The Evolution of Skateboarding

While it might seem that Skateboarding is a fairly modern action sport, skateboarding has now been around for quite a while. While the origin of the first skateboard has never been proven, the appearance of skateboards seemed to spontaneously show up on Californian streets in the early 1950s. Just one day a multitude of wooden boards with roller skate wheels slapped on the bottom appeared with the pioneers deciding it was more fun to surf concrete than waves.
