Jay Adams got together with Paul Schmitt to shape and design his next pro model for Z-flex skateboards. Sad to say Jay never got to ride this board but a few of his friends got together for a session.
On Saturday August 30th 2014 skaters, surfers and fans of Jay Adams gathered in Venice Beach, CA for a celebration of his life.
