Skateboarding as a sport has evolved significantly throughout the years. In the 1970s, the Breeze skate team changed the sport by participating. Young surfers used the sport as a way to obtain speed and thrills. It was also a symbol of defiance against power. Skaters have been booted out of public locations for years. Tony Alva and also the rest of a Cyclone skate team built a name for themselves and paved the road for today’s top skaters like Tony Hawk.
Skateboarding makes its Olympic debut in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. The activity is now an Olympic sport, and many skateboarders were finally getting the credit they deserve for their physical ability.
