Publication History

Due to the boom in popularity of skateboarding in the 1970s, Skate Rider was launched as a source of information and a means of connection for the rapidly growing skateboarding community. Its colorful and striking covers, featuring iconic images of skateboarders in action, became its unique signature. Despite its prevalent success in the skating community, the magazine had a relatively short run due to the decline in popularity of skateboarding in the early 1980s.{{Categories}}
