Legend Jay Adams Dies on Surf Trip


The “original seed” of skateboarding, concrete- and bowl-riding pioneer Jay Adams died of a heart attack late Thursday while on an extended surf trip in Mexico. TMZ reports that the DogTown legend and Venice mainstay was in the third month of a holiday with his wife. It was the first time in 20 years that Adams was allowed to leave the United States having been in and out of jail since the eighties on various felony drug charges.

His last Instagram post was from Mexico.
