“Rollerbladers often reminisce about their favorite skaters from back in the day with a tinge of disappointment in their voices, wondering what happened to their childhood heroes, and then trade stories about their possible whereabouts. It is how legends are born. They stop seeing their favorite skater in videos and believe that they quit, abandoned, or turned their back on skating, which is often far from the truth. In all of my travels and inebriated late night conversations about the old school with bladers from Greensboro, N.C. to Prague, Czech Republic, one name always seems to come up. Jay Dick. The conversations always seemed to end with “Jay Dick, what the fuck happened to that guy?” followed by a few seconds of silence. Jay Dick’s skating encapsulates a period of time. Confidently skating at big kink rails and unitying them with ease in Majestic 12s and a Hardline shirt with baggy pants, Jay was the epitome of ’90s blading cool. He put out some dope sections then seemed to disappear like the J.D. Salinger of rollerblading. As I have found to be the case with a lot of old skaters, blading never really left Jay’s mind.” — Ben Rogers in Lookback #14

Hardline, humility and happiness. Nobody’s perfect and I’m not going to waste my time trying to be. With so much to be thankful for, I enjoy finding ways to give back whenever practical and possible. — Jay Dick
