This year the event will honor the life of skateboarding legend Jay Adams. Adams was a Venice local from the 1970’s who not only had an unprecedented influence on today’s skateboarding culture but also on youth culture as a whole.

“Z-Flex is stoked to hold an event to celebrate his life.” said an event organizer.

From 10am there will be a grass roots bowl jam for up to 40 un-sponsored local skateboarders to compete for over $3000 in product prizes followed by a Master Bowl Jam that allows Adams peers to participate in the day.  The Invitational Cash Grab is scheduled to kick of approximately at 3:30pm.
