Jay Adams: Skating the “Dogbowl” in Santa Monica California circa 1977 photo by Glenn E. Friedman.
He’s doing a frontside slashback grind here.  Frontside grinds later were more on top of the coping as in Mike Smith’s smith grind, or in a 5-0 or fifty-fifty grinds and Monty Nolder’s Backside Smith Grind. “Slashbacks” were real “aggro” type of grinds often releasing coping from the cement as seen here.  Sparks would fly and nighttime sessions were alive with sparking flares around the lip and probably the Ramones or Kiss blaring from a cassette player.
