  • Jake Phelps Lifetime Retrospective

    Jake Phelps Lifetime Retrospective
    Jake led one of the most extraordinary lives of all time. There’s no way to fully document his legend but we did our best. Based on the June 2019 memorial mag (and expanded here), this massive feature has 50 years’ worth of Jake photos as well as testimonials from his closest friends. It’s almost impossible to absorb all of this content in one sitting and it’s meant to be sampled in various stages. His story will live forever and his spirit continues in everyone who loves to roll. We love you, Jake!

    Skateboarding’s top concrete crushers slug it out on the insane terrain of Red’s Lincoln City, Oregon – parks, pits, dirt and destruction. Grindline the Band, Arctic, Bad Shit and many more provide the soundtrack as the crew pushes the limits for those who can’t. Pure mayhem and good times! Where were you?!
