My, how skateboard fashion has changed. Perhaps the skin tight, yet time saving, apparel is the reason skateboarding is now illegal in Capitola. However, the spandex suits could easily be brought back with some of the clever designs that are available these days. For instance, who wouldn’t love to see spandex tuxedo riders? Wouldn’t a team of pure gold boarders lend for an awesome shot racing down a hill in the sunlight? In any case, this video is a nice glimpse into the past.
