"A piece of wood, two trucks, four wheels...a skateboard. You start by rolling down a sidewalk, and end up rolling through life. For some the ride stops at the end of the street; for others the ride never ends. This book was written by those for whom the ride is never-ending: by the 15-year-old grom who falls asleep dreaming of skateboarding; by the 40-something "pad dad" you see at the local skatepark; by the women whose stories have never been told; and by the 73-year-old architect who didn't begin skateboarding until the age of 65. Over 170 stories and 200+ photographs. The 'everyman/everywoman' are accompanied by contributions from some 'notable' skateboarders, and other personalities from the skateboard world... Some of the great skateboarding photographers have graciously contributed to the book."--Description from www.amazon.com

Declaration of Independents is the state of the union address for the most energetic of today's youth cultures. The editors of Heckler magazine, the mouthpiece for the thriving community of skateboarders, snowboarders, and music fans, have assembled hundreds of photographs, original essays, interviews, and profiles of the famous, not-so famous, and utterly notorious figures of the scene over the last two decades. From the generation of Jake Burton, Tony Alva, and Ian Mackaye to today's greats, the editors of Heckler include the athletes and musicians that matter. Together they ponder the big questions: how did everyone get their starts, how has everything changed since the suits and sponsorships walked on the scene, and who still rips? Declaration of Independents puts Heckler magazine's years of frontline writing and photography together in one master document of the forces that will continue to shape our culture for years to come.
