9780060563592: Have Board, Will Travel: The Definitive History of Surf, Skate, and Snow

Have Board, Will Travel is the most definitive surf/skate/snow book ever published. It's perfect for all boarders, with colour–coded storylines, iconic graphics, and an innovative design for the most interactive read ever.

The book covers everything from the best places to ride to brief histories of each sport to lifestyles, personalities, performance, designs, and insider tips. It begins with surfing (half of the content), moves to skateboarding (about a third of the content), then it hits snowboarding (one–fifth of the content), to give the reader an insightful perspective on all of these things – to inform, entertain, and make them want to go out and ride.

With a great design, the book is clean, hip and reader–friendly, so you can flip to any page and learn something cool about a sport.

About the Author:

Jamie Brisick surfs, skates, snowboards, and ping-pongs back and forth between Southern California and São Paulo, Brazil. He has written for boardsporting magazines for more than ten years, surfed on the ASP world tour for five, and recently wrote and photographed a book about the wanderlust lifestyle entitled We Approach Our Martinis With Such High Expectations.

From School Library Journal:

Adult/High School–In this big, beautiful title, Brisick shows how surfing, skateboarding, and snowboarding developed, each one feeding off the advancements and buzz of the others. The author skims the surface of these multimillion-dollar industries with just a paragraph or two, and an occasional quote, per page. Because of the superficial nature of the text, there are some gaps, including the lack of attention given to Laird Hamilton, one of the biggest surfers of the past decade. But browsers and reluctant readers are going to be more interested in the large, colorful photographs from a variety of historical and contemporary sources. Also included are drawn maps of great surf spots of the world, and snow and skate parks of the U.S. Board-sports fans might not find a lot of new information, but they'll enjoy reliving the action.–Jamie Watson, Harford County Public Library, MD
