Skateboarding icon Keith Hufnagel dies aged 46

Pro skateboarder and founder of the streetwear company Huf Worldwide Keith Hufnagel has died at the age of 46 in his Los Angeles home after battling brain cancer for two and a half years.

"We are absolutely heartbroken to deliver the news today that HUF founder Keith Hufnagel has passed away. Keith battled brain cancer for the past 2.5 years. And though he beat the odds and fought back much longer than his diagnosis permitted, he ultimately and unfortunately lost the fight," Huf Worldwide wrote in an Instagram post. "Keith paved the way for all of us – as a respected professional skateboarder, shop owner, brand founder, footwear and apparel designer, creative director, and industry leader. He showed us how to do it, and how do it right."
