Baby Boomers Vintage Skateboarding, Vintage Rolerskating and Vintage Surfing


Post by Sharon 

The 1950s, 1960s and 1970s personified skateboarding, rollerskating and surfing culture. I admit to being a very avid skateboarder and freestyle rollerskating, spending a few hours a day on both! I wanted to be a surfer, but I was on the quiet Chesapeake, so I daydreamed of growing up, moving to LA and surfing like Gidget. There was a whole music, lifestyle, and fun culture built around these things - from Beach Boys and Dick Dale surfing attitude to roller disco skating and half-pipe-loving skateboarders. 
Let's relive some of the fun and find ways to recapture it, even if we aren't willing to get on a board in our middle years -
