Mystery Skaters – Sweden

Can you help identify these skateboarders? The photographer is Ingmar Jernberg from Gothenburg, Sweden. I know that it’s 1979 and the photo says Stjärnhusen, which I assume refers to the housing complex in the photo series. The neighbourhood is called Frölunda. Apparently, Tony Alva might have met them on his first European Tour. I think they look pretty badass.

Update on May 27, 2022 from Swedish skateboarder Catharina Sterner. Katta wrote via Instagram: “The two cool gals names are ‘Gockan and Carina’ they were locals at skateland but played more soccer then skateboarding. Photo by @ingmarjernberg
