Our prayers.

I want to thank all of you guys for the generous share a gift I have received on behalf of my brother. Also for the love and support that you guys have shown Derek this whole time before and after his passing. You guys are an amazing group of friends and individuals. Derek was truly able to connect with a lot of you guys on a different level and all of you guys have become family. So much so that he pulled me in to the E skate forums not wanting me to miss out on all the fun. I soon got to experience the full connection and passion that Derek shared with all of you for the love of E -skate board building, riding, etc. that we all share and the amazing people connected to the sport. Derek always knew the power of education, knowledge and communication. He thought it would be a good idea for me to be up-to-date on the ESkate forums tech talk and wanted me to catch up on all his posts and comments. I would soon find out that I was about 2000 posts read, 900 comments and 1 year late at least it felt like it with how deep the thread conversations were getting. I would eventually find out how seriously involved Derek would get in to the sport 2 years later when he built his 10th fully custom DIY board. And also broke and holds multiple records including but not limited to
First person to complete 100 miles on a single charge, Fastest 100 meter 4 Wheel Drive top speed, Fastest 50 meter acceleration, Fastest 4 wheel drive lap time and I'm sure I'm forgetting a couple more.
Derek loved to build things his whole life and was very good at it as well. The E-skate forums were the holy mecca of technical information and do it yourself custom builds. He fell in love and never stopped building. I want to personally thank everyone for the love and support you guys have shown me and my family during this hard time.

Thank you again,
Drew Maseuli

    Derek will be missed by a large community of like minded friends. I'm glad to have met and ridden with him and chatted about our future projects. I spoke to him about my family restricting me and he laughed about how he's having all this fun before settling down...miss our chats. My condolences on the passing of your great son Mr. & Mrs.Maseuli
