This is where the skateboarder slams the tail side of the board and moves his front foot towards the nose, creating a lift off of the ground. This move is less than 30 years old which shows how really new this sport is. It was said that skateboarding originated from the ideas of Californian surfers who wished to surf the street. This was in the 1950's or 60's. Nobody knew who invented the skateboards.
