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
