Tom Mattingly | Remembering Nick

Jake Hershey

 I would like to take a moment to remember my best friend Niccolo who was hit by a car on April 1st 2016 and died on the spot. I will not get into the negative, but rather the positive things that came from Nicks life. He wasn't the best skater in the world, but everyone who has skated with him will admit that he brings an amazing vibe which was contagious. It was hard to not have fun when you were riding with Nick. I remember he was the one who got me my first spot on a pro team, not only did he film all the videos I needed for it to happen, he even went above and beyond by talking to the company and telling them about how much I love riding and filming. Without him, all of this may have never happened. But now with his loss does not mean the end of it all, but rather a new start. If you are in the area, there will be a "Shred for Niccolo Day" on July 15th, 2016 at North Laurel Skatepark in Maryland. More details will be released closer to the date. In the meantime, enjoy the first of many videos to come." - Tom Mattingly
