    Keep watching if you want to be reminded of G&S Bowlrider decks, Gullwing trucks and Red Kryptonic wheels.

    In 1977 the skateboard craze had hit Wales. Professional Welsh skateboarder Paul Roberts was showing off his skills in the new shop ‘Skate City’ in Cardiff and at the Dutch Barn of Rhumney High School.
