Here is a collection of classic skateboarding photos from the 1960s for LIFE magazine by Bill Eppridge. In contrast to the beach blonde hot doggers on the west coast, it’s cool to see the same sorts of antics in these shots of New York City kids during the same period when skateboarding first emerged as a fun-loving street activity.
