Words by Dan Levy

A cool zephyr wind calmly blankets the sacred grounds of Dogtown carrying with it the souls of our fallen warriors. It swirls through the hearts of our tribe and adds vigor to the day ahead. We know life doesn’t just hand us barrels and permission pools. Nobody rides for free. We pay for our freedom. Jay showed us that we earn our freedom with perseverance and constantly striving to be better.

It has been said that everyone just wanted a piece of Jay. Seeking absolution riding his surfboard and skateboard, he spent life basking in true freedom. That’s what everyone wanted. Purity. Through 100% dedication to his passion, Jay Boy showed us there is always another wave to take us somewhere new. He had a magical way about him as if he was tapped into the universe in a way that gave him the ability to see greatness in everyone and everything. This is the Jay we knew and loved. This is the Jay we will celebrate.

    Thank you so much for these pictures. I’m just an outsider looking in, but have been so inspired by everything I have seen from the surf/skate culture for most of my life. Wish I had made the trip from Jersey to pay my respects to Jay and everyone there involved in showing the world what freedom is all about.
