Fuck I really didn't wanna read this. He has been my favorite skater of the current generation since his Earth Goblin part dropped. Rest in peace Zane, hope you're bombing hills with Pablo.

This is horrible. Anyone know happened to him?

His front 360 into the yellow sculpture is permanently seared into my memory. I’ve been skating for a long time and my heart doesn’t skip a beat at tricks very often anymore, but that was one of them.

Rest in peace, Zane. You left an impact on me and I’m sure countless others.

I just watched the Bronson vid a few days ago too. Probably just a weird coincidence but when I watched it I immediately noticed his shirt said “death is coming” and thought it was an interesting tee.

Ah man, such a bummer.  I just had watched that Bronson day in the life video with him.  He seemed very genuine and thoughtful and was such a ripper.  We're losing too many good ones.  RIP Zane

Zane
Was
The
Definition
Of
A
Skate
Rat.

Plain & simple: the man was one of us. One of OUR people. In the absolute realest of ways.

Only met him a few times, but I can say without hesitation… boy, was it a pleasure to watch him ride.

That 360 into the Sundial up at “the Dish” is an entire mountain of Gnar. Mind melting scale type of shit.
If you’ve ever seen it in person, you know it’s just NOT actually a skateable obstacle.

Until THIS Zane dude came along, that is.

Deepest, heartfelt condolences to his people.

Been a fan since New Pollution days, the kid was good back then, and just got better and better since. He truly would have been one of the greats, his parts were always so fucking good. Rest easy, big dawg

Unbelievable, saw a few people share some stuff of him on Instagram stories today and just thought it was sick he was getting more exposure, didn't think anything of it. Tragic whatever the circumstances were, this dude had a bright future.

Fuck, that's terrible news.  Coincidentally I majorly chipped the front of my ZT Heroin board this weekend and thought about buying a replacement, I wonder if there will be a benefit sale or anything to help his family.  If so I'll definitely buy another.

Gone too soon, the way he skated was simply amazing. He seemed an incredible person, collaborative, kind and sincere.

RIP to a true one

In his short time Zane left such a heavy impact of tricks that stuck with us all, I mean we'll all remember the front 360 forever.  He just had one of those minds and the skill to pull off the impossible.

The last few years have been incredibly fucked for losing skaters and it has to be so hard for anyone who was really around a lot of these guys to lose so many friends.

Terrible. As someone reconnecting with the wider skate community over the last few years I was really drawn to his skating, it instantly stood out.

Hope he’s skating weird spots in the gnarliest ways wherever he’s at now. Fuck man, another board for the wall.

Zane was pretty close with a bunch of the gx guys. He lived in San Fran and was homies with Pablo

I want to get one of his decks and actually ride it because I feel it would do it more Justice than hanging it up. Does anyone know if he has a model out that is smaller than 8.75 because that's really pushing it for me I can do 8.5. Thanks. Just trying to support. RIP.

This just doesn't feel real--can't wrap my head around it. Dude was so fucking gnarly, and every bit of footage I came across of his over the past few years was nothing short of a treat. Seemed like a great guy off the board as well. RIP.

He left sf because of all the shit that went down with gx.

Like some my first introduction to Zane was the front 3 into the dial, that trick among others will forever be ingrained within our culture, he has cemented his place in skating.

Through watching the Bronson and New Yorker pieces it was obvious he was intelligent, humble, and kind. Way too many loses over the past 5 or so years in skating.

I was going to say I really hope we didn't lose him due to bombing, but then i thought an unknown dose of fentanyl or something would be much worse. No matter the reason, it's horribly tragic at his young age.

Zane Timpson = Absolute ripper

All the love to his family and friends.
