2The Skateboard Revolution.

American society underwent a skateboarding revolution in the 1970s when a few bored surfers in the early 1950s grew tired of having nothing to do when the waves were flat, they thought up the ‘skateboard.’ Years later, the recreational activity became one of America’s favorite activities- especially amongst the youth of California.

This photo, taken in 1975 during the peak of the craze, was captured by the photographer Hugh Holland, who admitted he was in the right place at the right time when a beach kid skated past two bikini-clad women. The capturing of a moment within an age of change, the image is highly lauded even today.
