I thought this was the guy that rolls with the GX1000 crew but that is another guy.

Pretty bad year with so many deaths this year. RIP.

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

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


I thought it was this guy who passed but I guess they just look similar if Zane cut his hair.

This is a terrible thing to hear, skateboarding lost a great person today. Condolences to his friends and family.

Just rewatched his most recent part and it started with a tribute to p spliff and ended with a tribute to henry gartland  :'(

This is horrible. A sad day in skateboarding. The SF scene has seen a lot of deaths recently even though I know a lot the guys came from other cities, but skated a lot in SF. Zane T. Max Van Arnem, Abbas Glass and Dave Abair.

Is the scene very unhealthy there or is it just a coincidence that all of the above skaters have had great connection to SF? I know every death are unique circumstances, but are their something in the skate scene of that city that isn't right?

I am sorry if I ask this question to quickly after this horrible news. I ask in a respectful manner, but still wondering.

I wish their friends and family best.

Tragic.  Such a gnarly skater and seemed like a rad dude.

Anyone know what happened?  I think it's important to let people know, esp if it helps anyone deal with their own current state of affairs to avoid another instance
where is home?

Damn, fucked up if that's what happened. But this somehow seems easier to accept than if he died in a similair incident as Pspliff.

It is oddly more comforting to know someone died because their time was just up too soon rather than that they fell victim to a tragic accident or took their own life.
This is not my SOTY. I'm telling my kids there was no SOTY for 2021

i don't usually get too worked up about the passing of people i didn't know, but this one really got to me

sometimes there's a person who seems like they're going to make a big impact over many years, and zane was one of them, to me.

some people just seem like they're going to help define an era, and it's exciting when that person with all that potential aligns with your own ideas about how things should progress in skating. it feels like there's something to look forward to, just for that person being around and having their impact.

Dylan was like that to me. in music, that was how i felt about Power Trip as well. Just people who are poised to put their mark on the culture for the next 10+ years, and i feel lucky to be around to watch it and participate, in my own small way.

and then when they're gone, it's like the rug got pulled out and the culture takes a slightly different path. the impact is still there but you don't get to see what acts 2 and 3 would have brought.

this is nothing compared to how their families and friends must feel, but it's my way of understanding why it can be really upsetting for someone to die, even if you didn't know them.

RIP zane, i think we should all keep him in mind while we rip some boneless, grab, and no-comply tricks

Damn, I met Zane at the Element Skate camp when I was a counselor. I think the year was 2008. He had been assigned to my cabin. I was running the zine program at the time and he was instantly stoked on it. Asking questions about printing photos, markers, paper, etc. He inspired a lot of people to get involved with it that week.

He also pushed for the cabin to repeatedly sleep outdoors in the bowl, on the vert ramp, and street course.

I'd run into him over the years here in San Francisco and he was always the kindest most stoked individual. The level of skateboarding he was at was insane, just pure next level barging.

He will be missed.

Well said. When I first started skating all I could do was no comply 180s and a couple of locals gave me a lot of shit for it. When Earth Goblin came out, it was the first full-length video I ever watched, so Zane's part was the first actual pro part I'd ever seen. Seeing him do a fs no comply on a legit street obstacle really inspired me to not give a shit about what those guys thought of me.

Oddly same, just seemed like his future in skating was so bright and he had such a unique approach. Seeing so many people say beautiful things about how kind he was and everything. Made the mistake of going through Instagram comments on his posts last night and saw his girlfriend had went and commented on like every one of them sharing her memories of that day hit me really weird. I’m usually not so effected by ‘celebrity’ deaths so to speak but this one landed. Puts things in perspective.

RIP Zane Timpson . Been watching him skate since his camp woodward days. Very sad to hear and a huge loss.
