Skateboarding has rich history of innovation and is full of intriguing stories. Many of these stories are documented.
The first type of skateboards were scooter-like contraptions that date back to the early 1900's. They featured roller skate wheels attached to a two by four. Tens of thousands of rollerskates were dismantled and joyfully hammered on to planks of wood.
In the 1950's modifications were made to the trucks and kids started to maneuver more easily. Towards the late 1950's, surfing became increasingly popular and people began to tie surfing together with cruising on a board.
By the time the 1960's rolled around, skateboarding had gained an impressive following. However, when Larry Stevenson and his Makaha company promoted the product, designs of professional boards peaked performance, enabling higher function and execution of maneuvers.
Skateboarding was first started in the 1950s, when all across California, surfers got the idea of trying to surf the streets. No one really knows who made the first board because many people came up with the idea at the same time. A few people have claimed to have invented the skateboard first, but no one knows for sure who was first.
The first skateboarders started with a wooden board that had roller skate wheels slapped on the bottom.
Like you might imagine, a lot of people got hurt in skateboarding's early years! It was a sport just being born and discovered, so anything went.
Later on, the companies started making skateboards to sell. At that time skateboarding was seen as something to do for fun after surfing.
