Skateboard King (UK)

Britain's first skateboard publication - 1977. Announced that it would be monthly but I don't know of any further issues. Most notable for the information about the forthcoming Evening News Championships at Crystal palace (July 24th 1977). The full size action poster turns out to be a random skater at Carlsbad caught stepping onto his board - how radical is that!

Hardly any editorial and rather random photos - it does however advertise; 'How to be a Skateboard King' - a complete guide to Skateboarding - which I have yet to trace, if indeed it did get published.
