Skateboarding was launched in the late 1940s and was initiated by surfers who wanted to extend their season. Caps have been an obvious part of the skateboard culture, and the specific way of wearing the cap has widely varied over the years in this fast-paced subculture.
California experienced severe drought in 1976 and property owners were forced to drain their pools. Skateboarders used this opportunity to create their own mini-sized skate parks. Over the next two years, many concrete skate parks were built in urban environments and the first professional skateboard riders started to attract attention. Unfortunately, however, many of the skate parks have been forced to close due to low usage.
In the 1980s, street skate practitioners transformed stair racks and walls into free of charge skate parks. In the 1990s skateboarding became mainstream and fashion trends reflect the influence of the subculture on the majority of fashion. This was the time when the cap become everyone's head wear.
Skateboarding caps have been worn, and are still worn today, by skateboarders all over the world, from those who have just got their first skateboard to the professionals.
