Rest in Peace Andrew Grabowski 😢
« on: June 20, 2022, 05:34:42 PM »
fucking heartbreaking news that NY/ FL ripper Andrew Grabowski has passed after he was reported missing. Andrew was an amazing skateboarder and an amazing person and friend. it's so shitty having to type this. my love goes out to his family and his friends.

he was truly talented and one of a kind.

yeah man i just was told this too. been worried for a few days. awful to hear this. i've known him since 2003 and he's always stood out as talented. bums me out writing this.

here's a bunch of stuff i dug up. the old stuff is probably only interesting to those who knew him and i bet there's a lot whole lot else scattered around. it's crazy because he just kept getting better and better.

Never met a person who loved skateboarding more than him. He must've lived most of his life on granite tiles. I'm happy he was able to see his name on a board during his life. Complete skate rat and an incredibly passionate person. Unbelievable that he is gone at such a young age.

This is devastating, my condolences to his close ones and to the scene. Even despite the geographical distance and without meeting him, just from his video parts, clips and Instagram I could always tell he was a sincere skateboarder and dedicated, but unique profile. Already miss him, from a completely different country. Everyone show each other love and be safe.

fuck, this is heartbreaking, i just talked to him not so long ago and it seemed like he was doing really well, at least from afar. i don't live in the area anymore so hadn't been in touch with him as often lately but we'd catch up at least once a year since we're birthday twins, and he was always remembering to wish me a good one. lots of good memories skating the diy in syracuse with him, he'd do the hardest tricks out of nowhere, switch v flip five-o? no problem. inward heel tail the tall ledge at evs? ez! RIP Andrew, and condolences to all the upstate and florida friends, and the rest all over too.

Are you an FM local?

I never heard anyone ever say a bad thing about him either. He was the type of dude who was instantly your friend when you met him. When he moved to FM from New York I tripped out on his NY accent and the way he said, "word." - "wheeard." that was my first impression of him and it's been burned into my brain.

I've seen him do STUPID shit. Switch backside flip nosegrinds. Switch everything.

He is really missed right now and will forever be missed. My love goes out to those who are hurting.

Hard to believe these days at the park were almost 10 years ago. Andrew's got the last tricks in the first two montages and does some wild stuff in the last link. Damn I miss these days. I miss these people.

Met Drew when he first moved to *FM and he was instantly a great friend. Having known him for roughly 13 years, I can honestly say I've never had even the slightest argument with him. He was that dude. The nicest, the most humble. The take his shirt off his back for you guy. He was such a genuine person, and I'm gunna miss him so much man.

Tons of people at the spot and tons of ripping. It was great to see so many people that Drew spent time with during his life. His close friends and family did a great job organizing the event. Went from before 2pm on through the night. Incredibly sad he's gone, but the gathering was pretty much perfect.

What an amazing turn out. I didn't expect anything less. I couldn't help but tear up watching his dad and his aunt speak. His dad said it best, "Andrew pulled the last laugh because he got everyone to come out and skate."
