You may have heard the rumor, now it’s official. Via Ed:

Toy Machine Bloodsucking Skateboard Company and Pro Skateboarder Nick Trapasso have parted ways in an amicable fashion. That means it was mellow. No giant fight took place or anything. So sorry for the relatively boring press release. We thanked each other over the phone. He thanked us for hooking him up and turning him pro, and I thanked him for his continued ripping, getting covers, and winning contests. It will be sad to see such a great talent go. Toy Machine wishes him luck in his future endeavors. We are looking forward to our own future with newly anointed pro Collin Provost joining the gang.

One step closer to death,
