A world-champion freestyle skateboarder traces the history of skating as well as the story of his own life, describing his family of overachievers, his father's disapproval of the author's skating ambitions, the disability that challenged his career, and his successes as an extreme sportsperson and multi-million-dollar skateboard company owner.

The Big Brother Book

Author Sean Cliver
|
Published 2016-03

No other magazine pushed the boundaries of skateboarding and pop culture like Big Brother, the raunchiest, rowdiest magazine to come out of the 1990s. Constantly at the center of much-deserved controversy, the rag has been decried as pornography, bought and unexpectedly dropped by Larry Flynt of the Hustler empire, and credited as the genesis of the Jackass universe; it was also the champion of unknown skaters and featured some of today's biggest names in skate culture when they were just children. Now author Sean Cliver puts a bow on the publication with The Big Brother Book, a collection of covers and spreads from every issue of the notorious publication. Featuring high-quality scans of the magazine itself no production or layout files remain in existence with just enough text to explain what's going on and choice quotes from each issue, this book makes it easy as well as fun to stoop to Big Brother's level.

One crazy year on the California coast--in 1975 a hippie skunkworks, bred in garages and shacks, launched the modern skater movement. Strap in for a wild ride replete with two car chases, two plane crashes, a massive truck bomb, Colombian narcos, the Mafia, senior White House staff, a gypsy fortuneteller, three straight-up miracles, Jacques Cousteau, big piles of cocaine and naked hippie chicks.
