Woodpusher or Wood Pusher, a nickname, originally the term was used at the transition time of wood boards from the mass-produced, plastic “banana” board, in the mid to late 80's. It was named for the foward kicking motion to propel the skateboard forward.
Origin time: Mid 80's. The term was first used in and around Richmond and Vancouver, BC Canada, about the same time that Kevin Harris opened the Indoor Richmond Skate Ranch with Tony Hawk. The Richmond Skate Ranch, was an indoor skateboard facility featuring multiple ramps and wooden park features, including the "mini Chin", a complex multi-ramp structure designed by Lance Mountain, located in Richmond, British Columbia Canada. The Ranch closed in 1993.
The skater or group of skaters would go by and a non-skater person would scream "Woodpusher" as they went skating by.
