Jimmy 'The Rat' Plumer grew up in the North Florida surftown of Jacksonville Beach and was an avid surfer and skater as a pre-teen in the late 60's. While spending the Summer of '74 with his dad in Santa Monica, Plumer met Jay Adams and Tony Alva while surfing Malibu. They became good friend and their influence catapulted Plumer's skating level beyond anything the East Coast had ever known. Plumer's natural ability, an affinity for spped, and his devil-may-care attitude, made him a perfect fit for the Dogtown Skate Scene. When Jay left Z-Flex in '78, Plumer was the natural choice to lead the cast of characters that would become known as the 2nd Generation Z Boyz.
For the last 35 years, Z-Flex has been home to some of the most iconic skateboard art of all time. More specifically, the original Z-Flex Animal series has been credited as the first graphic based skateboards, paving the way for many of the skateboard series you see today.
To celebrate its anniversary, Z-Flex will once again flew their influence by releasing the highly anticipated 2012 Animal series. The Original team of Jimmy "The Rat" Plumer, George "Gator" Wilson, Jim " The Dog" Davey, Eric "Froggy" Andersen and Marcello "The Boar" Vercelli will be featured alongside Dennis "Polar Bear" Agnew.
