Jake Phelps

Skateboarding lost a real one.

I always looked at Jake Phelps as an example of a guy who loves skating and did his own thing regardless of what anyone thought of him (for good or bad). He was a dude I never met yet it felt like I knew him pretty well because whenever he had something to say he said it straight from the gut. A strangely blunt poetic philosopher who gave a lot to this weird thing we do.
