Skateboarding

SkateboardingSkateboarding is an activity that has seen more evolution in its history than perhaps any other sport. First bursting onto the scene in California in the 1950s as a new way to "surf on land", skateboards have gone through countless stages since the original prototype--a simple wooden plank with two roller skate trucks nailed to the bottom.

Often referred to as "sidewalk surfing", skateboarders used their basic wooden planks and wheels on land to emulate the feel of riding the waves. It wasn't until the rest of the country caught onto this new fad that it just blew up and became what we now see it as today--a highly competitive sport consisting of ridiculous stunts, tricks, and maneuvers using skateboards with perfect dimensions and intricate artwork. 1940s The first prototype of the modern skateboard was created. It was called the "Skeeter Skate", and it was made from aluminum and was ridden on four pedal-car style wheels. The surface of the Skeeter Skate was about 4 3/8 inches wide and 15 3/4 inches long. You could ride it with a handle attached or without one. Before the Skeeter Skate, a few other things came out resembling skateboards, but they never had steering; you could only go straight on them. This was the first skateboard-type device with axles that you could steer, known as "trucks". [read the rest]
