A quick overview of the exhibition from the stairway next to the entrance
In the early days - the first articles about skateboarding appeared in surf magazines
1964 - the first ever published skateboard magazine!
It lasted only for a year and just four copies...
We had a copy of the first "quarterly Skateboarder" on display - so you could travel back in time and
study the past!
Mid 70ies the next skateboard wave is getting higher and
1975 - SkateBoarder magazine was back! - Editorial topic "The urethane wheel"
Wild wild magazines! The premiere issue of Wild World of skateboarding in 1976
Christian Seewald - germany's famous freestyle pro in the 80ies - and proud collector of all issues of SkateBoarder!
The 70ies in germany
The first skateboard magazine in germany was released in 1977.
The Bravo was (and still is) a famous youth magazine. They had a skateboard cover story in 1978
Skateboarding in the GDR! The first and only skateboard article... (and the first skateboard produced in the GDR
- with a stopper at the front of the board ) for sure a nice way to stop a skateboard. Maybe if you were pushing the
brake hard enough you could fly over the Berlin wall?
The "practic" magazine was published in East- Germany in 1987
Skate Zines! The famous 1985 "Death Zone" by Claus Grabke and the "Jolly Jumper" from Matthew Bauer
The man of the first "Bullet Zine" cover! Michael Wehrmeyer...
