The footbridge was a combination of surfing and skateboarding. It has the same rolling motion and mimics the undulating waves of the ocean.
Internet users could still practice. The famous Bürgersteigpromenade has become a skateboard. Like Hawaii, skating was quickly popular in California with surfers and teens. More than 50 million skateboards were sold in 1963.
The journey of longboards
After citizenship/skateboarding has become popular among America's youth, skateboards have developed over the years and are becoming more and more important for the towers. The first skateboard was designed as a toy for children, but when children grew up, the toy version became very small. Long lengths were often made of a wooden board with old wheeled shoes or metal wheels. It was not very strong, soft and safe. As a result, sports and skateboarding dropped dramatically because people thought it was very dangerous.
But over the years, a small core of skaters was looking for a better and safer way to skateboard and the metal wheels were replaced with improved wheels and trucks. Then, the modern skate and longboard in 1973, also known as the second wave of sports, began when the urethane wheels appeared.
Wheels, wheels, wheels ... these are wheels
These wheels were smoother, safer, stronger, faster and had more grip. It was crazy but in advance ...
The sport has become more versatile and popularity has increased further. Instead of just flat, they also see freestyle, downhill and slalom.
Bahne Cadillac was the first company to manufacture urethane wheels that were suitable for longboards and skates. Then the trucks were designed for longboard only. They call them Kingpin reversed trucks. The most popular were (and still) tracker, Gullwing and Bennett.
Popular Tony ...
The actual explosion occurred when Tony Hawk and other famous consultants gained media attention through tricks and competition. This has revived the popularity of the Longboard.
Has anyone evacuated the pool?
Another style was also swimming pool skating or surfing. Many surfers began practising longboard and skateboarding in the back garden ponds. A drought in California occurred.
Jay Adams, Tony Alva and Bruce Logan have been featured in numerous magazines and have helped shape the sport. These pools were the precursors of modern skate parks. The first skate park was built in Florida. Longboard and skateboarding went downhill.
Longboards and skateboards can be found on campus, citizen hikers, beach walks and major competitions.
The equipment is improved, more durable and safer. Modern CNC machines (computer controlled machines) help push the limits. Ecological materials such as bamboo and composite materials such as vinyl begin to affect the endless change in longboard gear.
