Social media channels across the internet has been abuzz over the past hours with posts, obituaries and reports that loved, respected and famed Z Boy and Dogtown skateboarding pioneer Shogo Kubo had died while paddleboarding near his home in Hawaii yesterday morning. Shogo was a bonafide influence on skateboarders since the early 70’s and he possessed that style that we all strived for. Veteran skate photographer has shared some profound words and important photos in respect to Shog’s passing. Please have a read and the next time that you’re on your skateboard, please lay into a long stylish grind in remembrance of our fallen friend. Rest in Peace Shogo Kubo.
