nftyskateboards NFT#018 - "Sidewalk Surfboard"

Skateboarding was created by surfers to practice their sport but it has become much more than that. The culture of the sport has become a way of self-expression and creativity and I love that aspect of it.

By the early 1960s, skateboarding started luring participants from the surfer scene. In 1962 a southern California surf shop, Val Surf, began making its own brand of skateboards and struck a deal with Chicago Roller Skate Company for the wheels. The skateboards began to attract everyday surfers who could use the boards when they weren’t in the water, and thus the term “sidewalk surfer” was coined.

Additionally, skateboarding gained popularity when Larry Stevenson, publisher of Surf Guide, promoted it in his monthly magazine. In 1963, Stevenson made the first professional skateboards using the Makaha brand and organized the first known skateboarding contest. That same year saw an evolution in skateboard design with the use of clay (also known as composite) wheels that replaced treacherous metal ones. Moving ahead, in 1964 surf and sailing entrepreneur Hobart “Hobie” Alter joined forces with Vita-Pakt company to make a line of Hobie skateboards; the Hobie line also sponsored several contests and professional skaters. Later that summer, the musical group Jan and Dean performed “Sidewalk Surfin” on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand, an event which helped further popularize skateboarding with mainstream society.

In 1965, the skateboarding sport peaked as manufacturers tried to keep up with the demand, cranking out an estimated 50 million skateboards between 1963 and 1965. In May, the world’s first skatepark, Surf City in Tucson, Arizona opened to the public. Additional milestones that year include: the first skateboarding magazine, The Quarterly Skateboarder; the first nationally televised skateboard championships on ABC’s Wide World of Sports; female skateboarder Patti McGee featured on the cover of Life magazine; and the first film about skateboarding, Skaterdater, received an Academy Award nomination for best short film. However, by the end of 1965, the high number of skateboard injuries seen in hospital emergency rooms nationwide led to many cities banning skateboarding. Some city officials went further, urging stores not to sell them and parents not to buy them. Skateboarding developed a reputation as a public health hazard. Sales declined and several manufacturers were left with substantial inventories of skateboards that couldn’t be sold.
