still bored – snow skate surf graphics…


this book tells about the histroy of graphics in skate/snow/surf-scene; why? because graphic is (after skills) very important for this sports; its not just the cool look, its to show that there is a difference between normal citizens and skater; so its also not just about elbowroom, the baggy-style is a sign;

you couldn´t skate in parks, halls etc. in the early years of skatboarding, they where always outsider and aliens in the city; also snowboarders in the very beginning; we weren´t allowed to take the same lifts, the same slopes and there was always the skier-snowboarder “fight”;

the time when these sports where subcultures is over – these sports became marketing-strategies;

interested? read that.
