DOGTOWN - THE LEGEND OF THE Z-BOYS
C.R Stecyk III - Glen E. Friedman
[LifeStyle - Skateboard - Z-Boys]
In the early 1970s, the sport of skateboarding had so waned from its popularity in the 1960s that it was virtually nonexistent. In the DogTown area of west Los Angeles, a group of young surfers known as the Zephyr Team (Z-Boys) was experimenting with new and radical moves and styles in the water, which they translated to the street. When competition skateboarding returned in 1975, the Z-Boys turned the skating world on its head. These are the stories and images of a time that not only inspired a generation but changed the face of the sport forever. The first section of the book includes the best of the DogTown articles written and photographed by C.R. Stecyk III as they originally appeared in SkateBoarder Magazine. The second half compiles hundreds of skate images from the archives of Glen E. Friedman. Featuring Jay Adams, Jim Muir, Paul Constantineau, Stacy Peralta, Tony Alva and all others.
