Descanse en paz Jay Adams

"The skateboarder Jay Adams, one of the Z Boyz, Californian
group that revolutionized skateboarding in the 70s, died on
Thursday, August 14, aged 53. He suffered a heart attack.
Adams leaves a wife and two children. One of the most famous
phrases Jayboy was, "You do not stop skating because it gets
old. because you get old for skateboarding."

In 2012 he was honored by the IASC, International Association
of Skateboard Companies, and entered the Hall of Fame Skate.

In June of that year, another member of the Z Boyz suffered a
heart attack. The Japanese Shogo Kubo died at age 55 in Hawaii
while surfing stand up paddle.

Through social networks, friends, media and fans pay homage to
skateboarding. Pedro Barros posted on his Facebook page: "Rest
in Peace - Jay Adams - One of the biggest names in skateboard
The original Z Boys My idol !!!! Thanks so did the skateboard. died
leaving behind what skateboarding is today."
