@jimmy_plumer Rest in Peace. God Speed. Was an incredible skateboarder. At Lakewood contest 1979 riding the end bowl & pumping backside air at the deepest end, no one else was doing it. He was an early influence to me that the placing in a contest did not define how awesome or how much stoke you can leave on another. The 2 110 photos at Lakewood were some of the first I shot at 15 years old, will always be in my heart & behind the fence. Condolences to friends & family’s, and a huge sorry for not fighting harder to let you enjoy the night you should have gone into the SHOF with the Florida group last year.

We are saddened by the news that legendary Z Boy Jimmy Plummer has passed away.
Several years ago we purchased the mold for his classic 70’s Z Flex Decks directly from him and it can been seen on display when visiting the Museum.
RIP Jimmy. 📷 @glenefriedman
