Pool riding pioneers...


Fuel TV is awesome. They play some random stuff on there and often times it is whacky but my DVR intuition scored a gem in "Downhill Motion", a short film about 1970's skateboarding. Nine minutes in, I was overjoyed to discover this short segment...

The second bike to roll-in is a Dan Gurney Eagle with Motomags. One of my "holy grail" bikes that I would like to add to my super Nerd collection. Sick!

Isn't that crazy Scott? At the time they likely never knew that they were pioneering something so simple and how far others would take it. Yet, they sought the same feeling, to ride something new in a different way, to get that feeling that riding gives you, just as we do today and for others to do in the future. Cool vid for sure....
