A backside flip down El Toro's famous 20 stair, was being rumoured by Ryan Sheckler. He claimed in a video, that he had done the trick. After years of waiting for the premiere of True. Fans were let down with just attempts of the trick in the credits. This hurt Ryan Sheckler's credibility. The BS flip down El Toro was the most anticipated trick in the whole video, yet it did not happen.
