So why is a website about Ultimate Frisbee dedicated to a person credited with having a huge role in revolutionizing skateboarding?
To understand the answer to this, you'd have to watch the documentary film, Dog Town and Z-Boys and pay close attention to Jay Adams (and maybe watch some of Lords of Dogtown that gives more insight into this troubled boy.
Jay and I are about the same age (at least we were until his passing a couple of years back) and both of us came from broken homes. While Jay was out at Pacific Ocean Park in the 70s and carving up swimming pools, I was learning how to throw a disc. But the revolution that happened with skateboarding back in the 70s, still hasn't happened to this day.
And of all of the members of the legendary Zephyr Team, I resonated most with Jay. He never was in it for the money, or for winning, he was on a different wavelength, always innovating and pushing the envelope of what he could make his board do.
This site has some of my thoughts about Ultimate and some ideas I have about playing the game that I hope you can find useful.
