Mind the Generation....Gap

I love 70s skateboards and have amassed a small collection of fairly battered Alvas, Benjyboards and a Fibreflex, all completes with various ACS and Tracker trucks and Road Rider and Kryptonic wheels. All of which I lusted after back in the day. But what was attainable, but never was attained, was a Supa Skuda. I've seen em on Ebay fetching stupid prices (for a cacky old low grade skoot plank). Imagine my surprise to see this little beauty for only £8 BIN:-

It was collection only. Would they post? Yes they would and at a very reasonable rate. So deal done and I wait for the parcel to arrive.

What turned up was a very nice example of a Supa Skuda. Its been used but its not battered to death.

Skinny trucks:-

And loose bearing wheels:-

Now I know that I was a lot smaller when I was 11, but this thing is tiny. Here it is next to my current stunt plank (Creature Stu Graham):-

How the hell did we ride them back then?


  1. Bargain buy it now indeed Biffa.
    Have you ridden it yet?

  2. Not ridden it yet Alixx. Bearings are a bit gritty so want to clean them out first. Did stand on it in the kitchen and marvelled at its smallness.
