    Remembering Phil Shao
    20 years ago we lost Phil Shao. He was tragically killed in a car accident while back on the road after rehabbing his knee from ACL surgery. He embodied the archetype for modern day "all terrain" skating with 110% raw power. Style and brains eternal, we love you Phil Shao! —Bryce Kanights

    Phil Shao, 1973-1998. 18 years dead? Well when he was here, he was doin' it. Blind School pool in Berkeley had three covers. His Smith over the box was top shelf. They only take the good ones. Miss you daily. Always with style, Phil MF Shao. —Jake Phelps
