Happy 71th Birthday Robert De Niro! (August 17, 1943)
“Jay Adams was not the greatest pool skater, nor was he the greatest bank skater, or the greatest slalom skater or the greatest freestyler. The fact is, Jay Adams’ contribution to skateboarding defies description or category. Jay Adams is probably not the greatest skater of all time, but I can say without fear of being wrong that he is clearly the archetype of modern-day skateboarding. Archetype defined means an original pattern or model, a prototype. Prototype defined means the first thing or being of its kind. He’s the real thing, an original seed, the original virus that infected all of us. He was beyond comparison. To this day I haven’t witnessed any skater more vital, more dynamic, more fun to watch, more unpredictable, and more spontaneous in his approach than Jay. There are not enough superlatives to describe him.” —Stacy Peralta
Jay adams have inspired so many people to this day, and he will continue on doing that, legends never die. Rest in paradise Jay, you will never be forgotten ♡
Wicked photo taken by photographer David Scott in mid 1970's Venice beach… Here is Jay Adams, member of the Dogtown-based Zephyr skate team, known as the Z-Boys.
"This is a picture that i’d like to have shown at my funeral you know you have photos of the person that died. This shows me in one of the happiest times of my life. Just young stoked on surfing and about as happy as a kid could be. Pop Pier was a perfect place to start surfing at. We had plenty of surf and Pop had a few different spots to surf at." - Jay Adams
