Dogtown Memories

As a young lad in the 7o’s I was very much influenced by the Dogtown movement back then. Jay Adams, Stacy Peralta, Tony Alva and Shogo Kubu were the guys we wanted to be like. Their skating was all over the skate mags and the boards were used were influenced by them.

The loss of 2 of these skateboarding greats in 2014 was a shock to many of us, especially those of us who skated in the 70’s. They were still young, enjoying what they loved surfing and skating.

Never has the phrase “Skate to you Die” been more correct!
