This California-based magazine was launched by John Severson Publications during the mid-1960s at a time when surfing and skateboarding were experiencing their first boom. Although Surf Guide
became the first publication to promote skateboarding, The Quarterly Skateboarder
was the first dedicated magazine. The Dana Point publication only lasted four issues and its disappearance in late 1965 occurred at a time when skateboarding's popularity saw a decline, due in part to citywide bans, and compounded by negative coverage from the national and local media.
