Thomas Wlesh filed the first patent in 1958, but did not invent the skateboard. No one knows WHO actually invented it, but one thing did happen in the surf town of Coronado California, in 1957.

A surfer named John Pickens attached a small piece of quarter round to the rear edge of his steel wheel board. This gave the rider more control, and we were all able to do wheelies, jump curbs, and spinning 360's...

It was then that a sport was born, and change was inevitable with all comers...
