It's always a treat finding out what the guys at Closer have been cooking up for us and Closer Skateboard Magazine Issue 6 does not disappoint with just under 100 pages of articles, features, photos and more from some of the finest creatives in skateboarding. For the cover of Closer Issue 6, we've got none other than the actual GOAT, Jake Johnson as he risks an extended sentence in the Serbian gulags by hopping the fence at the Communist headquarters in Paris to hit a shapely kickflip for the lens of Closer's founder, Jaime Owens. As if one cover wasn't enough, Closer Skate Mag Issue 6 also features a bangin' back cover with Jason Adams decking a steep front rock at Sadlands to give you even more bang for your buck.

For their latest issue, Closer Skate Mag have moved away slightly from their usual historical lens and linked up with some bonafide modern greats for a look at some more contemporary topics. Inside Closer Skateboarding Magazine Issue 6 you can find a new Chromeball interview with elusive cover boy, Jake Johnson; a chat with Leo Romero about the parallels between being a skater and a musician; an interview with VX maestro, Josh Stewart, about his recent full-length, 'Static VI', and beyond; an interview with Jason Adams about his new video project; Clyde Singleton's list of his most slept-on pros; and so much more!
