A few weeks back, I found myself on LIFE Magazine’s online photo archives, searching for vintage surfing photos, but was led to surface-skimmers of an entirely different sort: skateboarders. I was pleasantly surprised to find a number of female skateboarders included in LIFE’s feature, including world champ Patti McGee (pictured above), who was the first female pro-skateboarder and first woman inducted into the Skateboarding Hall of Fame.
If you’re looking to have a little fun this summer, why not use these ’60s skateboarders as inspiration, and pick up a board of your own?

These are great! I have seen old 60s competition videos and rarely saw any women involved in them at all.
I just love these photos! It makes me want to do a photoshoot with my own board sometime. And I agree with Tanya!
