Independent Truck Company has spotlighted the life and times of the late Jake Phelps in an 18-minute movie titled Scabs for Slabs. The film captures the Independent skate crew tearing up Australia’s streets and following their life down under. There’s also a number of moments with Phelps himself as he discusses the skate scene.

Phelps says, “It’s pretty much a lifestyle choice, forever” when reflecting, and the film excellently captures this as riders Justin Figueroa, Evan Smith, Grant Taylor, Milton Martinez, Pedro Delfino, Wes Kremer, Collin Provost and Dustin Dollin indulge in their talents.

Combining the fast-paced nature of the Independent skate team with more intimate moments remembering the skating legend and Thrasher Editor-in-Chief, you can now watch the video for yourself above.
