RIP IN PEACE: Dylan Rieder

Born to ride a skateboard? It’s a seemingly silly concept when you think about it, but Dylan Rieder made us believe it. That man was absolutely, positively, a gift. Power, style, grace - he had it all. That said, he was much more than a skateboarder, and that’s what makes this infinitely tragic. Think about what he had already accomplished and imagine how much more he could have done. We are at a loss for words right now, but what we do know is that Dylan made everything around him better. Our thoughts are with his family and friends in this difficult time. Rest in Peace, Dylan Rieder. We will all miss you, each day more than the next.

    RIP IN PEACE: Otis “O” Barthoulameu
    Otis B lived big ––a masterlensman for all the mags, rocking with his bands Olivelawn, Fluf and Harshmellow, producing records for Blink-182, designing boards for Foundation and making friends and cracking jokes everywhere he went. O did it all, with fun and fury. There's an O-sized hole in skateboarding today. He will be sorely missed.
