The Devil’s Toy – Skateboarding in Montreal, 1966

19 July 2011, 01.31 | Posted in skateboarding | No comments »


“This short 1966 documentary dedicated “to all victims of intolerance” depicts the dawn of skateboarding in Montreal. A new activity frowned upon by police and adults, skateboarding gave youngsters a thrilling sensation of speed and freedom. This film – the first Canadian documentary ever made about the sport – captures the exuberance of boys and girls having the time of their lives in free-wheeling downhill locomotion.” -NFB
