New York City and the world lost a crucial figure yesterday with the extremely untimely death of legendary skater Andy Kessler. Kessler, who pioneered East Coast skateboarding in the 1970’s with the Soul Artists of Zoo York, had been recently experiencing a surge in notoriety due to attention brought back on the OG NYC skateboard movement through the documentary film Deathbowl to Downtown. Kessler evidently died from complications following an allergic reaction to a wasp sting on Long Island. He was 48. He will be greatly missed. Join us as we take a moment to reflect with this amazing footage of the The Grandmaster of 108. Rest In Peace.
