Americas Newest Sport 1962 (video)


  1. I realize that this film is listed as being made in '62 on IMDB and everywhere else, but that must be wrong as there clearly is a Ford Mustang parked near the skater girl at 8:42, and we all know that car first appeared in '65. My first board was a Hobie Surf Rider and that must've been around '67.

    1. I'd have to agree with you on that! good eye, good call... you should tell them on IMDB too!


    2. There is some video of Toger Johnson skating with Makaha Team in '65 which reportedly was before he went to Hobie. He also skated in commercial c.69 that leads me to believe this is 65 or probably 66. I've notified IMDB, but it's all guessing who knows if the accept edit.
