HASH(0x8df53b28) étoiles sur 5 A very well written and researched history of skateboarding. 27 juillet 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
It makes me feel old seeing as to how The Concrete Wave is a history book and most of the events mentioned happened in my lifetime. But I'm not over the hill by any stretch of the imagination. Hailing from Long Beach California I saw skate culture rise and fall and rise again in the 80's and 90's. Skate fashion, culture and music where very influential in my neighborhood. Many of my friends skated, not me, I had less coordination than the proverbial bull in the china shop. But it didn't stop me from making plenty of skater friends. There are many skate stories in the back of my mind. Author Michael Brooke helped me remember the better ones. The Concrete Wave is one of the best books I've picked up in a long while. Michael carefully researched and put together a fine read featuring articles and interviews from the biggest names in skating. The industry of skateboarding is not overlooked in this book. The founders and pioneers of the sport also have a prominent place in The Concrete Wave. There were a few things left out in this edition. Die hard skaters want more one-on-one interviews. Old-school skaters want more of the history. But for the first edition of any skateboarding history book, the Concrete Wave is interesting and great read. If you're an old-time skateboarder, someone who's never tried the sport or someone new to skateboarding I'd recommend The Concrete Wave highly. I look forward to reading every edition of the Concrete Wave down the road.

HASH(0x8df53fd8) étoiles sur 5 Early History of Skateboarding 1 mars 2003
Par M. Allen Greenbaum - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This 1999 book is more like a bunch of 'zines stitched together than a straightforward histroy of skateboarding: There are lots of sidebars, numerous authors and topics, full-page illustrations that look like ads, and unexpected excursions into such areas as "Skateboards at the Movies."
Still, there's a lot of love within this book. Those of you who enjoyed the recent documentary, "Dogtown and the Z-Boys," will find a similar fan/participant enthusiasm here. The early years are emphasized: The index lists Tony Hawk on only about 10 pages, and the X-games on only 4 pages. Still, for a chronicle of (especially) the early years of skateboarding, for its photos, density of information, and the enthusiasm of the writers, this is a good book for the skateboarding fan. 197 pages of text, an index, lots of photos, and five interesting appendices: "Pros of the Last 40 Years," "Skateboards at the Movies," "Skateboard Competitions (through 1993 only)," "Memorable Skateparks of North America," and "Skate 'Zines." What's really needed is an updated version of the book.

HASH(0x8e24e054) étoiles sur 5 Ok History, Wack Design + Organization 5 juillet 2001
Par A. Ross - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book grew out of author Brooke's work on the SkateGeezer web site, and while it does do a pretty decent job at recounting the history of skateboarding, it suffers badly from shoddy editing and poor design. The book is divided into the four "waves" of skating (1959-65, 1973-80, 1983-91, 1993-present), each of which has a one or two page introduction, followed by a mix of pieces on the technological developments, interviews, random skater stories, and company profiles and histories. This format makes it easy to pick up and flip through, reading here and there at random (much like a Web site), but if you read it cover to cover, it's not very cohesive. The book is probably strongest in detailing the progression and development of various manufacturing techniques and materials in making boards, the section on urethane wheels is especially good. Where it's weakest is in dealing with some of the "cultural" components of skating. For example, references are made to tension between "skate and destroy" and "skate to create" philosophies of skating, but what those terms mean isn't explained very well. The book could use considerable editing, as some of the pieces seem to be lifted straight from hastily written e-mails, there are a number of typos, and the apostrophe is consistently misused. I can live with those things in a DIY 'zine, but in a $20 book, it's unacceptable. The photos are a mixed bag, with the older 70s stuff being pretty interesting, but most of the newer stuff being sub par. The book's overall design is a joke, it's hands down, the most poorly designed full color book I've ever seen. It's amazing that a publisher would fork out the considerable money required to print a full color book, and then turn something out where the typography, use of photos, graphics, screens, and sidebars, looks like a 10-year old was running the show. If it was properly edited, reorganized, and totally redesigned, then I would consider it a book worth getting, otherwise I'd suggest snaking a friend's copy if you must read it.

HASH(0x8df07e64) étoiles sur 5 a REAL look at skateboarding by someone who skates! 19 juillet 1999

Finally a book about skateboarding that is actually written by someone who skates. The forword written by Rodney Mullen and the Alva interview also adds to the books credibility. Nice job.

The Concrete Wave
Being a skateboarder myself, I thought this was a great book. I think anybody who wants to know something about skating, the history of it and its's roots, this is the book for you. I think this book could be a great resource for a report for school or something. I recommend this book!!!
