Book Description

20 Sep 2004
Early forms of skateboarding first emerged in the United States in the 1950s and the sport has been popular on and off ever since the 1970s. Now it is back bigger than ever. Skateboarders are everywhere and skateboarding style is too. Like surfing, skateboarding is a sport with a philosophy and a culture very much its own. Skate culture is anti-establishment and part of the trend away from team sports towards something more individual. Life is too tame without a bit of danger in it and skateboarding is perfect to keep the blood flowing. Skateboarding Is Not A Crime highlights the individual nature of boarding culture, with its cutting-edge fashion and street philosophy, and reproduces it on the page in all its unruly glory.
