Skateboarding lost a legend this last week. No one in skateboarding doesn’t feel the heaviness in the air. Instagram is overflowing with love for him. Even when it is a painful time I hope it starts a conversation in skateboarding about alcohol abuse. So many great human beings have lost their lives, and many others have lost their careers living in this party atmosphere that skateboarding promotes. Skateboarding attracts some wonderful people, but often those people are allowed to slip into substance abuse just because they are talented. If you see your friends having a problem, say something. If you see a friend getting behind the wheel of a car drunk, say something. R.I.P P-Stone, you made skateboarding a better place and will continue to do so.
