Skateboarding and the City

A Complete History

ISBN: 9781472583451 (PB - E)

Skateboarding is both a sport and a way of life. Creative, physical, graphic, urban and controversial, it is full of contradictions a billion-dollar global industry which still retains its vibrant, counter-cultural heart. Skateboarding and the City presents the only complete history of the sport, exploring the story of skate culture from the surf-beaches of 60s California to the latest developments in street-skating today. Written by a life-long skater who also happens to be an architectural historian, and packed through with full-colour images of skaters, boards, moves, graphics, and film-stills this passionate, readable and rigorously-researched book explores the history of skateboarding and reveals a vivid understanding of how skateboarders, through their actions, experience the city and its architecture in a unique way.
