Photographs From California's Golden Age Of Skateboarding

As a kid skating meant grinding curbs, jumping stairs and hanging out in parking lots behind grocery stores looking for that perfect street session.

But way before street skating and technical tricks became all the rage sidewalk surfers rolled around in style on their big wheeled cruisers, and discovered that droughts lead to empty pools, and empty pools are the perfect place for a skate sessions.

Photographer Hugh Holland was on the scene in the late 1970s capturing the meteoric rise of skateboarding, and Hugh's street photography style and knack for catching skaters at just the right moment have influenced skate photography ever since.

His wonderfully nostalgiac photos can be found in the book Locals Only: California Skateboarding 1975-1978, featuring images from Hugh's photographic journey up and down the Golden State that mostly took part in Los Angeles.
