"A piece of wood, two trucks, four wheels ... a skateboard. You start by rolling down a sidewalk, and end up rolling through life. For some the ride stops at the end of the street; for others the ride never ends. This book was written by those for whom the ride is never-ending: by the 15-year-old grom who falls asleep dreaming of skateboarding; by the 40-something "pad dad" you see at the local skatepark; by the women whose stories have never been told; and by the 73-year-old architect who didn't begin skateboarding until the age of 65. Over 170 stories and 200+ photographs. The 'everyman/everywoman' are accompanied by contributions from some 'notable' skateboarders, and other personalities from the skateboard world ... Some of the great skateboarding photographers have graciously contributed to the book."--Description from

Haven't you ever wondered where time comes from, or what it's made of? Does it go on endlessly, or is there just a certain amount of it, like grains of sand in an egg timer? Is every bit of time the same as every other, or are there different types here and there? Why do some people struggle to cope if they have too much time, whilst others never seem to be able to find enough?What if time works differently for some people? People like Timothy Swift, for instance. He's always trying to find some time, to make time, to buy a little time...because he always has too much to do, and never enough time to do it in.But the funny thing is, no matter how little time Timothy has, he somehow gets everything done. And, remarkably, even when he doesn't have a single moment to spare, he can almost always find enough time do one more thing.And what about dreams? Does time work the same in dreams?

Ramp tricks—skate moves made on, over, or around wood ramps, cement bowls, and half-pipes—are a key, albeit challenging, component of skateboarding. Hundreds of captioned, sequential photographs demonstrate precisely how these exacting moves are safely made in this indispensable guide to 40 ramp tricks. Beginning with basic moves, including stalls, grinds, and slides, skaters gradually learn the particular positioning and balance needed to perform more advanced tricks such as flips and airs. A brief history of ramp skateboarding examines the birth of the genre as well as champions of the sport, including the pioneering Dogtown Crew and current stars Bob Burnquist and Tony Hawk.

Skateboarding is both a sport and a way of life. Creative, physical, graphic, urban and controversial, it is full of contradictions – a billion-dollar global industry which still retains its vibrant, counter-cultural heart. Skateboarding and the City presents the only complete history of the sport, exploring the story of skate culture from the surf-beaches of '60s California to the latest developments in street-skating today. Written by a life-long skater who also happens to be an architectural historian, and packed through with full-colour images – of skaters, boards, moves, graphics, and film-stills – this passionate, readable and rigorously-researched book explores the history of skateboarding and reveals a vivid understanding of how skateboarders, through their actions, experience the city and its architecture in a unique way.

This book explores God through the eyes of a skateboarder, using stories from the world of skateboarding to explain who God is and what God's like. When a skater first learns to street skate, pop an ollie, or ride a ramp; there is a buzz of excitement! It's the thrill of riding a skateboard joined with the fun of learning a new trick. There's a similar thrill when someone begins a relationship with God. Each step into faith can brings fun and joy, like learning a new trick. Life's journey is a bit like skating through a town. There may be high ledges and the ideal double-set but is there a purpose for it all? Is there a God who created us? What happens at the end of our lives? By exploring core issue (a skater's identity, when a skate park feels so good it's almost like heaven, the near miraculous nature of some skate tricks, the dark 'slide' of life, and whether we worship) this book aims to helps skaters and non-skaters alike take a fresh look at the God who is totally for all people, who calls us to come just as we are.

This book explores the ways in which religion is observed, performed, and organised in skateboard culture. Drawing on scholarship from the sociology of religion and the cultural politics of lifestyle sports, this work combines ethnographic research with media analysis to argue that the rituals of skateboarding provide participants with a rich cultural canvas for emotional and spiritual engagement. Paul O’Connor contends that religious identification in skateboarding is set to increase as participants pursue ways to both control and engage meaningfully with an activity that has become an increasingly mainstream and institutionalised sport. Religion is explored through the themes of myth, celebrity, iconography, pilgrimage, evangelism, cults, and self-help.
