Skate1

Back in the days when there were no iPhones, computer games or Guitar Hero, kids went outside to play. In sunny California during the 1970s, the thing to do as a kid was to skateboard.  And do it well. Really well.

Photographer Hugh Holland documented the ‘ballet on concrete’, to created a fabulous book which he has just released entitled Locals Only: California Skateboarding 1975-1978.

Here are some of our favorite images from the book.
