This book's previous title "Thrasher Insane Terrain" has sold 17,000 copies worldwide. The Thrasher audience are devoted skateboarders and this is their bible! Substantial press expected, with reviews in nationals and skate magazines. "Skate and Destroy": 25 Years of "Thrasher Magazine" is more than just a 288 page retrospective of Thrasher's first quarter century. The magazine's staff, past and present, left no file cabinet or ramp unturned in seeking out the lost photos, the covers that never were, outtakes from interviews that defined the mag, never-been-told stories of secret skate missions, and accounts from skateboarding's top pros of what Thrasher has meant to them. Filled with the adrenaline pumping, gnar photos, and original and noteworthy content fans expect from "Thrasher Magazine", this excellent volume is packed with phenomenal photos, interviews, and articles from skateboarding's leaders: Tony Hawk, Bucky Lasek, Steve Caballero, Rodney Mullen, and Chad Muska, to name a few. Highlights from each of Thrasher's 25 years will be organized by chapter, fully detailing the evolution of the magazine and staff, with a special focus on the events of the last ten years.
"Thrasher Magazine" made its debut in 1981. Published by High Speed Productions and headquartered in San Francisco, CA, it is considered to be the skateboarder's bible.
