The evolution of the skateboard is a very interesting process to follow. Starting in the 1940s, roller skate wheels were added to boards to create the first skateboards. This phenomenon passed into California as many surfers were searching for a hobby to do when the waves were calm. Although this way of skateboarding existed, it was very bumpy and uncomfortable. It wasn’t until the 1970s when urethane wheels were invented.
Urethane wheels meant concrete was now more easily accessible. More companies began manufacturing boards out of different materials. More skate parks began to take shape. As skateboarding became more popular, people start attempting more tricks. By the 1990s, ESPN’s Extreme Games help launch skating into a popular frenzy and worldwide phenomenon.
As the years progressed, we’ve seen highly significant figures use them. From Marty McFly in Back to the Future to legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk, the skateboard has gone from a piece of wood with roller skate wheels to a larger than life hobby.
Fast forward to the present, technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace. Now, not only is skateboarding considered a fun hobby, they are relied on for transportation. In the forefront, revolutionizing the general public’s perception of the skateboard is Evolve Skateboards.
