    X Games 15: "Love and Guts" Art Show

    Contributed by Kat Hoffman

    Tuesday, July 28, 2009 5:10pm

    Its that time of year again..... ESPN X Games 15 will be held in Los Angeles at the Staples Center and the Home Dept Center, Thursday July 30th to Sunday Aug. 2nd. All the Usual Supects will be there: P-Rod, Sheckler, Bob Burnquist, Danny Way, Dave Mirra, Daniel Dhers, Garrett Reynolds, Mat Rebeaud, Travis Pastrana, Nate Adams and Robbie Maddison, just to name a few. This one is sure to be packed and explosive. Personally I can't wait to see Chaz Ortiz blow them away in street. At only 15..

  • About

    Jay Adams is one of the original Z-Boys and is considered one of the most influential skateboarders of all time.

    Adams is "The world's greatest natural skater", according to fellow Zephyr skateboard team member, and Powell-Peralta Bones Brigade founder Stacy Peralta.

    The Godfather of modern day skateboarding, Craig Stecyk, dubbed Adams "the original 'seed.'" Stecyk also wrote, "Having known Adams over the years I really can't say he's changed much. He remains one of the most spontaneous, unpredictable persons I've ever encountered... Everything you've ever heard about him is probably true, or should be anyway. Mere words could never come close to accurately describing him."

    Adams is featured prominently in the award winning documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys and in the dramatized film account of the Z-Boys origins, Lords of Dogtown. In addition to being an excellent skateboarder, Adams is also an excellent surfer, having an ambidextrous style. In the mid-1970s as a teenager he was not only part of the original Zephyr skateboard team, but also part of the Zephyr surf team as well.

    Adams has had numerous run-ins with the law in his adult life and spent time in prison for, amongst other things, assault and drug-related crimes. During his most recent incarceration, Jay suddenly became outspoken on the topic of the dangers of drug abuse, possibly for the reason that he became Born Again.
