Heads up, collectors and enthusiasts! Rhyn Noll has put together a detailed look at the evolution of skateboarding that starts in the early twentieth century–with rollerskates, 2″ x 4″ boards, and some improvisation. Catch the concrete wave through the decades, as skateboarding developed into a popular pastime, a competitive sport, and a unique culture all its own. As skating continues to evolve and gain popularity, it’s no wonder that the boards of yesterday are in growing demand on today’s collector’s market. This incredible book combines 693 color photos of decks, wheels, trucks, and other gear that illustrate the sport’s dramatic changes in design and graphics; photos of famous riders in action over seven decades; a huge list of skateparks in the USA; and a useful glossary to help the newcomer get a handle on skateboard lingo. Full pricing information is provided. This book is a required reference for skateboarders, past and present, an excellent resource for collectors, and a fascinating look at an evolving popular culture!
