My first bike was a Mirra 540 Air in the early 2000's. I always thought of Mirra as a legend, on par with Hoffman, Nyquist and the other big names of that era.

Really sad to see him go. I can't even imagine how shitty life must have been for him to end it like that. I bet it was something like CTE but we will never know, which is unfortunate because we obviously need to do a lot more research on the subject.

2016 has been fucking shitty so far.

Still hoping this is a lie somehow. He influenced me so much i had to have a haro and indeed my first bike wad a haro backtrail x2 with gyro and u brakes. Not as bad as mirras top of the línea but still good enough to be a haro. Dave mirra was synonym of haro bikes and haro led the market as dave was on his prime. Can tell why moliterno ripped so bad on him. Dave mirra was indeed no god and can hope e/o struggling take this as a last miracle from the miracle boy. R.I.P. Dave Mirra your life was indeed a miracle to a lot of us.

The people selling these shirts are ghouls profiting off Dave Mirra's death. Complete scumbags. I emailed save.org - a legitimate organization dedicated to suicide prevention who is mentioned as the beneficiary - and they know nothing about this.

I also called teechip dot com and they seem to make it a lot harder to report fraud than to commit it. Feel free to let them know as I have at copyright@teechip.com. This needs to come down.

I saw that on youtube. Miron gets crushed! It was cringe worthy. Definitely made Jay look like a complete amateur compared to Dave.

Oops! I must've been thinking about a buddy of mine while I was typing that out as he went out in a very similar fashion.

Suicide sucks.

I made a shirt with their name. Money for Ed.

Growing up I had a really close rider friend who sweat Ed. He was this half Colombian kid named Dave and he did all the hard tricks when we were kid like hop bars, xup feebles, 180 feebles on the crappiest ledges when we were like 14. I remember this local guy Bert sold him an old Ed frame and he was so stoked. Then one day he just kind of randomly passed away. I saw some people were raising money and I was like why not.
