Jay Adams circa 1970 ~ Early 70s
“In contests, Jay was simply the most exciting skater to watch. He never skated the same run the same way twice. His routines were wickedly random yet exceedingly tight and beautiful to watch; he even invented tricks during his runs. I’ve never seen any skater destroy convention and expectation better. Watching him skate was something new every second - he was ‘skate and destroy’ personified.” - Stacy Peralta
This picture gave me chills. I wish he didn’t throw his life away to gangs and drugs.
