Wonder Woman on a Skateboard in “Skateboard Wiz” (1978)

Wonder Woman (Lynda Carter) does a spin change into a skateboard outfit that consists of a helmet, elbow pads, and knee pads. Then, on skateboard, she chases some bad guys in a car. Clip is from the TV show “Wonder Woman” titled “Skateboard Wiz” (1978).

“Skateboard Wiz” is the eighth episode of season three of the superhero fantasy series The New Adventures of Wonder Woman and the forty-fourth episode of the series overall. It was directed by Leslie H. Martinson with a script written by Alan Brennert. It first aired on CBS on Friday, November 24, 1978.

This is the only episode in which Wonder Woman uses a skateboard (to catch up with the henchmen’s car as they try to escape), and the only appearance of her skateboarding costume (which adds gloves, elbow pads, knee pads, and a helmet with her crest to her regular costume). The red skateboard helmet is much different from her gold motorcycle helmet. Lynda is initially shown wearing her usual high-heeled boots, but subsequent shots of her skateboarding stunt double all show her wearing flats.
