Video: A Brief Animated History of Skateboarding

  • Posted 42 months Ago

Animator Antonio Vicentini and his Brazilian designer friend David Galasse have created a 5-minute video that gives us a brief history of skateboarding, from its origins in 1950s California, through to being recognised as a crime in the 1990s, to its astronomical growth to a multi-billion dollar industry.

"Since 2000, the buzz in the media and several products have pulled skateboarding into bringing more smiles on people's faces," says the animation's narrator. "Also, with all the money rolling around skateboarding, there are more skateparks, better equipment, and more companies to keep innovating and creating cool shit."
