REVIEWS & PRAISE
"Everyone thinks they know the skateboarding's history but what they really know is a series of half-facts compounded by hype and amnesia. This book will rewrite skateboarding history as we know it." - Betsy Gordon, curator of "Ramp It Up," Smithsonian Institution
"It sheds a very bright light on a revolutionary time in skateboarding." - Thrasher magazine
"It is beyond anything that has ever been published before." - Michael Brooke, publisher of Concrete Wave Magazine
"This will be the reference point for all other '70s-era skate histories going forward." - Eastern Surf Magazine
"Craig Snyder's work is much more than a secret history of the Ollie. It is a first-rate account of skateboarding. Set against the backdrop of the sun-drenched coastal towns of Southern California and South Florida of the 1970s, this book transports readers to the era in which the acrobatics of today's X Games were born." -- H. Michael Gelfand, James Madison University
