Rest In Peace Jay Adams

Kelly Bellmar and I sometimes talk about how we are all getting up there in age and that we have to prepare ourselves for a lot of bad news. I read on facebook today that Jay Adams passed. I didnt know Jay, but I do know that his skateboarding influenced so much of skateboarding. And that I am lucky to have been around during the era when he and other pioneers created this wonderful activity called skateboarding.

Rest In Peace Shogo Kubo

I am a Asian American skateboarder. Back in the 1970's there were very few role models for Asian American skateboarders. So when I read that Shogo Kubo died today I was surprised, and suddenly reminded as to how much time has passed. Wasn't it yesterday when I would read articles about Shogo in Skateboarder Magazine? In reality it was decades ago during the birth of the skateparks. When I think of Flyaway Helmets I think of Shogo Kubo. And when I think of style I think of him too. Thank you Shogo Kubo for stoking skateboarding.
