By the 1970s, women were a big part of the California skate scene and skated alongside men in crews such as the Z-Boys. The fact that these Z-Girls got less money, sponsorships, and media coverage clearly didn’t stop them from shredding!
So in case you had forgotten how cool girls skateboarding are, here’s a few photos from the golden age of skateboarding to remind you.
Many of these were taken by the great skateboard and surfing photographer Warren Bolster. For more 70s skate photos, check out CalStreets.
