Skateboarding, music and subculture photographer Glen E. Friedman shares some of his favorite shots of pioneering skateboarder Jay Adams, who died Friday in Mexico.

Here, Adams does a "Bert" on an embankment in 1976 in the schoolyard at Kenter Canyon Elementary in Brentwood, California. Friend and surfing partner, Solo Scott, who was with Adams when he passed away, looks on in the background.
