Jay Adams Is Back.

By 08.01.08

I’m keeping my eyes peeled.

Every time I get on my skateboard, walk through Venice Beach or drive past the hill on Bicknell, I think about Jay Adams.

The face of Lords of Dogtown and the documentary Dogtown and Z-boys, Jay Adams was a young forefather of modern skateboarding. While the surf was down and drought was high, he and the crew from Jeff Ho’s Zephyr Surf Shop evolved swimming pools to vert ramps in the 70s. Soon came grinds on the lip of the empty behemoths, a little air and a grab of the board, and thus was born skating as we know it.

Both the documentary and the movie adaptation show Jay’s vicious slide from the throne of a pioneering prince. Long story short, he’s been in and out of prison all of his adult life and spent the last four years in an Oregon pen on a drug trafficking charge. Apparently, he still has a few more months to serve in a California halfway house, but is allowed to see his family and possibly attend this week’s X-Games in Los Angeles.

I’m keeping my eyes peeled.

Welcome back, Jay.
