Legendary skater Keith Hufnagel — one of the most influential skateboarders of all time — passed away earlier this week at the age of 46.
The cause of Hufnagel’s death is unclear.
Hufnagel — who was born in NYC in 1974 — had a massive impact on the East Coast skating scene in the 90s … and beyond.
In addition to being a badass on the board, Hufnagel was also the founder of the immensely popular and important skate shop, HUF Worldwide.
The skate legend is recognized as a streetwear and sneaker icon.
USA Skateboarding released a statement on KH’s death, saying … “We are devastated to hear that Keith Hufnagel has passed away. His impact on skateboarding, both on his board and off it as a designer, brand owner/founder and friend will live forever. Rest in peace, Keith”
Keith is survived by his wife, Mariellen … and their children.
