The Bun Board skateboard – First commercial skateboard
In Hermosa 1957 a retired Alf Jensen built the “Bun Boards” with steel wheels and sold them e.g. through the Guild Drug store at the price 2,88USD.
The name “Bun Board” comes from that the decks was trashed hickory boards that a local bakery had used for baking their buns.
This was probably the first commercially sold skateboard.
