R.I.P. Jay Adams! Original Dogtown Z-Boy!

Venice has lost one of its own! Jay Adams, 53, died of a heart attack on Aug. 15 while surfing in Mexico.  He is survived by his wife Tracy, 19-year-old son Seven and 12-year-old daughter Venice.  On Aug. 30th, many came out to pay respect to Dogtown Z-Boy Jay Adams and family at the memorial and paddle out at the Venice Pier.  It was a beautiful ceremony.  View event photo highlights below.  Click here to view all 600+ images by Venice Paparazzi.
