The skateboard gained popularity particularly during the 1990s – just think of the numerous music videos from back then. However, the predecessor of the skateboard is the longboard. It was invented by surfers, who wanted to live out their passion on the street as well and therefore attached wheels to their surfboards. Over the past few years, the longboard has become increasingly popular – especially since many YouTubers have published captivating videos. But the smooth skating on a longboard also fascinates older generations.
