Here's a good one for a wet Monday afternoon in London - a guy called Dave Markey just unearthed a gem that will make you wish you were born 30 years earlier on the other side of the planet:
Skateboarding, surfing, and dirt biking in Santa Monica, CA, captured by a pre-teen David Markey on 8mm film in 1976/ '77. The dawning of the Dogtown era; Road Rider 4's, Bennett Trucks, Logan Earth Ski's, 2 colored Vans. Shot at Bay Street, Kenter Elementary, McKinley Elementary, Harvard Street, and the former vacant lots of Santa Monica. Skaters include Paul Hoffman and Paul Cullen. Props to Jimmy "J.J." Walker.
It's almost too much.
