Last night the first class of the Skateboarding Hall Of Fame was inducted in a ceremony held at Vans Skatepark in Orange, California. The first group of inductees was voted on by a large field of skateboarding media, industry leaders, and IASC members, and consisted of skaters from the first four decades of skateboarding history. A short video and photo montage was shown before each skater was brought up on stage. The inductees were: from the 1960's, Bruce Logan; from the 70's, Tony Alva; the 80's, Tony Hawk, and from the 1990's, Danny Way.
The event was pure skateboarding style, not too fancy, and was held in the middle of the street course in the park, with a Combi-bowl session prior, random skating throughout the evening, and lots of cool items to bid on in the silent auction, with all proceeds going to IASC and the Hall of Fame, which has now been given a permanent location at Todd Huber's Skateboarding Museum at Skate Lab in Simi Valley, California.
