Throwback: The Skateboard Book from 1978

Author and photographer Ben Davidson gives you a taste of what skateboarding was all about back then, including tips on "the roots", safety, "the art", freestyle tricks, street vs. park skating, board maintenance, and how to be a competitive skateboarder. Eat your heart out Tony Hawk.
