  • I fell in love with skateboarding when i was 10 years old and my dad got me my first board. Since then, it has been a major part of my life. Skateboarding has always fascinated me... how such a simple concept could provide an entire lifestyle. \n
  • -A skateboard is a short, narrow board with two small wheels fixed to the bottom of each end. (Show parts of a real skateboard to the class)\n-\n\n
  • -the first type of skateboard, which dates back to the early 1900’s, consisted of roller skate wheels attached to a two by four\n-Started becoming popular during the next 50 years\n-the first commercial skateboards, Roller Derby Skateboards, were released in 1959\n-skateboarding first became popular in the surfing crowd\n-used to be called “sidewalk surfing” \n-would ride bare-footed\n\n\n\n
  • Skateboard culture can mean a lot of things. It is a very broad and diverse topic \n-Skateboarders emerge from all different backgrounds\n-the culture of skateboarding is limitless\n-go into more detail\n\n\n\n
  • -Skateboarding has limitless possibilities. It is a form of self expression that can take any form, at any location. \n-There is no coach, you make up your own rules\n-go at your own pace\n-go wherever you want\n-live skateboarding\n-no rules to follow\n-do what makes you happy\n
  • -Mecca for skateboarding\n-Skaters would travel from all over the world to go to Love Park.\n-Home of ESPN’s X-Games in 2001 and 2002\n-In 2002, Mayor John Street passed a law forbidding skateboarding in the park\n-a ticket for skateboarding would be $300\n-Slight renovations were made to the park but it was not made unskateable\n-However, over the years police force has been made seldom there and LOVE park, although dangerous, has remained a place to skate\n\n\n\n\n
  • -After the ban of skateboarding at Love, the city donated a chunk of land under I-95 in FDR park. \n-Everything at FDR was built by skateboarders themselves\n-FDR is a place that local skaters took upon themselves to create. It has turned into one of the most famous skateparks over the years and is well-know nationally.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n
  • Filming is what allows skateboarders to show the world what they’ve been doing. With the use of Youtube, and other websites, skateboarders all over the world can show off their talent. \n-Skate videos are created and sold by companies to promote their team and turn profit\n-Companies are commonly judged based on their videos\n-Team riders are expected to put out footage regularly.\n-Skaters most often get noticed by creating a “sponsor tape” and sending it in to a company\n-if the company thinks that you will have potential, then you could be set up for a sponsorship\n\n\n\n\n\n
  • -skate videos are one of the most important aspects of skateboarding\n-shows what the tricks and locations are at the time\n-companies take a lot of pride in their videos\n-shows the popular tricks and style of the time period\n\n\n
  • -Amateur skateboarding begins at the sponsorship level\n-the first stage of sponsorship is getting “flow” for a company\n-if a company likes your sponsor tape, or you know the right people, then a company will send you, or “flow” you free products\n-Flow riders don’t get paid, but get all their products for free and often in heavy excess.\n-\n\n\n
  • -Once you are on the flow program for a company, you can start to really get noticed\n-Shooting photos (and getting them in magazines), getting footage (and getting a lot of views), doing well in contests, and getting involved in the skate scene are all ways to climb your way up the ladder. \n-lot of competition\n\n
  • \n-as in all sports, to be a professional means to use the sport to make money\n-companies have pros as advertisement, to help them make money. \n-the biggest pros have their products which can be board, trucks, wheels, bearings, shoes, or clothing. \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n
  • -Skateboard magazines greatly influence skateboarding\n-Set the trends in the sport\n-Showcase best skaters and the tricks they’ve been doing\n-provides information on the skate scene\n\n\n\n\n
  • -as skateboarding was dying out in the late 60’s, it was kept alive in Santa Monica, Ca\n-called this area Dogtown\n-Zephyr skate team consisted of skateboard pioneers such as Tony Alva, Stacy Peralta, and Jay Adams\n-changed the direction of skateboarding\n-aggressive, high-speed skating\n\n-the urethane wheel was invented in 1970\n-changed the entire sport\n-skateboard wheels were now way grippier and smoother\n-this caused a boom in the industry as new board, truck, and bearing companies sprang up\n\n
  • -Dogtown was known as a pretty rough area at the time. \n-Stacy Peralta (pg. 56) “we would ride our bikes at 4:00 am to go surfing and had to be careful not to be beat up by roving gangs.”\n-This was a hard area with a lot of crime\n-Z-boys skated aggressively and with punk attitudes \n
  • -Powell Peralta created the first skate video “Bones Brigade”\n-3 main skateboard manufacturers: Powell Peralta, Vision/Sims, and Santa Cruz\n-Shoes from Airwalk, Vans, and Vision became really popular by everyone, not just skaters\n-Vert skating emerges\n-focus shifts to street skating\n
  • \n
  • -street skating is what most people are familiar with\n-handrails, stairs, ledges, manual pads, banks, anything\n-urban terrain\n
  • \n
  • Mazur, Mike. Focus: East coast Skateboarding Culture Magazine: 10. Print.\n\nThis quote sums up skateboard culture very well in my opinion.\n
  • \n
  • \n
  • three ideas:\n-skateboard raffle/game\n-musical skateboards (musical chairs but on skateboard decks, no wheels)\n-design your own skateboard\n

    • 23. Quote• “The idea of just jumping into something without having a clue as to what’s really going on around me isn’t really that new to me. To think about it, in fact, it’s pretty much how I go about doing anything in my life. Too often are people afraid to fail at something, or give the excuse that they are now qualified to do a specific job or task. Instead of taking the chance and maybe having a blast and learning something new, they stick to the same routine which, to me, is sorta depressing. Growing up skateboarding, I believe that not only has it physically been challenging but mentally, too. You stress about the cracks at a new spot, or rougher landing, or worrying about being kicked out from a spot and not getting your trick after multiple tries, and wasted abuse to your body. It almost seems to me that almost any skateboarder is willing to just jump at something without really having a clue if they can possible do it or not. And what does this lead too? Progression and a feeling of accomplishment. Or sometimes, yes, you are defeated. But as the saying goes, what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger. Before you know it, months later you’re back again trying to conquer what once brought you to your knees. This is the skateboarding mentality in full effect. So, next time when someone asks you why you skateboard, not only can you tell them its ‘cause you love it, but you can also say it’s helping you prepare for future endeavors in life. You’ll be more willing to give something a go, maybe not just once either, after your first failed attempt.”
