RIP Andy Kessler : NYC skate legend passes

We are saddened to find out today that NYC lost a legendary skater yesturday. Skateboarder Andy Kessler passed on August 10th due to an allergic reaction. He was a legendary pioneer in the NYC skate scene and more recently became a huge influence in the skateboarding community and culture.

NYMag had a great article featuring Andy and even an old school photo of his that can be read here.

We send our deepest condolences and know that all the n00bs have great shoes to fill.
