RIP Z-Boy Bob “The Bullet” Biniak


We are sad to report that Bob Biniak, original Z-Boy, suffered a massive cardiac arrest on Sunday and passed away earlier today in Florida. He is survived by his wife Charlene and daughter Brie. Glen E. Freidman has some memories of his friend Bob and more pictures on his site, found here.

There will be a sunset memorial skate for Bob this Sunday at the Dennis “Polar Bear” Agnew Skate Park in Venice Beach.
