Legendary to see an archived chronicle of street skating. This, combined with Evan Hay's commentary review of Vinnie Bahn Dr. Bahn, has made for a great week of content

Hmm, these don't load for me. Just some bouncing red lines.

Try going back on your browser and then go back in again. Then it should load.

1994, the year of khaki pants, stone washed jeans, and big flips over trash cans, tables, and blocks.

Wow. I never realized how saturated 1994 is with switch mongo pushes.
Especially when both Eastern Exposure 2 and Sub Zero Real Life aren't included.
The Warm Up Zone. Let's watch some skateboarding videos.

first, to GMann, this is a truly noble endeavor, and respect for taking it on.

i haven't had a chance to look yet, but You's comment here, has me wondering if inevitably a lot of "street skateboarding history" is being overlooked, because for some of us "street skaters," Frankie Hill was a bit down the line historically.

not sure how you're determining a starting point for this history, but if the ollie is a criterion for mapping the earliest points of street skating, Vision's NSA videos at Oceanside were formative for some of us--dare i say--first generation street skaters. specifically Mark Gonzales' parts--in the first one, him ollieing to axle stall on the seat of that picnic table at the end of his run, was a serious historical event in street skating:

Man I am totally with you Deputy. However the hard part is reconstructing the dates for each important moment.
I originally wanted to start with 1988, but Thrasher magazine is so focused on Vert in 1988 that it is hard to get any precise dates for what was going on.

From my notes for 1988 all I have is:

"October 1988 - Public Domain is released and Jason lee is on SMA Rocco division."

Even the first half of 1989 was hard to do, really it is only because of Mike Vallely's "Street Plant" website and youtube channel that I was able to get many dates by month for early 1989 because Thrasher is still mainly focused on the vert scene.

But yes 1988 and 1987 could be added later if the research is available, and if anyone can contribute any research on a month by month basis, I'd be happy to incorporate it.

Good news Deputy Wendell

After further research, I have found plenty of dates for 1988. So I am going to now work on 1988 as the next video. I was unable to find a date for that 1988 Ohio Skateout contest you posted (surprisingly it was not reported in Thrasher) so unfortunately that will not be included, unless someone else knows the date....

But on the plus side, I have found footage and precise monthly dates for at least 3 other cool street contests in 1988: 1) Munster, 2) Savanna Slamma II, and 3) the first SF Civic Center Contest (in 88' it was called "Disco in Frisco" but in later years it was called the "Back to the City" contest) So there will be plenty of contest footage.

For your viewing pleasure, here is 1987:

https://www.bitchute.com/video/6cYkEs8RyQnE




The height of the jump ramp era. The summer of 1987 also saw the first frontside boardslides down handrails by two skaters: Julian Stranger in San Francisco, that would end up in the 1988 video release "Sick Boys" and Mark Gonzalez in the August Savanna Slamma competition. A few months later Gonz films another one in the streets of New York City.

1988

1988 sees the rise of young street skaters, mainly amateurs, trying out many of the tricks invented by freestyle skater Rodney Mullen on street boards for the first time. Tricks like 360 flip (by Steve Ortega), double kickflip (by Ron Allen), kickflip manual (by Ray Barbee), kickflip 50-50 (by both Frankie Hill and Ray Barbee), and kickflips over gaps and stairs (by Frankie Hill) are filmed for the first time.
Meanwhile the competition circuit is still being dominated by the older established pros from the launch ramp era, such as Christian Hosoi and the Bones Brigade.
