“I gave my life to skateboarding, you know? I fucked up.” – Jake Phelps

 

Jake Phelps, skateboarding legend and editor of Thrasher has died. ... “Jake Phelps was 100% skateboarder, but that label sells him way too short, because beyond his enormous influence in our world, he was truly an individual beyond this world,” Vitello wrote. Phelps cause of death is yet to be confirmed.

Getting old? Well, the older you get, hopefully the better you get at being yourself. Injuries, life, setbacks and triumphs – they all happen around you. When I was 24 I thought 27 was the end. At 27 it became 33. At 33 I knew at 40 it was done. Then you hit 50 and, well, you’re in the back of a pickup in nowhere Mexico with some melon pickers that don’t speak a lick of English sharing a bottle of Mescal at 7am. Looking back takes guts; looking forward is insanity. Skateboarding was all I ever wanted and I gave unselfishly.

You just gotta keep skating if that’s what you wanna do, but if you don’t, don’t kid yourself, get out, go do something else, and if it gets too scary for ya, you were never meant to skate in the first place

#megagoodtimes #megagoodtimesordie #megagoodtimesportal #scenicviews #remotelands #stardust #graphics #highI’m heartbroken. Jake was like an older brother, father , and friend to me. He is the most die hard skateboarder ever. He helped raise me. I’ve seen his sweetest side, and his kindest heart. My mom just left, both of us in tears, reminiscing about our days spent with him. I’m someone that usually is not at a loss for words, but I truly am right now. #pinestreetmobimage#megagoodtimes #megagoodtimesordie #levelup #gears #shiftin #motocross #bikesGonz @blindskate reissue@surfriderausMmmmhmmmOHIO!

Brrrrrrrrr!!!! It’s cold out there folks... while I’m over here carving out the next big thing for the Overdrive my frozen mind meat can’t wait for summer time!!! And with the new weird planet going through hot flashes we can expect some nice guilt ridden warm days ahead.
To commemorate our new DUAL CARB KNUCKLEHEAD exchange program I knew the ONLY choice was to go DEEP into Oakland and locate Chris Lindig at the 666 lair.
I been knowin this fool for a minute and we been in some heavy heavy. We’re gonna run some shirts and fresh mesh hats that fit right and look good just in time for bikini season. You can’t bring your bike in the club but you can run the uniform and let everybody know you are part of the SOLUTION. The faster we burn all this gas the faster we get to summertime all year long! #VHODbeachhouse #peniscousins #jboy #chrislindig #RIPearnie #weightbenchAcrobatic surfing with @cocom4debarrelkilla and @sheldoggydoor

pete.tatu@gmail.com“Ruben Orkin but most of us just called him “Rube”. To get right down to it, he died 20 years ago today, at the age of 29 of lung cancer. Rube was the shit. He could get along with practically anybody, and if you were a skateboarder there were no questions asked, you were part of his family.” - @4Q69 ( Read the rest in our story )
