As soon as I can get details on the funeral arrangements I'll be accepting donations via paypal so we can send something as a show of love from SP.

Derek was so chill and funny. He was definitely a ripper. One of the most talented skateboarders I've seen on SP.

I was never around when all of the OG stories were posted. But, I have spent loads of time reading through his old stories and posts. My only (brief non-aim) encounter with him, was when he posted his number. I called him, and listened to him so robot impressions. I laughed, and then hung up. This is a complete shock to me, especially dying from skating. He will be missed by all, and my best wishes go to his family. The donation idea is great, and I will no-doubt donate.

Peace Derek.

I remember being amped everytime he'd post a page length story. Always epic.

Such a good style, R.I.P
