Beautiful Photos of Skater Girls from the 1970’s

We are absolutely loving these stylish photos of female shredders from the 1970’s ‘Golden Era’ of skateboarding. Skaters include Laura Thornhill, Kim Cespedes, Ellen O Neal, Patti Mcgee & Vicky Vickers. These girls just ooze cool.

If you were a skater way back when and have any photos, videos or news clippings that you’d like to share with us, then shoot us an e-mail to, we would LOVE to hear from you!
