Surf the sidewalks on a vintage skateboard

While no one truly knows who made the first skateboard, Bill Richards, a Los Angeles surf shop owner, commissioned the Chicago Roller Skate Company to produce the first manufactured skateboards using skate wheels, which were attached to rectangular wooden boards.
