VBWL ; ZOOYORK was actually Andy's sk8 klan way back in 1980 in New York City.He came up with ZOOYORK, some of the group was Papo who lives in San Diego now, Haze,Jaime and others. That board that you see there was a SMA Jay Adams pig ,that was painted ZOOYORK and in the center of the cross has Andy's name.In other words Andy was the OG of ZOOYORK

Def stylin!

Yeah the NYC crew has shown a lot of respect our way, DogTown was always the underground thing that the OG's knew about since the 70's. and the first respected graffitti artist was named Zephyr, He came out in like 82 84 and did a piece on the breakwater, it was the longest running untouched piece I have ever seen. It lasted til the wall came down. I went to NY in 87 and had a blast with Alyasha and Eli Gesner, Aaron and Beasley(RIP). I still have one of Beasleys TRIP cards..

They were the younger guys...And showed me alot cuz, they have respect for their roots like we do, and the Brooklyn cats were very much like Venetians. brothers from another mother...

Hello. My first post and I wish it wasn't due to Andy's injury. I was lucky enough to meet and skate with (around really) Andy while living in NY for 4 years during the years 99-2004. Andy is a total ruler. When he shows up at a session things always seem to pick up. He doesn't leave a square inch of surface or coping untouched. The guy finds such great lines. He's like the spirit of skateboarding for sure. He's always fun to talk with and an all around humble guy. I'm glad to have had the opportunity to meet him.

I could go on and on about my first experiences and first sessoins including the Kessler. I'd be with Armando at the Deitch gallery http://snipurl.com/enf5-PWJGE and Andy would be all flow. Those were the raddest winter days in NYC for me. And there was a contest at Owls Head one summer and Andy had more style than anyone I have ever seen. It was the first time I had seen him skate in person and it was rad!

I first heard of Andy's mishap from my friend Armando "RoadRider4" who showed up to Andy's art show in Bklyn only to hear from Steve Olsen that Andy had slammed bad while riding the secret squirrel bowl bowl in SOHO which he had helped design and build http://snipurl.com/enfa-PI1RF and wouldn't be there to present his work which included a signature model skate deck. Back to the bowl where the injury took place. I call it the "Matrix Bowl" because Rich, the guy who owns it designed the glasses for the Matrix movies. Rich also rips on a skateboard and is a cool guy.

At any rate, a legend has been hurt and our thoughts and prayers go out to him. He's not just a dude who rips on a skateboard and acts all cool. Andy Kessler is important in skateboarding because of his soul and love for skateboarding and his appreciation for an activity that brings so many of us together.....sometimes more frequently than we'd like.....but it's what we really love! Andy is skateboarding if you ask me. The dude is skateboarding. Levi's should make Andy Kessler jeans. That would rule!

Parting shot that says it all! Legends! http://snipurl.com/enf3-ZD2AT

Andy, if you read this "Get well!!" Hope to hear of a strong recovery.
