Brisbane, Australia local Trent Riley went missing last month, just weeks after being featured on the magazine’s cover. This morning, Slam magazine premiered his part from Treasury, a recent video filmed and edited by Harry Pascoe. The mag gives you an update on the heartbreaking story behind Riley’s disappearance:
“In circumstances that no one could have predicted, Trent Riley went missing less than a month [after appearing on the Slam cover] while fishing alone off the Port of Brisbane in his little boat, ‘Lydia’. His family and friends, along with the Queensland Water Police and countless other volunteers, conducted a huge search effort, but two weeks later, Trent was still missing and the search was called off. Since then, tributes flooded social media.
“The disappearance of Trent Riley has left a massive hole in the Australian skateboarding community, but through his part from Treasury, and a tribute in our next issue, we continue to celebrate the life of a legend.”
