St Louis has lost a great skater and all around awesome person. Considering that Ryan was always so funny and had such an outgoing personality it was a shock to find out that he took his own life. He was one of the skaters from STL that would cross the river to come to our shop and it was always a pleasure to see him. It's hard to know exactly what to say when something like this happens. Our hearts go out to the Brinkmann family, the No Coast crew, the Suspect crew and anyone else that had the pleasure of meeting and skating with Ryan Brinkmann.
