Skateboarding came from surfing. Way back in the early 1950s-or-so, someone stuck roller skate wheels on a piece of wood because the waves were flat. It was called sidewalk surfing, and it caught on quick. Soon, a guy named Bill Richards realized that there was money to be made and started making skateboards and selling them from a surf shop.

By the 1960s, skateboarding was well and truly becoming a movement. Now, all these years later, it’s global. It’s an industry. The tables have turned a little—in the last few years, aerial surfing has been pulling from skateboarding. In a lot of ways, the student has become the teacher.

Skateparks are in nearly every town you visit. And if things keep on going the way they are, wave parks will be, too. So it only makes sense that someone squashed the two together and made this strange little wave in a bowl, doesn’t it?
