Video of the Day: Skateboarding in the ’70s

Before the X-Games, energy drinks, and the rise of “dude culture,” skateboarding was cool. Effortlessly cool. This collection of skateboarding footage from mid-’70s gives insight into a culture that we’ve always been totally envious of. The clip, a mix of home videos with footage from skate films of the era, is backed by a song that sounds like Neon Indian’s next single. Click through and find some inspiration for your next chillwave music video. Or just because you love cool, old footage of girls in tracksuits doing handstands on skateboards.
