From Wikipedia:

Skaterdater is a short film that was released in 1965. It was written and directed by Noel Black and was the winner of the Palme d'Or for Best Short Film at the 1966 Cannes Film Festival. It was also nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Short Subject category.

The film has no dialogue. The surf rock-esque soundtrack was composed by Mike Curb and Nick Venet.

It was one of the first films that heavily featured skateboarding.

The skateboard riders where members of The Imperial Skateboard Team from Torrance, California. Their names are Gary Hill, Gregg Carrol, Mike Mel, Bill McKaig, Gary Jennings, Bruce McKaig and Rick Anderson.

I found the full length movie on Google video, the original film was in color, but this version is black & white. There are clips of the color version on you tube.
