Very sad day for skateboarding.

RIP to an absolute legend that had an immeasurable impact on the East Coast and Bay Area skate scenes. In his prime he was ollieing higher than most and gapping out further than anyone to lipslides, manuals, etc. Can't forget how quick footed he was while doing all of this either.

Dude taught so many of us that being a pro skateboarder was so much more than just doing the gnarliest/most tech trick. As a kid I would see his ads doing a backside flip on a bank either NYC or SF and it was just a slap in the face that it was all about the power style and form. Forever appreciated his skating from then on

HUF really was one of the Titans of skateboarding. Everything I loved about skateboarding stemmed from watching his video parts - powering through the streets with style and control, no matter how unbelievably crusty the spot might be.

Keith's legacy will live on in skateboarding forever, no denying it. Master of the streets. It just feels unbelievably difficult to process as someone who only knew him from afar, as a skateboarder. My condolences to his family and friends who knew the man behind the legendary skateboarder.

Rest in peace Keith Hufnagel, you are the east coast powerhouse.

Such a good cool skater and awesome to see someone with great taste able to translate that into a successful brand.   Loved those quake print sneakers.  Hoping someone can put together a 90s heavy retrospective.  Those loose IG clips blow me away

When I read about the news on here the other day, I shot this photo for fun. I know it's a shoe photo but I bought these from the HUF Sutter store and thought it'd be cool in front of the Golden Gate Bridge.

I lost an old skate buddy from high school earlier this week.

I'm sorry for your loss.
Huf's skating was some of the first to show me that tricks aren't everything - my high school friends used to always want to skip his Skate More part, but I didn't. His technique is absolutely timeless - so many classic parts are very visibly of the time they were filmed - ledge dancing in the late 2000's for example. Aside from the gear, Keith's parts could come out tomorrow and still be respected. Maybe half cab noseslide to back tail backside bigspin was in vouge for 3 years there, but a strong ollie will always be more memorable. Not only that, but he's one of the few skaters to hold their own on both coasts without either coast's footagew seeming like (to borrow a quote from Quartersnacks) the 'summer trip to SF/NYC' vibe. He made both of those cities his.
The fact that not one person has a bad thing to say about him (even his ex-wife, if you watch his Epicly Later'd) says a lot about him.
RIP HUF.

yea! what i meant was that he fit both of those cities so well to the point where you didnt think of him as one or the other. not a lot of people can pull that off. i think somebody else mentioned but his footage never looked like a "summer vacation to SF". his approach felt so natural wherever he was.

Great video parts aside, he showed the world that there was a life outside being a pro skater having run a successful shoe and lifestyle brand. I'm probably getting the dates mixed up but I always remember HUF shoes as being simple, functional yet elegant. His brand proved that an independent brand could thrive and laid the groundwork for bespoke board and shoe companies.

Him skating to Heart in Real to Reel will always be etched in my heart. RIP Huf, you're shredding with angels now.

The Real to Reel-era Real had a lasting impact for me as a skateboarder.

Just the name "KEITH HUFNAGEL" alone sounded so damn cool so we were magnetized towards his skating. Like for many others, anytime Crazy on You plays, first thing that comes to mind is "Huf, Real to Reel."

RIP.

Such a big loss.
On a trip to the US around 96 I bought Non Fiction on VHS. I brought it back with me to Europe and it was a bitch to convert, cause European VHS format was different. I finally managed to convert it and his part was the one I watched the most by far. Even though quality was shitty because of converting.
RIP, my thoughts go out to his family.
I really want to watch that 9 club itw but if he was already sick....gonna be a hard watch.

(these sad news got me going through my old Slap mag collection....and I found this Fun ad)

RIP to a Real skateboarder, I think it's a good time for us to exhalt his genius.

Not a trend follower, sticked to his great style.

He showed how to transition correctly from Pro Skateboarder to Entrepreneur

Into fashion but never too kooky

Pushed hard on Weed marketing, and made a huge profit of of it

Started a successful shoe brand which stood greatly next to the big corpo brands.

