful pleasures. In fact, the tranny looks so good you’d think they’d have 24-hour security patrols. But nope, it’s a free-for-all. Austin Smith made a pilgrimage all the way from his native Oregon for this sacred roof ride while working on his part for the new Videograss flick Retrospect. Risking life and limb for the reinforcement of his segment, Smith climbed carefully up to the top, said a little prayer, and then took a leap of faith.
