Remembering Van Wastell

Van was magical on a skateboard. He had a style and uniqueness that was all his own. Its been ten years since he passed away, but when I watch this part I feel closer to him. I’ll always cherish the times I had with him, but for those who didn’t get to see him skate in person, his video parts, like this one, are just like him: they’re one of a kind. —Eddie Villa (Van Wastell’s Brother)
