RIP IN PEACE: Vincent Nava

A life cut short is always a tragedy, heavier still when it's someone just beginning to bloom. For many of us, our introduction to Vincent Nava was his Pig Wheels part that dropped earlier this year. It had us asking, Who is this Hellraiser lookin’ dude unloading on all these rails?! Sometimes people make up for a lack of ability with a loud look, but Vincent had the chops to squash any naysayers. When I called him for an interview, I thought I might be about to talk with a young man full of fury and harsh slogans, but I was immediately struck by how kind, funny and collected he was. He loved his family, taught kids to skate and would do anything for his homies in the 10C41 crew. We should consider ourselves lucky that he shared his gift with us, unapologetically. Throw on his part next time you need an extra dose of confidence for some new clips or your kit. RIP, Vincent. Thank you for reminding us how cool it is to be an individual. —Ted Schmitz

    Last year was the worst, which means we’ve got an extra-stacked pack of T-Eddys for the skate world’s gaffes and god-awful moments. Plenty of praise in there, too! Don’t get pissed if you made the list.

    The word legend has entered our everyday lexicon to the point that we've lost sight of its huge power and rarity. Keith Hufnagel defined the word.

    Southwest legend and friend to all who crossed his path, Twig sadly had his time cut short. Take a trip back to the better days with his last full part along with some kind words of remembrance.

    Spiked hair, studded belt but somehow not a single mall grab, don't judge Pig's new gnar goth by his cover. This guy goes huge.
