REST IN PEACE: HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAY ADAMS (DOGTOWN VENICE Z-BOYZ) RIP! PHOTO BY GLEN FRIEDMAN.

Rest In Peace to Jay Adams who was born on this day, February 3rd 1961. He would have turned 59 years old today. Glen Friedman posted this classic photo he took of Jay Adams on his Instagram account and had some words to say:

JAY ADAMS would have been 59 years old today if he was still around.

1976, kick-turning on vertical, hand on the wall! RADICAL! The only way he knew how to be. This photograph from my first roll of color slide film, same roll my first ever published photograph came from, Jay was 15 years old, i was 14…

When you swipe left you see the last time i made a photo with Jay, i think it was 2011 at the VENICE skatepark. The following year we would both be inducted into The SkateBoarding Hall of Fame, he told me he was stoked we were going in the same year, along with Peggy Oki and some other friends
— Glen Friedman

Respect to all the OG Venice Dogtown Z-Boyz and Suicidal locals.
