RIP IN PEACE: Jaya Bonderov

Skating, Hawaii, and California have lost a favorite son with the passing of our friend, Jaya Bonderov. He went from Photo-G to the front of the mag, and then continued to give back to 'boarding from behind the lens. "Jaya means victory of the spirit." Never forget.

    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.

    This week we had to say goodbye to one of the most exciting young skaters in recent memory. Take a second to appreciate the life of the LA kid who had everybody talking. RIP, Vincent.

    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.

    RIP IN PEACE: Jon Comer
    Jon was a pioneering champion for disabled skaters and practically made his invisible with an attitude and attack on the board true to his Texas roots. He knew there were others in way worse situations. Glad to have had some great sessions with you. Our deepest condolences to the Comer family. –Sam Hitz
