He was always killing it in skate maps on the Zoo York team.

Just registered (after realising I've locked myself out of my actual account) to post this, saw it on Appleyard's Instagram a few minutes ago.

So strange, was just thinking about him a few days ago and realised I hadn't seen his skating in a long long time.

Rest in Peace Robert

Damn. He really fucking ripped. There was an older video I’ve mentioned here before where he tried to ollie this massive gap into a parking lot, didn’t land it but it was so big. Still think about that clip a lot as a reminder to just go for it when I’m trying to ollie bigger things. Rest In Peace.

I used to see him on Skate Maps, he was the coming storm that was Ams who went harder than pros. He skated the biggest sets & gaps without fear. This is terrible news.

Damn! Always wondered what happened to him. Seemed like he could’ve gotten a better deal than Zoo at some point at his skill level for the time. He killed it on Skate Maps. What a bummer

Damn RIP.

Random, but I watched him try to nollie back 180 the Love gap way back.

He didn't land on any but was bringing them down. As an avid nollie back 180'er I remember thinking what an INSANE thing that would be to even try. He definitely had a ton of heart.

He has a rad part in this PR video that flew under the radar. It has the footage of this massive boardslide from a Substance Skateboards ad if anyone remembers that.

http://youtu.be/VRhhbiGohnI?t=1500

Link is tagged to his part, but not embedding.

Such a great skater. Some of the stuff he did in the Bay Area when he was living here is psycho. RIP.

He had heavy clips in every video he was in. Could've been way bigger.

Damn. This one sucks. I worked at a shop when I was 17 and Osiris came to town and I showed them around to a few spots. Me and Robert chilled and just talked about everything. He was mad cool. RIP man.

Another skate maps reference but that dude was so raw. I remember they would roll up to a spot and while everyone was checking it out he’d be the first one to charge it. His confidence was insane and very inspiring as a little kid learning to skate. RIP to a true ripper.

Damn, I just stumbled across his instagram a couple months ago and was psyched to see he was still skating. RIP :(

Damn, RIP. One of my favorite things being in PR was hearing about the crazy shit he did at each spot we'd end up at. It turned into a running joke to make up something crazy and obviously impossible that he did, and then try to figure out if truth or fiction. It was hard.
