In the 1970s and early 1980s, there were no skateboard videos. There were only skateboard magazines, like Thrasher and Transworld. Companies paid for advertising in these magazines. Subscribers paid for the magazine to get shipped to their houses. The magazines didn’t come to you for free. Yet skateboarding, besides the cost of buying the board, was free.
