RIP Zane Timpson

The multi-skilled Zane Timpson, part of the Bones Wheels team, has passed away on Monday. He is sorely missed, and Thrasher’s beautiful tribute pays respects to the rising star:

WE ALL KNOW ZANE FOR BEING AN ABSOLUTE GENIUS ON A SKATEBOARD. If you’ve ever seen his parts or were blessed with the opportunity to share a session with him, you were an incredibly lucky human being. Most people don’t realize how multifaceted Zane actually was. The depth of his character carried us all to push our boundaries not only in skateboarding but in all different forms of self expression. What he really loved and knew best was words. He was a poet, and his dark humor always brought catharsis or an existential giggle to the fact that whatever we were doing wasn’t serious at all. It took the edge off of life and definitely changed my perspective on what matters most to me. When nothing matters you get to pick exactly what’s most important to you and focus on that. That’s what he did, and he was the best at it. Zane did more for his close friends and family than anyone I’ve ever known. In the years we spent filming and editing our skateboard videos, he would go above and beyond to ensure that what we were trying to translate to the world actually made sense. He taught me everything I know and I will forever be indebted to him for creating a path that we could go down together. He lived the dream and brought everyone he loved along for the ride. That type of selflessness is hard to find these days and I can’t believe that I have the honor to call Zane my best friend. Thank you so much for all of your beautiful contributions to this crazy world. I love you so much, Zane. You will be dearly missed by all of us. —Adam Anorga
