The ghost of Barry Zaritsky in Skateboard Sense

Skate Safe

Hold on to your mustaches, it’s a skateboard safety film from the 70’s. There have been a couple of educational films made over the years that deal with the subject of skateboard safety. I’ve seen bits and pieces of some before, but the full versions have always eluded me. Thanks to the folks at I-Mockery, not only can I watch it, but I don’t even have to go through the trouble of making fun of it.

Actually, this kid just appears to have narcolepsy, because that’s the only explanation I can come up with for his randomly falling backwards like that. But who knows… maybe you have narcolepsy too and don’t know it! Are you really willing to take that chance!?

The 70’s rule. You can soak up the bad fashions, groovy soundtrack and stylin’ moves after the jump.

Somewhere there is a black and white skateboard safety film out there. Until we find it, Sid Davis productions presents Skateboard Sense. Thanks to Don for the tip off.

Don’t forget to check out the commentary over at I-Mockery.

    “It really isn’t that much fun to fall down and get hurt all the time, and everyone will hate you.”


    That is awesome. The 70’s rule!

  3. Anybody know where this is? Just curious.
