Another epic recap of a day that’ll never be forgotten, we love and miss you Shockus. You’ve made such a strong impact on all of us.

Here’s a little video recap of the session that went down yesterday at OB skatepark. We love and miss you Shockus, forever in our hearts.
It’s not very often you find a pool in North Park, much less a Blue Heaven. This gem was discovered by my good bud HEMAN. He hit me and a few other guys up to give him a hand emptying it, but he was so excited he already emptied 200 bucket loads solo.
The first glance.
Then we showed up the next day.. ( HEMAN let us know, this was a full barge and really had no idea what could happen, possibilities were endless ) I saw this plaque, any pool skater knows – this is a sign from the skate gods – transitions below the murky green water were assured.
The boys were already at it.
After pumping out water for about an hour, We got to some real thick water that was pretty much the most deadly sludge I’ve ever seen. With a few more feet to empty.
You find some interesting things when emptying pools.
This was Chris LaRue’s first pool mission.
Truman was killing it the whole time, of course.
Stafford getting down on the pump duty, nice and crusty.
After mass amounts of swet, mud, beers, and hours of dedication. The boys started to shred!
We were lucky to have a few sessions in this epic pool, I’m sure you’ll see coverage soon!
All good things come to a end, now go find yours!
I can’t believe I’m writing this, It might be selfish to say I was wishing this all wasn’t true and it was false information shared on social media. But unfortunately we really did loose one of the great human’s to ever grace this planet, and I’m very lucky to have called him my friend.

Even more then that, he was a mentor in a sense, someone I could always ask for advice from and he would love to give it, without feeling obligated or annoyed. Everyone in San Diego that has been skating for a few years has encountered this exact feeling. I will be a stronger person now, with Shockus inside me and all of us he will live on forever. This isn’t going to be easy to cope with, but knowing Shockus, he would probably make some funny joke and we’d all laugh with tears.
Ride on forever big dawg, and I can’t wait for the day we shall mash together again. Thanks for making such a big impact on me and the entire skate community in San Diego, we all love and miss you.
I recently started working for VOX Footwear, we have tons of plans for the future and it feels rad to be apart of a shoe company that actually cares about skateboarding, and that’s all they care about – not the tennis courts or anything else.
