R.I.P Jay Adams, A legend passes

Jay adams the legend passes RIP

The legendary dogtown skater Jay Adams Died late Thursday while on holiday in mexico, I can only hope doing what he loved to do most shred the Gnar in whatever form! Jay and the small crew of Venice Beach locals where part of the Dogtown crew that shredded the local parks and abandoned pools of Venice and los Angeles Throughout the 1970's, the surfers in Dogtown were aggressive and antisocial. They fit into the stereotype of the time that surfers were poor dropouts. For a lot of these young people, surfing and skateboarding was all they  had. Jay was admittedly one of the most naturally gifted of the entire crew  

Jay was in Mexico on a long surf trip and had already been there for 3 months and had no history of heart problems.

You will be missed, A true legend of surf and skate

The leash works amazing i won't go out without my leash on....

Bula hand board

This handboard is exactly what I was looking for. The size and craftsmanship is fantastic! I have gotten some great rides with this board. Super fun.

Ready for the Senior Tour

I received my Slyde Phish just before 2 weeks of gloomy weather. Now that I’ve had a chance to road test it, I can’t wait to get back in the water.

Growing up in Long Island NY, body surfing was my first wave gliding experience. Typically we would drive straight to shore so surfing the diagonal has been a learning curve.

I look forward to many great sets this summer.

So much fun!

These little boards are amazing! We bought a couple to bring with us to Hawaii and had a blast.. super easy to travel with, just fit right in my backpack. Made riding the waves so much fun and worked just as good as a full sized boogie board one of my friends had. Highly recommended. Can’t wait to try it out again!

Love my Bula!

I recently been spending a lot of time on the North Shore of Oahu, and there’s nothing better than the Bula for bigger more intense surf. Too much fun brah! Mahalo nui loa!
