The story of the people who forged and inspired the phenomenon of skateboarding, one of the great outlaw subcultures, combining death-defying stunts, cutting-edge fashion, and an all-round bad attitude; and a scene that led Tony Hawk to be the first millionaire skater.
The first literary investigation and memoir of a cultural and sporting phenomenon.
Jocko Weyland's fiction and non-fiction has appeared in Open City magazine and Metropolis, among others. His third gallery show of photography was mounted last summer at the Steffany Martz gallery
