ICON | Peggy Oki


Film stills of Peggy Oki skating in the 1970s from Dogtown and Z-Boys (2002) via screenshot.

"Some of the girls didn’t like the fact that I skated like a guy, so they protested me to the judges and one of the judges said I skated better than some of the guys." —Peggy Oki

LOVE Peggy Oki! I was a child of the 70s and she was a great inspiration!

Really appreciate your site but "via my iPad" is really a turn off. Unless Apple is giving you a sponsorship, it just seems uninteresting to mention it.

"Via my iPad" is to clarify that the images were created by a screen shot and not sourced from the internet. How to properly source photos on the internet is something people are having a real dialogue about today; I'm trying to be as accurate as possible. I'm open to other ideas if you have any.

The top right picture is Shogo Kubo, not Peggy Oki.
