It is always such a shock to hear of the death of a fellow comrade. When I got the news about Josh Evin a few days ago it put me in a state of disbelief. It is never easy to hear that someone so youthful, positive, and energetic has passed away. Skateboarding has definitely suffered a tragic loss.
The First tour that I went on as the team manager for Emerica was the Canada So'Wester tour in 2005. Josh was riding for Emerica Canada at the time and was on the trip. He definitely kept things lively and got everyone amped up each day. Josh kept in touch here and there after the tour and one day he called me to help out Jamie Tancowny who was coming down to California for the first time and he needed a place to stay. This was when Jamie was still on the Emerica Canada team. Josh was an amazing person and I am glad that I had a the chance to hang out with him. See you on the on the other side brother.
