Jin Salamack's skateboarding journey from San Diego to Oregon.

Jin Salamack, a 21 year old student at San Diego State born in Japan and raised in Maui has been skateboarding from the Mexico boarder in San Diego and heading north hoping to get to Oregon by Aug. 24th. Skateboarding from boarder to boarder hugging the coastline, skating as long as his legs will take him each day and sleeping on the beaches. To Jin the saying "Journey On" means to keep the adventure going, keep the feeling alive and see where one foot off ground can lead to. His Instagram @SK8THESTATECA is full of photos from his journey.

                                                 Some photos from Jin's instagram feed.

Jay Adams remembered on Instagram

Here are some of the Instagram posts from the skateboard industry of Jay Adams passing. With the help of social media the news traveled fast and around the world. RIP Jay.


















































  

A lot of fans and even some skateboard companies couldn't tell the difference between Steve Cathey and Jay Adams. The famous Steve Cathey photo from La Costa that was on every Skateboarder Magazine subscription envelope during the 70's was being confused for Jay. This was actually the first Instagram post I saw that morning and was a bit confused when the photo and copy didn't match up.
