Skateboarding and the City: A Complete History By Iain Borden

Bought for Christmas Pressie for nephew. He loved it! Iain Borden Trash, waste of paper and money Iain Borden Exhaustivo y bien explicado (en inglés), con un enfoque muy global del skate, no se deja nada en el tintero, ni siquiera temas más teóricos y filosóficos, además de explicar su historia bajo muchos puntos de vista (los skaters, la técnica, los espacios, los medios, las marcas). Imprescindible para conocer el skate en su globalidad. Iain Borden Extremely comprehensive and detailed Iain Borden With great love for detail and a wide spektum of skateboard history, this book is the best out there. Capturing all aspects of skateboarding and not just street skating. Well done! Iain Borden
