The second half of the trip Durban to Cape Town got heated. More road miles, skate camps, pools, and handrails. Cory gets a trick in Birkenstocks? And it ts a wrap.

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
12/18/2017Friday’s SOTY celebration in San Francisco was one for the ages, as Foy was crowned and Nickatina elevated the party to another level. Big ups to everyone that made it out.
12/04/2017A star-studded lineup loads up into the Wanderlodge and barges across the United States. As you would imagine, the result is a heavy-duty vid!
