It was a decade defined by rebellion and progression, as the punk rock movement of the 80’s swept over California. Skateboarding’s popularity eventually led to new tricks in the water, surfers influenced by street skating and vice versa. There were two Hall-of-Famers that saw it all, and were smack dab in the thick of it.
