The History of Skateboarding

history-of-skateboarding

Skateboarding has had one of the most unique and turbulent histories of any sport (or hobby) in the history of North America. The sport has gone from grass root home-made boards, to being one of the most popular sports in the USA, only to crash into oblivion before resurfacing as a past time for punks and kids up to no good. Despite the changing point of view of popular opinion, the sport has held a core of devotees who kept the sport alive when it seemed all but forgotten.
