Synopsis

Skateboarding Past-Present-Future by Rhyn Noll

Meet the outstanding, courageous men and women of skateboarding from the birth of the sport to the present. Starting in California in the 1960s and evolving to the first national Street Competition in Philadelphia in 2001, this sport has grown, gone into exile, and come out at skateparks across the country. The daring people who live the fun and push the bounds of speed, vertical takeoffs, and stunts are featured here, through hundreds of color photographs and first-hand accounts. Each of the 38 skateboarders are discussed in detail, including such legends as Atilla Aszodi, Don Hamilton, and Bob Turner. Their stories inspire respect; their awesome courage and dedication helped create a whole new sport, which now draws thousands to discover the thrill of flight.
