Andy Kessler RIP In Peace


We're saddened to hear that OG NYC legend, Andy Kessler, passed away yesterday. Our thoughts are with his family and friends during these tough times. Jocko Weyland recalled a conversation he had with CR Stecyk about Andy; Craig said that Andy "really affected change." Jocko's right in thinking that there's no higher praise.

    RIP In Peace: Dylan Rieder
    Born to ride a skateboard? It’s a seemingly silly concept when you think about it, but Dylan Rieder made us believe it. That man was absolutely, positively, a gift. Power, style, grace - he had it all. Our thoughts are with his family and friends in this difficult time. Rest in Peace, Dylan Rieder. We will all miss you, each day more than the next.

    RIP in peace - Matt Reason
    We're saddened to report the passing of East-Coast ruler Matt Reason. Matt charged into the mid-90s on 60+mm wheels, helping to erase the slow-push, tech-obsessed era that had previously engulfed skateboarding. His positive energy was contagious and he left a mark on every person he came in contact with. Rip in peace, Matt. Gone but never forgotten.
