The structure team talked about to mountain Francisco to meet up in ~ Thrasher’s headquarters and also skate Thrasher’s private skatepark, double Rock for obstacles with none various other than one of the toughest men in skating, Jake Phelps.  The first challenge: 5 different tricks under the hubba, i m sorry the guys knocked out with minimal difficulty. Next, Aidan Campbell had to do a doubles cheat on the 4 minutes 1 pipe through Phelps and the critical trick was just amazing and beautiful: one teammate had actually to get means up on the wall surface and stall up over there while another grinded top top the corner (Glick and Wilson). Skating undeniably keeps girlfriend young and Phelps is a testament to that, which to be summed up by Foundation’s team manager, Mike Sinclair, ”Skating through Jake is awesome.

First, Cole Wilson make the efforts unsuccessfuly come skate the rail Cardiel made famed (but Jack Farnell actually acquired the trick back in the day). It was gnarly and also terrifying come watch. Eventually they were able to acquire Keith Hufnagel’s ollie cover at the hospital rail (Thrasher October 1997) when Glick obtained waaaay up on that rail. Glick again got the Karma Tsocheff June 2016 trick off the on-ramp on the 101 during rush hour no less- breathtaking and also petrifying. Aidan Campbell honored Mike Carroll’s march 1995 ska of the Year cover v a trick at the bay Blocks.

An initial they all put on snuggies due to the fact that P-Stone when wore a snuggie for an entire road trip, and skated lower Bob’s, Maigetter’s house skatepark, come celebrate his life. Lock barbeque’d P-Stone format at the grill integrated with a mosaic of P-Stone ~ above site, drink beer native bell pepper cups, joined by Ryan McWhirter (Antihero Skateboards), Jim Thiebaud and also Tommy Guerrero (owners, genuine Skateboards), and also the team had to floor tricks P-Stone would’ve done.

Kyle pedestrian cooked a feast on the grill, chopping it up on his cutting plank -the earlier of his skate dec.. There was a toast to P-Stone and also then there was drumming-out showed up Zion Wright’s dad Mustafa, his mother, Charron, and brother La Roi to existing him with his an initial pro deck! more tears flowed with sentimentality for P-Stone and happiness around Wright going pro. There was a tearful, memorable minute of honor and also respect between father and also son and Wright’s father expressing the love within the skate community.

He worked very hard because that this moment and the minute belongs to him.
