Just when he was getting back on-track too…
Jay Adams, of the legendary Z-Boys skateboarders, passed away on Friday of what is a suspected heart attack.
Adams was one of the skaters portrayed in the film Lords of Dogtown, which was about skateboarding in Venice, California.
The 53-year-old had gone through two stints in prison, and come out on the other side a changed man who was getting his life together, according to his friend Allen Sarlo.
Sarlo was on the Puerto Escondido, Mexico with Adams, and Adams' wife Tracy.
