When surfing and skateboarding were one

There was a time when the sport of surfing was the dominant player in what is today known as “action sports.” Skateboarding and snowboarding, for the most part, barely existed.

The transition era has been well documented and I can’t add anything to what’s already been said.

And yet I’m drawn to this single clip of Greg Weaver. We could take away the skateboard and put a longboard (surfboard) under his feet… everything is the same from the ankles up.

Beautiful footage back from the days when surfing and skateboarding were one.

    then tony alva did the frontside air thus placing any cultural relevance that surfing still had in skaters hands. 40 years later and skating is now a dead horse too. (fun is fun tho.)
