A SHORT HISTORY ON SKATING AND SAN FRANCISCO

 

We tend to hear a lot about cities like NYC, Southern California, and Philly when it comes down to the history of skateboarding, especially street skating and now seeing how San Francisco and especially it's hills played such pivotal role in the history of skateboarding is definitely enlightening. In the back of our heads we could always remember someone tearing it down a hill, timing traffic lights, or just praying to the gods that the intersection stays clear.  These are scenes that we could remember as a kids or see every so often in a release, but never in this much detail. Legends changed history forever or just remained untouched even till this day when it comes down to bombing hills.

Watch how these groups of then kids like Tommy Guerrero, Sean Young, and Julian Stranger discover spots, change styles, and write down history forever. Narrated by Bryce Kanights. Brought to you by Transworld.
