Skateboard Adverts February 1990There are some real solid names in here: Backyard, Essjays, Round Ocean and so on.
The Angel Lights Planetary Skatepark (the famous Glasgow skatepark in a Church) were advertising at this point too. Other skateboard shops include Wheels Unlimited in Weymouth, Transition in Grimsby and Subway Skateboards in Hammersmith.
Somebody called NSW Mail Order was offering clearance decks from Vision, Santa Cruz and SMA from £30.95 and Matchrite were still trying to sell jokes by mail order.
This is a snapshot of a different era, with skateboarding just passing another peak in popularity: lots of small shops, but no High Street chains yet.
