Zane Timpson revealed his 'suffering' in final Instagram posts during the weeks before skateboarder 'died at 26'

SKATEBOARDER Zane Timpson shared his “suffering” in one of his final Instagram posts weeks before his “death”.

Rumors are circulating online that Timpson has passed away as skaters paid tribute to the 26-year-old.

The skater shared a collection of poems from his book Sufferlove last month.

His "road away" poem was displayed on a background showing an open highway and a clear blue sky.

It reads: “Sunrise in nowhere, America dry so beautiful. Offering my whole self to the great away on the other side of the horizon.

“With our bare hands in every moment finding the opportunity, open road of possibility brand new suffer.

“This is where alright is kickin it with content and grateful breathing. Light painted by those I love enough to guide me back into new spots, new fronts, new grinds the feeling always worth chasing (sic).   

“In gasping success ragged elation building a new now. The home in my chest – stay there a while.”

Timpson's book Sufferlove is a portfolio of poems and artwork that the skateboarder produced over the past year.

And, a caption underneath a clip of Zane skating in the park reads: "Up and then down."

Many tributes have been paid to the skateboarder following his reported passing.

A potential cause of death has not been revealed as his family has not yet commented.

Skater Jordan Maxham said: "I cried all day yesterday. I hugged your pro model board that you signed for me. I took it skating with me and went frontside the whole time. I read our texts and called you.

"You didn't answer. I left you a voice mail that nobody will hear. If they do, They won't understand cause I could barely speak through the flood of tears.

"I woke up crying again today, I still can't grasp the fact that you are away."

And, skater Milton Martinez said: “Rest in peace man. Love your skateboarding.”


In an obituary published in Thrasher, pal Adam Anorga commented: "If you’ve ever seen his parts or were blessed with the opportunity to share a session with him, you were an incredibly lucky human being.

"Most people don’t realize how multifaceted Zane actually was. What he really loved and knew best was words.

"He taught me everything I know and I will forever be indebted to him for creating a path that we could go down together. He lived the dream and brought everyone he loved along for the ride.

"That type of selflessness is hard to find these days and I can’t believe that I have the honor to call Zane my best friend."

Timpson was a member of the Bones Wheels Team alongside multiple amateur and pro riders, including legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk.

He was not globally ranked but had several sponsors including Westernworld Clothing, Adidas, McGills Skate Shop, and Heel Bruise, according to The Boardr.
