Throwback: The Skateboard Book from 1978

1 of 34



Here's a little blast from the past when skateboarding reached a level of popularity high enough for a publisher to print a book dedicated to the topic. 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.
