Tsuchinoko has a "P-Stone" song. The lyrics go something like, "He likes beer, P-Stone! He is fat but he can skate, P-Stone!" Every time they played it Preston took over the pit, Jersey-style. Photo: Joseffer

Cosmic Neurose from Tokyo. This band rips. The singer runs around kicking as high and as hard as he can and jumps in the crowd. All their song titles are things like "Bad," "Punk," and "Fuck." If you like punk, check them out. Photo: Joseffer

1/08/2018If you read this, understand: the person who you are today is because of the people you grew up with—simple fact. When someone passes on to the next, take a knee and remember that today is a gift and tomorrow is not a promise. Curtis Hsiang was as raw a skater as I have ever known. He gone now, but I can still feel him in my heart. Eighteen years ago today we lost an angel. —Jake Phelps 1/8/18
12/31/2017Some people can make you smile just by sittin’ next to them. Preston had that juice that made any flat tire fun. This dude was a TV show that was constant comedy. After the Bust or Bail in Atlanta, he got knocked out at the Bell telephone banks and we came up with a TV show that wrote itself, “Cookin’ With A Concussion.” His never-give-up, rev-it-up attitude will make me smile whenever I hear his name. His energy will never die. Go outside and enjoy it. Life is way too short. —Jake Phelps
12/27/2017Preston grew up in the sticks, filming and skating with his friends like they were Skater of the Year. From rails to gaps, the Big Dog did it all. Here's a blast from the past that shows knowing how to skate makes you a better filmer. Dude ripped. We miss you. —Jake Phelps
12/25/20172017 was a bad year for skaters dying. Between the Rock and the Big Dog, I get sour every day. Anyways, when you die you ride forever. 1997 X Games vert doubles and Tom Boyle needed a partner. Preston was always down. Vert is hard; these dudes were granite and they went for it. Last place? Who cares. Let's see you do it! —Jake Phelps
12/21/2017From getting knocked out by Coco on his first encounter with the Hell Ride Crew to MTV stardom, Bam Margera and Phelper discuss it all as well as what’s to come.
