Damn, that sucks. I skated with him a few times when we were filming for the digital “sane” video. Really nice guy. He had a lot of positive energy when we went out on filming missions for the video. Rest easy buddy..

When I was younger I thought the world industries team he was a part of was so sick (granted at the time all I knew about world was flame boy/wet Willy era), and this promo around that time was my all time fav.

Always a fan of that dude! Rest easy, Kurtis!

Aside from horrendous sponsor choices at the end of his career, how come this dude never really blew up? He was early with the tats and skated tv contests, but didn’t have one “legit” sponsor m. Always figured he must have been a kook or something but apperently he was the homie. So what’s his story.
Rest In Peace regardless

he kinda did at his world times but then he never got hooked up properly, his last "relevant" times were around the infamous Famous stars and straps video from 2010... (was ever released?)

I remember being stoked on him before but then he went into that weird fit of tight/baggy jeans + bigtall shirt that makes everyone look like shit no matter the skills. He was damn good but faded in between the rest of the dudes of the time.

RIP dude, you killed it

Forgot who told the story, but somebody on Real was trying to get him on, he went on a tour with everybody and apparently just didn't fit. I kind of liked him being a weird fringe industry guy that ripped. Rest in peace.

Wasn't he a pal? Or maybe someone just joked about being him a long time ago.

RIP.

I think it was Darell. Him, Scott Kane, and Kurtis were always skating together at my local growing up. Always was super nice to everyone. I can see why so many are saying the same thing in the comments. RIP Kurtis.

Listen to the bunt with damien bravo and a couple other ones. He was cool, but quirky in a way. Long Beach legend, rip.

Saw there's a GoFundme setup for him to give him a proper burial and it looks to be somewhat time sensitive. I do know he's got children as well.
