When did skateboarding first start in the UK?

Skateboarding came to UK in the early 1960’s when the first skateboards were imported from California in 1963 by Keith Slocombe and his Surfers Store. In the late 60’s it attracted the attention of people in the cities; mainly in the form of slalom style skateboarding in the south of England, arising from a growth in media about the ‘craze’ which had started in California.
