LIFE IN THE 1970s: Skateboarding And Hanging Out In Sunny California – Collision on the Ramp, Redondo Beach Pier (1975) [Image: Hugh Holland / mbart.com]
There is a photo gallery kicking around at BI for a bit now, a sun tinged remembrance, it seems, of California in the 70s… mostly children, loose and free, in beach and coastal communities, most of them having a ball with skateboards…
It does have a sweetness to it, an Endless Summer nostalgia. I never knew why the disdain, even hatred, for “skateboarders”… what it was all about… but people sure indulged in it.
What is wrong about children filling their time, having fun?
