I recently just got back to Portland from a three week California adventure. During my Southern Cali stay I had the pleasure of checking out the pre book launch for Wall To Wall: The Birth of The Freestyle Movement at the Vans Skatepark in Huntington Beach, CA.
Blood, sweat, and tears went into the The Birth of The Freestyle Movement and thanks to Dominic Phipps and Xavier Mendez for archiving these stories and for giving me an exclusive preview of this BMX masterpiece. 240 pages packed into a tangible hard copy book featuring exclusive interviews and photographs documenting the birth of freestyle. From trick-riding in the late 1970s to pool shredding in the late 1980s.
Wall To Wall: The Birth of The Freestyle Movement is a must have! For more information on the project check out: www.w2wfreestylehistory.com