My best friend is currently fighting brain cancer, so this is hitting me especially hard. Even with all the best treatments, the prognosis is really bad. He had a gran mal seizure about a year ago and they found a massive tumor. He was told he may only have a few years. It still hasnít sunk in for me.

Skimming through pictures, you can see the scar over his right temporal lobe from the tumor removal in lookbacklibraryís photo from a couple years back. Listening to his 9 Club episode, it didnít really impact speech/memory so much. That was a real blessing for his family.

I'm sorry for your loss.
Huf's skating was some of the first to show me that tricks aren't everything - my high school friends used to always want to skip his Skate More part, but I didn't. His technique is absolutely timeless - so many classic parts are very visibly of the time they were filmed - ledge dancing in the late 2000's for example. Aside from the gear, Keith's parts could come out tomorrow and still be respected. Maybe half cab noseslide to back tail backside bigspin was in vouge for 3 years there, but a strong ollie will always be more memorable. Not only that, but he's one of the few skaters to hold their own on both coasts without either coast's footagew seeming like (to borrow a quote from Quartersnacks) the 'summer trip to SF/NYC' vibe. He made both of those cities his.
The fact that not one person has a bad thing to say about him (even his ex-wife, if you watch his Epicly Later'd) says a lot about him.

I met Huf in 1995 or 96, when the REAL team came to my town for a demo.

I remember buying a board from him; everyone was skating toothpick 7.5s at the time, and the deck he sold me, the same model he was skating, seemed absolutely huge, but was probably an 8.25 (at most). I couldn't believe how much better I skated and how much more fun I had on that deck, it was a revelation. I could pop-and-catch kickflips seemingly effortlessly.

Anyway, even though I only spoke to him for a few minutes, I can still remember being impressed with how cool he was. Seemed mature beyond his years (he must have been 22 or so at the time).

Rest in power to a true legend.

Huf was a solid person.  I'm with Sleazy on this one... by that I mean I am watching his parts and honoring his legacy.  In an unrelated manner to sleazy, as a narcissist, of course I want to make this about myself. I remember seeing Rattatat open for Interpol in LA in the late 2000's or early 2010's (can't remember exactly) but they fucking ripped. I wanted to use the song Huf used but fortunately he used it instead of me.

The ultimate equalizer (death) of our fates should remain a constant reminder that we need to make the most of our time here with the people we are experiencing this life with.  His passing is a sobering reminder that the clock is ticking for each of us and that we should soak up this experience in 2020, even if 2020 is a veritable shitshow.

Keith is gone far too soon.  Don't spend too much time at the office.  Don't spend too much time worrying about the numbers you see in your bank account when you log into your bank account.  Rather, spend time hearing those sounds we find so therapeutic (urethane over cracks; that abnormally gratifying crunchy grind on a poorly waxed curb or coping). 

Fuck cancer

This was really shocking for me to hear... I haven't processed it yet, but Huf had a huge impact on me. I remember seeing skate more and had this Epiphany that ollies are the coolest trick when they are just done with such a huge power!

I didn't know he had cancer, so it came totally out of the blue... Rest in Peace!

Exactly - which is also why Huf's parts will stay timeless!

Place re-launched one of his interviews as an homage to Keith, pretty fun read and a good way to remember all the positivity HUF brought to skateboarding.

Some other cool Huf stuff. An art show of him in LA along with Yeezy style shirt release. Would be cool to see in person.

One of the first videos I saw was Real to Reel & it had a huge impact on my skating, style, music, etc... Keith's part always stood out, he didn't have to do the techest tricks or the biggest rails but everything he did looked fucking good. I'll never forget that last trick ollie at the carwash gap with Lance Dawes commenting, "That's the real shit right there." Keith was the real shit, there is too much I could say about him & the way he impacted me as a skateboarder, a fan & the industry as a whole. Sending my thoughts & love to his family, goodbye brother.

Everything Keith did was on point, from a very early age.
There isn't one single thing I can think of that wasn't done so right.
I'm still very shocked by his death...what a cunt of a year.
