The Skateboarder's Journal : Lives On Board 1949-2009

by Jack Smith
 
A piece of wood, two trucks, four wheels...a skateboard. You start by rolling down a sidewalk, and end up rolling through life. For some the ride stops at the end of the street; for others the ride never ends. This book was written by those for whom the ride is never-ending: by the 15-year-old grom who falls asleep dreaming of skateboarding; by the 40-something

Overview

A piece of wood, two trucks, four wheels...a skateboard. You start by rolling down a sidewalk, and end up rolling through life. For some the ride stops at the end of the street; for others the ride never ends. This book was written by those for whom the ride is never-ending: by the 15-year-old grom who falls asleep dreaming of skateboarding; by the 40-something "pad dad" you see at the local skatepark; by the women whose stories have never been told; and by the 73-year-old architect who didn't begin skateboarding until the age of 65. Over 170 stories and 200+ photographs. The "everyman/everywoman" are accompanied by contributions from some "notable" skateboarders, and other personalities from the skateboard world that I have come to know since I began skateboarding in 1974. Some of the great skateboarding photographers have graciously contributed to the book. 333 pages. Introduction by Jack Smith Foreword by Stacy Peralta Edited by Jonathan Harms Cover and Book Design by Adrian Pina
