Skater Dater (1965)

written by Mike July 15, 2015

There comes a times in every boy and girl’s life when attraction to the same and/or opposite sex overcomes passion for hobbies.  The first film ever produced about skateboarding, Skaterdater (1965), tells a story with no dialogue.

A group of boy skaters are suddenly at a point when one of the boys sees a young girl, and becomes interested in her. This causes a rift with the other boys, who challenges him to a skating duel that goes down a hilly street.

The young boy loses; however, he gets the girl, and shortly, a few other girls are seen and become interested in the boys, too. The skateboarders were members of the neighborhood Imperial Skateboard Club from Torrance, California.  Most of the action shots in Skaterdater were taken in Torrance, Redondo Beach, and Palos Verdes Estates. The final shot was Averill Park in San Pedro.

Do your hormones affect your skateboarding?
