Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Adult/High School-Following on the success of The Concrete Wave (Warwick, 1999), Brooke traces the history of skateboarding through four decades of legendary riders, from the '60s through the '90s. Each decade is preceded by a short overview of the sport at that time. The remainder of the section concentrates on the skateboarders' backgrounds, successes, and impact on the sport and the industry. Skateboarding enjoyed a resurgence in the '90s with the introduction of the X Games, street skating, and popular video games such as Tony Hawk Pro Skater. The chapters on the '80s and '90s have better photos, capturing riders in midair performing daring, gravity-defying tricks and stunts. All enthusiasts of this sport will find this book interesting and entertaining.-Patricia White-Williams, Kings Park Library, Fairfax County, VA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    The Skateboarders you need to know about!

    If you want to know who made skateboarding what it is today (in its many styles and forms), this is the book. Jam packed with the Who's-Who of four-wheels, metal and wood, this takes you through the decades of the heros, men and women, the Skate Legends. Gotta have on the shelf.

    Skating through the years....

    A must for for all skaters. If you are a young skater its like a fun history lesson and for us older skaters its a look into the past. A book that has the top skaters from the 60's through the 90's. Great write ups on the skaters along with killer photos of them in action. This book shows and tells of the evolution of skating through the skaters that helped it happen. Keep skating and keep the legends alive.....
