Z-FLEX - EPISODE 2: THE ORIGINAL

The final part of the Z-Flex documentary

Kent Sherwood (Jay Adams' step-dad) was the man behind the manufacturing of the Zephyr Fiberglass skateboard. In 1976, Jay Adams and Kent split from the Zephyr team and started the short lived E-Z Rider brand that then became Z-Flex Skateboards that is still around today. With his refined skill in fiberglassing they launched the first Z-Flex skateboards in 1976 from his workshop in Venice. Coming out initially with three different shapes, with the inclusion of the Jimmy Plumer later, Z-Flex Skateboards was one of the premier skateboard brands of that era. 

Now generations strong, Z-Flex remembers its rich history and continues its path of determination and dedication to skateboarding through a limited release of iconic Z-Flex Vintage Premium (ZVP) products.
