Lost in the Skateboard Supermarket

I added 3 new ads from the July 1977 issue of Wild World of Skateboarding, including some Lan lovelies on a sailboat, dog paw themed gloves from KIP, and one from Torque skateboards hyping a new downhill speed record and the advent of the first Skateboard Supermarket. With these additions, I have cracked the 300 threshold in the Vintage Skateboard Mag Gallery.

Wild World of Skateboarding advertisements from 1977

I started adding some scans from a new addition to the Vintage Skateboard Mag Ad Gallery, the July 1977 issue of Wild World of Skateboarding. This first batch includes ads for novelty, foot-shaped skateboards, a generic company called Formula, Brewer Trucks, and Russ Howell Bowlriders with Power Paw.

High Times Guide to Un-Olympic Sports

The July 1996 edition of High Times features the pot smoker’s dude to un-Olympic sports, with New York City’s Ryan Hickey getting “high” air on the cover. I do not own this issue, so I don’t know what they had to say about skateboarding. Now that skateboarding is going to be an olympic sport, will they print a retraction?

Safety Freebies

These 2 safety-themed activity books were given out as part of a sack of goodies during a park district organized neighborhood bicycle riding event. The only activity these things experienced was a brief stop in the scanner before being tossed in the recycling bin. My spidey sense warned me that there was skateboarding content about to go undocumented. If a tree falls in a forest to make a book that nobody reads, can anyone hear it?

Skate Boarding Coloring Book

This is the Skate Boarding Coloring Book illustrated by Magnus Fredriksen and published in 2011 by Dokument Press in Sweden. Note that the word “skateboarding” is broken into two words by the publisher. Of the 60 illustrations, a few of them come from recognizable source material.

– Thanks to Matthijs for the pics.

Skate or Die or Shove-it!

Skate or Die…. or is it Shove-it? I can’t believe they trademarked Shove-it™.  The image used for this Halloween costume is just a serving suggestion, as the skateboard and kneepads are not included.

– Thanks to Josh Baker for the photo.
