Product description

A collector's book featuring rare, historically important skateboards from all corners of the globe, Surf to Skate captures the craftsmanship of the early movement. Authors Stanton Hartsfield and Jason Cohn, known collectively as Scavenger, have curated the pages in a timeline, tracing the roots of skateboarding from steel roller skate wheels nailed to planks in the 1950s to their clay-wheeled cousins of the 1960s. For many, this book is a trip down memory lane. For others, it gives a sense of the genesis and early roots of the skateboard. Chapters include "Shop Boards," with distinctive, early iterations of decks by Hobie, Makaha, and Val Surf, "Paradise," reflecting the infatuation with all things Hawaiian from Tiki motifs to Hawaii 5-0, and the midcentury fascination with the space race is embodied in the rocket-emblazoned boards within "Final Frontier." With influences ranging from art to advertising, Surf to Skate reflects the evolution of skateboarding and pop culture in general.
