For those of us that remember the early foundations of skateboarding switchstance, Pittsburgh’s Matt Reason was one of the early progressive adopters of rolling opposite footed and he did it with style and power. Like Salman Agah, he was one of the pioneers and pushed what could be done on a skateboard riding switch. Philadelphia’s Love Park was his frequented terrain, but he took his skateboarding overseas, to the west coast and beyond…to a place where new levels of skill could be envisioned.
News has circulated via texts, phone calls and social media channels yesterday that Matt has recently passed on from this world from complications of pneumonia. It’s saddening, yet comforting to know that his goodness both on and off the board will be forever celebrated and remembered.
Ricta Wheels is proud to announce the addition of David Loy to it’s already illustrious roster. What better way to celebrate than with 3 minutes of Loy footage?! Keep an eye out for a David’s Pro Speedrings Wheels coming soon!
