Jay Adams
Photo by C.R. Stecyk III

"Jay Adams' contribution to skateboarding defies description or category. Jay 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. He's the real thing, an original seed, the original virus that infected all of us.

I believe this photo of Jay is the most stunning and strikingly clear representation, of any photo ever taken, of modern skateboarding."
-Stacy Peralta


"Jay Adams was the most spontaneous skater you ever met"
- Glen E. Friedman

"That's why Jay's so great, because nothing is ever the same before or since. Jay doesn't practice, Jay doesn't re-do it...He doesn't do it twice..he's doesn't do it 3 times..he doesn't even do it 1 time. He's over it before it happens"
- Craig Stecyk III

"He will be in the middle of a maneuver and have the whole thing collapsing on him and somehow at the center of that disaster he will make something else out of it completely which becomes art"
- Skip Engblom
