RIP

That TWS cover is a classic - Got it at home somewhere.

Feel bad for the Wray family .

I'm having that same feeling now thinking about Jeremy and my heart goes out to him.

Yeah me too man, these brothers were meant to grow old together as best friends. Not like this. Fuck.

I'll never forget Jonas and Jeremy suddenly appearing with Pat Chanita at a session at the ol' Trabuco Hills High School ledges circa 1996. We were of course blown away. My friends and I were trying to ollie a trash can laid on its side. They set up another trashcan upside down nearby and Jeremy Wray just heel flips the whole thing on his first try. But then his brother comes up next and fucking nollie frontside heelflips right over the top as well. I had never seen a trick that technical done with that much pop and height before. It really changed the way I perceived what was possible.  Such a skillful ripper.

Always loved his skating. I can't even imagine for his brother. These past few years have been brutal for skating.

Rest Easy.

I remember as as a kid having a subscription to Transworld.  Ok as a young kid aesthically I was not usually looking at pictures and being blown away. I know who Jonas Wray is obviously but after seeing that cover gad damn I thought it was him not positive but sends chills to me as that imo is 1 of the BEST photos of skateboarding ever taken not only a cover. Even if he was still alive its been years since I saw that picture and its like being fried into my brain if that makes any sense sorry im just a late 30s skateboarders trying to cope with middle age ha RIP
