Around new year's day we learned the terrible news that Wilko Grüning had passed on December 24th 2014.

Not only was Wilko a talented and passionate skateboarder, but an endearing, headstrong, creative and very special young man. He brought openness and honesty to every encounter he made, and confronted himself with the world in a contemplative and critical way. He will be dearly missed by anyone that loved and regarded him.

Our innermost commiseration is with his family and friends.

Wilko, you will be dearly missed!

Wilko Grüning RIP
