Imagine. Skateboarding event at a skatepark. Hundreds of spectators. Massive bowl session. Crowded decks. Everyone vying for supremacy over themselves, each other and the coping. Over in a corner, Jay Adams could’ve cared less. He was helping a little grom put his new board together. The real deal. Legend.

“I was a P.O.P. local from birth. The ORIGINAL MASCOT. My dad rented surfboards under the Northside of the pier. All the guards at the park used to let me in for free. FUCK Disneyland, I had P.O.P., surf and all. I surfed the cove with Mickey Dora before leashes were invented.”
The service for Jay Adams was moving. The Calvary Chapel was crowded. I saw people crying and Christian Hosoi gave an amazing talk, as did the others. We should always leave people with kind words, as it may be the last time we see them. Rest In Peace Jayboy…

"This is a picture that i’d like to have shown at my funeral you know you have photos of the person that died. This shows me in one of the happiest times of my life. Just young stoked on surfing and about as happy as a kid could be. Pop pier was a perfect place to start surfing at. We had plenty of surf and Pop had a few different spots to surf at." - Jay adams
