The fund raising is locked and secured until we have more reliable information. I’ll proceed accordingly to the community position with true respect to the family.

For those of you who don’t know him as Derek, his username is @BigBoyToys here.

He was one of the heaviest guys here with really crazy strong and fast boards.

Thoughts are with his family!


RIP BigBro

our family is smaller now… and poorer for it


Thanks for this, I hope this goes some way to helping his family and friends.


RIP Derek, you were one of the most passionate and helpful guys here.


Woke up to this sad news, i am without words. My condolences to his family and loved ones.


Thanks for the initiative @okp. Remember, that even the smallest contributions matter, as the more we are, the more it is a gift from our community! :heart:


Derek, I don’t know where to start. You were one of the most helpful contributors and one of the friendliest people on this forum. Thank you for teaching us to push the limits in ways we never knew were possible, thanks for your endless contribution to this forum, thank you for everything. My condolences go out to his family and those who knew him personally. This forum will not be the same without you bro. RIP.


Miss you Derek, ride in peace brother.


Rest in peace brother, we will remember.
