Z-Flex is back in Venice searching for the next Z-boy. Birthed in Venice Beach, Z-Flex Skateboards along with Jay Adams, ‘the original seed of skateboarding’, are organizing the inaugural Jay Boy Classic, a skateboarding competition for under 21 year old unsponsored skateboarders at the Venice Skatepark in Venice Beach, California on April 12, 2014.
As a platform for unsponsored skaters to have their chance to get noticed, Z-Flex is rewarding the winner of the contest with a one-year flow sponsorship. Along with the Grand Prize of a one-year flow sponsorship, prize packs will be given to places 1-10 full of product from Z-Flex as well as the supporting event sponsors: Hurley, Osiris, Tracker Trucks, Venice Originals, Ollo Clip and Vita Coco.
40 spots will be open on the day for skaters to register for the event. In addition to the 40 spots, Z-Flex is teaming up with Hella Clips to offer 5 Golden Tickets of pre-registration into the event.
Venice Skatepark is in the heart of Venice and has always been an asset to the Venice community. Located along the Venice boardwalk, in Southern California’s second must popular tourist destination, the event will be an attraction for everyone in the area- with grandstands, a DJ and skaters from all over looking to get their spot on the Z-Flex flowgram.

“Who the fuck do you think you are Eddie Aikau” – Chris Brown
While shooting surf photos with Jack English at Surf Beach one local came up to Chris asking if he had brought any photographers with him – Jack not knowing he was suppose to be hiding out was caught and while the guy (who was wearing a Eddie Aikau t-shirt) got into Browny’s face – Browny called him out.
For those of you who don’t know who Chris “Browny” Brown is – put it this way they guy’s on the right are Taylor Knox and Shane Dorian
Surf photos of Geoff Brack have been uploaded to his page.
Two facts about Geoff Brack – while living at the Billabong house in San Clemente was evicted when he punched holes in the walls then went to jail for biting a guy’s finger off.

“It’s pretty sad to lose this way. I wanted to make that heat, but what Adriano did I think no one has ever done to me in my whole surfing career. On purpose, he took on me, which is so lame. I wasn’t on that wave he would have made that take off easily.
From him it’s the worst sportsmanship that you could get, but I don’t expect anything less from him. Everybody knows that. It sucks. I learned that next time in a heat with him I am going to paddle on him, elbow him… If it takes all this to win the heat, it’s pretty bad. He had to freakin’ take off on me…” – Jeremy Flores
“We had a lot of rivalries. We are good friends. We started together in Junior events, and we had many heats together. I saw the potential he had, and when I saw his board under my feet I was like ‘oh’. There’s something wrong here. Judges saw that and gave him an interference.” – Adriano de Souza
