The street revolution of the late 1980’s is the most important change in skateboarding ever. It was unstoppable and would prove to be as merciless as it was necessary for the survival of skateboarding. Big name professional ramp skaters went from millionaire super stardom to obsolete nothingness overnight. The dominants of the skateboard industry went the same way. Too clumsy to move along with the new times and demands they saw themselves going out of business in an instant, overtaken by new, smart and small companies focusing only on street skaters and the new street skating talents.
The re-claiming of the streets as the natural terrain for skateboarding was truly a revolution of the people with the leaders of it rolling among the common. No longer did skaters need to know someone who owned a ramp or pay to get inside a park, no big pads or helmets were needed either. Skateboarding was back where it once started, where anyone could do it, anyway they liked it, in the streets, and to this day, we have not yet seen the end of its possibilities.
The street revolution and the following reign of street skating was not a passing one. The freedom and low maintenance of street skating has made it the by far most popular way of skating from the 1990’s until today and the easy access of street skating is what makes skateboarding an ever growing phenomenon. Although loads of ramp-oriented parks are built worldwide today, a huge majority of all skateboarders prefer street-oriented terrain and media is still very much focused on the action in the streets.
Since the revolution of street skating, skateboarding has not died, faded or withdrawn like it did multiple times before. Since street, skateboarding has just kept on growing and shows no signs of stopping.
