#tbt Dinner with the squad in Montpellier, France on Bastille Day in 1998. Can you name them all before you check the tags? Awesome fireworks that night, France won the #worldcup the day before as well so people were going apeshit. This was also the year that Bastien Salabanzi showed up and blew everyone's mind as a 12-year old with tons of consistent flip tricks in his run at the Attitude '98 contest. Good times. #thankyouskateboarding
✌🏼️Lancaster. I spent a couple of the heaviest years of my life here. After I shattered my heel, six months of morphine and dilaudid for the pain did a real number on me. For an eternal optimist with no perspective on the situation, dealing with depression for the first time in my life was challenging to say the least. There is no way I would have made it through without the gracious love and support of the family that treated me as one of their own. I'm forever grateful, it was awesome catching up with everyone and I hope to see you in California soon! ❤️
My friend #ryandewitt had the rare ability to make everyone around him feel better about themselves, every single time you saw him. His laugh and smile were contagious and he managed the stresses of life with a grace I've never seen in another human. He was truly special and I'm a better person for having known him. Thank you @kingman for organizing such a beautiful celebration of DeWitt's life today, you did him proud. #lifeisforliving 📷 @rickithedude holding his @ryangdewitt tribute board.
Got together today with a small portion of the Network 17 / Costa Mesa / Element crew at the San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary to share some stories, time together and a toast to our friend #RyanDeWitt. Some somber moments, but more smiles and laughter as everyone recounted their favorite remembrances of DeWitt. I'm still completely in denial that he's gone, it doesn't even make any sense that we'll never see him again. Life is short, make the most of the days you have, every day. #lifeisforliving
Floored watching the Insta posts go by today for DeWitt. Tears rolling down my cheeks as I try and type something that does justice to what he meant to me and everyone else who had the honor of knowing him. A gentle, generous friend whose infectious smile and laughter made the world a better place. Love you brother, #rip in peace. #ryandewitt on the set of Bam's or Bust, West Chester, Pennsylvania.
