The 70's Go Mainstream? The March 2007 issue of Transworld Skateboarding mag had a one-page article on 70's slalom boards. Could it be that people are acknowledging the 70's? Old schoolers are staunch supporters of the wide (10" decks) of the 80's. Perhaps we're seeing this acceptance trend leap to the previous decade.

With the resurgence of companies like Tunnel Skateboards and Bennett Truks, it seems as though sidewalk surfing might actually reemerge. Short narrow boards, narrow trucks and wide wheels - now you're talkin'! Even the newer companies like Dregs and GH Boards are pumping out 6" x 29" decks. Let the old times roll!
