Celebrate the life of the legendary Trent Riley with Treasury.
Trent had the curtain closing part in Treasury, a Brisbane video that premiered on March 19 at Parliament Skate Shop. The part speaks for itself – a testament to Trent’s natural talent, work ethic and humble nature. Trent’s wild Natas spin at an iconic Brissy spot also earned him the cover of our 2021 Autumn Edition.
In circumstances that no one could have predicted, Trent Riley went missing less than a month later 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.
