Jay Adams is a professional skateboarder best known for his association with the legendary southern California skateboarding group The Z-Boys with a net worth of $1 million. His net worth isn't the best indication of the contributions he has made to the world of skateboarding, which is thought by many analysts to be immeasurable. Jay Adams is known as one of the most influential skateboarders in the history of the sport. Fellow Z-Boy and filmmaker Stacy Peralta had this to say about Adams' impact on the sport: " [Adams] may not be 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." As if that weren't enough of an endorsement, Craig Stecyk called Jay Adams "the original seed," referring to the incalculable contributions to the world of skateboarding that Adams has made. He originated dozens (if not more) or skate tricks and techniques, and it's nearly impossible to find a skateboarder out there who hasn't been influenced by him in one way or another. Adams' life has been plagued by legal troubles and controversy, including a short prison sentence for assault (after having been charged with murder) following the death of a man Adams was said to have instigated an attack on.
Jay Adams (born February 3, 1961) is an American skateboarder most prominently known as one of the original members of Z-Boys skateboarding team. He is considered one of the most influential skateboarders of all time.
He was born in Venice, California. As a teenager in 1975, he was a member of the original Zephyr skateboard team and of the Zephyr surf team along with Tony Alva and Stacy Peralta.
According to Bones Brigade founder Stacy Peralta, Adams "may not be 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."Craig Stecyk dubbed Adams "the original seed."
Adams is featured prominently in the award winning documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys and in the 2005 dramatized film account of the Z-Boys origins, Lords of Dogtown. In the movie, he was played by Emile Hirsch, who was praised by critics for his portrayal of the original Z-Boy.
Adams has been in and out of prisons as he struggled with drug addiction. He was charged with murder, and convicted of assault, following a gay bashing that he instigated in Los Angeles. He served two-and-a-half years of a four year sentence in the Federal Correctional Institution in Sheridan, Oregon, after being caught on a wiretap acting as a go-between for a buyer and seller of crystal methamphetamine. He was released to a halfway house on July 8, 2008 for the remainder of his sentence.
He was married to Alisha Adams, with whom he has a daughter, Venice. He also has a son Seven, from Samantha Baglioni. He was recently remarried in Honolulu to Tracy Adams.
