1. A nostalgic journey back to the past
Today, I would like to share an overview of skateboards history for all the hardcore fans out there. It has been a giant step from the big and clunky skateboards changing into today’s lightweight skateboards.
All thanks to the community contribute with its creativity and innovation over the decades. Let’s take a moment and appreciate the skateboarding legacy altogether!
2. Skateboards in the 1940s – 1950s
Alright! Let’s jump back to the past around the late 1940s and early 1950s.
Though we don’t know who actually started skateboarding, yet it started with a group of surfers. Imagine in California, back in those days, these surfers would like something to do while there is no wave to ride.
Then, they come up with a new concept! How about surfing on the flat street?
From that moment, the first model of the skateboard has been born. The skateboard back then consist of a roller skate attached with a wooden box. As for the term, they used to call “sidewalk skating”.
