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.

    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

    It’s important to the Raemers family that people know Ben's cause of death. In his sister's words, “If the tragedy of losing my Benny can save others then that’s a positive."

    RIP IN PEACE: Mark "Monk" Hubbard
    My friend Roger Mark Hubbard died June 8, 2018. Talk about skateboard legends, this dude saw his destiny. Marty was a true skateboard pioneer. Talk about doing it yourself, this dude did it all. He’s gone but his legend will live forever. I miss him, and there ain’t nobody like him. Once again, rest in peace. Roger Mark Hubbard 1970-2018.–Jake Phelps
