The Z-Boys, Zephyr Competition Team was a group of Venice skateboarders in the mid-1970s that invented popular skateboarding moves and brought the sport to the forefront of where it is today.
A little history, from Wikipedia:
The crew, who began as a surf team, derived their name from the Zephyr surfboard shop in Santa Monica. Jeff Ho, Skip Engblom and Craig Stecyk opened the Santa Monica shop as Jeff Ho Surfboards and Zephyr Productions in 1971.
In 1974, Allen Sarlo, Jay Adams, Tony Alva, Chris Cahill and Stacy Peralta, joined the surf team. The place that the team spent most of their time surfing was at Pacific Ocean Park, a once thriving amusement park atop a pier.
