RTL and the centre for audiovisual content (CNA) have provided us with another glimpse into the past, this time focusing on the skate board day and race held in Longwy in July of 1978.

This week's edition shows images of the skate board day in Longwy, during which a few early enthusiasts were able to show off their skills in a board race. The sport, initially flourishing in the United States, eventually managed to become an established recreational activity across Europe.
