    Default RIP Jay Adams

    Just heard Jay Adams died yesterday, of a heart attack.

    RIP to one of the most definitive raw skateboarders...

    A true icon.

    I saw him randomly in HB a couple of years ago drinking a coffee on his own. Too scared to approach him obvs.

    It's so sad and for anyone getting old(er), like me, a bit scary. Only yesterday I read something on Tom "Wally" Inouye's instagram about being stoked to be still skating in his mid-50s. That made me pleased I could have another 10+ years of skating in me, then today we have the opposite news.

    He was a pretty good indicator for the future of skating, not necessarily a good role model! We could be wearing uniforms if it weren't for some of these legends.

    There are so many amazing photos out there - feel free to contribute here.

    Jay Adams saw the future of skateboarding a decade before it existed.

    When I watched dogtown (doc) at cinema when it came out I just bombed hills and skidded about for about a month afterwards.


    RIP
