Skateboarding has technically been around since the 1940s, but it didn’t really take off until the 1970s when skateparks were invented. Then, skateboarding competitions were held at these parks and the popularity just grew exponentially. While most people when they think of skateboarding in the 70s think of the innovation of Ty Page, another factor in the scene was that women were starting to get “on board”.
Let’s take the time to remember the beautiful women street athletes of the era, such as Laura Thornhill, Ellen O’Neal, and Kim Cespedes.
