Surf to Skate - Volume 2 picks up where the first tome left off. In the 70s skateboarding gear made quantum leaps in performance and aesthetics. On the performance side, experimentation ruled the decade. The polyurethane wheel forever obsolesced the clay and metal models of the 60s. Meanwhile, the decks grew larger as manufacturers tried different materials ranging from plywood to fiberglass and composites of the two. On the aesthetic front, skateboarding had become a lifestyle with a fashion of its own. Textile patterns, wild colours and Hawaiian themes all co-mingled, projecting a casual lifestyle.
