What to expect

Join Andrew Mashigo for a group tour describing the highlights of the SKATEBOARD exhibition currently showing at London’s Design Museum. Within the elegantly simple parameters of its key components – deck, trucks, and wheels – skaters have repeatedly re-designed the skateboard to suit their performance style and surroundings.

Since the 1950s, skateboarding has developed from a novel children’s hobby into one of the most popular, accessible, and spectacular sports in the world.
