We would like to take a moment to acknowledge the significance of the song used for this year’s VPS trailer.

The recording of 'Onward to Battle' by Bad Shit on February 8th for Vans Park Series was the first time Jake Phelps and Tony and Ashley Trujillo ever recorded ‘Onward To Battle’ professionally.

We are all saddened by Jake’s passing on March 14th. Skateboarding suffered an irreparable loss that day.

All of us at VPS are thankful to have rolled with Jake through the years and we’re honored to have him provide the soundtrack to our lives.

Rest easy, Jake.

Onward to battle.
