Overview

Whether on water, pavement, or fluffy white powder, the history of surfing,skateboarding, and snowboarding is a landscape filled with rugged personalities, exotic locales, wild innovation, and most of all the united dream of becoming one with the oceans, streets, and mountains.

Have Board, Will Travel shows the intricate connection between all three sports. Their histories act as the grand foundation, the images serve as divine inspiration, and each page is filled with enough side-stanced glory to summon even the laziest couch potato to pick up a board and ride.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Adult/High School-In this big, beautiful title, Brisick shows how surfing, skateboarding, and snowboarding developed, each one feeding off the advancements and buzz of the others. The author skims the surface of these multimillion-dollar industries with just a paragraph or two, and an occasional quote, per page. Because of the superficial nature of the text, there are some gaps, including the lack of attention given to Laird Hamilton, one of the biggest surfers of the past decade. But browsers and reluctant readers are going to be more interested in the large, colorful photographs from a variety of historical and contemporary sources. Also included are drawn maps of great surf spots of the world, and snow and skate parks of the U.S. Board-sports fans might not find a lot of new information, but they'll enjoy reliving the action.-Jamie Watson, Harford County Public Library, MD Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
