Stale Fish: Dirtbag Skate Culture from the Dirtbags Who Made it


    How is being a pro skater different from being, say, a professional golfer? Veteran skate journalist and former pro skater Sean Mortimer has interviewed the top skaters of all time to answer that question in different and hilarious ways. Tony Hawk, Stacey Peralta, Rodney Mullen, Daewon Song, and Chris Haslam are handful of the skaters who opine on ollies, demos, mass riots, near arrests, and the various ways in which skating is bad for your love life. With over 50,000 words straight from the skaters themselves and graphic black and white photographs, "Stale Fish" functions as a gritty oral history of professional skating.
