Skateboarding legend Jay Adams's sudden and unexpected death at the age of fifty-three shocked the world.

Jay Boy is an endearing, intimate look at the gifted Adams and his friends, and includes sweet and revealing thoughts about his past, written in his own hand before he passed away. It is certain to appeal to any fan of skateboarding.
