Skating and Roller Skating became a huge hit around the world in the late seventies and the beginning of the eighties, and California was the place that saw them grow and succeed. The streets of Los Ángeles, where the sun is always on top, were full of young skaters in bikinis, bathing suits and tank tops, showing off their bodies, their skills and their grace. Venice Beach became the World’s Skating Capital, and its famous boardwalk help to build that legend. We gathered fifty photos that are truly amazing and that show how the skating world was back then, and I’m sure you will want to buy some roller skates and travel to sunny California.
Venice Beach is one of the most vibrant areas of Los Angeles. It is full of young artists, musicians, bohemians and those who are in constant search of freedom and happiness.
