RIP JR Neves

Skateboarder JR Neves passed away on Friday. JR was busting jaw dropping gaps while most kids his age were playing nintendo and picking their nose. We used to skate with him when he was just a little tike at the skatepark in PA. Even then he would shred hard and make most pros he skated with feel like they needed to rethink their career. JR was an amazing skater and a really funny kid. My sympathies go out to his family and close friends. I’ll never forget the time he tried an 8 foot transition gap from a vert ramp and broke his arm, I was scared just watching him do it. He was back skating with a cast on that week. RIP homie.
