Here’s a vintage California Pro skateboard from the late 80′s with Madrid underground trucks and Kryptonics wheels. The bearings are actually in good shape and the board even rides nice still. Can tell it was stored inside for its life. Was painted over a some point. Cool board for sure. Someone definitely loved it.
Overall fair cosmetic condition. Wheels are about 55mm in diameter and 48mm in width. Baseplates measure 3.25″ x 2.25″.
This listing is for a vintage Nash Gold Line skateboard. XR-2 trucks and Nash wheels. The bottom graphics are still in very nice shape.

A piece of Americana! Made by Sport Fun Inc. An early wooden [plywood] skateboard with metal wheels that was there to witness the entire birth of the industry! Back when scooters, skating, and boarding where all developing and influcing one another… Its just skating then gliding [Skate' N Glide]… Skateboarding was initially marketed to surfers as a cheaper/easier way to practice surfing aka “sidewalk surfing”.. Imagine writing these gnarly, little, metal wheels, down a steep tarred hill in California! 23.25″ L x 5.75″ W. See finger point pics for any cosmetic blemishes. However, before skateboards there were scooters, sometimes known as kick scooters and push scooters. Varied forms of scooters have been traced back to the early 1900s, most of them made from wood, metal, or a combination of the two. Scooters had anywhere from two to four wheels. Some of the wheels were metal and others were similar to the wheels on pedal cars. In the 1940s and 1950s, crate scooters made popular sidewalk vehicles. Most crate scooters were handmade. They were relatively inexpensive and simple for kids to construct by using a milk crate or wooden fruit box and metal roller skate wheels attached to a wooden 2 x 4. Eventually kids started removing the boxes and handlebars and just started riding the board with wheels, reminiscent of the famous skateboard scene in the 1985 film. Back to the Future. Trade sheet, about 1960, from The Stephen and. Diane Olin Toy Catalog Collection, The Strong, Rochester. By the early 1960s, skateboarding started luring participants from the surfer scene.

That same year saw an evolution in skateboard design with the use of clay (also known as composite) wheels that replaced treacherous metal ones. Moving ahead, in 1964 surf and sailing entrepreneur Hobart “Hobie” Alter joined forces with Vita-Pakt company to make a line of Hobie skateboards; the Hobie line also sponsored several contests and professional skaters. Later that summer, the musical group Jan and Dean performed Sidewalk Surfin. On Dick Clark’s. An event which helped further popularize skateboarding with mainstream society. In 1965, the skateboarding sport peaked as manufacturers tried to keep up with the demand, cranking out an estimated 50 million skateboards between 1963 and 1965. In May, the world’s first skatepark, Surf City in Tucson, Arizona opened to the public..
