Adam is one of my closest friends and one of the few people I've known since I started blading 20 years ago. Him and brother used to destroy the underground NYC scene in the 90s until they both went on hiatus for a few years. This was a few years after Adam's comeback in 2010 and he was proving that he didn't get left behind.
The first time I skated with Adam after his return to blading was about 2007 when we skated the infamous Brooklyn Banks and he was doing mach 10 ally-oop fishbrains to forward on the drop rail flawlessly, I would even say possibly the best I've ever seen. You can see what I mean in this clip:

A few years later, were here in Coney Island where I was able to photograph one of his Ally-Oop Fishbrains. This rail has a boardwalk approach up until no more than a foot before the cement and rail begin, so it's super sketchy since it's easy to get stuck in a crack and eat the rail or do a running man down the stairs. Someone Adam didn't have a problem skating like he always does and he was able to lace this textbook Ally-Oop Fishbrain.
