What the heck happened to Steve Claar? I know he lost a leg but I never did find out exactly how. I know that he does still skate and surf, which makes him just that much more badass.

I'd heard about him losing a leg, too. I think he had a Last Words within the last few years in TWS. He's popped up in some event party photos, too. Somebody needs to track him done for an update.

He's playing in a band these days. He did lose his leg in a surfing accident. His leg got cut, later got infected and had to be amputated.

Steve Claar is my brother. He did get his leg cut off. Not in a surfing accident per say, He had a bunch of medical problems come up at once. He has a blood disorder so he had no blood flow to his leg. He's still in SD, married and has a son. His son is a little skate rat too. He is doing great!!It's great to see that people still wonder about him. He is a legend...He is in a band called Batarzan.. Check them out..

I grew up at the Tamberly Lane condos in Santee where Steve used to live. He was great. He was the local hero of me and the other skate rats. I always had a crush on his sister Cory who also lived there. She was a cutie. Fond memories of the guy. He would always give us decks, wheels, and stickers.

I had a huge crush on Steve Claar. I met him once, in 1990. He's probably the easiest person I ever met, maybe even the coolest. You could see it in the way he skated. Watch a video.

Steve is the Man !! He taught me how to stall my inverts at the Del Mar Keyhole in 1986. Then I would see him making boards for Uncle Wiggley. Years later he was doing 6ft plus frontside ollies at the Fallbrook Ramp. He is on my all time favorite skater list.
