Also, his Raw Ams part was always the stoke. Him yelling ďman, thatís the 3rd time I went under a FUCKING car in my whole lifeĒ always got me so charged up to go skate and go for it!! Contagious skate energy with Dave Abair

and i understand people naturally want answers but just an fyi: when the sources arent stating cause of death (i.e. hit by a car, freak accident, etc) its almost always out of respect for them. if it isnt being made public and youre not close enough to know, have some respect dont ask especially on myspace ig whatever. itll make its way into the public eventually.

So I strangely think of him almost every morning WAYYYY before all this.

He had a day in the life video that shows him bombing hills in SF to get warmed up. Itís a small detail but he always got the ice water to go with his morning coffee and Iíve done that ever since seeing that!! Thanks for the constant stoke and reminder to stay hydrated Abair!!

RIP to a fellow New Englander, youíre a legend

I wasn't aware of the guy at all, but in honor of him, I just watched all his video parts.  He skated with a fast raw style and had a good trick selection to boot. RIP Dave

Also, doing a front side half-cab in a line is dope. He made them look good

Rest in Peace Dave Abair.  Condolences to his family and loved ones.

I've never met him,  but this part from 411vm is what made me a fan and stuck with me throughout the years. Idk if he picked the song,  but i ended buying the album on and would think of him everytime the track comes on, especially if I'm about to skate.

Rest in Peace, Dave.

I skated with him once in Oakland.  This was a shortly after the 'Fool's Gold' video came out.  We were all together in someones car driving around the East Bay, and he had his head out the window keeping his eyes open for things to skate, but for every 'almost a spot' we passed, he'd yell out... "Fools Gold!"  It was pretty funny. Nice guy with contagious energy.

My last Dave experience was bombing haight street. As the hill started I noticed a guy walking in a hoodie. Being observant, I turn my head and it ended up being Dave. We looked at each other at the same time and with minimal time, gave eachother a friendly ďwhatís upĒ gesture and he seemed more stoked than I even felt. Rest In Peace Abair.

Oh dude, this was it. Nice pull! He basically filmed a whole part in one day with the Thrasher hoodie, damn. That Wallie 5050 line was especially dope.

Whoever said he throws front half cabs in lines and makes them look great, totally on point. Agreed!

The news totally wrecked my week. I always loved seeing his clips pop up, too. We lost a real one.

Zach Chamberlin just posted this of him:

Let's bomb a hill today.
Real talk, though: that hill is coming down off of the side of Bernal Hill, towards Precita Park and just after that, Cesar Chavez. It's the sort of hill you don't even want to walk up, let alone bomb down, if you're even remotely a reasonable person. It's chock full o' chunk and fraught with intersections. Never mind the fact that the side street the line/run began on is, in fact, even steeper!
Seriously, if your in town, check it out.
Gnar-gnars forever for Dave Abair; may he spend his eternity in paradise.

I feel you my man, I don't know everything and wish I didn't know the little I do.  My heart is so heavy from missing his last call a few weeks back.  Just to have one more time.  Fuck

I didn't know him personally, but I loved his skating and have followed him over the years. Back in high school I would watch his Shuffl part before damn near any session. Rest in power to a San Francisco legend.

So many idiots freaking out about the absolutely common reaction of wondering how someone died.

Get over yourselves, it's tragic that the dude passed for sure, but if it can serve as a cautionary tale to the thousands of skateboarders who are out there taking risks in one way or another everyday that would be a GOOD thing. You can guarantee there isn't a single person who has unfortunately rolled out before their time that wouldn't want people to learn from their experiences somehow.

The self-righteousness is a joke.
