RIP Victor Earhart; the skater grandpa

We have lost a valuable ambassador of skateboarding. Victor Earhart enjoyed riding downhill and even off-road, and worked many years building skateboards. He is known mostly for showing us that you can keep riding well into old age (and that infamous "I'd give a f*ck, but I already gave it to your grandmother last night" meme.) Victor passed away in a motorcycle accident on November 28, 2016. He is an inspiration to everyone who dreams of building a life around their passion and joy, and to everyone that hopes to skate for as long as possible. Thanks for all the stoke, Victor! Rest in peace.

(FYI, this video has a long intro with logos and whatnot so I skipped it. Rewind manually to see the skipped part if you're curious.)
