Check this documentary about the world’s first snake run poured in 1976 in Western Australia. You may remember it from the Guy Mariano cover in 2006 shot Filmmaker Tim Zafir made this video to get The Snake Run to be heritage listed by Australia. Here’s his description of what the film is about, “In 1976 a rag-tag mob of surfers and high school students poured the world’s first downhill skateboarding track. Unknown to the broader community and even the local townsfolk, the Albany Snake Run is infamous amongst the skateboarding community and attracts many enthusiast pilgrims from across the globe. Today, it remains a relic of the past, modestly waiting to test any rider who dares to test its weathered concrete surface. The Snake-Run documents the passion of the local grass roots surf and skate culture. A movement that lead to the construction of the oldest existing skate track in the world and the extent of its influence can be felt from South America to the United States and Europe.”
