Phil Shao #1.

12/28/1973 - 8/22/1998

"Phil had the style, the determination, and more than his fair share of ability, shining around the world, and touching people everywhere he went with the thing he loved to do the most: skate as hard as he could. The guy ruled, there is no question about it. No question." - Mark Whiteley

It's been ten years since we lost one of skateboarding's finest.

I never appreciated how good he was when he was alive. I've watched several youtube clips the past few days. Dude could pretty much ride anything, and he was smooth.
