Product description

Whether you need to hitchhike, hop a freight train, or mow 1,000 lawns to afford a plane ticket, there are certain places on this planet you just gotta skate. From the folks who brought you Insane Terrain and Skate and Destroy, as well as skateboarding's monthly bible, Thrasher magazine, comes the newest must-have skate book: Epic Spots. From the hills of San Francisco to the DIY 'crete under the Burnside Bridge, or even the fast sandpaper surfaces of Hawaii's legendary Wallos ditch, Epic Spots is a sensory overload of color photos and words from the legends who first skated these Meccas--all the stoke you need to hit the road on your own epic search! Epic Spots offers up dozens and dozens of guides to these spots around the world. Aside from specific locations and directions, each spot will be rated as to the quality and features of its terrain; whether the structure was built specifically for skateboarding, and if so, who was behind the construction; suggested skill levels required to ride the park or spot, a list of its good and bad aspects, and whether or not pads are required.

the pictures are good if you are interested in skating but it doesnt let you know exactly where the places are, just a country which i thought it would. good book for the skate enthusiast but not great as a reference.
