matt bell jr x house of vans recap

mjbhovrecapOn Saturday March 23rd, family, friends, and the Long Island skateboarding community gathered at House of Vans in Brooklyn to celebrate the life of Matthew Jerome Bell Jr. It was truely amazing to see how many people that Matt had an impact on. The day was filled with some amazing skateboarding of course, and lots of reminiscing and shared stories of our beloved friend. Special thanks to House of Vans for putting on the event, and everyone that came out to support! We had a great time and I’m sure everyone who was there can say the same. Special thanks to our friend Pat Quinlan who held down the camera all day.

saturday: house of vans x matt bell jr

MatthewBellJr_smAbout a month ago, on February 7th 2013, the 3rd phase family and Long Island skate scene lost one of its most beloved sons’, a wonderful friend, and an amazing skateboarder. Matt Bell Jr was taken from this world too young, at the age of 18, from a heart ailment. This was a rough time for all that were lucky enough to know Matt.

This Saturday, March 23rd, there is a benefit for Matt at House of Vans┬áin Greenpoint Brooklyn. Family, friends and the skateboarding community will come together and celebrate Matt’s life the way he would have wanted it- at the skatepark!

house_of_vans_bmx_01The 3rd phase family will be in attendance to show our respect and love for our fallen brother. We have 25 hand matted prints to give out- be sure to grab one as quick as possible!
