Sad Stuff-R.I.P. Van Wastell

Taken From Skate Daily-

"There are no confirmed details at this time, but it is with profound sadness that we report of the untimely death of Van Wastell. He was just 24 years old and had just turned pro and was definitely one of the true originals. Van will be greatly missed!"

New Info From Matix Clothing

"There are some things in life you can never prepare for. I received a call from DLX's Jim Thiebaud yesterday, his voice calm but unsteady. What he went on to tell me was seemingly unbelievable. On Friday Sept. 5th, Van Wastell fell from a Berlin hotel window to his death. This is devastating news for all of us here at Matix, as Van was our friend, our team rider and a close homie of mine. I don't know what else to say other than we will miss the fuck out Van, he will continue his journey in mind and spirit. Our hearts goes out to the Wastell family during this time of confusion and sadness. WE ALREADY MISS YOU MUCH VAN..."

Rest in Peace.
