Patlanta's "Dad Cam" videos

It was around the end of June 2016 and P-Stone was hyping up yet another adventure. The mission was to get Oski up to the Vans contest at Hastings in Vancouver, but for Stone that was just an excuse to rev up another road trip.  The Girl team had just finished a trip and we met them at the Vashon Island bowl to steal Cory and assemble our crew. It was Preston, Cory, GT, Oski, Jacapo, Joe Brook, Jalden, BHD and myself. I had been bringing the handycam around on Skate Rock or wherever just to keep it fun and capture shenanigans. Preston was a huge influence on me to film and edit shit because he made everything fun. This trip was no different. Grilling, swimming, sleepin in the dirt, ferry rides, hitch-hiking, free kegs, eating bugs, smashing rocks, throwin axes...shit Stone even introduced us to Sluggo.  I edited these clips last year but wasn’t fast enough to get them on the web. Stone finished his edits like he would a warm beer, hella fast, so my shit fell to the backburner.  I just hope that watching these makes everyone wanna skate, laugh, eat bugs, smash rocks, crack a bru and just rev it up with your homies.  Preston was truly a saint. The only "world local” I've ever heard of, leading the way to food, water (for swimming), shelter, warmth, comfort and beer no matter where we were. I am lucky to have known him. We love you, Big Dog. PMA. Ships tight and the coals are rev’d. Slow n low...

    P-Stone's Xmas Cookie: P-Stone Forever
    Some 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

    Preston 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

    P-Stone's Xmas Cookie: Doubles with Tom Boyle at X-Games
    2017 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
