40 Skating Videos

Here’s a playlist of 40 pretty random skating (as in sidewalk surfing) videos on YouTube. I never searched systematically. Obviously I find 60s and longboard films the most interesting, you don’t have to turn down the sound as much as with some of the hectic stuff.

1970s Skateboard Movie with Cool Music

Skateboard Sense is a safety film. The skating is stylish bankriding and nose wheelies and it’s just a great window into a time before skating was becoming more radical. So the action here could be from the sixties with a little shorter hair and clay wheels. Amazingly the music selection fits the skating style perfectly, the movie even starts with a nifty cool surf-instrumental that I didn’t know before. It’s a very competendly crafted tune. The other music is blues rock and slapstick/silent-movies oldtime music. A Sid Davis Production.
