Rest in Peace to skateboarding pioneer and super hero Jay Adams. We owe a lot to Jay for taking skateboarding vertical in backyard pools and pushing the limits of what was possible during skateboarding’s formative years. You’re a legend Jay, you will be missed!

100% skateboarder, he paved the way for us all and was one of the originals behind skateboarding as we know it. It is with a heavy heart we learned today that Jay Adams has passed away. Rest In Peace Jay, your impact on skateboarding and all of us will live forever.

Jay Adams was not the greatest pool skater, nor was he the greatest bank skater, or the greatest slalom skater or the greatest freestyler. The fact is, Jay Adams’ contribution to skateboarding defies description or category. Jay Adams is probably not the greatest skater of all time, but I can say without fear of being wrong that he is clearly the archetype of modern-day skateboarding. Archetype defined means an original pattern or model, a prototype. Prototype defined means the first thing or being of its kind. He’s the real thing, an original seed, the original virus that infected all of us. He was beyond comparison. To this day I haven’t witnessed any skater more vital, more dynamic, more fun to watch, more unpredictable, and more spontaneous in his approach than Jay. There are not enough superlatives to describe him. - Stacy Peralta

Jay adams have inspired so many people to this day, and he will continue on doing that, legends never die. Rest in paradise Jay, you will never be forgotten ♡

"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

"He (Jay Adams) didn’t give a shit about money, and I don’t think that’s why he did it to begin with. He never was interested in any of the material rewards that came from skateboarding. I think that he just basically had a total Fuck You approach to the whole commercialism of skateboarding." - Tony Alva
