RIP Benjamin Paulsrud
« on: July 03, 2022, 09:13:18 AM »
Ben was someone I met in 2008 pushing through the streets of San Francisco. We ended up becoming close friends and exploring skate spots all over the world. He will be greatly missed.

If you ever got to see him skate, you know how passionate he was. He poured his heart into every second he was on a board.

One of the kindest and most caring humans I had the the pleasure of knowing.

I came across this post from 2007 with some of his video parts:

This one fucking hurts man...Absolutely gutted.

Ben, is a magical human on and off the board. If you had the pleasure to know him you were better for ever second you spent with him. I hadn't seen him in a while but when he was living in SF and visited back home he would always say "If you're ever in Dolores park just look up in a tree and that's where I'll probably be". He especially loved the Ficus.

Rest In Peace my dear old friend. The cosmos got back some of it's magic energy.
