Otavio Tavares's insight:

Skateboarding was first started in the 1950s, when all across California surfers got the idea of trying to surf the streets. No one really knows who made the first board -- instead, it seems that several people came up with similar ideas at the same time. Several people have claimed to have invented the skateboard first, but nothing can be proved, and skateboarding remains a strange spontaneous creation.

These first skateboarders started with wooden boxes or boards with roller skate wheels slapped on the bottom. Like you might imagine, a lot of people got hurt in skateboarding's early years! It was a sport just being born and discovered, so anything went. The boxes turned into planks, and eventually companies were producing decks of pressed layers of wood -- similar to the skateboard decks of today. During this time, skateboarding was seen as something to do for fun after surfing.

In 1963, skateboarding was at a peak of popularity, and companies like Jack's, Hobie and Makaha started holding skateboarding competitions. At this time, skateboarding was mostly either downhill slalom or freestyle. Torger Johnson, Woody Woodward andDanny Berer were some well known skateboarders at this time, but what they did looked almost completely different from what skateboarding looks like today! Their style of skateboarding, called "freestyle", is more like dancing ballet or ice skating with a skateboard.

Then, in 1965, skateboarding's popularity suddenly crashed. Most people assumed that skateboarding was a fad that had died out, like the hoola hoop. Skateboard companies folded, and people who wanted to skate had to make their own skateboards again from scratch.

But people still skated, even though parts were hard to find and boards were home made. Skaters were using clay wheels for their boards, which was extremely dangerous and hard to control. But then in 1972, Frank Nasworthy invented urethane skateboard wheels, which are similar to what most skaters use today. His company was called Cadillac Wheels, and the invention sparked new interest in skateboarding among surfers and other young people.

In the spring of 1975, skateboarding took an evolutionary boost toward the sport that we see today. In Del Mar, California a slalom and freestyle contest was held at the Ocean Festival. That day, the Zephyr team showed the world what skateboarding could be. They rode their boards like no one had in the public eye, low and smooth, and skateboarding was taken from being a hobby to something serious and exciting. The Zephyr team had many members, but the most famous are Tony Alva, Jay Adams and Stacy Peralta.

The best skateboarding games in the world

Otavio Tavares's insight:

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 and 1.2:


Impossible to speak of skateboarding games without talking about Tony Hawk. This game was not just a fad generation Playstation 1 and Nintendo 64. It was also the biggest influencer of opinion of the children of this generation. And look, I say this from experience.
Remember that since a kid I've loved to skate, but this game was the one who hooked me on the sport. Levels were well balanced, mixing the street with Vertical and pleased everyone.
Many levels showed American streets, with gaps that were crazy about any skate freak out and envy. To be honest until today I dream to find a street so smooth and full of peaks for maneuvering, as well as the game.

Skate 1,2 e 3 :


The manobas are so difficult to accomplish that in real life. The severity of the game is identical to real life. Ie the player it does not fly as high as the players of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater. This is a very positive point.

Another fact that puts the podium at Skate skateboarding games is the fact that its platform is open-world. This means that you can move through the scenario of the game at will. What is really cool for a game of skate. After all it does seem like you are giving a roll through the streets.

Tony Hawk

Otavio Tavares's insight:

Anthony Frank Hawk, better known as Tony Hawk is considered the greatest skater / skater of all time in vertical mode. It is customary to compare him to Pele, Michael Jordan, Kelly Slater, Wayne Gretzky, Roger Federer and Tiger Woods for his genius and mastery in competitions. True king in vert or vertical mode.
Tony holds 12 world championships Vertical three world championships and ten Street Style X Games.
Tony Hawk possessed great skill from a young age, becoming a professional at age 14 (this time necessary to become professional was just entering a professional league unlike the current standards as it requires sponsorship from a skate company to become a professional). He was a pioneer in modern vertical slopes.
He had his own halfpipe made by his father when he lived in his first house with his first wife, Cindy, and their first son, Riley.
Tony Hawk was a member of the legendary team of Powell Peralta Bones Brigade. He also owned his own model of professional footwear produced by Airwalk.
