A Secret History Of The Ollie Book Now Available

Every culture has a creation myth and skateboarding is no different. The Ollie forged a new identity for skateboarding after its invention in the 1970s, and it lies at the root of nearly every significant move in street skating today. This groundbreaking no-handed aerial has also affected the evolution of surfing and snowboarding, and has left a permanent impression upon popular culture and language.

This is the story of the Ollie, the technology that set the stage for its creation, the pioneers who made it happen, and the skaters who used it to start a revolution.  Contributing photographers include Jim Goodrich, Lance Smith, Bruce Walker, Al Porterfield, Hunter Joslin, Jonathan Utz, J. Grant Brittain, and Nicolas Delvalle.
