Shred For Shockus 2022

Words and video by Nick Shields, Photos by Mike Goodman

It’s been eight long years since we lost our dear friend Marc “Shockus” Delellis and every year since we’ve gathered at his favorite skatepark to celebrate his life by bringing together family, friends, good vibes, and epic skateboarding in his honor. This year was no exception to the stoke! Best trick contests were had and new obstacles were broken in. This day always brings out some of the gnarliest tricks that we’ve seen go down at the skatepark in Ocean Beach. This year skaters like Malachi Riley, Trisha Mendez, Mikey Morris, Kai Gormsen and DJ Martin came through with some amazing tricks that got the whole park hyped and cheering! Every year we leave Shred For Shockus with a stronger sense of community and empathy for our skateboarding family, it’s always a sweet reminder of what this culture can do when we all come together. Thank you Shockus, we miss you, and see you next year friends!
