Skateboarding contest in North County San Diego - Summer of 1978

In the summer of 1978, the Oceanside National Pro Am in North County San Diego featured professional and amateur skateboarders - both men and women. While most of the skaters were from California, some came from as far as Japan and England. 28-year-old Bruce Logan of Leucadia - nicknamed "Grandpa" because he was "old for the sport" - was favored to win and had appeared on "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" and "To Tell The Truth."
