Legitimization of Street Skating in Tacoma, WA

December 28th, 2006

removing skatestoppers

On Tuesday, July 26 of 2005, Skaters for Public Skateparks removed 187 Skatestoppers from a city park in Tacoma, Washington…legally.

The police arrived, hands on guns, ordering SPS members to drop tools and lay on the ground. They were shown the letter of permission from the city, and they left without another word.

In essence, this modest success spells the beginning of street skating legitimization. Sure, it’s just one park in Tacoma, but SPS members are working on doing the same in other cities.

About Freeskating :

A skating category that lies somewhere between aggressive and recreational skating, Free Skating, also known as urban skating or free riding, includes many tricks such as jumps and slides, but not other tricks such as grinds.

The emphasis of free skating is getting from A-to-B by the fastest possible route, by skating quickly through city streets and negotiating all obstacles. The boots on skates suitable for free skating tend to be more rigid for better leg support, like the aggressive skate, whilst the wheels tend to be bigger than those found on aggressives, and the frames short, like those found on hockey skates.

Popular brands of freeskate include Salomon’s FSK series, the RollerBlade Twister and the MX Seba.

About Tony Alva :

Tony Alva (born 1957, in Santa Monica, California, United States) is one of the original Z-Boys and is considered to be one of the most influential skateboarders of all time.

The level of aggression with which Alva skated was in stark contrast to the traditional style of the era which was still based around tricks formulated in the 1960s . Alva and the other Z-Boys were among the first to bring skating empty pools into the mainstream. In these early days, it was noted that Alva was hitting the lip so hard that he was actually taking off, hence Alva is responsible for the first recorded aerial, a frontside air, although Alva himself claimed that George Orton was the first to perform aerials (Skateboarder magazine, July, 1978).

In 1977, at age nineteen, Alva shunned the major skate companies to form his own skateboard company, Alva Skates. The same year he was voted ‘skateboarder of the year’ in Skateboarder Magazine’s readers’ poll and he set the Guiness World Record for barrel jumping.

Alva is featured in the documentary on Venice Beach skate culture Dogtown and Z-Boys which was fictionalized into the 2005 feature film Lords of Dogtown and he also starred in ‘Skateboard the Movie’ in 1978.
