SKB, or Skateboarding, has various disciplines like Street, Vert, Pools and the Mega Ramp. What started out as sidewalk surfing in the 70’s with the forefather skateboard groups like the DogTown and Z-Boys, The Daggers, The Alva Team and the list goes on, has now become one of the largest alternative sports in the world with over 50 million skate-boarders worldwide. Skateboarding has been innovating and reinventing itself for over 50 years now and still thrives today in the streets, backyards and stadiums around the world.

From the streets to the empty backyard swimming pools, Skateboarding evolved onto the transitions in the 70’s when the godfather Tony Alva did the first frontside air at the Dog Bowl. From that moment on, it soon evolved into a half pipe built out of wood or steel and became known as Vert Skateboarding.
